A week-long camping trip in the wilderness may sound like a great idea, but going multiple days without showering is not that appealing to most of us. Maintaining good camping hygiene is something that would be appreciated by those around you and, of course, you yourself will feel good when you remove dirt and grime off of you after a long hike. So, for your own and everyone’s sake, let’s break down a few ideas on how you can maintain personal hygiene while camping.

Firstly, you’d need to bring extra amount of water for doing undergarment laundry. At the very least, you should wash your underwear and socks. Ideally, your underwear should be able to wick moisture away from your body. One that is made of antimicrobial fabric that prevents the growth of microorganisms and smelly odors is a good option (pure cotton underwear soaks up sweat and stays wet against your skin all day). You can try a dry shampoo or baby powder to diminish the grease off your hair roots or baby wipes to clean your entire body (preferably biodegradable ones cause being mindful bout the environment is everyone’s duty).

If there is a lake or stream along your trail or near your campsite, you can take a bath in nature. Just rinsing off in freshwater will remove excess dirt and oils.

Still, if this is not your thing and you want to take a proper shower (something similar to what you would do at home), you can opt for a privacy tent toilet for showering. These offer some privacy which is much needed when you are showering at a camping area.

Instant pop-up privacy tent toilet is a popular choice as it’s easy to set – you just fold it out and it should be ready for use in less than a minute. Plus, it is light enough to be carried around. Quality ones are made of heavy-duty fabrics that are water and UV resistant. As for features, it sure comes handy to have a couple of windows you can zip open and several ropes and pegs to keep it anchored when it is particularly windy. Inside pockets will also help you keep your toiletries while taking a shower.

Apart from offering a private place for showering, an instant portable tent can make using the toilet, or changing a little more private while in the outdoors or at those crowded campsites.
