The Best Products for Staying Clean Onboard
PS searches for eco-friendly bathing options for salt and freshwater use.
Practical Sailor tested more than 20 phosphate-free body washes, shower gels, bar soaps, and body wipes to see what keeps us clean and green onboard, whether were washing our bodies in salt water or fresh water. We looked at ingredients, price, pH levels, lather qualities, ease of rinsing with limited water, and performance. Body washes such as Dr. Bronners, Campsuds, and All Terrain Wonder Wash suggested multi-uses including body washing, laundry and dish washing. Savon de Mer, Sea to Summit Trek and Travel, and Davis Aqua Lather promote body washing in both salt and fresh water. Testers liked both products from Avalon Organics, and liked the price point value of Whole Foods 365 Shower Gel.
