Washing and “ironing” while backpacking

Posted by on April 29, 2015

We’ve got into the routine of wearing the same old 2 or 3 pairs of clothes everyday. After all, who cares & who knows us here. We’re not on a fashion parade & within 10 minutes of leaving an air conditioned room, the sweet is pouring off one in any case. Talking about air conditioning. I hate it. It messes around with sinuses, it makes one prone to colds & all kinds of respiratory sicknesses & lowers one’s tolerances for heat & temperature fluctuations. BUT, over here, one needs it. Or at least a powerful fan to stir up the hot, humid air.

One thing that the air conditioners in the hotels do well. That is, dry clothing. Somehow or other we manage to find a way of hanging the washing off the air conditioner units each night after having done the washing in the bathroom basin. Next morning, it’s fresh & dry & ready to wear again. Or, to make it easy to browse through one’s backpack, simply seal the neatly folded clothes in ziplock bags. This also helps keeping clothes less crinkled & helps to manage our clothing with virtually no effort. 🙂
