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, AKA man wipes. Think of them as 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.
Jack Black All Over Wipes for Face and Body $15
Stash these head-to-toe wipes in your bag so you can neutralize your stench while dislodging a day’s worth of SPF, sand and sea salt before departing for post-beach beers.
Duke Cannon Cold Shower Cooling Field Towelettes $12
Besides being a decent stand-in for a much-needed shower, these heavy-duty cloths offer a welcome burst of cold on your hot body with an infusion of naturally cooling menthol, aloe and jojoba.
Dude Quick Dude Shower $6
Created for dudes by dudes based on the gender stereotypical assumption that showering is not your top priority, while smelliness is an ever-present issue, these heavy-duty cloths comes in portable packs designed to be used on-the-go.
Goodwipes Body Wipes $8
In addition to deodorizing your stinky self, these man wipes by goodwipes will literally help you chill out with naturally cooling ingredients, like Tea Tree oil, Peppermint, and Ginseng.
Yes to Natural Man Shower-to-Go $6
When the oppressive heat of summer has left you dog-tired and sweaty, consider these invigorating coffee seed extract spiked wipes a two birds, one stone strategy.
