Reader Mary E. Barton Mayes shared this idea for getting clean on the road:
Here's a tip I borrowed from my husband and that I pooh-poohed at first, with regrets.
He does his own hand laundry while showering -- no painful leaning over a small basin and splashing on the counter, no worries about getting the soap/water/stain on my clothes.
And, voilà, the bath towel is still dry enough, despite a post-shower rub, to use to squeeze my hand laundry nearly dry.
A few hours, or overnight on the shower rod will make those clothes dry and clean enough to wear another day.
No searching for coin-op washer/dryer combos...no paying outrageous hotel fees for laundry. It works.
