BATHING – Do upper & lower body separate, keeping each body half dressed & warm as you go. Fill small spritz bottle w/hot soapy water mixed (your choice) and wash couple body parts with cloth. Then take another small spritz bottle with hot water and rinse & dry with cloth. Use a third small spritz bottle of vinegar & water, for feet & other odor areas. For hair, use waterless shampoo option. Use a SOLAR GARDEN LIGHT for interior lighting at night if no electricity.
EMERGENCY WEATHER ALERT RADIO AND CELL PHONE CHARGER – Hand crank, no electricity or batteries required. Midland Brand, NOAA model, research for the type you want.
SLEEPING BAG WARM ALL NIGHT: Fill 6-pack size cooler with HOT bottles of water, Get in bag with 2 hot bottles. Shut Heater off. Reach out of bag and replace bottles if needed during night. Reach out of bag & click heater on in AM to pre-heat vehicle. Another option use “zippo pocket heater” in bag with you, lasts 12 hrs.

WINDOWS – For stealth windows don’t blackout windows but white them out, for cooler glass and inside temps. White glass makes interior look lighter, brighter, roomier, cheerier. Black glass draws too much attention and gets too hot. Black reminds people and cops of MAFIA tint. Also, get four “exterior window visors” to hide cracked windows for venting and keep out rain. They also block inside light from showing through the cracked windows. Use Rain-X for outside. Also use on inside windows to prevent condensation and makes routine cleaning of glass easier.
TOILET – A 5 gal. bucket and throwaway plastic bags as liners with NEW not used bags because they can have undetectable holes. Or get a folding handicap aluminum potty chair with removable pot. For no wash maintenance, line potty tray with new bags and throw-a-way plastic bags.
