Finding a natural solution
I don’t know about you, but during the summer my feet don’t stand a chance. The hotter it gets, the more often I wear sandals and flip flops. And though I'll never understand why, my feet attract dirt like a magnet. It's absolutely impossible to keep them clean all day long without some kind of help. So when I stumbled upon Wipe Your Feet by Jamar Labs, I was intrigued.
Wipe Your Feet hydrates, moisturizes and deodorizes feet with eucalyptus oil, a common ingredient found in cold remedies, and menthol, an organic compound obtained from mint oils. Both of these herbal extracts are known for their healing powers. Eucalyptus is well known for its antiseptic properties; menthol has proven antimicrobial activity and is often used to ease stress and tension.

I have enjoyed toting these wipes around in my purse for the past month. If that storage-method doesn't appeal to you, pack them in your gym bag or car to keep your feet free from dirt all day long. Even though they are intended as feet wipes, they are really just fancy wet wipes that will also moisturize yours hands and face. And don't worry about feeling slimy afterward. The wetness will dry after one minute of use, leaving your skin feeling fresh, smelling clean and slime-free. The only thing that bothered me was the flimsiness of the clasp. During its one-month stay in my purse I discovered that it had come undone several times. I was very worried about the wipes drying out. Thinking back, a tight rubber band would have easily solved that problem.
Jamar Labs also offers Wipe Your Hands, made with the essential oils of lavender and chamomile, and Wipe Your Face, made with the essential oils of aloe and chamomile. All three of these products are paraben-free and made with 100 percent natural cotton. Each pack of 30 costs $7.95; the travel-size pack of 5 costs $1.95.
