There’s great joy in staying out in the woods for days and days. We reset our internal clocks to the natural flow we evolved with, rather than the artificial time created by electric lights and glowing computer screens. But one potentially good, modern obsession is that of bathing. True, many Native American people and also Vikings were known to take pride in the cleanliness of their bodies. But many modern bushcrafters consider washing to be the thing they do when they return to civilization. Keeping clean in the woods is too difficult or uses chemical soap that shouldn’t be introduced into the environment (including so-called “camp soap”). However, there are some plants and mushrooms that provide natural and easy cleaning power.
