Travelling, along with coffee, is one of life’s simple pleasures. As humans we are filled with curiosity and for some of us, travelling is one of the best things we can do when we have a few days off work. However, our luggage is limited most of the time, especially if we are travelling by train or plane.
If you are travelling for over 4 days we recommend finding a place to do your laundry, especially if you are travelling with limited clothing. Here are some tips on how to wash your clothes fast and cost-effectively.
Firstly, you must identify what type of traveler you are; are you a hotel fan or an adventure traveler that enjoys staying outdoors? As you can see there are different ways to travel around the world and each one has their own way of doing their laundry.
If you’re staying at a hotel, check through the website to see if your hotel has laundry services. Most hotels offer this service and provide all the facilities to ease your stay. Other things to consider are how long does the hotel take to wash your clothes and how frequently they pick up your laundry. This will help you organize what clothes you want to wear each day and when you should be doing your laundry.
If you travel by car this gives you the possibility to stop freely at any place you want. Look for a laundromat or other laundry services nearby. To ease the laundry process, you should always carry a small bag with Voyêtre laundry products in your car. Doing your laundry at a laundromat will just take a couple hours and soon after you will be able to head off to your next destination with clean fresh clothes.
If you love nature, looking up at the stars and staying outdoors you can still find a spot to do your laundry. For this type of traveler, we suggest two options:
– Laundry camping: Camping spots usually have laundromats where you can wash your clothes whenever you want. You just need to carry your Voyêtre laundry products with you.
– Scrubba wash bag: if you’re staying in the middle of nowhere, taking a scrubba bag to your trip is your only option. However, we do suggest using it mainly for underwear, socks and small t-shirts or trousers, as it may be a bit challenging with bigger items or delicate fabrics. Ensure the detergents you use are biodegradable to avoid leaving toxic chemicals in the water or ground. Voyêtre laundry detergent offers great stain removal solutions while being gentle on the planet due to its biodegradable formula.
Backpack travellers can wash their clothes in the hostels they stay in or laundromats nearby. If you want to do your laundry at the hostel, the bathroom sink is the easiest and most effective solution to wash your clothes. Use your laundry detergent and follow the hand washing instructions, hang it in the room and let your clothes airdry. After a couple of hours, you will be ready to leave with clean fresh clothes!
