9. Use Tampons to Bandage a Wound
The sterile nature of tampons makes them a perfect bandage or wound dressing in an emergency. You can even unravel them to make a larger bandage if necessary. To secure the tampon bandage in place use smaller bandages, gauze, or even tape.
10. Use Tampons to Filter Water
You can use a tampon to filter a bottle of dirty water in an emergency. And while a tampon won’t keep all of the contaminants out, it will keep out some of the bigger particles. Just make sure to boil the water before you drink it, and you should be good to go.
