Summer is here already, which means it’s time to pack your suitcase and head out on a new adventure. Most people love planning outfits for a vacation.
There’s something about picking out our most expensive and cherished items from the wardrobe and narrowing down the selection after struggling to decide for hours which clothes to keep and which ones to leave behind, that makes us so happy…
Packing can be fun – but it can also be a nightmare. Especially when you reach your destination after a long flight, only to find your expensive clothes in a tangled, creased mess.
There’re only few things that are more embarrassing than showing up at an important meeting or a special occasion in wrinkly clothes. Which is why we are sharing our favorite travel hacks to keep your outfits crease-free while you’re traveling. Because who wants to worry about ironing while they’re on a vacation?
Carry a Garment Steamer
If you’re an occasional traveller who can’t afford to crease your expensive suits and formalwear, a travel-sized garment steamer could become your new best friend.
This magical device will take up very little space in your suitcase or your carry-on. All you have to do is run it over your suits and watch the wrinkle disappear within minutes. It’s magic!
Use a Dry Cleaning Bag
If you don’t have the space in your luggage for a garment steamer, here’s another genius travel hack to keep your valuable clothes wrinkle-free; Put each garment into individual dry cleaning bags and carefully fold the bag just as you normally would while packing.
Stack the garment bags neatly in the suitcase and you’re done! The plastic wrapping will prevent your delicate clothes from rubbing against each other or getting tangled in a way that can leave a deep crease in them.
Pack a De-Wrinkling Spray
De-wrinkling spay is a life-saving scientific invention for jetset. It is literally one of the best travel hacks to keep your clothes wrinkle-free. Even while you’re vacationing and don’t have access to an iron. The best part about this voodoo-cloth magic is that it takes up very little space in your luggage.
Simply put the garment on a hanger. Then give it a generous coating with the spray, gently tugging on the creases to smooth out the fabric.
Roll, Not Fold
If you’re the kind of person who has always folded their clothes, thinking that keeping them flat in the suitcase will prevent them from wrinkling, this travel hack will change your life. Instead of folding, roll your clothes and pack them close to one another to prevent any wrinkles and deep creases.
If you want to go the extra mile, wrap each piece of garment in packing cubes so that the clothes don’t unfold and tangle with each other.
