I am getting ready to join my husband on the road for my very first time. I am nervous and want advise on personal hygiene.... short hair vs long hair, what's raider to maintain... what are some must haves.

I wear long hair. No cuts needed to maintain and trims are easy on hometime. I'm pretty simple otherwise also. Shampoo/body wash, sunscreen and deodorant.

Of course there are other things that you may decide you need.

You can get these wipes at Walmart in the incontinence aisle. they are three times bigger and stronger than baby wipes. much easier for a quick rub down between showers or extreme heat. great for feminine monthly needs too.

And as gross as it sounds, you might have an emergency. Not all customers have clean ladies rooms. Some have only porta potties. in training i stood on one cause i was desperate. lol my company sells travel commodes, but i made my own cheap one lol.

I have a small rubbermaid container with a tight lid and line it with a Glad black steel flex 13 gal trash bag. put the Feline Fresh kitty litter and im always ready if i need to. this litter is basically pine wood like broken chop sticks. The moisture breaks down the wood into saw dust. you smell nothing but pine. i have a cat and this is the best stuff for a truck ever. no smell, no dust flying around...and it is great for gaining traction in the winter!

I have a 3 gallon bucket that the camping seat snaps onto (usually a 5 gallon homer bucket is the norm but I found a shorty)

Instead of kitty litter I buy Walmart cheaply diapers. Size 2 or 3. They soak it up and it isn't a scary squishy bag to remove. I know 😳 We girls always have this conversation.

I always keep bottled water and the plastic Solo cups for brushing my teeth in the truck. the cups are better for my cereal than small bowls. im a klutz, and the bowls are easier to spill. shower shoes cause some of these truckers have some nasty nasty looking feet and show them off with sandals!!!

we did a thread like this before ill look for. Amazon sells something called a SheWee...its basically like a funnel for the woman to use and i know drivers who then collect it in a milk jug. i couldnt do that i would have pee everywhere.

there are various camping and travel commodes you can buy. some even have a water tank and flush, but can be very expensive. One my friend has uses gel packs and turns it all to gel a d you through out the whole cartridge.

there are folks who use camping showers. look on Youtube. this one guy has a shower curtain and hangs the water bag up and has the curtain go into a rubbermaid container. the disassembles it all.
