Toothbrushes and toothpaste, deodorant and shower gel, shampoo and soap are some of the most important care products so that we can also carry out our daily personal hygiene on vacation. However, most products are so large that they do not all fit in the toiletry bag. For this reason, most care products are available in a much smaller travel size - or you fill the contents into handy travel bottles. We have listed below which hygiene articles there are other space-saving alternatives for the holiday.
An ordinary toothbrush can be stowed in the toilet bag with or without a protective cover - but this also takes up more space. A foldable travel toothbrush, on the other hand, can be reduced in size by half. There are now even travel toothbrushes made of bamboo or an electric cordless travel toothbrush for which you don't need a charging cable.
At just 43 grams, this foldable toiletry bag from Decathlon is a real lightweight. It takes up little space in your suitcase (or backpack) and still offers enough storage space for your hygiene items: the bag has a total of three pockets, which can also be hung up using a loop. When folded, it has the following dimensions: 18 cm × 8 cm × 3 cm.
Not only the travel time has high season, but also mosquitoes. The insect bite healer from Beurer is a practical companion for relieving burning, itching and swelling: Targeted treatment with heat (there are two levels) is intended to treat the typical symptoms quickly and effectively, without any chemicals, and relieve pain.
Toothbrush case and travel mug in one: With a height of 19.5 centimeters each, this two-piece set offers enough space for several toothbrushes and toothpaste - and can also be used as a drinking and spit mug. The material is (according to the manufacturer) three millimeters thick, odorless and non-toxic. One mug is gray and one is white.
Shampoo and shower gel, conditioner and body lotion take up far too much space in the toiletry bag. So that you don't have to do without your body care products, you can simply fill the contents into handy travel bottles (90 ml each): This set contains six, all made of silicone and 100 percent BPA-free. There are also waterproof stickers for labeling purposes.
A canister for drinking water (holds ten litres) proves to be very useful, especially on the campsite, but also on the go: It is foldable and therefore fits in any suitcase, weighs only 200 grams, is transparent for the water level indicator and can even hold up to 60 Withstand degrees hot water - for example for washing dirty dishes.
In contrast to classic wet wipes, these from Travel Buddy are 100 percent biodegradable. They contain aloe vera and vitamin E, are hypoallergenic and free of alcohol, parabens and latex. The 20 by 30 centimeter cloths are equally suitable for removing dirt, sweat, body odors and oil residues.
In other countries, such as Dubai, Cairo or Japan, people prefer to wash their behind with water – and not with toilet paper. On vacation, this technique is particularly useful outdoors and on campsites if you have a mobile bidet with you. It is simply filled with water and held on the desired spot.
With a length of eight meters, this retractable clothesline is the ideal companion for on the go. If you do your laundry on holiday, you can easily hang them up and let them air dry afterwards. In addition to the leash, the set also includes 20 clips and ten buckles for fastening wet and clean laundry.
Last but not least, this practical set from Deuter should not be missing in your suitcase: so that you can provide first aid, it contains the essentials for treating small injuries - such as bandages, wound compresses, plasters, latex gloves, scissors and a signal whistle. In addition, there is an emergency guide in the set that tells you what to do and when.
