6 Essentials to Pack With Your Camping Gear
Camping doesn't have to be in tents!
Stock up on bug repellent and grab your sleeping bags because you're headed for the camping trip of a lifetime. Whether you're kickin' it back by the fire pit or finding local trails for your next hiking adventure, spending time in outdoors is great for getting away from modern society. While it's important to minimize your travel packing list, there are some products you can't go without. From itch creams to nasal sprays, check out these top-rated essentials that will improve your getaway.
Sleeping under the stars is a magical experience. But after a day of hauling around heavy camping equipment, the humming on your lower-back can leave you restless at night. Looking for relief for your achy-breaky back? Soothe the pain with an Icy Hot patch. Simply place the medicated pads onto the area you are experiencing pain and let it work its magic. The best-selling patches contain menthol and methyl salicylate, popular ingredients in pain-relieving ointments, which induce cold and warm sensations that distract the unwanted aches.
Bad news, allergy sufferers. If you’re heading to the wilderness for a hike your drippy, sneezy nose will likely get much worse thanks to all the outdoor allergens. Rather than miss out on the fun, pack a bottle of Nasacort along with your everyday essentials. The allergy spray will keep your nose in check while easing the nasal congestion. Trust us, plowing through several boxes of Kleenex will be a thing of the past.
Stopping heartburn is no mean feat when you’re chowing down high-fat camp meals. That's why stocking up on Rolaids is non-negotiable. Folks who are prone to experiencing the burn creeping up in their chest often turn to over-the-counter medications that help neutralize stomach acid. Best of all you, if you dislike the flavor of chalky antacids, Rolaids has blessed up with a "Starburst" like version that tastes a lot better.
Pollen is at an all-time high and it’s absolutely everywhere. The camping grounds are no exception. Don't let the clouds of yellow dust stop you from enjoying the great outdoors. If you’re an allergy sufferer keep a bottle of Allegra handy to get relief before your symptoms start.
Whether you're a magnet to winged bloodsuckers or come into contact with poison ivy, you understand how unbearable the itch can be. Keep the scratching at bay with Gold Bond Intensive Healing Anti Itch Cream. Apply the ointment on your inflamed skin and save yourself the discomfort.
While enjoying your spontaneous trip in the outdoors it is important to continue your regular at-home oral hygiene. Trust us, nothing is worse than having a fellow camper take a whiff of your morning dragon breath. Avoid any awkward encounter by keeping a bottle of ACT mouthwash along with your other toiletries. The oral rinse not only gets rid of the funk and gunk, it is also clinically proven to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay
