For many of us, laundry is always a hassle; however, this hassle can become even more inconvenient when you’re trying to enjoy the comfort of vacation and away from home. Fortunately, with a bit of planning and preparation, you can enjoy your vacation, minimize the amount of time you spend doing laundry and still have fresh clothes to wear. So, here are some laundry tips to consider prior to your next vacation.
Bring Laundry Bags
Until you have the opportunity to wash your dirty clothes, reusable laundry bags are an excellent way of separating the dirty clothes from those that are clean.
Find a Local Laundromat
If you’re on a long trip and have a large amount of dirty laundry or are travelling in a group and have the dirty laundry of multiple individuals, a laundromat is very useful. Laundromats give you access to multiple washing and drying machines and tend to be a very cost-effective way to clean your wardrobe.
And if you’re not interested in sitting around a laundromat on vacation, many laundromats offer drop-off laundry services. This allows you to continue on with your daily activities while your laundry is completed.
Pack outfits that can be mixed and matched and worn in various weather conditions. This planning helps you get more than one wash out of your clothes and prevents you from having to do laundry as often.
Packing light also leaves you with more space to pack additional pairs of the items you won’t want to wear more than once, like socks and underwear.
Take Clothing Material Into Consideration
Also, pack clothes made from materials that are easiest to wash. For instance, avoid packing clothes that need a gentle cycle or where the colours run. Laundry becomes much easier when clothes don’t need to be separated into different loads and can all get thrown in together.
