How to Pack a Camping Stove
Camping stoves are as simple to pack as they are to use. In fact, most camping stoves already come contained in their own case, so packing them up won't be hard. They don't take up too much space and they're also lightweight. It only takes a few steps of preparation before the stove is ready to be packed away.
Things You'll Need:
- Dishwashing soap
- Gear container
Turn your camping stove off and wait for it to cool down completely.
Wet a cloth with warm soapy water and wipe the camping stove off to remove any leftover food that might have fallen into the stove's bottom compartment.
Allow the stove to completely dry.
Remove the propane canister by unscrewing it from the fuel valve attached to the end of the hose. Place your propane bottle inside of the stove, if the stove if designed to store it there.
Tuck the fuel hose safely inside of the stove, making sure the legs of the grill do not stab into it and puncture it.
Close your camp stove and secure the latch to the outer case. Place the stove and any propane bottles that don't fit inside of it inside of a container holding your gear where the stove won't get wet or be around high heat.
