Newbie Question

Post by prepper51 »

Hi - I'm new to prepping and am wondering how to keep water in a car kit over the winter. I know plastic bottles freeze and bulge.

Ice cubes in a zip lock work great. Take what you need aND melt as required.

Open the bottles and squeeze out the air. Reseal the lids and whamm you're good to go. I've never had a bottle burst or swell.

Crap. Um, do a double boiler style setup with cans and a candle to thaw out a bottle very quickly.

Or you can fill the bottle half way to keep it from bursting. But otherwise, there's no way to keep it from freezing.

I have also done as WestShield has said. I have left containers half filled over night outside in winter with the lid off to allow for expansion when freezing.

I just put them in zip lock bags and into the trunk.

Listen to Ghost Prepper about heating up the water. Sucking on ice of any kind lowers your core temp.
