There are a lot of minor, and some major, accidents that one can encounter while camping. There are always the occasional cuts, scrapes, and scratches.
One of the best ways to clean a cut, scrape or puncture wound is with cool water. Try holding the wound under running water or fill a tub with cool water and pour it from a cup over the wound.
