Re: Re: A lighter alternative...
Hand washing with a "reservoir" still creates unnecessary polluted water that is bad for the plants and animals along the trail. You can use a little hand sanitizer to kill the germs--th...

A lighter alternative...
is to not wash on the trail! Washing in the backcountry just creates polluted water. No one cares how smell you are on a backpacking trip. I've gone 14 days between showers on the trail and ...
