In a survival situation, unless you are thoroughly prepared and let's face it, we all will overlook something, being able to adapt and improvise is a must to ensure your well-being.
One mistake survivalists often overlook is their ability to get critical parts for various projects, using equipment and materials already in use or readily available at places like your local dump.
Hot water is one such element to survival, particularly in a man made or natural disaster.
A small container of hot water allows you to clean yourself (and your cooking utensils) more thoroughly and adds a degree of comfort to a survival situation that is vital in maintaining morale.
