Good personal hygiene is important for our health and social encounters. Often, there are times when we need to use hygiene products while we are away from our homes. Small toiletry bathroom items like soap, shampoo, deodorant, a toothbrush, and toothpaste are just a few of the basic hygiene items that can easily be placed in a small kit or bag. These hygiene kits are used for personal use, travel, emergencies, homeless people, and recreation. Below are 5 ways to use a hygiene kit. We’ve provided a few details about each type so you can decide what meets your needs.
Travel kits are meant to be used for overnight occasions where bathroom supplies are not accessible. You may be traveling through the airport and require small-size toiletries because of TSA requirements. Basic supplies help keep us fresh and clean while we travel away from home. A travel hygiene kit is ideal for these situations.
Homeless hygiene kits, also known as homeless care kits, offer dignity and needed assistance for the less fortunate. Individuals and groups often purchase bulk toiletries and package kits to give out to homeless people or even donate them to homeless shelters. Consider giving back to the needy by making homeless hygiene kits for those who really need them.
Personal hygiene items include mouthwash, lotions, soap, shampoo, and other small bathroom supplies. These personal necessities help us feel fresh and clean throughout the day. These items and others are considered basic items all hygiene kits include. Because of their small size, these kits are convenient to keep in your office desk drawer, glovebox, or even a locker at school.
Emergencies and natural disasters can happen at any time. We should be prepared for the unexpected. Essential hygiene supplies don’t take up much room so be prepared and include the basic toiletries in your emergency go-bug-out bag. Essential items would include all of the basic items used in a personal hygiene kit but also include dental floss, shaving cream, and a razor. Remember, we can’t predict when a disaster or emergency will happen but we can be prepared.
Recreation hygiene kits are used after working out at the gym or being active outdoors. Small “hotel size” bathroom items like soap, shampoo, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, and shaving supplies are ideal items for any active recreational hygiene kits.

Self-care items are usually inexpensive but become incredibly valuable the moment they’re gone. Forgetting to pack a toothbrush is a great example of this--Missing an item that’s worth a few dollars can cause a lot more frustration than just losing a few dollars. For that reason, it’s not hard to see why so many people have a “backup” hygiene kit. Whether for traveling, emergencies, or a friend in need, a hygiene kit now will likely prevent some major frustration later.
