5 Travel Laundry Items You Need
We know that traveling and vacation time means fun and relaxation, right? But, if you need to do laundry, here are some travel laundry tips to make your laundry experience a positive one. You will get to the laundromat prepared, and ready to continue relaxing even when doing this necessary task.
1 – Laundry Bag
You will want a handy way to get your laundry from the car to the laundry mat, and a bag is multi-purpose. A laundry bag can be washed with your laundry so that it is ready to hold your clean clothes too. Plus if you add a mesh delicate bag in there it can safely store your laundry essentials.2 – Quarters
Yes, some laundromats still only take quarters. So grab a handful of them, and if you have a mini m&m case they just fit in there. Know before you go because some only take credit cards. Google your location to find out what they accept so that you are well prepared.
3 – Pods
So compact, easy and efficient. Laundry pods are a travel essential. We would recommend putting them into a ziplock bag just to avoid accidents. Remember tide pods go directly into the drum. Do not put them into the detergent cup.
4 – Fabric Softener Sheets
Easier to carry and they make your car smell great too! We highly recommend fabric softener sheets instead of liquid when traveling.
5 – A Good Book
Pack a good book, and spend your time relaxing while you wait for your laundry to finish. We know that laundromat washers and dryers are much faster than the ones at home, but they still take time. Take advantage of it and relax while you wait. We will be posting some tips soon for other things to do while you wait.
If you really don’t want to do laundry, check with the local laundromat, they may offer laundry services that will get you back to relaxing even faster.
