One of my favorite parts of summer is the long, warm, busy days. My schedule includes a lot of stopping and restarting during the school year, but summer vacation allows me the freedom and flexibility to go nonstop from dawn to dusk – and back to dawn again.
I totally love that type of freedom! My summer physical activity is on a heightened level all summer long! I stay on the go from the moment of my early morning workout straight through the evening food truck and music festivals in the park. Sometimes I plan ahead and pack a change of clothes to carry with me, but other times I opt to stay in my workout wardrobe all day long since it’s more convenient and comfortable.
Those are three of the things that summertime is all about for me: freedom, convenience, and comfort. And my number one goal each day is to enjoy those three things as much as possible. Although I love summer, I am not overly fond of the extreme heat and humidity that comes along with it here in the Midwest! The feeling of being sweaty or downright uncomfortable in your clothes during any type of summer physical activity can truly make for an unpleasant day while out and about.
Whether I am taking a morning jog in the park or lifting weights at the gym, or even dancing the night away at a neighborhood summer concert series, I want to feel fresh, clean, and most of all, comfortable. I never want to be distracted from enjoying any moment of summer because of the inability to have the freedom and convenience of feeling my ultimate best. So on days when I know I may not see my home for hours on end, there are essentials that I make sure to pack in my day bag to have on hand at all times in order to stay feeling comfortable all day (and night) long.
Along with items like dry shampoo, deodorant, and hairpins to keep my hair intact, another ‘must have’ for me is Cottonelle® flushable cleansing cloths. These wonderful little wipes are simple to use anytime and anywhere while I am on the go. Since I have used Cottonelle® Clean Care toilet tissue in my home for many years, I love that I can now have the clean, fresh, and comfortable, feeling that I have grown to love and have trusted for so long inside of the house – outside.
Cottonelle® CleanRipple Texture gives you the clean confidence to rock any situation from yoga class to festival fashion to red carpet ready. In fact, Cottonelle® flushable cleansing cloths work so incredibly well that I even feel clean and confident enough to ‘go commando’ on those days when the heat and humidity of the weather here becomes too much. -Now that’s what I call ultimate comfort and freedom!
Balancing summer physical activity between my own daily ‘to-do’ list and the fun events of summer is something that I look forward to each and every year! Exercise meetups in the park, sunrise yoga workouts, carnivals with the kids, the plethora of health walks and summer festivals, outdoor music concerts, summer family vacation travel – it’s all a part of what makes summer great to me! In all that I have planned to do (and even the unplanned), I can rest assured that I’ll be equipped with the freedom and confidence to handle everything that life throws at me this summer thanks to the convenience of feeling my best with Cottonelle® products. It definitely does not get any better!

Let’s face it, underwear is the last thing you need standing in the way of you and nailing that inversion or setting a new personal record. Cottonelle® CleanRipple Texture is a proprietary innovation on all Cottonelle® toilet paper and flushable cleansing cloths that is designed to clean better (than the leading value brand).
