How do you maintain hygiene while camping?
Bring a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss as well as the above materials, but avoid deodorant, perfume, hairspray, shampoo, and any other scented and environmentally-unfriendly materials. Also remember to avoid brushing teeth and bathing within 200 feet of a water source or your campsite.
How do I keep my kids clean while camping?
Wipes are great to clean hands and feet before they crawl into sleeping bags too. Always set out a blanket or towel in front of camping tent doors so you can sit down and wipe feet, hands, faces, arms and legs without tracking in dirt into the tent (as well as your foot bath.)

What should you not keep in a tent?
Keep all your supplies, including toothpaste and deodorant, away from your tent because anything with a smell can attract bears [source: NPS]. Don’t sleep in clothes you have eaten in or cooked with. Hang these clothes in plastic bags away from your tent together with the other supplies [source: Sanders].
Can you clean a tent with vinegar?
Prepare five quarts of hot water and add a quart of vinegar and half a teaspoon of dish soap. Use this mixture to gently rub down all affected parts of the tent. If there is a particularly tough stain, use a brush with soft bristles to scrub it out.
Can I put a tent in the washing machine?
You shouldn’t put your tent in the washing machine because washing machines are too harsh on the tent. Doing so could damage the tent’s seams, mesh, and coating. A washing machine will most likely damage your tent because the wash cycles are too severe for the tent to handle.
How do you keep a tent floor clean?
To help keep your tent floor free of debris and mud, place a small throw rug between your sleeping arrangements. This can help limit the amount of mud you might track in and make cleanup much easier when it’s time to pack up.
