Storing Messy Liquids

November 20, 20131

One thing I’ve learned about soap is that it always leaks out of the container. Probably more so when going through drastic elevation changes like my popup camper often does. An easy solution is to store all of these items inside a plastic container and place that container inside the sink pan.

Of course we travel with the container closed.

A container like this also allows you to move these smelly items to your vehicle to prevent a bear or other wild animal from trying to explore inside your popup camper! We use the Sterilite brand.

For other plastic container storage ideas, see the “Plastic Drawer Cart” post.

I've been camping regularly since I was a kid, from quick Cub/Boy Scout trips to week-long backpacking trips and everything else in-between. We got a popup camper when our kids were 1 and 3 years old to enjoy more time outdoors together alongside a few conveniences like heat and running water. Since then, we've spent over 75 nights together as a family in our popup camper. I've learned a lot about the intricacies of a popup tent camper during this time and love to share those lessons here for the benefit of others.
