Clothing and Accessories Travel Hacks

Here are some hacks that you may want to try. Some you may not want to try but others have found worked for them. Whether you pack a lot of clothing or do a capsule wardrobe, these tips may help you pack or while you’re there.

Keep your clothes smelling fresh with a dryer sheet or a bar of soap in your suitcase.

Don’t arrive with creased clothing again, as you pack you can fold the tissue paper in your clothing to prevent it from getting wrinkled – in particular outfits that you want to keep nice.

Pick a scheme and stick to it for your outfits. For example, pack only dark colours or colours in the same tone.

Pack a bag inside your bag. There are travel backpacks or drawstring bags out there, put one in your carry-on or suitcase, so you have an option when out.

You can organize your laundry by packing an extra bag to store your laundry so you can avoid clothes getting mixed up while you’re on holiday.

Use pillboxes for earrings, lockets, brooches and other small items.

Rather than folding your clothes, roll them up.

Wear magical merino wool clothes – doesn’t wrinkle and keeps you warm when it’s cold and cold when it’s warm. Merino has its downsides—the need to wash with care, the cost, and that it doesn’t dry as fast as synthetic fabrics—but its benefits far outweigh them.

If an item can’t survive being worn for multiple days in a row then being washed in a sink, bathtub, crappy laundry room, it can be left behind.

Fit in with your outfits.

Pack the right shoes.

Wear your normal clothes.

Colour coordinate your outfits.

Don’t roll your clothes. Pack less and pack wrinkle-free. (Can be seen counter-productive with a previous point, but everyone is different)

Try to avoid bulky clothing. Rather, try layering and pick your fabrics wisely too. Things like flannel are light but great at retaining heat. You can also find lighter cardigans that will keep you snuggly, especially when combined with a lighter waterproof jacket.
