TAKING CARE OF YOUR CAMPING GEAR AFTER USE

After an adventurous camping trip, the last thing that you have to do is unpack your gear. Taking care of your gear helps to make your next camping trip a lot easier.

Here are some tips on how to take care of your gear after use.

CLEAN YOUR CAMPING GEAR

It’s not enough to just fully dry your gear. You have to clean them first before storing. Wash what can be washed before you hang it out to dry. Clean other items as required before preparing to put the items away.

DRY YOUR CAMPING GEAR

Some camping gear are not yet completely dry once you get home. Hang out your camping gear that is damp, such as tents and sleeping bags, in sun so they can dry completely before you pack them away again.

RESTOCK

Restock all your camping items as much as possible when you’re unpacking. Doing it later can make you forget to restock your gear, and you don’t want to miss something on your next camping trip. The best way is to create a list.

FIX WHAT IS BROKEN

If anything was broken while on your trip, make sure to fix it when you get home. It could be tent zippers, broken pole or broken appliance but remember to fix them before you forget. This will prevent you from rushing to get some spare parts to fix the broken parts before your next trip.

STORE PROPERLY

Finally, store your camping gears the right way. Storing camping gear properly per item will ensure a longer life.

Clean and store your camping gear the right way after use to preserve them for your next camping trip.
