How to purify and store water:

Purifying Water

The easiest way to purify water is to boil it, provided you have a pot, plus a fire or a camp stove. Bring water in a pot over a high heat until you have rolling bubbles, and let them roll for at least five minutes. Then let it cool down before drinking, or you'll badly burn your lips and tongue.

Storing Water

Store your water by simply putting your water inside any container you have. If you don’t have a container you can use big leaves.
Step 1: Cut them into six-inch squares
Step 2: Roll each into a cone
Step 3: Fold and hold the end of your cone so water won’t escape
