There are many secrets to keeping your packed luggage to a manageable amount. One of my recent tricks has been to purchase travel underwear by Ex Officio. The underwear for both men and women is breathable, packable and lightweight. After washing in the sink or in the laundry, they will be dry within hours. I tend to wash them, squeeze them dry and then roll them in a dry towel to get the excess water out. Other undies that I have brought with me on our trips have taken quite a while to dry but not these by Ex Officio. They come in many styles and sizes. I found my underwear at my local wilderness store though you can mail order from some of your favorite travel stores.
To cut down on all the liquids that I bring on trips with me I use Campsuds. This unique product, that I first learned about when we went camping, can be used for a myriad of purposes. Believe it or not, you can use a few drops to wash your undies in,. You can also wash dishes with it, as well as your body and hair. It is a natural, biodegradable cleaner. For those who want to pack it in your carry-on luggage, it does come in a 2 oz size. For those who want to pack it, it does come in larger sizes as well. I bought this from my local wilderness store as well though some have told me that WalMart sells it as well. Personally, I prefer to shop at my local mom and pop stores and support the local businesses.
