Now, throughout the day, you can press elevator buttons or open doors and continually be protected from germs. Made with organic essential oils, it also softens hands. (Touch Germ Block, $5.99)

Nobody likes a stinky bathroom! So, how about stopping bathroom odor before it begins? Poo-Pourri is a kitschy but effective toilet deodorizing spray. To “own your throne” you simply spritz three to five sprays into the toilet bowl before you “do your business.” The natural essential oils create a barrier, trapping odor under the surface of the water. Scents include the aptly named Poo La La (peony, rose and citrus) and Royal Flush (eucalyptus and spearmint). (Poo-Pourri, $9.95 and up)

6. Hair Remover

Plus, who can resist scents such as Guava Mango, Tropical Coconut and Fresh Cucumber? (Coola Sunscreen Spray, $20 and up)

9. Dry shampoo

What’s the next best thing to actually shampooing your hair? Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo. Most dry shampoos simply absorb oil; they don’t remove it. PhD Dry Shampoo is made with powders that absorb oil and sweat. Those powders are then easily brushed away, leaving hair looking, feeling and smelling clean. (Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo, $12 and up)

10) Leg makeup
