So you are out in the woods for the weekend, and you start to smell. Your tent mates say you have to sleep out in the cold alone because your musk is unbearable. But fear not! We have you covered.

  • What you need: A 5-gallon water can, watering can nozzle (we used a Fiskers nozzle from a local hardware store), and a ¾ inch female threaded connector for a hose. SHOP NOW
  • How you build: First, connect the watering can nozzle to the 5-gallon water can. Second, tie some paracord around the can handle and base. Third, hang the can from a tree branch the way a purse hangs from an arm.
  • What you do: Stand under it. Soap up. You know how to bathe.

With this Tac Hack, you won’t smell like sweat and woods and the person(s) you’re sharing your tent with will accept you back into the warm protected slumber spot. Then, when you wake up all well rested, you can do your dishes or some laundry under the makeshift shower—depending on how ambitious you’re feeling.

You’re Welcome!
