I’d bet that most of us probably have at least one empty or almost empty plastic milk jug in our home right now. Here’s a great way to repurpose one or two of them during an emergency.
I’ve talked before about the importance of having an LED headlamp. Assuming you followed my advice, during a power outage when you need some hands free ambient light for a room, here’s what you do.
Fill the milk jug with water. It need not be your stored potable water either. Any water will do. Close up the milk jug.
Wrap the headstrap from the headlamp around the milk jug in such a way that the light faces inward.
Turn on the light and voila!
While it would be fine to just leave it sitting on a table or counter top, you could also hang it from a sturdy plant hook using rope or a bungee cord.
Pretty nifty, hey?
