Toiletries Bag

The other thing for the list is a toiletry bag. This is a small bag (preferably waterproof) with:

  • toothpaste
  • toothbrush
  • a hairbrush or comb
  • possibly shampoo
  • soap (in a container)

and any other necessary items.

A towel is also advisable – large if shower or bathing facilities are available, otherwise a hand towel is usually big enough.

Please do not bring aerosol cans as the can can be knocked and will discharge the contents inside your bag or tent.

They also tend to trigger asthma attacks when used in confined spaces.

If you need to bring a mosquito repellent (or deodorant) a roll-on or stick type is much more convenient and takes less space.
