We've all been in situations when a shower was out of the question. Whether it was a weekend music festival, a camping trip, a lunchtime gym sesh or maybe a surgical procedure. I, myself was recently laid up thanks to a surgery and couldn't shower for a week and a half. I had to get creative in terms of products and techniques that would leave me looking, feeling and smelling like myself.

Here are some of our favorite portable products that can be used without water to get you clean and mimic the fresh feeling of having just showered. So if you don't have a shower readily available or you've been given explicit instructions not to, you have some legit options for freshening up. After all, you can't just sit there and succumb to the stink. Toss them in your bag and you're ready for anything life throws at you — and no one has to know your little secret.
