Camp Hygene


There is nothing worse then having that lingering smell when you're out camping, only to realise that smell is you. Here are a couple of simple steps and items can make that camping experience a whole lot more enjoyable and stop you being a little on the nose.

Something as simple as a 10L or 20L Bucket with a plunger in the top can work great as a makeshift washing machine OR if you’re going to be driving, grab a 10L or 20L water tight bucket and put in your washing liquid and half fill the bucket with water. This will help wash your clothes while you drive.
