Though not as glamorous, the clean up job is just as important as cooking to be sure that things are ready for the next meal and to keep everyone safe from harmful bacteria. It is a job to be sure to do correctly.

1. Right before your patrol is ready to eat, or even sooner if you're able, put on a large pot of water to boil for clean up. This will ensure that you can start clean up right away without delay. It will help it go better because food will not have had the chance to dry and become much harder to clean.

2. Make it clear to your patrol that they should all have enough food to eat, but no one should take more than he can eat. The goals are not to waste food and make clean up go smoothly. Be sure that before anyone puts a dish in the clean up station that the dish has no food particles in it. Any food that is left should be scraped out into the trash first.

3. Once the water for clean up is boiling, set up a cleaning station. Use the three tub method for this when you are using a chuck box. The first tub has hot water and a few drops of biodegradable soap, the second tub has hot rinse water, and the third tub has cool water with a capful of bleach.

4. If you are backpacking, boil water in your largest pot and clean individual mess kits and patrol gear using the boiling water sterilization method.

5. Each patrol member washes his own mess kit items first.

6. Then the clean up crew washes the patrol items such as pots, pans, and utensils. They should also wipe down the food prep surfaces such as the chuck box and the stove.

7. Dispose of the clean up station water by using a designated sump (if available) or carrying it at least 200 feet away from the tenting area and dispersing it over a wide area of ground.

8. Be sure to secure the trash at night after clean up is finished. This will deter wild animals from entering your camp at night. If you are in a designated camp, place the trash in the dumpster (if available) or in a vehicle. If you are in the back country, hang it as you would a bear bag.
