Who among us hasn't pitched coffee down a shirt or dripped dressing onto a lap? Welcome to your workday. To help keep any small personal hygiene emergency in check while at the office, store a small bag of travel-size toiletries and other handy odds and ends in your desk. Include items such as a needle and thread to mend an undone hem or lost button, a hairbrush or comb, deodorant or antiperspirant, adhesive bandages, a clean shirt to change into (in case of that spilled coffee), floss, toothpaste and a toothbrush.
Caught without a toothbrush? Try snacking on crunchy fruits and vegetables, such as celery or apples, which will help to clean your teeth while you chew.
