Caring for your tent

Stop the rot…
Always ensure your tent is completely dry before packing it away. It is a good idea to unpack it as soon as you get home and leave it in a dry place to air thoroughly.

Broken poles…
Bent or broken poles are the most common problems you might face when spending time under “canvas”. You can often buy spare poles at camping shops. If you are miles from anywhere, a small roll of duct tape is useful for carrying out temporary repairs.

Rips and tears…
Stony terrain or sharp items can cause small holes in the groundsheet. Placing an extra groundsheet underneath can help to reduce the chance of this happening, however, if you do find a small hole in the groundsheet, duct tape can be used to carry out a quick temporary repair. 

At home, you can mend the tear properly using either a spare piece of tent fabric or a self-adhesive repair patch. For best results, hold something flat against the tear from inside the tent for a seamless finish. Afterwards, spray the area with a waterproofing spray and you are ready for your next outdoor adventure.
