This video was inspired by a reader tip that ran in the magazine a few years ago (see below). It’s a simple project that’ll protect your TP from the elements, and mice, while camping, and you probably have all the supplies you need for it lying around the house.

Reader Tip: Protect Your TP at Camp Two of the most annoying problems at my hunting camp are: wet toilet paper and mice getting into toilet paper. But there’s a solution. Cut a long slit in one side of an empty plastic coffee can. Stick a roll of TP in the can and pull a bit of the paper through the slit. Make a hole in the lid and the bottom. Run string through the holes and hang the can out of reach of mice. —Mark A. Clark, Colorado Springs, Colo.
