While 2020 has brought a lot of awful moments for everyone, here at Explore Washington State, we had the chance to create something amazing: our very own Kula Cloth. When we featured Kula Cloth last year, we never thought that we would have the opportunity to work with them this closely.
Our Kula Cloth may have sold out, but they have a wide selection of prints available.
What Is A Kula Cloth?
So, for those of you out there who don’t know what the magic of Kula Cloths are yet… get ready!
A Kula Cloth is a reusable antimicrobial pee cloth. It is a woman’s best friend when hiking, camping or using a public toilet without toilet paper. The design is sleek, and unassuming. With easy clips to attach to your backpack, it can dry as you hike.
Personally, I have two that I received last year from their team. I ended up giving one to my sister-in-law who is an avid outdoor adventurer, and I use mine on a regular basis. Gone are the days of having to carry around toilet paper with me and packing the trash back out with me.
How To Use
When you’re out in nature and need to go, it’s easy as conventional toilet paper, without the mess. Your hand stays clean, dry and protected while holding the design portion of the cloth. The black portion is what you use to wipe.
Once you’re finished you can simply wash it off with some water, and it’s good to go again. For longer trips that will go on for days, I do recommend to clean it with soap and water at the end of the day. When you’re back home, just throw it in your washing machine with some towels or sheets. (Tip: This is called a PEE cloth for a reason, not a bathroom cloth.)
Their cloths are made with non-toxic fabrics and eco-friendly materials that are manufactured and milled sustainably in the United States.
I love that Kula Cloths are discrete enough for any hiker, and with their range of artist designs, it is sure to get some compliments.
The Kula Cloth team often have Kula for a Cause cloths, where a portion of your purchase is donated to the coinciding organization. On their Instagram, they are often promoting online courses for various outdoors topics as well. They should be your new go-to source for belly laughs online, as well as helpful tips.
I could go on about the good that the Kula Cloth team is doing, from providing helpful information for ALL hikers, to helping those who are less fortunate still have access to their products, and just about the wonderful women that they are.
This year, I highly recommend a Kula Cloth for the woman in your life who loves to hike, and perhaps, has a Christmas stocking! Check out our 2020 Gift Guide for other great Washington gift ideas.
