Oldy but a goody! Couple other options are you can use a heat sealer and put anything you want in them. Olive oil, clorox, honey, clotting powder, hot sauce, etc. etc. if you do a bunch I would suggest a clear labeling system i would not want to mix up bleach with olive oil. Put 4 drops of bleach in a little piece of straw and seal and your ready to treat 1 liter/quart of water for drinking, just let it sit for half an hour and your ready to go! Maybe some hot pink for the bleach and use some really big McDonald's Straws for Olive oil.

Idea as long as you could heat seal it with out catching the cotton on fire you could have yourself a water proof tinder source. Same thought with some magnesium powder, That one may be a little tricky better seal that outside away from flamables and properties, lol! :mrgreen:

They are hard to open. Scizzors are needed or very sharp knife.. I would think 1 inch ziplocs would be better.

Boy Scouts would have them ripped open with their teeth before I would even begin to put my hand in my pocket to get the knife out :lol: :lol: They are impatient when it comes to eating :mrgreen:

I saw that too but haven't tried it yet. So far the little salt and pepper packets I stole from my local Arby's have worked well! ;)

Along with some Strawberry or Blackberry Jam. I leave the salt alone but will take plenty of pepper. Sometimes, I take a small "OR Kitchen" set and fill one container with Coarse ground black pepper. It's good on eggs, Zelph. :mrgreen: I too, like eggs ! :mrgreen:
