The Beast’s Tip of The Week – Sphagnum Moss
You’re on a walk or even wild camping and suddenly, there’s the call of the wild. You really need to, ahem, you know. GO. And not the easy one, you get the idea? If you don’t, then we’re not going to any more details except to state that if you need a crap in the wilds without paper, what can you do?
Sphagnum Moss contains antiseptic compounds, and is remarkably soft and effective in what we’re suggesting you do with it. It’s usually damp as well, so it’s doubly effective.
Of course, you do have to consider the environment if you’re doing this and observe any local laws about taking all human waste out with you.
Here’s a picture of some Sphagnum moss, though for obvious reasons, the images for this tip of the week will not include a step by step guide. You should be able to work that one out yourselves.
