Wrinkle-Free Packing

Eagle Creek Pack-It Folder

With the busiest travel day of the year approaching, I am almost certain that packing is on your mind.  You might be asking yourself, “can I make it all fit in one bag?,” or “how can I avoid everything getting wrinkled?”

Here are a couple of tricks that I always recommend to help maximize the space in your luggage and help prevent those pesky wrinkles.

  • Always put your heavier items on the bottom of your luggage; items such as jeans, bulky sweaters and footwear.  Keeping each layer lighter than the layer below it will help prevent creasing.
  • Utilize travel accessories such as the Eagle Creek Pack-It Folder – this item helps your tops stay wrinkle-free by keeping them neatly folded and secure so they don’t shift around during your travels.  It also makes it easy to access your clothing and keep it neat during the stay at your destination.
  • Roll items such as t-shirts, sweaters, undergarments and jeans.  This will not only help you maximize your space, but it will also help minimize wrinkles.  Placing a sheet of heavy tissue paper, plastic or packing paper before you roll will take your wrinkle prevention one step further.
  • If traveling with a garment bag, keep your items lined with the plastic from the dry cleaners.  The plastic will help prevent wrinkling.

I hope these quick tips help you arrive neatly pressed at your destination this holiday with everything you need.

  1. Thanks for the tips. Do not care for the Eagle Creek Pack-It Folder. Bought it this summer and it does not work as well as expected. It does not hold as many items as it claims, either. You are better off to follow the other tips above and skip the EC Pack-It.

    1. Thanks for the input Dawn. I’m sorry to hear that you had trouble with the Eagle Creek Pack-It Folder. I’ve had mine for quite some time and have almost always had a good experience with it. The few times I didn’t usually stemmed from me trying to put too many shirts in it 🙁

      I hope that the other tips I’m posting prove to be more helpful for you! Happy Holidays!
