Hygiene products you will need to combat unpleasant body odors after SHTF
04/03/2024 // HRS Editors // Views

After a natural disaster or an economic collapse, the level of hygiene in first world countries like the U.S. will eventually plunge for three reasons: There will be limited or no access to tap water, there will be no sewage treatment plants and there will be no garbage collection.

Without tap water, many people, especially non-preppers, will struggle to keep their homes and themselves clean. Aside from lacking the water to shower, some people may also be unable to wash their clothes. (h/t to UrbanSurvivalSite.com)

And without sewage treatment plants, sewers could leak or overflow into the surrounding bodies of water like ponds and lakes, along with pipelines.

Lastly, without garbage collection, trash will pile up in your neighborhood and the surrounding areas. People may throw their garbage in their front or backyards, which will cause insect and rodent populations to grow exponentially.

When that happens, the area could suffer deadly diseases like the plague.

Additionally, the stress of living through a major, long-term emergency may weaken your immune system. With all these factors combined, it is crucial that you protect yourself and your family with proper personal hygiene.

Supplies you will need to maintain proper hygiene after SHTF

Here are some personal hygiene items that you should stock up on before disaster strikes:

Antibacterial soap

Bar soap is cheap, but you can make your water supply last longer after SHTF if you also get liquid hand soap since it doesn’t require you to use as much water.

Antibacterial wipes

Antibacterial wipes are a must-have, especially if you have to wash your hands without using any water.

Baking soda

Did you know that baking soda isn't just for baking food?

You can use baking soda to make shampoo by adding one part baking soda to three parts water. To make baking soda toothpaste, add two parts baking soda to one part water.

Baking soda can also be used to clean and deodorize things around your house.

Bleach (unscented bleach)

Buy regular unscented bleach because it has a longer shelf life. This kind of bleach can be used for cleaning and purifying water.


Borax is a versatile item and it can be used to naturally clean dishes, drains, refrigerators, toilets, tubs and other things around your home.

Dental floss

After an emergency, you may have trouble consulting a dentist. And if you can't afford a dentist, it's important to maintain proper oral health because taking good care of your teeth and gums can help prevent a bad toothache.

Brush your teeth regularly, then floss to keep your teeth clean and your breath fresh.


Deodorant can help you prevent body odor even after SHTF.

However, it's best to avoid commercial deodorants because they usually contain different chemicals that may have negative side effects. For best results, try a deodorant made with natural, gentle ingredients like colloidal silver, baking soda and magnesium.
