Individual Wet Wipes for Travel: A Convenient Solution for On-The-Go Cleanliness

When you’re travelling, you might not always have a sink, soap, and clean water to hand. Whether you’re on a long-haul flight or a camping trip in the woods, individual wet wipes can help you to maintain good hygiene. We all want to stay healthy and feel fresh whilst on holiday. Wipes are a convenient, portable, and versatile solution for on-the-go cleanliness.

Here, the Guardpack team discuss the benefits of wet wipes for travel and share some tips on how to use them effectively.

Why are individual wet wipes great for travel?

Wet wipes are a must-have item for any traveller. Whether you’re going on a weekend city break or a month-long backpacking trip, they’ll always come in handy! Here are a few of the benefits you will find in packing wet wipes for your trip:

  • Convenience: Individual wet wipes are compact and lightweight, making them easy to carry in your backpack, purse, or even pocket. They don’t take up much space and can be used anytime, anywhere.
  • Versatility: Wet wipes can be used for a variety of purposes, such as cleaning your hands, face, and body. They can also be used to wipe own surfaces, such as aeroplane trays and hotel room sinks.
  • Hygiene: Wet wipes are designed to kill bacteria and germs, which makes them an excellent way to prevent illness and infections when you’re travelling. They’re especially useful in situations where soap and water are not readily available.
  • Comfort: Let’s face it – travelling can be uncomfortable at times, and wet wipes can provide a refreshing and soothing sensation. They can help you feel clean and revitalised, even when you’re far away from home.

Tips for using individual wet wipes effectively

Whilst wet wipes are certainly a great solution for on-the-go cleanliness, there are some tips you should keep in mind to ensure that you’re using them effectively:

  • Choose the right wipes: There are many different types of wipes on the market, and it’s important to choose the right ones for your needs. Look for wipes that are gentle on your skin, free from harsh chemicals, and designed for the purpose you’re using them for.
  • Don’t flush them: Wet wipes are not designed to be flushed down the toilet. Even if they’re labelled as ‘flushable’, they should never be flushed! This can cause blockages and harm the environment. Instead, dispose of them in the bin and, wherever possible, invest in 100% biodegradable alternatives (like those produced by Guardpack!).
  • Be mindful of allergies: If you have sensitive skin or allergies, it’s a good idea to test the wipes on a small patch of skin before using them all over your body. If you experience any itching, redness or swelling, stop using the wipes immediately.
  • Use them sparingly: Whilst wet wipes are convenient, they shouldn’t replace traditional methods of hygiene. Be sure to use them sparingly and continue to wash your hands (for example) with soap and water, wherever possible.

Other uses for individual wet wipes when travelling

Contrary to popular belief, however, wet wipes are not just for cleaning your hands and body when travelling! The simplest of wipes will also have a variety of other purposes, such as:

  • Removing makeup: Wet wipes are an easy and convenient way to remove makeup at the end of the day. The right wipe will be gentle on your skin and can even remove waterproof mascara!
  • Cleaning surfaces: Wet wipes can be used to clean a multitude of surfaces. Anything from the previously mentions aeroplane trays and hotel room sinks, to the grottiest of public toilet countertops. This can help prevent the spread of germs and bacteria.
  • Simply freshening up: Wet wipes can provide a quick and easy way to freshen up when you’re feeling sweaty or sticky (a relatively common problem depending on the holiday!). They can help you feel clean and refreshed, even when you don’t have access to a shower or sink.

No matter where your adventures take you, keeping a few individual wet wipes to hand is just a no-brainer! By following some simple tips, you can use wet wipes effectively and safely whilst you’re on the road, so be sure to keep them on your list of essentials.
