Q: How can my patrol keep our cooking gear clean?
A: You might not feel like doing it, but right after a meal, clean up.
Use a biodegradable, unscented soap in a three-pot washing process. Wash your gear in a pot of hot water with soap, and then rinse in another pot of clear, hot water. Finally, sanitize your stuff in a pot of cold water with a few drops of bleach. Remember to do all your washing and disposing of dishwater at least 200 feet from any water source — that’s 70 big steps.
