Personal hygiene may not seem to be something at the forefront of every mountaineer or traveller's mind, but perhaps it should be.
Normal products for keeping you, your food and your clothes clean are often not as user friendly in the field as they are at home, and in fact some can be seriously damaging. To enable you to keep clean and healthy, and also to be kind to your surroundings and pack weight at the same time we have collected together a number of useful items. So stay in this section of the catalogue for:
Basics first, soap! We have three different kinds from Life Venture. The versatile All Purpose Soap comes in a handy bottle and can be used for washing people, clothes and food. As the name suggests Fabric Soap is intended specifically for washing clothes and towels, but the star of the show is without doubt Life Venture Dry Wash. This can be used without water absolutely anywhere, and saves you the glacial melt water dip Chris is enjoying in the picture. It is absolutely perfect for washing sweat, dirt and general muck off your hands before lunch, and it'll evaporate away leaving you dry and clean.
Life Venture also provide us with travel clothes lines, sink plugs, and luxourious but light Trek Towels. A small range of foot hygiene products from Care Plus and lightweight pocket mirrors from Coghlans add to the collection. Gentleman adventurers seeking to plug their electric shavers into exotic sockets will benefit from the LifeSystems Worldwide Travel Adaptor, and ladies who spend long, bladder-straining periods in Expedition Down Suits, salopettes, caving suits, or kayaking dry suits will find the Shewee very helpful indeed. Combined with a Nalgene bottle, they also provide an ideal system to avoid leaving your warm, dry tent for a midnight wee.
Store all your hygienic joys in a Lowe Alpine or Life Venture wash bag for easy access too.
