I don't clean my jewelry often, but when I do I'm usually on my way to something important, which leaves me in a pinch. The last time I went to a wedding I realized just how mucky my own rings had gotten and cleaned them up by using a Q-tips cotton swab and toothpaste. It's kind of amazing how well it works... but I guess it makes sense, since that's what's keeping my teeth squeaky clean.
Dry shampoo is just one more travel-sized annoyance I'd have to buy when I travel, so instead I shake some baby powder in a plastic baggie and bring it with me. It's perfect for when I travel to humid areas and when I don't have time to wash my hair first thing in the morning.
Coconut oil has so many uses: moisturizer, hair gel, makeup remover and shaving cream, to name a few, that I like to scoop a large tablespoon into an old lip balm pot. It always comes in handy, and it's that many fewer products I need to pack.
Travel-sized products are hard to come by, but finding something that's fit for perfume is an even bigger pain. I like to spray cotton swabs with my favorite fragrance and keep them in a baggie. When I'm ready, I rub the cotton swabs on my pulse points. The fragrance is a little more subtle, but still better than trying to lug my perfume around with me.
