How To Stay Fresh & Clean While RV Camping
After a long day adventuring in the outdoors, there’s no greater feeling than returning to your home away from home.
One of the great benefits of camping in an RV or a tow-behind trailer is that you can ease into your daily routines morning and night, no matter where you are, to stay clean and feel rejuvenated.
Here are a few tips to keep your smile bright while you’re on the road.
A Teeth Whitening Kit That’s Perfect for Traveling
A white smile with clean teeth is essential to feeling like your best self every day—no matter where you are.
Colgate has Oral Care Bundles that make it easy to bring your teeth whitening routine on the road. The Optic White Bundle includes Colgate’s Pro Series Whitening Toothpaste, sonic-powered Pro Series Toothbrush, and Overnight Teeth Whitening Pen that removes years’ worth of stains in just one week.
The Teeth Whitening Pen is enamel-safe and it is as small and compact as a tube of lip gloss. Apply the whitening pen to dry teeth to see noticeable results, up to two shades whiter, in a week.
Colgate also has an LED device for even better whitening results. The Colgate Optic White ComfortFit LED Teeth Whitening Kit is lightweight, easy to use, and powered by your smartphone.
It’s like getting a professional teeth-whitening treatment, except you’re not sitting in the dentist’s chair — you’re sitting in a camp chair beside a fire, underneath a starry sky.
Face and Body Cleansing Wipes
A pack of wipes is one of the most versatile, packable, easy-to-use travel hacks for staying clean when you’re camping.
Need to sanitize your hands before cooking a meal? Grab a cleansing wipe to disinfect your hands.
Woke up feeling a bit of grime on your face? Snag a wipe to clear the dirt away.
There are so many brands of wipes out there, but look for ones that are hypoallergenic and use natural ingredients, like The Honest Company Nourish + Cleanse Benefit Wipes. Or if you’re in a Trader Joe’s stocking up on snacks, grab a pack of their very reasonably priced Cucumber + Citrus Face and Body Wipes.
Soaps and Lotions for a Little Bit of Luxury
Eucalyptus eases sore muscles and joint pain after a long hike. Lavender helps with relaxation. Tea Tree is known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities. Essential oils don’t just smell good, they nourish our bodies and offer a little bit of spa-like therapy in a travel-sized package.
The EO Shower Gel Body Wash soothes and calms with lavender essential oils.
Another soap option is, of course, Dr. Bronner’s Organic Liquid Soap, the workhouse of all soaps for camping: the pure Castile soap is made with organic oils and certified fair trade. It’s also biodegradable, leaving no trace behind when used for showering, laundry, or the dishes.
Hair Care That Goes Beyond The Messy Bun
Those of us with long hair know the trials and tribulations of tangled knots when we’re camping, usually solved and forgotten about with a messy bun.
Yet another benefit to RV camping, though, is the ability to use low-wattage appliances, including hair dryers. A 1200-watt travel hair dryer isn’t as powerful as the one you have at your house, but it takes the dampness out of your hair.
Add to the travel hair dryer a leave-in conditioner that helps tame wet, tangly hair, like the SheaMoisture Daily Hydration Leave-In Treatment with 100% virgin coconut oil. Trader Joe’s Shea Butter & Coconut Oil Hair Serum is another great product that smooths frizzy, dry hair and gives it a bit of shine.
