Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Mary G., who builds on last Friday’s reader laundry tip:
“I know a travel writer that showers in her clothes—soaping up then rinses. Removes to hang up. I’m assuming she then re-rinses herself.
My trick is to pack one of those extra large space bags that you seal shut (not with a vacuum cleaner). Carry some Tide or other laundry pods. Fill the bag with warm water in sink or tub add pod swish around to dissolve and add clothes, swish, then dispose of soapy water and refill with clean to rinse several times. Dry bag and use it for dirty laundry until the next time.
If you carry the laundry soap pods and still use a pay laundromat it will save you some money and it’s better quality soap.”
That’s one way to do it. Better yet is the Scrubba bag, the latest version of which I featured last week. It’s like a cheap, portable washing machine. Thanks, Mary!
