You’re driving down the road, and what do you know, you’re phone is dead. The first hack that Wengie shows us is how to make a phone charger from a car charger, a 9 volt battery and a key. You simply touch the end of the charger and the key to the battery, tape them together, and plug your phone charger in! Wengie definitely suggest keeping a 9 volt battery in the car for emergencies like this!
Next, Wengie shows us how to make a water filter, in case you’re lost in the wild and need clean drinking water. For this hack you need two containers and a piece of cloth. Fill one container with the dirty water and set the empty container beside it. Wring the piece of cloth up and stick one end in the dirty water, with the other end in the clean container. The water will eventually soak through the cloth, filtering clean water into the container. She also shows us how to make a rain water catcher using a plastic 2 liter bottle.
Wengie then shows us a little trick to make sure you have spare change. She suggest popping off your phone case and stashing extra cash inside it. Then you always have extra money on you for emergencies. She also shows us how to make a dust mask out of a bra by wrapping the strap around your head and using the cup to cover your nose and mouth. This would prove very useful in the case of a fire.
She shows us how chips, such as Doritos can serve as great kindling for a fire in a pinch. In case you don’t have access to a lighter, she shows us how to use a water bottle, or plastic bag filled with water, to catch the suns reflection and start a fire.
She informs her viewers how to give themselves the Heimlich Maneuver in case they’re ever choking without someone else around.
She then shows how to make a compass from a leaf, cup and needle, and how to make a spear shooter from a plastic bottle, a balloon and a sharp stick. She then shows us that you can use a crayon like a candle and how to make a battery from folded aluminum foil.
Finally, Wengie shows us how to hold your keys between your fingers to use as weapon when walking alone.
