“WILD CAMPING

(Or  trying never to pay for a campsite)

For the uninitiated

How to deal with laundry

Wash underwear nightly or have 20 pairs of pants with you or go commando..

Wear black as it doesn’t look to stain when food is dropped down yr front.. Let said dropped food dry and pick it off “Look no stain

If eating or cooking wear sweater inside out “look no stain” then to go out wear sweater the right side out

Have a bottle of Fabreeze with you .. To spray the clothes you have just picked dropped dinner off ..

Shower or strip wash daily and use deodorant ..Febreeze clothes !!

Laundry Liq instead of loo blue

Use biological concentrated washing liquid from Lidl (FORMIL).. Two caps full is the equivalent to the loo blue but is €2.50 per Lt ….This bio liq also works in your grey water tank or even throw in a dishwasher tab .. Works fine in hot weather

Black towels dry faster !!

Loo cassette empty ?

We only need to empty the loo every 8/9 days as we have two .. One in and one one the bike rack
Looking after water..Get a jug to let cold water out before hot appears.. Put cold in kettle ..a splash and turn off .. Then soap and rince .. Uses less water than washing up

Water can be “borrowed” from church yards or cemeteries as there’s usually a tap for the flower water .. Happy days l

  1. Loved the washing tips! We use fabric softener instead of blu loo and it works really well plus it softens the water and stops that horrid limescale build up.
    We haven’t used this tip but someone suggested using a micro glove for drying yourself after shower. The glove drys quick.
    Carry on camping folks!
