Never camp without it! Can be found at most grocery stores, or pharmacies cheap! For poison ivy, oak & sumac, wash with this & it will cut the oils that cause reaction on your body & prevent it from spreading on other parts of your body. This stuff works great! Also great on ring around the collar, perspiration stains and spot treatments. Grated, it is good to use in homemade laundry soap (with baking soda, borax & washing soda)
Fantastic list of camping food ideas (both pack in & prepare there): bring tortillas & cheese for quesadillas: wrap in foil; To remember: Pancake mix in a jug (add water), banana desserts, sweet potatoes, veggie packets (carrots & butter! potatoes, onion & garlic!), quesadillas Consider getting a dutch oven for chili, veggies, and some of the other ideas here!
Without a doubt its SO much nicer to have a roll of toilet paper on your camping trip... But one of the inherent downfalls for a roll of toilet paper is it acts like a huge blotter absorbing the humidity from the air and making it almost useless. And too, that unexpected rain shower can turn that roll hanging on a stick to a blob of mush in short order. Coffee cans are wonderful for keeping your important papers dry and ready for use under any outdoors weather condition.
If you're camping...Rub petroleum jelly over a bunch of cotton balls...then store in ziplock bag..Then when your ready to make a fire pull a few cotton strands out then place under your wood then light your cotton ball..instant fire starter ----- Good to know for fire pits too! :)
