Survival accessories


If you live in any big city (NYC for me) then you've probably thought about putting together an emergency kit. This has been on my to-do list for about 4 years (since 9/11) and more recent reminders have been Hurricane Katrina and the ever-looming Avian bird flu. So have I stockpiled on bottled water, canned goods, batteries and candles yet? Umm, no (but I'm still working on it, I swear!). Or maybe I'll just go with this Survival Kit in a Sardine Can. Sure, it's more of a gag gift, but it actually has some useful items like matches, whistle, compass...even duct tape, though I have no idea how that fits in a 4 x 3 inch can. Hey, is that a Tootsie Roll in there?


Okay, so the Gal Pal Garmet Deodorant Removers aren't really survival necessities, but if you've ever put on a shirt to find unslightly deodorant marks, it might prove to be very useful. Just take the pad and wipe with the grain of fabric. Chalky marks be gone!

Both are available at The Container Store

I used to always have Gal Pals on hand... especially during my pseuso-beatnik, avante garde phase in early college (lots of black clothing). Then, finding myself in the middle of a deodorant crisis without them, I tried my Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It worked just as well, plus they're cheaper and easier to find. Besides, a Gal Pal can't get the dinginess off my bath tub like the Magic Eraser.

While working retail back in college we would have this problem with clothing that people tried on and put back on the racks. With the extra bonus of their armpit skid-marks. No one would buy the clothing with the marks so we learned that if you rub the marked spot with the same fabric from the same garment the marks would go away!
Well, worked at least 99% of the time and didn't cost anything.

I use a nylon stocking balled up. i have a pair that is blue which I haven't worn in ages and that does the trick.
