Wyoming Magazine: 20 Best Camping Hacks

Emily Jewell of Wyoming Magazine gives 20 good camping tips. Our favorites

10. PREVENT RUSTING IN YOUR COOKWARE
Ever had rusting issues with your camping pots and pans? Try saving the silica packs that come in packaging. Those packs seem fairly useless, but they serve a purpose in packaging: to keep the moisture out. Why not use that to your advantage? By keeping those packs inside the cookware, you will be able to prevent any future rusting of those products. They fit right inside the pans, and the packs didn’t cost you any money. It’s a win-win situation.

13. KEEP ZIPPERS ZIPPING
Do the zippers on your tent or sleeping bag often stick? Candles serve more purposes than just as stubborn fire starters. Whether out camping or at home cleaning your gear, try taking an unlit, wax candle and rubbing it along the teeth. The result should be smoother sliding zippers with much less snagging.
