For those of us that HAVE to atleast do a little something about how our hide feels....I came up with Trucker wipes !!! Baby wipes are ok...but wayy to little, and WAY to expensive. I got a plastic box with a flip lid. I bought a roll of the WHITE paper shop towels ( they are really heavy paper towels), you can find them at auto stores, hardware stores, etc. I buy a bottle of baby shampoo, and I'm ready to make my trucker wipes. I fill the plastic box 1/2 full of hot water, add some shampoo, mix and start laying the towels in it, one at a time. Sounds like it takes alot of time, but I can do it in about 10 minutes. put towels in the box till the water is all gone. Then when you can't get a shower, pull out the wipes and wash up. The reason I use baby shampoo is that it doesn't have any acid type stuff in it. So since you don't rinse it off, it doesn't matter, it won't irritate your skin. And it they does feel wonderful. And lets face it....its better than nothing. So give it a try... And they also work great for cleaning the inside of the truck ( don't use on windows).

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

What kind of plastic box do you use?

If you buy the roll of white paper shop towels first, you will see what size plastic box you will need. I was fortunate to find one with a flip lid...works perfect...but a snap lid will work, just harder to get into...lol. I just bought some lavender baby shampoo...man..that stuff smells so good, I made a box of wipes for me to use here at the house !!!!

You can use any plastic box that will not leak. I like the flip lid, but a pop lid would work too...just whatever will work for you. When I get the urge to make them for me at home (especially during the summer,cuz I can't stand to be hot and sticky) I will add some of my favorite perfume to the mix...just a thought.
