Gear Review: Grease Monkey Wipes

A magic eraser for grease and grime.

“It’s like an eraser for stove soot and bike grease,” our tester says of Grease Monkey Wipes. These individually wrapped, moist towelettes use a citrus oil recipe that removes gunk more effectively than the kind you get from the barbecue joint—plus, the formula’s all-natural, and its fresh, orange scent masks body odors when you use it as a backcountry sponge-bath. $12 (for 12 wipes); greasemonkeywipes.com
