Top Ten Fire Starters Infographic -

Ziplock bags 2 gallon: I use these for camping. I put one whole outfit in the bag and at the end of the day I put the stinky outfit in the bag and "zip" it up. Keeps the stink in! I wash these bags and reuse them. Pant hangers make an excellent drying "rack". I wash the bags inside out and then clip the bags and hang them to dry in my laundry room.

Three leaves let it BE!

Toothpaste Dots for camping. Lay out foil sheet or parchment and make rows of dollops of toothPASTE. Allow to dry for 2-4 days. Sprinkle baking soda on top to keep from sticking. Repackage in small bags. To use simple pop one dot in your mouth, chew, then add a small amount of water in your mouth and start brushing. This tip reduces weight in your pack.
