How not to smell like a backpacker—no offense
How to smell clean even when you aren’t
If you’re planning on going backpacking after college, please don’t take “pack light” that seriously and leave with just your toothbrush. You don’t want to discover mid-transit that you’re starting to look scruffy and that your nails are long enough that you can open up a soda can with your pinky. Since you don’t want to bring the contents of your entire bathroom either, I’ll suggest a few double- or triple-duty items that aren’t heavy on the luggage. And if you end up not having access to running water on your travels, they can serve as quick fixes (though do still try and take a shower!).
