21 Camping Hacks That Will Make Splendour In The Grass So Much Better
Don't let wet socks fuck up your weekend, fam.
Fly a flag or helium balloon at your campsite to make it super easy to find from a distance.
Pack your food in a cardboard box, which can later be used as your campsite's garbage bin.
Print off the music timetable before you leave to save phone battery.
Put glow sticks in a water bottle to give your camping spot a ~magical~ vibe.
Strap a head torch to a big bottle of water, and make a light that will brighten your whole tent.
Keep your earplugs in your pillowcase when you're not using them, so they're easy to find when you crawl back into bed.
If you can't lock up your valuables overnight, keep them in the bottom of your sleeping bag.
Cover the lid of your shampoo, conditioner, and body wash bottles with a layer of plastic wrap before putting the lid on to avoid leaks.
Wear a beanie to bed on extra cold nights to avoiding losing precious body heat through your head.
Add frozen bottles of water to your esky rather than ice. They'll keep it cold and when they eventually melt, you'll have fresh, cold water.
If it rains, place your phone inside a ziplock bag before sliding it into your pocket.
Pack some spare shower caps. If it gets muddy, you can place your dirty shoes in them before you pack them back in your bag.
Don't leave the house without jumper leads. If you're charging your phone in your car for several days, there's a good chance your battery might die.
Take your own toiletries. Sharing soap, toothpaste, or shampoo can be a pain when you split with your other half in the shower line.
Put your toiletries into a bag that can be hung on the back of the door. That way, you can avoid having to place it on the wet gross ground.
Place a foam mat outside your door to keep it from turning into a gross puddle.
Pack duct tape, just in case your tent gets a hole in it.
And take some pegs to hang up damp clothes when the sun finally comes out.
Try your best to hang your towel in the sun after every use.
Take twice as many socks as you think you'll need.
And, well, accept that no matter what you do, things are bound to get a little messy.
