Wemmi wipes, £1.99 for a tube of eight
Time used: One year
What’s good: These small tablets (about double the thickness of an extra strong mint) expand to become a half-way house between a tissue and a flannel when dosed with a modest amount of water.
They’ve come in handy for wiping visors, taking dead flies off headlights and mirrors, and even for freshening the face on exceptionally hot days. They’re conveniently stored in a plastic tube, which is by turn equally easy to stash in even the smallest of bags.
What’s not: They are slightly pungent (making them not so ideal for freshening the face, except when in dire need), and they do absolutely rely upon you having a source of clean water in order to use them. So, we’re talking rest room rather than hard shoulder.
