Home Bargains is selling 79p towel-sized wet wipes for Glastonbury

Heading to Glastonbury?

We’ll be honest – you’re in for a grim few days.

All the live music and pints will be fun, sure, but you need to be prepared for a lot of mud, sweat, and tear-inducing toilets.

Fair warning: you will likely be filthy… and we doubt you’ll want to queue for the extremely limited showers.

Baby wipes are the obvious choice to feeling slightly fresher, but it’s a load of faff taking out individual wipes to clean your armpits and nether regions.

Enter towel-sized wet wipes.

These are not a new concept, to be clear. Way back in 2015 you could get a massive wet wipe designed for your entire body.

The Big Big Body Wipe, however, was only available online and cost £5.99 for a pack.

What’s new is that you can now get similar massive wipes for far cheaper from your nearest Home Bargains store. Hooray.

The wipes were brought to our attention over in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, where people rejoiced over the wipes’ potential for festivals, camping, and kids coming home all muddy.

For 79p you get two wipes, each over a metre long. If you fancy getting 48 wipes so you’ve got a proper stash for Glasto, that’ll be £18.46.

Home Bargains says the wipes are enriched with moisturiser so they don’t wreck your poor mud-soaked skin, and can ‘freshen your whole body with just one wipe’.

You just wipe yourself all over and you’re done. It’s almost like having a shower… right?

But, of course, a massive body wipe isn’t all good news.

These ones aren’t biodegradable, they’re single-use, and thus will cause a whole lot of waste and plastic pollution.

A far better option for keeping semi-clean at a festival is getting something reusable. Try a flannel – paired with water you can give yourself a quick scrub without destroying the planet.
