Backcountry tips for staying fresh and clean off the grid

#4 BIODEGRADABLE SOAP

Choose liquid or bar soap that gets you clean, but doesn’t poison the environment. Soap labelled “biodegradable” does not mean you can use it in waterbodies. That’s never acceptable. Soapy water should generally be disposed of 200 feet from the shoreline, but check the package for specific guidelines. Also use soap that’s fragrance free so you don’t attract every insect in range.
