Staying clean and camping don't really mix. Everything you touch - your tent, firewood, the ground, the picnic table, the vault toilet door - is covered in dirt, grime, grit and unthinkable microscopic predators. Couple that with a complete lack of running water, and you're bound to be grungy for the better part of the trip.
If you're like me, you forget about it, take a wet-nap bath every now and again, and smoke the funky out of your clothes by standing over the fire.
But if you're a little more concerned with the overall smell and appearance you're putting out there, the Scrubba Wash Bag might be a wiser play. Hailing from the land down under, the Scrubba claims to be the "world's smallest washing machine." The 180-gram portable bag features a flexible washboard inside - pour some water in, mix in laundry detergent (or biodegradable cleaner when outdoors), toss a garment or two in it, press down and rub your clothes against the washboard. The sun's your dryer. I'm guessing it won't get out deep stains, but it sounds like a good option if you need to stay fresh. Scrubba.com
