The next step for your 72-Hour kit is personal hygiene items including toiletries, some sanitation items, bug spray and sunscreen. These items would be difficult to be without during a disaster. It’s important to keep them small and lightweight.
- I put our personal items in several plastic waterproof bags so we can find them quickly.
- Label on the bags with a list of the contents.
- An inexpensive idea for toiletries is to use the ones you get from a hotel.
- Adapt the list for the age and needs of each family member.
