Adventure travel is about seeing exotic places, doing exciting things, and pushing the limits. But what about those things that no one talks about... like after a long day of adventure, having to hand wash your clothes. These are some of my tips. Or... how to wash and dry your clothes when traveling.
First, it helps to travel with quick dry clothing made of polyester or wool. In many countries small packets of soap or washing detergent can be bought. But if none is easily available I simply use shampoo or a bar of soap. I often travel with a flat round sink stopper that helps trap the water in the sink.
To dry wet shoes or boots, avoid placing them near a heat source, this will deteriorate your shoes. Instead, place old newspaper inside your shoes and turn them upside down. The newspaper will wick the moisture from your shoes and will allow them to dry quicker.
Isn't adventure travel exciting!?!
