As the holiday season approaches thoughts turn to packing and how to best pack so that you can take the least amount with you. This requires some tips and tricks, so here we show you how to pack a suitcase so your clothes don’t arrive at your destination full of creases..
According to The Express, more Britons than ever are holidaying abroad. Increasing charges for checked-in bags mean that you need to be better about packing so you can get all of your things into carry-on luggage.
Using plastic bags
Zip-top plastic bags are great for when you are going on holiday. You can use them for shoes and toiletries as well as for dirty washing. Using plastic bags to pack clothes that need to be hung up is also useful as they should arrive wrinkle-free.
You should aim to fold items into squares, as per many high street retailers. This is the best way to fold shirts, including mens Farah shirts, such as those from http://ejmenswear.com/brands/farah. You need to make sure all the buttons are done up and you are using a flat surface. It is also the perfect way to fold jumpers.
Packing your smalls
Socks should be packed into shoes or used to fill gaps in your suitcase, while underwear should be put in mesh bags so it can be clearly seen if anyone needs to inspect your bag.
Rolling items such as t shirts and jeans can be a good way to ensure items arrive at your holiday destination free from creases. Rolling items also means that they take up less space in your suitcase.
Packing the case
The best way to pack the case is to use a combination of all of the above techniques which should allow you to maximise the amount of space in your suitcase. There is no need to pack items such as travel irons and hairdryers as most hotels provide these, so restrict your suitcase to clothes, accessories and toiletries. Toiletries should be at the bottom of the bag with folded clothes down the middle. The remaining clothes, shoes and socks, should be used to fill the spaces.
So now you should be well on your way to arriving on holiday with clothes that are free from creases.
