Can the word "toiletries" ever be seriously paired with "emergency" in a real sense? Most definitely, especially as we hit the height of winter sickness. Keeping a toiletry kit stocked with emergency travel items is a lifesaver for life's unexpected incidents.
Take this past weekend for example. Traveling with my five-year old niece, she complained of a sudden sense of lethargy and upset stomach. Five minutes later, the stomach bug reared its ugly head with all of the nasty implications. Dealing with a sick child is stressful enough at home, when you are surrounded by medicinal creature comforts. But on the road, a lack of needed toiletries can wreck havoc on an already messy situation.
Our answer? Keeping a fully stocked "Emergency Car Kit" in the car and one always tucked in a carry-on for all travel. We cannot recommend highly enough the need to keep a few Disposal Vomit Bags on hand (because you just never know!), some Wet Wipes, Kleenex, and an assortment of over-the-counter medications.
Give yourself peace-of-mind when traveling. Assembling your own emergency kit is as easy as 1-2-3 with Pack Simply. It is the very instances like this past weekend which prompted us to start the service. And in solving our own travel problems, we hope to make your travels that much easier.
