Travel– we all miss traveling after being locked up in our houses due to the pandemic. But with the ongoing vaccination, there’s hope that we can travel to our favorite destination this year! You might be planning a week-long trip, or even longer. But, how will you pack your gram-worthy outfits and essentials?
Do you have to bring your wardrobe? I bet that would be heavy and costly on your part. You have to compromise to enjoy your extended stay. Pack light and do your laundry while on travel. Is it possible to do laundry on the trip?
Yes, it is! You can do laundry while on travel. Everything is possible if you know how and where.
How to do laundry while on travel?
You do not have to carry a large suitcase for your week-long travel. Keeping your laundry in your luggage will only give unpleasant odors and dead weight. Here are some tips on how you can do your laundry while on travel.
Wash clothes in the hotel room’s sink or bathtub.
If you don’t want to spend a dime on laundry services, hand washing your clothes in your hotel’s sink or bathtub is the best option. Using the bathtub or sink is not a big deal; make sure to clean them first before placing your laundry.
Most travelers who do this trick bring their drain stopper and buy their laundry essentials at their destination. Do not carry a laundry detergent that will only take up space in your luggage. When washing your clothes in your hotel room’s bathroom, ensure that you will not make any mess. Anticipate that the clothes will take longer to dry.
Book for hotel laundry service.
While washing your laundry in your hotel room’s sink or bathe tub is simple and easy, you might not have the time to do so. Call the front desk of your hotel and ask whether they offer laundry services. Most hotels have laundry services in their list of amenities. However, do not easily assume, some might not have the service you are looking for.
Booking a hotel laundry service will allow you to maximize your time to roam around and fulfill your travel bucket list. However, ready yourself as hotel laundry service fees are expensive. Expect that their rate is per piece. If you find their service rate expensive, you have two other options left.
Rent an Airbnb with a laundry room.
If you do not want to hand wash your laundry nor pay an expensive laundry service rate, renting an Airbnb with a laundry room is the best option. You will only pay the rent of the place. Although you are still doing laundry by yourself, the turnaround time is faster than hand washing your clothes.
Do not forget to bring your laundry essentials. Although some owners will leave some for you to consume, it’s best to be ready.
Stop by a laundromat.
If you do not want to waste time washing your clothes yet find hotel laundry service expensive, stopping by a laundromat near you is the best option. A trip to the laundromat before visiting the next destination saves time and a few dollars.
You can plan this option to research which laundromat you should drop off your laundry. Determine the nearest laundry shop or if there’s one around the neighborhood that offers laundry pickup and delivery.
These are some of the ways you can do laundry on travel. Are you planning to travel this year? Why not try doing laundry on travel? You can do it on your trip when the restrictions are lifted. Travel light, do laundry on travel.
