Backpacking Gear for Beginners: Soap

This post is part of the Backpacking Gear for Beginners course.

Why do you need soap?

Soap is optional on the trail but it’s nice to have. You might want to wash your body on the trail or some pots and pans from a meal. 

Friendly to the environment

Make sure the soap you get is friendly to the environment, not just the Dawn you got from the kitchen. Campsuds have been my favourite for a long time but there are others out there. Look for biodegradable on the label.
