Travel Hacks To Keep You Clean and Organized: Queen of Clean

Do you get squeamish just thinking about laying down your family's toothbrushes on a hotel bathroom countertop?  Believe me, you should.  When you travel, take along a clip style clothes pin.  They come in multiple colors so each family member can have their own. Clip your toothbrush with the clothespin and use the top part of it to create a tripod, using your toothbrush as the third leg.  It's easy to carry this, and it weighs nothing. It will keep your toothbrush sanitary and allow it to dry between brushings.  

Leave those big bottles of moisturizer, eye cream, etc. home.  Use a contact lens case to easily take the products with you.  Make sure you label.

Use an old pill bottle to carry Q-Tips.  You can see through the bottle so you always know what is in it and it is light weight and easy to use.

This is a great way to keep the neck shape of your blouses and shirts.  Simply roll the belt so that it fits in the buttoned neck of the shirt/blouse.  

Here's a great way to pack shoes in your suit case without getting dirt on other clothes. Save those cheap hotel shower caps.  Slipping your shoes inside the disposable cap will help keep the rest of your belongings clean.

If your shampoo or moisturizer has ever leaked inside your bag, you will appreciate this tip. Remove the bottle cap on shampoos, moisturizers, etc. and slide a square of plastic wrap over the bottle, screw on the cap, and you're good to go.

Keep your earrings, necklaces and rings together in an inexpensive drugstore pill-a-day organizer when you travel.

Putting dryer sheets inside shoes will keep odors away, and if you end up with static cling in something you put on, grab a dryer sheet and rub over the wrong side of the fabric to banish it.

Avoid buying overpriced bottled water at the airport. Bring an empty water bottle through security and refill it at a water fountain on the other side of the checkpoint.

Have you ever accidentally nicked yourself on an uncovered razor?  Just fasten a binder clip over the end of the razor and no nicks.

--INTERMITTENT FASTING: what is it? Not eating for small periods of time. For example Dinner ends at 7 don't eat again until 8 am or later the next morning.

-A fasting-mimicking diet combined with chemo drugs lead to an increase in tumor-killing immune cells and caused tumors to shrink 50% more than in mice that received chemo by itself.  

--Also human study of breast cancer survivors showed 36% reduction in breast cancer recurrence.
