3. Steel Wool
Steel wool is not only for scrubbing pots. You can use steel wool in creating fire. All you have to do is rub the steel wool into a battery. It is easy to create a fire using steel wool because it was made up of very fine steel and a small spark can easily ignite the steel wool.
4. Duct Tape
Duct tape is a very useful tool for survival purposes, that’s why preppers love to use duct tape.

5. Mini-Pry bar
You can use this tool for getting out of obstacles like opening a door when you are trapped. You can also use it for self-defense.
6. Animal Repellents
It can be used as an alternative for pepper spray. Purchasing pepper spray requires a license in many states. Unlike pepper spray you don’t need to get a license in purchasing or using animal repellents. Wasp spray can be used as a defensive tool when you are being attacked. You can also use it from a longer range which makes a good distance from you and your attacker. Halt Dog Repellent can be used to daze or confuse your attacker so you can easily escape from your attacker.
Aspirin is useful for preppers too. Aspirin can be used in:
