H is for Hygiene

Proper hygiene is important to good health but how do you stay clean while car camping?

Well, I have a few suggestions:
  • Swimming – if regular swimming is included in your plans, you’ll be clean by default!
  • Baby wipes – or moist towelettes or whatever you call them, prepackaged wipes are a car camper’s best friend
  • Hand sanitizer – especially good after porta potty or pit toilet use (we used Purell)
  • Portable camp shower – the Cadillac of car camping cleanliness but not doable for everyone or every trip
You can also clean up in a public restroom or pay for a shower at many campgrounds and truck stops – I just didn’t include those options as suggestions because it’s not what we do. I prefer baby wipes for routine cleanliness and try to plan a motel/hotel stay every 3-4 days. Joel’s trying to stretch out the time between paid lodging so is thinking of ways to heat water while we’re driving that we can use for showering when we stop each night. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with!
