Keep Your Hands Clean on the Go

Labor Day is fast approaching, which means it's time to start planning your last Summer hurrahs. Everyone I know in San Francisco seems to be attending music festivals and heading off on camping trips. In my mind, there's one thing that unites these two activities, and that's the need for hand sanitizers on the go!

Whether you're camping far from any running water or using questionable public bathrooms, you can find lots of ways nowadays to keep your hands clean. I'm a big fan of soap leaves — little petals of soap that lather when you put them in water — as well as this Clean Well Hand Sanitizer Spray I recently started carrying around. From plain old Purell to fancy-smelling foams, there's no excuse to walk around with dirty hands. Here are some of my favorite finds for picnics, backpacking, big festivals, and more.

I love the B&BW stuff, but the alcohol content in it isn't actually high enough for it to be an effective sanitizer. I just use Purel, it's what my doctor uses, so that's good enough for me! Just make sure to moisturize too, because alcohol is so drying.

I'm not a sanitizer fan but I am borderline obsessive about washing my hands through the day. The soap leaves are great. I have some so tiny they look like they are in an sd card holder or a listerine strip case.

I have and use the B&BWorks gels. They smell great and I put them on first thing in the morning when I get off the Tube and/or bus ... my co-workers make fun of me for being so American, as Brits don't use this sort of thing often. lol!

I too carry around the Clean Well spray...and I just wanted to tell you all that it has a very 'heady' smell. It's totally natural and I love that, but the scent requires getting used to--and if you're about to eat, this spray's smell does transfer to food. I love it and really prefer it to the chemically laden sanitizers, but it's an acquired scent.
