Shampoo, body wash, and shaving cream aren’t usually high on our list of high-tech innovations, but with TSA restrictions limiting our carry-on liquids it is becoming more and more difficult to fly with a carryon suitcase alone. If you don’t have to pack a lot, it’s the best way to fly. You get to skip the baggage check on the way in, and leave the airport immediately after you deplane. If hygiene is a top priority, however, the TSA makes it pretty difficult to fly without checking a bag. We found something that will make it a little easier. These Travelon Toiletry Sheets ($5) are dry enough to get past your airport security screening, but pull one out, add water, and you’ll have liquid shampoo, conditioner, body wash, or shaving cream in a flash.
Why we’ve never heard of these before is a mystery, but we’re glad we know about them now. The sheets come in packs of 50 and are lightly scented and biodegradable. They will even fit in your pocket, making them perfect for camping or that emergency freshen-up kit you keep in your car or at your office. You never know when you might need a little refresher. We will feel like we beat the system carrying a whole pile of these through airport security, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
