Travel Towels and Soaps

Solid Soaps:

  • You need to travel with solid soaps.
  • They weigh much less than liquid soaps.
  • They can be placed in your carry-on and they aren’t subject to the TSA Liquids rules.
  • A bar of soap will last two people for almost a month on the road.
  • Bar Soap can be stored in a flat pack like the Matador FlatPak Soap Bar Case

Solid Shampoos:

  • It is difficult to find a solid shampoo that actually works and doesn’t leave your hair feeling strange.
  • We tried several solid shampoos and decided that the HiBar Maintain Solid Shampoo from R.E.I. worked the best.
  • This is the green colored bar.
  • We tried the HiBar Moisturizer Shampoo and the Shampoo and Conditioner bar and didn’t like them as well.
  • The bar should last about a month for two people.
  • I made a breathable pouch for the bar out of a small travel towel with a net lining.

Solid Conditioner:

  • We tried several solid conditioners and we liked the HiBar Maintain Solid Conditioner from R.E.I. worked the best.
  • This is the green colored bar.
  • We tried the HiBar Moisturizer Conditioner and didn’t like it as well.
  • The bar can also be used for shaving cream.
  • One bar should last about a month for two people.

Travel Towels:

  • A microfiber towel is great for travel.
  • It absorbs a lot of water and it dries quickly.
  • Microfiber doesn’t feel as nice as terry cloth but it packs much smaller.
  • The microfiber towels in the exercise section of Academy Sports are much larger and less expensive than the ones in the camping and swimming sections.
  • We found these Gear Aid Quick-Dry XL Microfiber Towels at Academy. They are large enough to lay out at the beach or to use as a blanket and they come with a nice carry case that has room for all our soaps, shampoos, and conditioners.
