RULE #1: Don't EVER be afraid to wash clothing on a trip. Heavens! At home do you ever go two weeks without washing your underwear and socks? So why wouldn't you wash on a trip? I have found some great secrets to washing that make washing seamless while traveling. I generally use Woolite packets
(purchased with or without an international plug), but tried using a J.R. Liggetts shampoo bar
for this trip. (When traveling with a shampo bar, be certain to carry it in a soap container
that drains excess water. J.R. Liggetts is all natural and organic which means that they will disappear in a shower without protection.)
International plug can be found when purchasing the Woolite packets.
Dry time? The top was fantastic! The capri pants took a little longer than overnight.
RULE #2: Wear your pants and shirts for more than one day. My general rule of thumb is 4 days per pants and 2 days per top.
RULE #3: Travel with underwear and socks that contain material that dries quickly. I wore my merino wool Darn Tough socks
to work out in and honestly didn't even have to hand wash them. No smell. Dries overnight AND kept my foot dry. And did you know they are warrantied for life against holes? Seriously the best sock to ever wear!
RULE #4: I wrung out excess water with my microfiber towel
to speed up the drying time. This towel was also fabulous to use as a beach towel or for around town.
RULE #5: Cruise ships offer a laundry line to hang up items. Laundry lines
are compact and don't take up much room to just store in your carry-on for those unexpected encounters when washing outside of a cruise trip.
