Wengie has a number of do it yourself survival life hacks including how to filter water, catch rain for drinking, a safe place for spare cash, a make shift dust mask, how to put together a compass, and how to hunt for food in the wilderness. Water can be filtered by using two containers and a piece of cloth. Wengie suggests tearing a portion of your t-shirt for the cloth needed and then hanging it on one end of bottle that contains the dirty water while permitting the water to drain into the clean bottle. Once the clean water bottle is filled, one will need to boil the water prior to drinking it. A rain catcher can be constructed by cutting out the end of a plastic bottle and then fanning out the ends to form a flower like result. The ends fanned out will catch the rain water which can be accumulated by placing the plastic bottle into a glass.
Many times one will struggle finding some spare cash when in a pinch. Wengie suggests placing a few dollars in the cover of your cell phone so that if funds are needed one will have the money at their disposal. In the event one needs to guard against smoke or dust, Wengie identified using a bra to cover your mouth, and to use the bra straps to connect to the back of your head to keep it secured. If a fire is needed when camping, locate a plastic bottle and add water to it. Direct the bottle with water at the object one wants to ignite. The rays of the sun will act as a heat source which will create a make shift fire within a few minutes.
If lost in the woods find a cup and add water to it. Next, use a needle and rub it against the fabric of your clothing in order to magnetize the needle. Take a leaf and place it into the water and place the needle on top of the leaf and the needle will point due north. If hungry and looking to hunt for your food, use a plastic bottle, sharp stick, and a balloon to create a spear like shooter. Simply cut off the front end of the bottle, place the balloon over top of the hole, and insert the stick inside of the balloon. Pull back on the stick and sling shot the spear through the air in hopes of hitting your targeted prey.
