#LetsTalkBums Twitter Party

Travelling with the family can be a really stressful time and trying to stay prepared for everything can be so hard.  Ensuring that you have some of these wipes with you on the go will make sure you are at least clean for whatever might happen!  There are so many times where these have saved me when I was in a pinch.

  1. 4o hour bus trip to Arizona and these were my face washing saviors, especially when you don’t have the option of running water at all times.  It was a tough trip but these guys kept me fresh faced and happy!
  2. My youngest child gets motion sickness and there have been times were I have not had these wipes and times where I have.  I can honestly say having them made the clean up just that much more painless while on the go!
  3. Camping!  I can’t tell you enough times that these have come in handy for camping.  All bathroom breaks while on the road, back up clean up for outhouses with no tissue, the list goes on.

These are not something to leave the house without and the to go packs can easily sit in your purse quietly waiting to save the day!   Make sure to join in all the fun at the twitter party Aug 17th at 9pm EST: RSVP to ensure you are eligible to win!
