Tip #51 Keeping Your Camp Toilet Paper Fresh and DRY!
This one was right in front of me and I failed to remember it for the Outdoor Tips. So THANKS to Paul Rose of Festus, Missouri for sending in this most important tip.
Without a doubt its SOOOO much nicer to have a roll of toilet paper on your camping trip than use what Nature provides. But one of the inherent downfalls for a roll of toilet paper is it acts like a huge blotter absorbing the humidity from the air and making it almost useless. And too, that unexpected rain shower can turn that roll hanging on a stick to a blob of mush in short order.
Coffee cans are wonderful for keeping your important papers dry and ready for use under any outdoors weather condition. And they come in two flavors, European Roast and Gourmet Supreme.....er, I mean metal cans and plastic cans. The nice thing about the plastic Folgers can is the built-in handle for easy carrying. This makes it great for taking to the campground outhouse for your "personal, custom" tissue or out in the woods. Use it and place it back in its protective carrier so it stays clean while you finish up your chores.
BTW, I just have to say it, the BEST TP out there has got to be Charmin Ultra! I'll never buy anything else.
