Coghlan's Biodegradable Camp Soap

rated 3 of 5 stars It's good that this product raises the conscientiousness of what we leave behind, but we might consider some inexpensive alternatives. I suspect some will find what I am about to say to be a little self-righteous, maybe contemptuous, but it is only meant to suggest a paradigm shift. I thought of making a review of the two products that I note below, but again, I suspect some would think such a review was just mockery.   So here goes. Have you considered the reason that you purchase Camp Soap may… Full review

Coghlan's Biodegradable Camp Soap

rated 4 of 5 stars It's a handy, portable, fairly effective soap. Easy to transport, not very messy, doesn't smell too bad and isn't too harsh. We got the chance to try this soap out on our annual coastal car-camping trip. First time, we approached it from a 'try and see' standpoint, figuring that if it works well, then we can stop lugging along actual dish soap, which would be an improvement in many ways. Short answer: We'll be taking it along again in the future. Long answer: This is a pretty reasonably performing… Full review

Dr. Bronner Eucalyptus Organic Bar Soap

rated 5 of 5 stars Let Dr. Bronner improve the way you stay clean with this Eucalyptus Pure-Castile Bar Soap. A soothing organic scent and an awesomely smooth lather. An all-in-one soap that has quickly become my favorite. I first read about Dr. Bronner’s on a hiking forum. It was mentioned only briefly so I decided to check out their website. I placed an order for a couple of bars of soap, shaving cream, and a bottle of liquid soap. I have been using Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Bar Soap for over 12 months now. Full review

Atsko Sport-Wash

rated 4.5 of 5 stars After using my tent and storing my tent in my bag and forgetting all about it—leaving it in my Forerunner for a week, while it was still wet—when I pulled it it out and saw how wet it still was, I could smell the mold. So I hand washed it with vinegar, which worked well and then I found some Sport Wash at the local True Value. After a good hand wash and some rinse, hanged it to dry on the clothesline. It came out just like new! Now I just did my 80 liter pack and it came out really well too. Full review

Sea to Summit Wilderness Wash

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Dirty face? Dirty Pots? Dirty clothes? “Backpacking-greasy” hair? A little bit goes a long way with this biodegradable wash. Works well and would do well for hiking or air travel. This is my first wilderness wash that I’ve ever owned, so I have no comparison other than that normal daily washes (i.e. dish soap, body wash, shampoo). At 3 fl. oz. it’s compact, about the size of a deck of cards, both in height, width, and depth. I do not have an electronic scale, so I can’t attest for its… Full review

Action Wipes Body Wipes

rated 5 of 5 stars Pre-moistened, all natural body wipes created specifically for when you don't have the time or facilities to bathe or shower. The proprietary wipe potion made with tea tree and eucalyptus, creates mild suds that don't require rinsing and are quick to dry — leaving your skin clean and refreshed, not sticky. These large (9"x10") body wipes are great for cleaning off dirt, sweat, odor, minor cuts, scrapes and help to remove poison oak and poison ivy oils too! Great for hiking, camping, backpacking,… Full review

Paper Shower Original Body Wipes

rated 5 of 5 stars A body wipe system that combines dry and wet towelettes. Big and wet enough for a complete body wash. Perfect for camping and hiking. Paper Shower is a unique body wipe system that combines a wet disposable washcloth with a dry towel. The washcloth is big and wet enough to enable you to wash your entire body and while the concept of the dry towel is a little strange it is great to completely dry yourself off and absorb any extra moisture. The cleansing solution in the washcloth is low in alcohol… Full review

Outdoor Rx Camp Soap

rated 5 of 5 stars Multi-purpose soap that works. So, how does one go about writing a review on soap? Well, when you consider that every piece of gear you toss into your pack needs to serve a purpose I guess it's as valid as anything. What I like most about the Outdoor Rx soap is the bang for the buck. Like that old Brylcream commercial that said, "A little dab will do you" this soap lasts a long time as it's concentrated so you only need a touch to get the suds working. It's obviously biodegradable to make stream… Full review

Dr. Bronner Tea Tree Liquid Soap

rated 5 of 5 stars I saw the other guy's review, and I thought I'd add my 2 cents. I love Dr. Bronner's.  I use it at home as well as the field when backpacking.  They also offer bar soaps that don't leak in your pack, but I prefer the liquid. I'm also a mechanic.  My hands get greasy.   Nasty greasy.   Dr. Bronner's Liquid Peppermint soap works the best of any product I've found, including stuff like GoJo that was made for removing automotive grease.  The other 'natural' product that works well is Ivory liquid,… Full review
