    I wonder if shampoo can be freeze dried. I don't see why not. If I ever buy the Harvestright freeze-drier I plan on trying.

    What would be the benefit? An interesting experiment though.

    It would last essentially indefinitely. Eliminate the water content turning it into a power and then store in a vacuum packed container.

    Get cammi to try it, lol. I have a feeling that the glycol would prevent it from becoming a powder, I'm no chemist so.......

Also, toiletries last longer if you don't expose to water, as they are hygroscopic.
    When re-using plastic containers, look on the bottom for the little triangle mark. Don't re-use anything that doesn't have at least a number 3 inside the triangle and higher numbers are better. Has something to do with the porosity or, as another poster wrote, the "breakdown feature".

    I've used saltine crackers in my buckets for humidity control.. works fine,, still use them in my ziplocs with beans in em and yes gamma lids are worth it,, here In North Dakota I stacked some filled buckets out back in a hidden garden,, the lids that needed a wrench to open froze and cracked when we tried to pry them open, stick with gammas..

    For short term couple of months it works good but fitting them in certain places and trying to maximize square objects in a round bucket doesn't always work out.

    Use the gamma seal lids but not sure if they are really worth the extra cost. One thing I've noticed from going out west to back here in the east is humidity can build up within the bucket. Food is in individual bags and hasn't been a huge issue yet, but not what I was expecting.

    Gramma, how many times the fire went out there at the rock?

    Working out some transpo issues. Thinking of bringing folks some strange fire. Have to be careful so it doesn't get out of hand!
