Stick around for the giveaway at the bottom of this one, folks!
There’s nothing quite like the thrill of cooking a meal in the backcountry. Even the simplest of ingredients becomes a divine concoction when you’re hungry from hiking or paddling. You empty your bowl of macaroni and cheese, picking out the last noodle with your fingers, and then lean back on the soft earth with a deep sense of satisfaction. That is, until you take a look at all your dishes and remember these have to be done before you hit the hay.
Thanks to Lunatec, though, you’ve got a dishcloth that won’t still be wet when you pack it away in the morning (let alone half an hour before bed) and that’s tough on the food that remains stuck to the inside of your cooking pot. Thanks to the weave of the Scrubr® Dishcloth it also rinses free of debris, which means it doesn’t get smelly.
Seeing as it was winter up here in the Rockies (and I’m expecting a little bambino) I put this dishcloth to the test in my own kitchen, scrubbing pots and pans that carried more debris than you’d ever see in the backcountry. The Scrubr® did the job, rinsed off well and was dry within minutes. I’ll be sure to put it to the test on some camping this summer.
Lunatec also sent me their Trekr® Self-Cleaning Washcloth for review. Now this is something I wish I’d had during my 9 weeks in Nepal. Made from QuickDri nylon material, the Trekr® apparently never needs washing because it rinses clean every time you use it.
Again, I put it to the test in my bathroom, though the state of my skin would hardly compare to the sweat, grime and sunscreen I accumulate in the outdoors. Still, I was impressed by how it exfoliated, dried very quickly and felt clean enough to use again and again. One of my favourite items to bring on camping or hut-based trips is a washcloth so that I can clean off my face and neck before I go to bed. Having a quick-dry option like the Trekr® will be a definite bonus.
