Water is necessary for survival, but you don’t want to use more than you need. When camping in an RV, it’s important to stay hydrated and clean, while also conserving water. Here are ways to save water when camping:
Washing dishes is one of the most water-intensive parts of camping. To reduce the number of dishes you’re washing and the amount of water you’re using, plan one-pot meals. Cooking everything in one pot, and even eating from that pot, can significantly reduce the number of dishes you wash during your camping trip.
If you’re packing a cooler full of ice for your camping trip, this ice doesn’t have to go to waste when it melts. Recycle your melted ice and use it for things like washing your dishes, cleaning your face, or rinsing your feet.
A rainy day can put a damper on your camping trip, but there are some perks to rainfall. Put a bucket or small tub out in the rain and let it collect rainwater. You can use this water to rinse off later.
You want to stay clean during your camping trip, but you also don’t want to use more water than you need. When showering, make it quick. One way to do so is by using a shower timer. Not only can this help you use less water, but it can also help you free up the shower quicker so your friends or family members can bathe as well. Practicing proper bathroom etiquette during your camping trip has several benefits.
