Hygiene at Work

Recently started biking to work.

It's about 7.5 miles each way and I'm considerably sweaty when I get there.

I don't have showering facilities at work and wondered if anyone knew of good products for washing with a limited amount of water?

Also, what do people do with their sweaty clothes?

    Baby wipes ? Can you leave your kit anywhere to dry ?

    And you may want to take it a bit easier on the way in, or maybe wear less kit if you're really sweaty after 7.5 miles ?

    Only option. I used to have to do this. Then you can ride hard/add extra distance on way home if you want.

    Used to use baby wipes and change of clothes. Luckily now have showers and have to change into work wear now so only need too take a towel and stuff. As I said above try baby wipes and a towel to dry off the damp wipes and thrash the bike going home when it doesn't matter kid you smell a bit.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Our faclities are single person room (lockable) with sink and toilet - so it's a strip wash with (cold) water for me. I take my own towel as I'm sure nobody else wants me to use the communal towel for anything other than drying hands ... :o
  • Shower or not take a towel. It's amazing what difference just wiping your body down to remove the sweat makes. Baby wipe the important areas for sure.
