Choosing the right products to clean your camper

Camping is associated with freedom and being close to nature. The latter also means living and traveling in an environmentally conscious and resource-saving way. However, camping is not always as "green" as it could and should be. For example, when cleaning their camper, some people use cleaning agents that contain substances harmful to the environment. 

We are here to show you some alternatives. Even the tiniest changes to our routines can make a big step towards a sustainable future. Below, we'll show you how to get your camper squeaky clean without any harmful substances while producing less waste and saving money. These tips also work for your household. 

Homemade detergents to clean your camper

Especially during your camping trip, it can also be handy to have some homemade detergents on board. You can't clean everything with mild-acting and inexpensive alternatives, but it's worth a try before resorting to harsher cleaners. Below, we'll introduce you to two ingredients that can come in handy when cleaning your camper.
