Travel tip: Showering with your clothes is an easy way to do laundry

Travel tip: Showering with your clothes is an easy way to do laundry
Just add clothing: You can do hand laundry while you're showering. You won't slop water out of the basin as you might if you were doing skivvies in the sink. (Sozialutopist/Wikimedia Commons)

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.
