Pristine and pure water sources from the backcountry should be protected. Outdoor folks are encouraged to use natural soaps, only sparingly around lakes, streams and rivers. No need to soap up in the creek and pollute the fragile ecosystem. Do wash and rinse several feet away, like 20 steps away from the waters edge. Wash dishes, your body, your hair away from the creek or lake. Tread LIghtly for mInimal impact on all Wilderness water sources. Biodegradable soaps are best for nature!
