Altoids Tin Dental Kit

About: Paramedic. Hazmat. Fire. WMD. ON CALL FOR LIFE<3

I needed to think of something unique to make use of an altoids tin. Survival kits are great dont get me wrong, but how about those nights you "fall asleep at someone else's house". A pocket sized altoids tin with toothpaste, a toothbrush, floss and pain medicine might just save the morning . This is a 5 min project, minus me driving to the gas station to buy an altoids tin.

Youll need:
Altoids tin- I used a mini and everything fit perfect
Small sealable bag used in crafting
Floss or flossing device
Strong Wire cutter
Tylenol,NSAID..any OTC pain medicine

Thanks for looking at my instructable!

    Hadn't thought of this but thanks it's great espcially for children spending the nights with friends.

    I can totally use this for walker creek! Thanks

    Very handy; nice job! But you might want to add "toothbrush" to the list of things you'll need. :o)
