While some novice travelers may spend hours scouring Amazon for the latest travel accessories, seasoned travelers know some of the best travel products can be found anywhere, even at your local drugstore. Rather than spending a huge chunk of your travel budget on the fanciest travel-sized goods, here are a few items to stock up on for your next trip and ones you can find right down the street.


Wrinkle-Releasing Spray
Often available in travel-sized bottles, this product can be a traveler’s lifesaver, especially if the trip involves a formal event like a wedding or reunion. Toss it in your bag and take it out for a quick spray to your clothes once you arrive at your hotel, followed by immediately hanging your clothes on hangers in the room’s closet.


Single-Use Toothbrushes
While not the most eco-friendly products, single-use toothbrushes, like Colgate Wisp, can be useful to combat stale breath after a long flight. The toothbrushes don’t require a sink or water, but instead freshen your mouth with a “freshening bead” activated when pressed against your teeth.


Dry Shampoo
Although not considered a viable replacement for an actual shampoo-and-conditioner session in the shower, dry shampoo can be a good-enough alternative to spruce up roots when your next shower might be days away.


Disposable Face Wipes
With a variety of brands to choose from, carrying facial cleansing cloths in your carry-on bag ensures your next face-freshening session is never too far away.
