Lately I’ve run across a few strange and useful travel items. I thought it would be fun to share my research on these products. If you’ve tried these out or have any comments, feel free to leave your thoughts below. I won’t say which ones are the strange ones and which ones are just useful to have around. You can decide for yourself!
Poo-Pourri – I noticed this product in gift shops around where I live and had to giggle and point it out to my shopping companions. The concept is actually pretty smart, even if people won’t admit to buying it. My husband was kind enough to try this product out and says it should be available at his office, for some of his coworkers. Why use Febreeze when you’ve got Poo-Pourri? Plus, it is quite funny to say the product name. Live in a dorm? Have a IBS? Sharing a hotel room with people or have to make a pit stop at the airport? Do those around you a favor, get some Poo-Pourri!

Go Girl – A few months ago a friend sent me a link to an Australian commercial hawking a similar product. It helps gals stand up to pee. I’m a country girl and have no qualms with squatting behind a bush, but I do know that I always wonder if something is going to bite my behind. Maybe I should try this product out, strange as it seems. I’m thinking it is a popular item because the company was out of samples each time I came across their reps at Blogher09.
Company Description: Simply put, GoGirl is the way to stand up to crowded, disgusting, distant or non-existent bathrooms. It’s a female urination device (sometimes called a FUD) that allows you to urinate while standing up. It’s neat. It’s discreet. It’s hygienic.
Wine Wipes – I like my wine. This is a perfect red wine lover’s item that comes in a small little tin.
Company Description: Wine Wipes remove the unattractive dark film red wine leaves on teeth and mouth with a proprietary blend of stain removing and teeth protecting ingredients without interfering with wine tasting.
TuGo – This would be a really good product to have if I wasn’t already a fan of my backpack. If I end up bringing another bag, I suck up the fee and check it because I refuse to torture myself by navigating an airport loaded down. However, I did test this item out by attaching it to my rolling bag and walking around the house and down the driveway with it. My neighbors may think I’m a bit strange, but I didn’t spill a drop of my Community Coffee.
Company Description: The tugo is a cup holder that keeps your drink suspended between the upright handles of your rolling bag. Its unique design keeps your cup level to prevent sloshing. Easily attached and removed, tugo collapses to fit in any pocket of your carry-on luggage.
Tide To Go Mini – I’m clumsy and spastic and anything I eat ends up on top of the girls. That’s one of the downsides of having a chest. Fortunately this pocket sized product is handy when traveling,
Company Description: Save the moment with Tide to Go, the instant stain remover that helps eliminate some of your toughest fresh food and drink stains. Best of all, Tide to Go travels easily to stop stains on the spot.
