Vaseline: A Multipurpose Prep Item

Vaseline is more than the goopy stuff you put on your baby’s behinds. It has uses ranging from homesteading to medicinal. Some of these unique uses for Vaseline can be found at Joey Green’s website [1], who seems to find wacky uses for just about everything.

Vaseline is a mixture of mineral oils, paraffin, and micro-crystalline waxes that, when blended together, creates a jelly-like feel.  Since it has a melting point just above body temperature, it re-solidifies, thus locking itself in place. Vaseline is a low cost, multi-purpose prep that should be in every prepper’s storage closet.




Note: DO NOT apply Vaseline to the insides of the nose due to the risk of lipoid pneumonia [2].
