I discovered “Mini Tissue” the other day on a fellow backpackers blog and ordered a pack.
These things are kind of cool. We normally take a few wet-ones with us on a trip to augment our TP supply. The moisture in the wet-ones add a weight penalty that means we don’t take too many. One reader suggested drying them out prior to the trip and re-hydrating on the trail. Neat idea – but I’m too lazy.
Enter the “Mini Tissue”, these tiny compressed tissues expand when you add water into a very strong ‘shop-towel’ kind of material.
They weight about 10 tissues for 1.0 oz.
Here’s a video of me re-hydrating one in our kitchen sink.
