Paper Shower Towelettes Are Awesome!

29 Jun

For many years I’ve carried a couple of Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes in the seat bag on my bike. I never liked Wet Ones because they were too small, too thin and, due to the high alcohol content, they dried out my skin. These wipes were far from what I wanted, but there just wasn’t anything else on the market that came close to what I needed—until Paper Shower!

Paper Shower Towelettes

Paper Shower Towelettes

Paper Shower towelettes come in a small package that is divided into two parts. You get one dry and one wet towelette (9″x12″ each) in every package. These towelettes have a very low alcohol content so they will not dry out your skin. The main ingredients in the wet towelette are water, Aloe vera, glycerine, soap, ethanol, and vitamin E.

This product was invented by an avid cyclist, Dr. Jim Bahcall, and after one use you will see that he designed them with fellow cyclists in mind! While they are extremely compact, they are durable enough to wipe off a whole day’s worth of sweat, mud and road grime. On hot and humid days I sometimes use one in the middle of a ride just to cool off a bit. On really long rides I use them before entering a convenience store (a Gatorade stop) just to wipe off the sweat and make me feel human again.

You might not always need the dry towelettes, but they won’t go to waste. I keep a couple of the dry wipes in the glove box of my Jeep and they have come in handy on several occasions.

These wipes are not just for cyclists. Last summer I got stuck overnight at JFK International Airport and had to sleep on the floor with several thousand strangers (volcanic ash from Iceland had stopped most flights to Europe). Since I had not yet discovered Paper Shower, I had to clean up in the morning with half a dozen Wet Ones and I never felt that they did any good. One Paper Shower would have saved me from a lot of misery. I am never traveling overseas again without several packages of Paper Shower in my carry-on luggage.

I bought my first package of Paper Shower from Amazon.com, but this is one of those rare cases where it is actually cheaper to buy directly from the manufacturer. The price starts at $7.50 for a six-pack, and you will find decent price breaks for ordering in larger quantities. The company stands behind their product with a generous satisfaction guarantee and they even offer free shipping on all U.S. orders.
