Mission accomplished: you got laid. Bad news: you’ve just found yourself in a strange girl’s bed at 6 AM as you wake up form a drunken stupor feeling like a truck just hit your head.
Like most people, you didn’t stop at home to pick up a change of clothes and a hair brush between the club and your romantic partner’s apartment. And you smell.
Here are four hacks that will help you navigate a strange girl’s bathroom so that you can wake up refreshed-looking and ready for round two:
1. Pit stop
Wet-naps are miracles in a plastic wrapping that have multiple uses when you’re in a bind. Of course, you can use them to clean your greasy face. Alternatively, you could use them under your arms – or anywhere else on your body that might need a bit of morning freshness.
2. Wrinkly situation
It’s likely that in last night’s throws of passion you dumped your suit on the floor of whoever’s bedroom you’ve woken up in. Is there no iron on hand? Or is it just too embarrassing to ask for one? Bring your clothes into a steamy shower with you and they will look better when you stumble into the office.
3. Hair affair
Woke up with oily, dirty hair and no time for a shower? Find some baby powder in a girl’s bathroom cabinet and rub some into your wily ‘do. Huge, out of control curls can be tamed in a bind with a little hair conditioner or hand lotion rubbed in.
4. Bruise control
Love is a battlefield. If last night’s lovemaking was as exciting as you hoped it would be, you might just have a fresh bruise or hickey on you. You can treat it with common mouthwash, which will help the bruise clear up much faster and improve its offensive outward appearance. Dab some on the affected area with a cotton ball.
