Re: [IPk] Prep wripes to take on Holiday...

Personally I'd just use any kind of wet wipe things you have, anything 
that cleans the skin will be as good as a shower (which I guess is what 
you normally do).
I wouldn't worry too much, unless you're prone to infections, in which 
case you'll be using some kind of proper prep wipe anyway I imagine. I 
changed an infusion set in the middle of a softball tournament 
yesterday, we'd been playing softball all day and I was certainly sweaty 
although not exactly covered in mud. I just took the old set out and 
stuck the new one in, beside the pitch. No big deal really.
