Keeping Healthy & Clean While Traveling

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

Whether traveling by plane, train or automobile, here are some products that I wouldn’t be without. All of these items are allowed to be carried on the airplane, since they are under 3 oz. and are not gels.

Increase your odds of staying healthy with all-natural Flight Spray — the first nasal spray created especially for travelers! Let’s face it. Dry aircraft cabins, recycled air, and sneezing, coughing passengers are not a good mix when you’re embarking on a trip. Flight Spray is made of Hawaiian-grown Turmeric Root (an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal agent), Spearmint (a natural antiseptic), and purified water. It helps prevent viral infections by creating an unsuitable environment for inhaled germs to reproduce. Also alleviates nasal dryness and relieves cold symptoms. Alcohol-free. (1 oz spray bottle weighs 1½ oz)

Now you can get that just-brushed feeling anytime, anywhere. With Oral-B Brush-Ups® textured teeth wipes, all you have to do is rip one open, slip it on your finger, and brush your teeth. You’ll get a clean mouth and fresh breath when you’re on the go—no water or sink required. You can find Brush-Ups® in the oral care aisle in a store near you. So instead of carrying a toothbrush and toothpaste (which may not be allowed on board) bring along a few packets of Oral-B Brush-Ups. Your seat-mates will thank you for it!

Nice’n Clean antibacterial hand wipes come in packs of twenty or in Individually wrapped anti-bacterial moist wipes that kills germs, helps prevent the spread of colds. They contain moisturizer plus aloe and do not irritate your skin. I have been using these for years and happy to report that I have been cold free. They are also useful on children and adults, after a messy meal, after using the washroom, or just for refreshing your hands.

For a complete body refreshing, Fresh Bath body wipes is the way to go. No water or rinsing required.

Fresh Bath™ disposable body wipes keep you feeling clean and fresh without soap and water. Each thick, lightly scented 8″ x 10″ wipe contains a patented cleansing formula (with Vitamins A, E and aloe vera) that effectively neutralizes odor. PH balanced, alcohol-free and anti-bacterial, they leave skin feeling refreshed and moisturized. Wipe the grime away with these easy-to-use wipes. Great for freshening up en route or after a day of sightseeing.

Fresh Bath™ Bio Wipes give that clean-all-over feeling even when you’re miles from the nearest shower. Bio-degradable wipes provide antibacterial, rinse-free bathing. Fresh Bath™ Wipe is moistened with patented cleansing formula containing micellized vitamins A and B with aloe vera for skin moisturization.

I have found many of these products on drugstore.com.

Wishing you clean, safe and healthy travels.
