100 Word Zombie Tips #16 "How to Make Sandbags"

Barricades made of debris and plywood should keep out zombies, but they will provide little or no bullet resistance. Dangerous survivors, desperate looters, even stray bullets may go right through your defenses and injure someone in your group. The solution? Homemade sand bags.

  1. Gather pillow cases, garbage bags, or shirts tied off at the neck and arms.
  2. Fill them with dirt, sand, flower, sugar, cornstarch, potting soil from indoor plants. Anything that behaves like sand will work like sand.
  3. Tie off the open ends, and stack them as needed to provide an interior bunker, fall back location, or makeshift wall.

  1. Sand bags work because sand is heavy. A five pound bag of flour won't stop a .22, sand in that same size bag will. You'd be better off eating the flour, corn starch and sugar and boxing up your books, magazines etc for impromptu bullet stops. Flat side out not edge on.
