Manly uses for Tampons

Website "The Art of Manliness" features 10 Survival Uses for Tampons, originally titled Yes, That’s a Tampon in My Mouth: The Swiss Army Survival Tampon — 10 Survival Uses

The site recommends men put out of mind the feminine uses that might them squeamish and think instead of a tampon as the "Tactical Adventure Medical Preparedness Outdoors Necessity". The tampon is actually regulated in the US by the Food & Drug Administration as a Class II Medical Device.
  1. Medical Bandage
    Tampons are sterile and ultra-absorbent making them the perfect first aid bandage for heavy bleeding.
  2. Crude Water Filter
    Won't work on chemicals or bacteria but can filter out grit and sediment from water
  3. Survival Drinking Straw
    Suck dirty water through a tampon if there's no other way to purify the water.
  4. Fire Tinder
  5. Tampon string can be used as a candle wick
    Make an emergency oil candle with rendered animal fat and string
  6. Use Tampon string directly
    It's not much of a string but could be used to make a deadfall trap or tie things together
  7. Use cotton as fletching for blow-dart
  8. Blow tube to heat up coals
  9. Waterproof case for matches
  10. Use packaging to make bobber for fishing line
Can you think of other survival uses for a tampon?
