I love that Campsuds Moment.
People often ask us how we are able to pull off camping *every* weekend. One component of that feat is the Post-Camp Reset (which I’ll cover in detail in a later post). During the Reset, gear is put away, cleaned and restocked, as necessary. Campsuds are a vital part of our kitchen gear. For a number of reasons, (again, another post), we don’t use paper plates or much disposable anything. This means KP, and KP means dish soap. Standard dish soap is a back-country no-no due to it’s lack of biodegradability so we use Campsuds.
We have a large refill bottle at home that we use to restock a small size Nalgene bottle that we keep in our kitchen kit. A little goes a long way so it doesn’t get refilled all that often, so refilling the Campsuds bottle is a funny little treat.
Weird, I know.
It’s not like I’m a huge fan of digging through (possibly spider-infested) shelves in the garage and pouring liquid from one vessel to another. However, when the little bottle is low, that means we have had a whole bunch of successful camping trips where meals were made and eaten with family and friends… and that is a milestone worth smiling over.
