Chances are after you have spent most of the day traveling to your destination, the last thing you want to do is open up your luggage to discover everything is all crumpled up. If everything gets wrinkled in transit that means you either have to wear wrinkled clothing, run the shower very hot hoping the wrinkles come out from the steam of the shower or search high and low for an iron so you can iron everything out. To help reduce the wrinkles you find in your clothing here are some tips to help you efficiently and effectively pack your suitcase:
You can purchase dividers, or packing cubes, to use in your suitcase. These will help items from shifting in your suitcase, which will also help reduce the amount of wrinkles your clothing get. There are a variety of different options available online and at luggage stores.
Folding vs. rolling
Instead of folding and packing your clothes in the suitcase try rolling your items. This will not only help reduce the amount of creases and wrinkles in your clothes, it can also help you fit more items in your suitcases. The best way to do this is to fold the item in half (or thirds) and then starting at one side, roll it up.
Dry cleaning bags
Dry cleaning bags are designed to help prevent clothing from rubbing against one another, which helps reduce wrinkles. Instead of throwing those bags away, save them and keep them stored away in your luggage at home. Then when it comes time to travel, use these bags in between layers of clothing packed in the suitcase. It will help reduce how much the clothing rubs against one another, thus helping keep the amount of wrinkles to a minimum.
Use tissue paper wrapped around delicates to help reduce wrinkles. The best way to handle these items are to fold them and then wrap tissue paper around it. Then securely pack these items in a packing cube or in a zippered compartment of the suitcase.
There are wrinkle releaser sprays available and can be used to get out minor wrinkles in clothing. Pack a travel size bottle with you. When you arrive to your hotel room take all of your clothes out right away and give a light spray of the wrinkle releaser. Keep clothes hung up until you wear them.
Hopefully these tips help you keep your luggage organized and your clothes wrinkle-free. Carefully packing your clothing will help reduce the wrinkles you find when you unpack your luggage. This will give you more time to start your vacation right away.
