    DIY Single use topical abc antibiotic ointment + unused drinking straw + pliers to pinch & lighter to seal ends! Tada- travel 1st aide! Love this idea.

  • Stephanie Whittington Mojica

    MAKE YOUR OWN SINGLE USE ANTIBIOTIC PACKS /////// It is often too cumbersome to carry a big tube of antibiotic ointment. As for me personally, I would love to throw a small pack like the ones shown here, in my purse or backpack and just go. But from what I read in these articles, it's 69 cents a pack. Not that it is super expensive but this is an even cheaper way. Brilliant really. ///////////// NOTE: I've yet to have one of these burst or fail on me. Simple, affordable, and very convenient. /////////// MATERIALS: 1.) A tube of antibiotic ointment. 2.) A plastic drinking straw (preferably transparent). 3.) a Bic lighter 4.) needle-nose pliers. ////////////// DIRECTIONS: STEP ONE: Place the straw over the opening of the ointment tube and carefully squeeze in a small amount of the ointment that is approximately one quarter of an inch in length. (You'll notice that transparent straws work best for this). Use you fingers to squeeze the end of the straw so that it pushes the ointment further up inside the plastic straw. This will provide a clean area for sealing the end of the straw without having the ointment ooze out while you are holding it with your pliers. STEP TWO: Hold the end of the straw with your needle-nose pliers so that a small amount of the straw is protruding. This will be used to melt and seal the end of the straw. Take your Bic lighter and carefully melt the end of the straw so that it forms a seal. I like to quickly pinch the melted end with my pliers to ensure a good seal. STEP THREE: Turn the straw around and find the point where the ointment went up to inside the straw. Pinch just past that with your needle-nose pliers and cut off the excess straw with a pair of scissors making sure to leave a small amount of the straw protruding for sealing with your lighter just as you did in the first step. //////////////// Now you have a single use packet of antibiotic ointment that you can carry with you as part of your UL backpacking first aid kit.

To make very small, single use packets of antibiotic ointment using a generic alternative to Neosporin and a clean (unused) drinking straw. Then seal with a needle nose pliers and a lighter. Very smart!

Painted wood floor: fill in any large gouges or scrapes, and sand the entire floor lightly. you can use nearly any paint on the floor, but if you're concerned about it rubbing off with traffic, talk to the people in the paint store/department. you can also get clear acrylic sealer to paint over the floor once it's dried and once cured, it'll protect the paint job.
