Roll your items, do not fold.
Keep in mind cottons will crease more than man-made materials when packing. Make sure you take a variety of layers. One tank, one tee, one light sweater, etc.Cut down on items by only packing solid colors. These are easier to mix and match and therefore you wont need as many items.
RE locks: Locking your case? Make sure you lock is TSA compatible so they can open it if they must. These days, it is common to cut off any lock that they cannot search.
REMOVE OLD CLAIM CHECKS
Don’t hesitate to ship something ahead of time or back home. Don’t haul around needless items, if you accidentally brought them!
Going somewhere warm? Take clothes that breath, such as cottons and linens. The natural fibers allow air in, so you stay cool. As great as they are, there’s just one catch to wearing natural materials…they tend to become wrinkled when sitting in a suitcase for hours. Here’s a new twist on an old remedy.
Hang the clothing you want to wear in the bathroom while you shower. The steam will naturally loosen the cloth's fibers and smooth out some wrinkles. After your shower, spray your clothes with a product, like Downy Wrinkle Releaser. It now comes in a Travel Size which you can purchase at Target and run your clean hand over the article of clothing. This will take out the remaining wrinkles while adding a fresh just-pressed scent to your clothes.
Now its time to go have fun! Happy travels!
