5. Create a Water Filter
Creating a water filter is the best thing you can do to get clean water. Ultimately, you need to do this as even bringing water up to a boil in a fire won’t completely rid you of bad stuff in the water. Therefore, it is good to filter it too. This can be done pretty easily. The first thing you need is an empty bottle or container. One can be made with things like birch bark too, up to you!
Poke small holes in the bottom of it, now you’ll want to find coarse gravel, coarse sand, crushed up charcoal, and fine sand. Then fill up the container about an inch or two. Then add water to the top layer of fine sand. It should filter the water completely by the end of the water’s journey through. We’d recommend still boiling it for extra security.
