Paper plates are a staple of any camping trip - they are cheap, reliable and easy to transport and distribute. Environmentally-friendly disposal can take place with a campfire, and they can even be used as kindling in a pinch. But the grease and oils from food can sometimes penetrate the paper surface and drip onto the canvas, wood or clothes underneath, frustrating many an unsuspecting victim.
A set of Bamboo Plate Holders
from Mr. Bar-b-q can take care of this problem. The stylish weave looks great at any table, whether at an outdoor picnic or an indoor dining room. The bamboo surface prevents slipping and will protect tablecloths from unwanted stains.
"I have been looking for bamboo paper plate holders for months at Walmart, Target, Dollar Stores, Hobby Lobby, you name it and they were nowhere to be found," said one customer on CampingWorld.com. "[I] stumbled across the Camping World website and found exactly what I was looking for. I bought four packages! These are very sturdy and should last awhile."
The next time campers are using paper dishes, they should consider using a plate holder for stability and a festive garnish to any meal.
