Travel can throw up a number of interesting challenges. From overcoming language barriers to braving local delicacies, you’re sure to find situations that test your metal. However, one thing that a lot of people don’t think about is how easy, or in fact difficult, it can be to keep your clothes clean.

Constant travel can leave you with a whole wardrobe full of dirty and sweat-stained clothing, which, depending on your budget, requires either expensive in-house cleaning services or a time-consuming trip to the local laundromat.

One easy answer, though, is to do your laundry in your hotel room with the Laundreez Portable Clothes Washer. With this handy bag, you’ll always be able to wash your clothes wherever you may find yourself, as long as you have water and detergent.

Simply put your dirty clothes inside, add water and detergent, and shake, twirl and dance around with the bag. This replicates the spin cycle of your washing machine. Then, let your clothes sit in the soapy water for about ten minutes before draining and adding clean water as a rinse. The watertight bag is portable and sports a twist cap for easy adding and draining of water. When you’ve finished the washing process, hang your clothes up to dry.

The durable and robust bag can also be used for a number of other purposes. As it holds up to 6 litres of liquid, it can become a handy water carrier. Other uses include a packing bag, cooler bag and even as a dry bag for protecting your belongings when you’re in wet conditions. The watertight seal folds over to produce a handle for the bag, so carrying your belongings is never a problem.

You can even use this portable washer at home. Where washing machines can only do a fixed load size, this bag can change its size to fit the amount of washing that’s put inside, saving you water and power. The fact it’s hand powered also makes it better for cleaning delicate items as you won’t have to worry about damaging them.

And remember, over the course of time, the Laundreez Portable Clothes Washer is going to pay for itself. Every time you don’t have to fork out for cleaning fees or laundromat costs, the do-it-yourself laundry system is saving you money and more than justifying its budget-friendly $30 dollar. It’s especially especially cost effective for those on extended business trips, people on camping trips or anyone traveling for a long period of time.

Say goodbye to a bag full of stinky, lived-in clothes, and say hello to fresh smelling options wherever you find yourself.
