5. Smelling Salts

Should you ever be in a situation where someone has fainted, but no smelling salts are available (and they rarely are), a handy bottle of nail polish may just do the trick! Simply open the nail polish bottle and place it under the person’s nose and the fumes should wake them up just the same as the ammonia would in smelling salts. Keep in mind this won’t work for every single person, but it’s had a high success rate and is usually more readily available than those little capsules!
