How not to smell like a back­packer—no of­fense

How to smell clean even when you aren’t

If you’re plan­ning on go­ing backpacking after col­lege, please don’t take “pack light” that se­ri­ously and leave with just your tooth­brush. You don’t want to dis­cover mid-tran­sit that you’re start­ing to look scruffy and that your nails are long enough that you can open up a soda can with your pinky. Since you don’t want to bring the con­tents of your en­tire bath­room ei­ther, I’ll sug­gest a few dou­ble- or triple-duty items that aren’t heavy on the lug­gage. And if you end up not hav­ing ac­cess to run­ning wa­ter on your trav­els, they can serve as quick fixes (though do still try and take a shower!).
