1) Disinfectant soap

The pandemic caused that everyone knows hand disinfection. In drugstores and pharmacies, you can buy small bottles of disinfectant gel that kill up to 99% of all bacteria, fungi and viruses. They are compact and fit into any backpack. You can use this soap before eating or after using the toilet and you will know that your hands are clean and disinfected.

2) Sanitary wipes

We recommend the use of cleansing and exfoliating wipes in nature. They will help you keep your body pleasantly fresh. Don't forget to clean them up. Either burn the wipes or take them with you.

3) Microfiber towel

There are two common problems with a towel. The first problem is easy. It's unwieldiness. A towel just gets in the way in your luggage. And if you manage to fit it into your backpack, then there is another and even more serious problem. It does not dry well after use. Therefore, do not hesitate to buy a microfiber towel. It is light, easy to store and, above all, it dries quickly.

4) Biodegradable soap

Use soap that is biodegradable. Anyway, the fact that it is degradable does not mean that you will use it in a water reservoir. If you don't want intrusive insects to be interested in you, use a soap that is not perfumed.

5) Dry shampoo

Greasy and dirty hair? If you use dry shampoo, then this is not a problem. Hair is cleansed and shine is restored. Again, we recommend a dry shampoo that is not perfumed.

6) Solar shower

Nowadays, it is not a problem to use a shower in the wild. Don't you believe? Check out the offer of solar showers on our website. It works on a simple principle. After filling the bag with water, just hang it in a place where there is good amount of sunlight. The bag absorbs solar energy and after 2-3 hours you can shower with warm water. This product allows you to treat yourself to a shower even though you are in the middle of the wilderness.


Where there's a will, there's a way. In today's era of special products, it is not a problem to maintain basic hygienic conditions even in places where there is no chance of getting hot water for several days. It's all up to you. Happy journey!
