Keeping Your Hands Clean While Traveling?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at a long trip from E. Europe to the West Coast of the United States in a couple of months -- probably 24 hours travel time, at least 3 flights. I was just wondering what you all use to keep your hands clean if you can't get to soap and water...I'm remembering a flight to Asia where we hit major turbulence and were locked in our seats for a long time. I'm going to bring food/snacks with me but some of it is finger-friendly. Don't want to be using icky fingers however.

Are there brands of handi-wipes or baby wipes that are gluten-free? This is just not an issue I've thought about and my mother said she'd send me whatever I need but I have to be specific for her to go shopping.

Thanks.

Make your own soap and water wipes.

One baggy - soap and water on paper towels.

Second baggy - water only on paper towels.

It's the soap part that gets the gluten off. No need to over complicate it.

Great idea. I'll just have to have my mother send me some good American paper towels. The Polish ones shred when they get wet...!

Goodness, you can't win can you???

What about the high-end paper napkins (sorry, can't think of a brand but it would probably be different anyway...)?

We are going on a long-haul flight next week and will be traveling for just over 30 hours. I dread the flights horribly (chronic pain). Turbulence is one of my nightmares, being forced to sit in an awful position with extreme pain. Have you ever seen those towelettes wrapped up in a long roll that look like candy sort of? They are dry but all you do is dip them in water and they become towelettes. That only works, of course, if you have water with you. I cannot think of the brand name. Will post if I find it. I take either those or just plain old wipes along for flights.

Hehehe. Some days it feels like I can't catch a break anywhere anytime.

Napkins are pretty flimsy here -- but TESCO has some decent ones. I'll have to test them in water!
