Car Trunk First Aid Kit ~ Road Trip Ready ~ Noreen’s Kitchen


Hi everyone, welcome back to my kitchen today We are going to concentrate on a new series that I’m going to be touching upon called roadtrip ready you may know that Rick and I just recently took a Road trip to visit his parents in Indiana and we drove from Eastern, North Carolina To northern Indiana and it took us about a week to go visit and come back We did not have this first aid kit in our car at the time and shame on us But we’re gonna remedy that I’m going to show you how we construct this first aid kit using recommendations from the Red Cross and recommendations just from you Rick and myself because I think it’s always a good idea to Remind people how to do this. So let’s go see how this first aid kit for your car all comes together Alright so I’m gonna go over all of the items that we chose to put in our first aid kit and we’re gonna be keeping This in the trunk of our car and it’s our family car We also have a truck but the trunk of the car is probably where this is going to live now I will start out by saying we purchased all of these items new today We went to Walmart and we bought all these things except for a couple that I already had on hand Which being 95 facemasks as well as these instant cold packs that I’ve had for a long time in my first-aid storage so those are things that you can you can add to or take away from and also I Already have the rubber gloves on hand So those are just things we had we’re gonna toss in here and you may add to or take away from depending on your needs For your particular family or your particular situation? one other thing that I wanted to say too is the first aid kit isn’t always just going to be for you if you encounter an accident on the road if you come upon a situation where someone requires help and You’re waiting for First responders to show up. It’s always a great idea to have something like this on hand to be able to help where you can Always make sure that you have the knowledge to do that So don’t let go moving someone who apparently has a neck injury because you may injure them further And if you don’t have them have the knowledge and the know-how to use these things, maybe somebody else on the scene does right, but don’t leave them make sure that you are there to help them comfort them and Tend to them in the event that you don’t have the experience but you can still provide moral support and Comfort because we’re all in this together and if we don’t help each other then why are we really here? Like it’s true. Absolutely the first thing we went looking for was a container to put our first-aid kit in now again, Depending on what you’re gonna put in yours will depend on the size that you need I am one who decides that it’s always better to have one That’s a little bit larger than you might need because you never know what you might be adding to the box So we got one of these it was six dollars It has a handle on the top it’s easy to grab and pull out of your trunk and use when you need to this is important to Rick and also I thought a tarp or a Lightweight shower curtain, this is very inexpensive These are about three dollars if you have to pull over on the side of the road and change a tire or you’re having some problems and you need to get under your vehicle or You need ground cover for some reason if you need to help someone who needs to lay flat on their back This is a great thing to have on hand Right you can use this as a poncho Exactly. So that’s gonna go right in the bottom of my kit the next thing we have our Disposable gloves. I have twelve pair here and I’ll show you how I prep them there’s six pair in each of these sandwich bags and I’m just gonna stick those in the box, but I wanted to show you how I prepared these I Laid these flat in pairs The best that I could one on top of the other and then I kind of folded them down in half with the fingers Down and then the thumb in and then I rolled it like this it kind of pulls all the air out of the inside and then I just put it inside the sandwich bag and then when the sandwich bag was full I Pressed all the air out of it nice shielding this way when you reach into the bag you’re pulling out a pair of gloves Instead of fumbling through you know, if you just shoved 12 gloves in there They’re all gonna tangle up together this way you just reach in and you have a pair of gloves Next thing I have is some wet ones You can easily put in some baby wipes if you’d like a packet of baby wipes Which is larger and we always keep those in the car. Anyway, when we travel so this is just a little extra backup These are actually antibacterial. So in the Box they go Kleenex again. This is something we keep in our glove box I have them in my purse These are just an extra backup because you never know when you’re gonna need them Then I think we’ll go over the the wound care now. Walmart has made it very easy This box was five dollars and nine eight cents and it has everything you need for two-by-twos eight four by fours four rolls of gauze and one roll of paper tape It also has four two by three nonstick pads and four three by four Nonstick pads in the box that goes I have some n95 face masks. And so this is safe for biohazard So this is good if your if you come in contact with somebody who’s sick, and you don’t want to get sick This will protect you we have some tools here and we will put those I’m going to put those tools in a little plastic box just to keep them separated I have the Red Cross list recommends an Oral thermometer that is not glass and not mercury tweezers are important to have your first aid kit Clippers no, not just for toenails Okay, and this this little kit was the Clippers two tweezers this emery board and this orange stick they all came in one package for ninety seven cents, and I’m gonna go ahead and put this in here as well because you never You might have to start a fire so You never know what in what situation you’re going to encounter. So just keep that in mind That’s right, you just never know so it’s better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it this is a Zinc oxide based sunscreen which is what is being recommended because it’s not full of chemicals This is a baby sunscreen, which is good for everyone. If you get sunburn for some reason the aloe vera gel you could obviously Well, that’s a good idea I didn’t even think about that and Molly wants me to let you guys know if you can find aloe vera gel without the green color that’s probably your best bet because it’s pure aloe vera I Got this because it was inexpensive and this is going to live in the trunk of my car. I Got a bottle of 91% alcohol. This is good for Sterilizing your hands those plastic gloves are not sanitary gloves. They’re just plastic gloves so when you put those on if you need to treat someone you’re gonna want to rinse your Gloved hands with this and that will sanitize them. We also got this awesome little spray bottle with hydrogen peroxide in it This is awesome If you have to tend to a scrape a cut or a wound, we also pick this up But then I’m going to show you something else. This is a like a Deepwoods insect repellent Which is a great thing to have on hand But honestly I prefer this homemade version This is made with all natural essential oils and witch hazel if you would like to see a video on how to make this Molly and I will be so happy to do that for you leave a comment down below and we will Fix up a video on how to make this awesome Homemade essential oil all natural insect repellent that really worked and then I have a couple of ice packs These are instant cold packs. These are the kind that you you kind of snap and then they get instantly cold I have had these in my First-aid storage for a very long time. They’re still good. I’m gonna keep those right in there We have a flashlight. Make sure you have fresh batteries Check this every six months or so and as far as the dates on all of these products all of the medicines that we bought which are over-the-counter are all dated for the Year, 20 or 21? We know that they’re good for about a year and you’re gonna want to go in there and make sure that you take care of Them maybe go in in six months switch them out and make sure you use them if you you can Incorporate those into your your home supply and that way they won’t go to waste We also did get some q-tips cotton swabs. Those are great for applying topical ointments Do not clean your ears out with these that is a big no-no and then we got some triple antibiotic cream This is like neosporin everything you see here I got for like eighty-eight cents or just over a dollar Because I’m putting it in my car and I’m probably not going to use a whole lot of it If any that’s the being honest, it’s being prepared. You want to make sure you have it so Absolutely, and then have some hydrocortisone cream. This is an anti-aging We have some allergy relief this is like a benadryl you can use this in combination with the hydrocortisone cream again if you come in contact with bug bites poison oak poison ivy gonna help reduce the itching or it’s going to help reduce your your sinus distress and this is a Generic version of zyrtec then we have some gold bond powder because you know itchy parts of your body these also If you have gloves that are a little too small or you’re sweaty and you can’t get your hands in the gloves you can dust Your gloves on the inside with this and make putting them on a little easier these are anti diarrheal or imodium capsules and those are important because when you’re traveling Some people are super sensitive to the changes in the water and what-have-you antacid tablets You just never know when you’re gonna need these a little bit of hand sanitizer, even though we do keep it in the car It’s always good to have it a little bit extra on hand. So we’re going to just kind of Nestle that in there. We have a variety of different over-the-counter medications three different pain relievers I have an aspirin and ibuprofen and an acetaminophen So we’ve got like Bayer motrin and Tylenol. Those are all going in there And then we’ve got stomach relief. So we’ve got like a generic Pepto-bismol capsule and we have a generic gas sex capsule and now all you have to do is Clamp the lid on and your first-aid kit is ready to go in your car and Whoops, don’t forget your scissors Put those right on top.
