This thread is long. Truckers get points on thier cards when they buy gas. They earn showers at TA's. Instead of spanging for $12, ask a trucker if they have extra showers on their card, some of them don't use them all. They'll bring you a shower ticket. It way faster than spanging for cash. I get free showers really fast, n feel on top of the world, n oh, so clever. That's a 'resource' for staying clean.

Wow this is an old thread, but I have something to add that I think will help. Ladies, buy yourself some feminine wipes! These are good for keeping 'down there' clean and your pH balanced and you can use them for other parts of your body if needed (armpits, or face, just not in that order!)
They are also very compact and individually wrapped so you can stash a few at the top of your bag and the rest in the big compartment of your bag for later use. The only downside I see to these is that they aren't flushable, but because each wipe comes in its own package, you can just put them back in and throw them out later. I haven't traveled quite yet so I have no idea how effective they are, but they have gotten me out of a pinch in my everyday life before. If you're wondering, I use Summer's Eve brand wipes. They are not too strongly scented, which I like. Certainly worth a try!

If anyone does this, let me know how it works out. :)

Thought id throw my exes homeade toothpaste in here. This is her recipe...

Measurements are not fixed or precise, measurements vary depending on the Jar being used.
For an average small jar:
4/6 Baking Soda
1/6 (+a little bit more) Bentonite Clay
1-2 tsp Turmeric (tooth whitener)
1-2 tsp Ground Sage (antiseptic)
1 tsp Salt (good for enamel)
12-16 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
10 drops Rosemary EO
5-7 drops Tea Tree EO (optional, may be strong for some to handle but good for your teeth)

STIR dry ingredients well.
THEN add the Essential Oils, and stir.
THEN add a little water, slowly, and stir it, do not over water!!!!
Mix it well until a paste forms. If you put too much water slowly add more baking soda.
You can flavour it with Cinnamon, or careful consideration of other EOs.

(The ingredients are usually bought bulk so its something you would need to store and take a container of finished product on the road probably. I find that recipe pretty bitter and earthy, more flavour would be my recomendation but it depends on your pallet)

Some suggestions that may or may not have already been said:

Planet fitness membership 20$/month you can go anywhere in the country, use the shower.

Free gym trials (CRUNCH, 24 hour fitness, local gyms) can be a day, few days, a week: Use the shower

Just scrub. Use a wash cloth or some shit, the odor and dead skin cells linger no matter how often you shower if you dont scrub.

If you arent able to change your underwear often, use pantiliners, at least you can change those more frequently and you can get a pack for under a dollar. Discharge is real out here.

I dont know about you but even if Im down to negative dollars, dont got a dime, dont got shit, dont got food, dont got the will to live, I still got a jar of coconut oil. Oil pulling: git a spoonful of coconut oil in your mouth every morning and swish it around for 10-30 min then spit it out. You can use coconut oil to moisturize your skin, and your hair before washing it. Might be ragged, might be broke, might be starving, but still out here lookin fabulous and serving face, you heard.

IFFFF you struggle with acne, cycstic acne, hormonal acne, clogged pores, problem skin like me, i breakout from fuckin breathing and cystic pimples hurt like a bitch. Get samples at Sephora, they’re free, get a bunch, collect them, steal them, whatever you wanna do. Depending on how my face feels like fucking up, I collect several samples of the same product so i dont have to carry a big ass bottle of somethin depending on if its for hormonal acne or whatever, or just to purge my pores like irish moor mud, or a microdermabrasion scrub and keep it in my bag. Yea i know this doesnt apply to most of you and you can eat whatever you want and roll around in trash all day and you never thought about a pimple in your life, but some of us aint as lucky! :p

Dollar store is great for shower in a bottle . Rubbing alcohol is perfect for a lot of uses. 70% is good without drying out the skin too bad. Plus cleaning cuts and scrapes. Start cook fires.
