Things you can make with barrels. So far Ive mentioned water filtration, cold storage, sanitation and water heaters. In this part Ive listed links on how to make a laundry clothes washer from barrels. The top link from city prepper shows a great system using three buckets that is great for minimal people if the power goes down for a few weeks but the links below that show how to use large barrels to manufacture a washing machine that is bicycle operated and can service a small community off grid.

Lets head to the hills and bug out I often hear, well good luck most people would last two weeks. In a large camp without knowing proper sanitation practices you open yourselves up to the following health issues

Poor sanitation is linked to transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid and polio and the spread of intestinal worms, schistosomiasis and trachoma. 20 people trying to do laundry in a creek, there goes the water supply. Just something else to consider.
