Last week, I shared 8 ways I keep my purse organized. In that post, I included having a car supply kit. Today, I am going to share one of the two kits with you. I decided that two kits were necessary in my vehicle; one for hygiene purposes and the other for emergency situations. Today, I am focusing on the hygiene kit.
The hygiene kit will include items that I may forget when I am out and about. For instance, if I am at a restaurant and drop ketchup on my shirt. Or, when I get food stuck in my teeth and need some assistance getting it out. Having food stuck between my teeth drives me crazy!
For my kit, I have included the following items:
- lint roller
- stain remover pin
- everyday wipes
- nail kit (file, clippers, & tweezers)
- small first aid kit (band-aids, gauze, & cleaning wipes)
- hair ties
- bobby pins
- cough drops
- mouth wash
- hand sanitizer
- floss sticks
- safety pin
- feminine products
- small scissors
Remember: Make your hygiene kit fit your family. You may need different items than I have included in mine.
One quick statement: When the weather gets hot here in Arkansas (it can get pretty steamy in the summer), some of these items may have to be removed so they do not melt (cough drops, for example).
I was determined to use one of the small travel pouches that I already had in my house instead of running out to purchase a new one. After taking a quick glance at my travel bin, I found a Vera Bradley medium hanging organizer that I purchased when it was on sale this past summer that would be perfect to use. I really have no idea why I purchased the organizer, except for the fact that I love the Heather pattern, it is a retired item, and I liked the price. So, I am glad it is now getting some use.
Most of the items I have included are still factory sealed, but the hand sanitizer is not. So, I placed the hand sanitizer in a ziplock bag in case it leaks a little. I don’t want it to ruin the bag or anything around it. I will do the same for the other items once they are opened.
