How to camp like a pro.

I’ve put together a list of projects and ideas to help around the campsite, things that will make your camp-out easier. Lots here and I’ll be adding more goodies in future posts. Enjoy

1. Mildew remover spray:
                           Step 1: Mix 1/2 cup of Lysol in 1 gallon of hot water. Wash your tent with the solution (use a sponge) and let it air dry.
                            Step 2: Mix 1 cup salt and 1 cup concentrated lemon juice in 1 gallon of hot water. Wash again with this solution and let it air dry.

2. Starting a Fire:
     Don't have kindling? No problem. Always travel with a bag full of dryer lint! It's highly flammable and no chemicals needed!
     If you are starting a fire too cook with, there is another method. Save your cardboard egg containers and place a charcoal piece in each holder. Then when you light the cardboard it will burn slowly enough to catch the coals completely.
3. DIY Camp Kitchens:
     Here's a pretty comprehensive list. Check it out.
     Another idea is to buy a shower organizer for all your utensils.

    This one is the best! Old tic-tac containers to hold your spices and seasonings.

I'm sure there are a hundreds more as far as great camping tips go, but these are the ones that have served me best!
