In-the-air-200Brad Pitt dropped this tip during an in an interview years ago. The question was about what he does to feel good after these endless transcontinental flights. His answer was “I use baby wipes”!

And it is true, unscented baby wipes are ideal for use as a wash cloth on long flights. Use them shortly before you land to get rid of the sweaty, slept-in-clothes feeling. You will feel even better if you can change into fresh cloths afterwards. I usually try to have a couple of fresh T-shirts in my hand luggage. This really makes a difference.

If you can get the wipes in a travel pack, then they don’t take up more space than a cell phone. For less than a buck they are one of my travel essentials.
