Hotels are great. They have specialists to make your bed for you, bacon for breakfast, and free slippers. What they don't have, however, is sufficiently lathering shower gel. Time and time again when I visit a hotel and opt to use the in room soaps, I am shocked by the absolute lack of potency in the liquid bath soap.
The natural cure to this is to use a loofah or pouf. Here lies the catch-22, though. If you're concerned enough about space to not bring your own soap, or just don't want to have to worry about it, you're definitely not going to be able to fit or remember the fully blown, full sized shower accessory that hotel soap necessitates.
In my fight against this problem, I could only come to one logical solution: a smaller pouf. Spurred by the Unusual Uses Bathroom Contest, I developed such a product. Made from all bathroom materials, the Travel Pouf provides dirty travelers with the lather they need and expect at a hotel.
Some might argue that hotels deliberately provide you with a smaller cloth intended for washing, but for many, like myself, the washcloth just doesn't have the same handling and lather-control as a good pouf.

This mini-pouf is also is wonderful as a facial exfoliator. Some of the exfoliation tools sold in stores are super abrasive, and the normal poufs are rather large to use on your face. Try it!

Step 1: Tools & Materials

  • 10 Inch square piece of mesh (Can be obtained from old, full sized pouf)
  • 2 feet of dental floss
  • De-greaser of choice (Optional)
  • Scissors or Knife
  • Measuring tape
