A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Martha Van Inwegen of Life Elements, Inc. to see if I was interested in receiving samples of Action Wipes to review for the Bike Diva site. Action Wipes, made by Life Elements, is touted as "the ultimate wet wipe."
I've been carrying along packages of baby wipes, in my athletic bag, to use after my bike rides. The packages of baby wipes are too large to fit in my bike bag that is under my seat. The size of individual baby wipes are also a bit small, so I usually have to use around 3-4 to get cleaned up. Thanks to Action Wipes large size, I only need to use one to clean up after a sweaty bike ride.
Action Wipes are available in both 5 piece and 15 piece zip-lock packages. Action Wipes are even machine washable, making them the ultimate green product. The 5 piece package is small enough to fit in my bike bag, or the back pocket of my cycling jersey.
Action Wipes can be used by athletes of all kinds including triathletes, runners, walkers and cyclists. They are perfect to take along in your bike bag to be used as a quick cleanup after rides. Bike commuters, that don't have access to a shower, will especially like Action Wipes. They are antiseptic, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. Use Action Wipes to clean off sweat, dirt and grime, after a workout, and help keep body odor away.
I gave a package of Action Wipes to my husband. He keeps them in the back of his work truck to use anytime he decides to do a quick mountain bike ride after work. He is a trail boss at our local mountain bike park and he also uses Action Wipes for a quick cleanup after helping to build and maintain the mountain bike trails.
I brought Action Wipes with me to the time trial race my husband and I did on Sunday. To conserve weight, and ultimately gain speed, I remove all non-essential equipment from my bike before doing a race - that includes removing the bag from under the seat of my bike. But it was just a few pedal strokes on the bike from the end of the race back to my husband's truck. My Action Wipes were waiting for me in the truck. It had stopped raining just before the race start, but the roads were still wet and muddy. I was covered in sweat and muddy sand, so I cleaned up and cooled down with Action Wipes immediately after the race.
Action Wipes have a pleasant scent thanks to their all-natural essential oils - frankincense, eucalyptus and tea tree. Other products made by Life Elements include Sports Spray Cooling Mist, Clean Body Wash, Refresh Body Spray and Soothe Body Cream.
