Dallas, July 10, 2012 - It's summer time and with it comes vacation plans that often require extended time on the road, in a plane or on a warm, sandy beach - all of which can leave you feeling less than fresh. The Cottonelle brand partnered with travel expert Kendra Thornton to offer tips to ensure a smooth and easy transition from home to your vacation destination, wherever that may be.
"As an avid traveler, I know it can be difficult to maintain a routine on the go, but in the end it makes all the difference in how you feel," said Thornton. "A little pre-planning can help ensure you stay mentally and physically fresh, so you can relax and enjoy your trip. That's why I prioritize my personal care routine when I'm traveling and always incorporate a travel pack of Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes together with Cottonelle Ultra Comfort Toilet Paper - a combo I call the 'Clean Getaway!"
Thornton crafted the following tips for traveling through the summer with ease:
It's Clear Sailing with Cottonelle
Thornton calls her two-step bathroom routine the Clean Getaway, but others have visited Facebook.com/Cottonelle to suggest alternate names for the practice of pairing Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes and Cottonelle Ultra Comfort toilet paper for a fresh, clean experience.
