Before setting off on your next camping holiday, holidaymakers can use some handy hints to ensure a problem free trip.
According to British company HomeServe’s top tips, keeping food and drink cool for short camping trips of two to three days is as easy as freezing a large water bottle to pack your food and drink around.
To keep bottles and cans cold, a damp sock makes for temporary insulation to place your bottle or can inside, then store in the shade.
Camping with food can attract insects, so keep food in sealed containers a short distance away from your tent, while avoiding eating too close to the tent to avoid any crumbs dropped on the grass that will attract unwanted insects and bugs.
A good natural deterrent to avoid ant invasions is Cinnamon, so try sprinkling a line of cinnamon across the entrance to your tent.
To ensure you have packed well for your trip and saved space, roll your clothes as opposed to being folded and avoid bulky pillows by using a pillowcase to transport some of your clothes before stuffing them inside to use as a pillow at night.
Last of all, most people pack toiletries in a section separate to their clothes; however it is still a good idea to put any items likely to leak into a plastic carrier bag.
