How do you do laundry while traveling?

When traveling, laundry can be a challenge and a costly affair if one were to use the laundry services offered by hotels. No doubt there are public laundry facilities readily available but I choose to avoid getting my laundry done by somebody else as I am worried of my clothes might be damaged due to the laundering process. It's difficult or even time consuming to wash my own clothes while I am away as I do not know how to wash clothes in the sink by hand. Also, if I am on vacation, I should enjoy myself instead of standing in front of the sink every night and do my laundry.

So, an alternative to washing my dirty clothes in the sink is to put them all in a laundry bag for separating them from clean ones in my luggage, and bring home to do it. That's what I usually do.

It was pink + red laundry day! Yes, I sort my laundry by color.

Thank God I have a washing machine at home!!! Smiley

Doing laundry is a tedious job which needs lots of energy and time if done by hands.

Imagine washing all these with bare hands Smiley it would totally take up much of my spare time!


Do you hand wash or machine wash your clothes?

If you really want to make your life easier, take your time to learn about the features of the latest Washing Machines, as well as read expert and user reviews. Read their washing machine buying guide too before purchasing the model which best suits your requirements. It is not just important to buy a good quality machine, but also to buy a machine suitable for your needs!

Hi Mon! :* :*

Indeed laundry can be a job in itself. I didn't have one before when living in an apartment, and that adds to the workload.

Nice photos again, Mon! ;) :)

foongpc said... @ 22/1/10 2:47 PM

Tell me about it! I hate washing clothes! Waste of time and waste of energy! Haha

foongpc said... @ 22/1/10 2:48 PM

Washing the dishes is not so bad, But washing clothes with bare hands?

foongpc said... @ 22/1/10 2:49 PM

But I still do it sometimes, most of the time I dump them into the washing machine, but certain T shirts cannot be washed in the machine, so must be hand washed. :(

foongpc said... @ 22/1/10 2:50 PM

I'm like you during holidays! If my clothes are not delicate and I don't care much, I will use the hotel laundry. Otherwise, my valuable clothes I normally keep them in a separate bag and wash them only after I return from my holidays!

foongpc said... @ 22/1/10 2:52 PM

But if I go for a 2 week holiday, it'll be too many clothes to bring so in that case, I will send some of my clothes to the hotel laundry for washing and drying.

i've a washing machine at home but i usually wash my office clothes with my bare hands.

Life Ramblings said... @ 23/1/10 5:12 PM

i want my office outfits to last as long as possible and save money at the same time, so it's worth the effort to to launder my clothes by hand.

Life Ramblings said... @ 23/1/10 5:16 PM

like you, i would stuff all my dirty clothes in the laundry bag and bring home if it's a short vakasi.
