Sanitation 3: The LatrineIn this episode of Reality Check, we are continuing with part 2 of sanitation, literally. On this show our number 1 focus is on number 2. Everyone knows it by the same name whether latrine, loo, out house, head, water closet, privy, potty, or toilet. It is something that we are all going to have to do once it hits the fan. Dealing with human waste is a very touchy subject, but one we all will have to deal with. Ignoring proper bathroom sanitation can lead to disease, sickness, and death.

Sanitation and Personal CleanlinessThis week on Reality Check we are continuing where we left off last week in discussing sanitation and what to do when nature calls. Last week EK covered a lot of topics on what to do when you are grid down and Mother Nature comes knocking. EK covered the importance of having clean water to rinse off and bath even though it was without soap. In the first show, EK covered the fact that when the grid goes down things will eventually stop working. Trash will pile up along with human waste and you as the prepper of your household will have to deal with it and how to dispose of things. EK covered the hair, head, underarms, and upper body.
