To be honest with you, when I got these in my Birchbox I assumed I would never use them and tossed them in the "bag" with other toiletry products I keep in my closet. Then... I got invited on a caving/ camping trip into the wilderness. On the second day I came out of the cave and realized just how badly I needed a shower... and to add to my personal terror, I now had to ride on a crowded van back to our campsite for the evening. Thankfully, I packed these deodorizing wipes, went to change out in the woods, and used these to quickly freshen up... they did the job I needed them to do! Not perfect, but a heckuvalot better than the alternative that day.
