Happy Campers

What is itchy and bug bitten and smells like dirty socks? Your family, after a few days in the woods. Combat the funk with a new, nontoxic Organic Outdoor Kit from Middlebury-based Vermont Soap Organics. The biodegradable liquid Camping Soap allows you to get an outdoor shower without worrying about what your soap might do to the ecosystem. A citronella Camping Spray helps keep the bugs at bay. And the Plant Itch Relief uses organic aloe vera, jewelweed, oats and rosemary to stop the scratching.

Organic Outdoor Kit: Vermont Soap Organics Camping Soap, $3.99, Camping Spray, $8.75, Plant Itch Relief, $4.99. Available online at vermontsoap.com/campsoap.shtml.
