Cleansing Cloths Are the Best Way to Freshen Up Sans Shower

Cleansing cloths face wipes

Oh, those sweaty summer days. Between the combination of perspiration, sunscreen, and bug spray, plus the grime that sticks to the aforementioned tacky trio like a fly to flypaper, there is a good chance you will be feeling like you need a cold shower by mid-day. Barring the slim chance you can run home or to the gym to rinse off, the next best thing is toweling off with a disposable cloth infused with cleansing agents. Think of them like a shower-less shower that will make you temporarily so fresh and so clean so you can go from the beach to the bar or music festival to after-party or whatever without offending those around you. Here are some cleansing cloths designed for the body to keep on hand.
