Although a gas mask is a great thing to include in your preparedness supplies, it’s usually not a top priority for most preppers. There are only a few specific scenarios where you would need one, each of which isn’t very likely. Still, I think we should be prepared for as many scenarios as possible. But if for some reason you don’t have access to a gas mask when you need one, there’s a way to make your own from a few household items.
In this video, Black Scout Survival explains how to make a gas mask with a two-liter bottle, a soda can, some rubber bands, cotton rounds, duct tape, medical tape, and activated charcoal. You might be thinking it would be easier to just buy a cheap gas mask, but if you’re with a group of people who all need gas masks, you may have to improvise. That’s why I think this is a skill worth learning.
