College football season is a time for tailgating, party hosting, and all things NCAA. If your husband is anything like mine, it’s been all football all the time lately. College football season also means that fall is near and I like to use each new season as a mini “fresh start.” Whether it’s spring cleaning the house, giving my wardrobe a new makeover or mixing up our routines a bit. But this season is not about me. This one is about you fellas. While your boys are out there defending their turf (and scoring you points in your college fantasy league) it’s a good time to think about how you’re taking care of your turf.

One thing I love about my husband is that his grooming standards are on point. Among the products he uses, one of my favorites is Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash. But like all good things, it’s about the total package. You can’t clean it up in the shower and then skimp on the rest of the routine. Give yourself a pit check and then check out these other awesome products to keep you fresh in the hot humidity while cheering for the Florida Gators (because you are cheering for the Gators right?!)

  • AXE Black Body Spray, 4 oz
  • Vaseline Men Healing Moisture Fast Absorbing Body and Face Lotion, 20.3 oz
  • Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash, 18 oz
  • Suave Men Ocean Charge 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner, 28 oz
  • Degree Men Adventure Deodorant, 2.7 oz

You can pick up everything you need to take care of your turf at Walmart. You can also find the supplies for these genius tailgating tips.

  1. Carry a toolbox packed with tailgate essentials like aluminum foil, barbecue brushes, tongs, plastic wear, trash bags, toothpicks, paper towels, plastic baggies, condiments and more.
  2. Keep soda, water and alcohol in separate coolers, label the coolers to make finding the beverage of your choice easier.
  3. Skip ice and freeze water bottles instead. 
  4. Bring a metal bucket to store hot coals from the grill.
  5. Use squeeze water bottles and hand sanitizer to create a hand washing station.
  6. Pack baby wipes – they’re great for clean up! 
  7. Shape burger patties the night before and pack them between sheets of wax paper, then pack them in reusable plastic containers.
  8. Pack your toppings like cheese, lettuce and tomato in plastic containers to keep them from getting smashed and for easy reseal.
