Gear Heads - Wet Wipes / Hand Sanitizer
I am not one to obsess about cleanliness, after all a little dirt makes you stronger. However, on a trek I pay a little more attention to personal hygiene. Often on a trek a water source is scarce or not reliable, so instead I will cleanse my hands with a hand sanitizer before eating or after using the outhouse. A dropper of bleach can do the trick as well as serve as a backup for purifying water. In addition, wet wipes can substitute, albeit poorly, for a shower.
