Hey Cruisers, it’s Sheri with CruiseTipsTV
with some more packing tips! Frankly; packing isn’t my favorite part
of cruising. Me, I just want to get it done. Grab everything I need, toss it in the bag,
and boom! I’m done. But … yeah, that method comes with a few … wrinklely consequences.
So today we are going to look at, and compare, two less wrinkley methods; folding and rolling.
Now, here’s a little tease; in our next packing episode we are going to look at a
third cutting edge packing method. (What?! A third method? – I know, right.) So stick
around, and we’ll let know what that’s all about. Now, let’s cover some basics. Lets starting
with rolling. Rolling works well for:
Packing a duffel, backpack, tote or similar soft bag
Using all available bag space – rolled clothes are just easier to CRAM into nooks and crannies.
And for Clothes that don’t wrinkle easily – like knits, jeans, t-shirts etc’ Rolling supposedly leaves less creases, but
in our experience rolling can turn some clothes into to wrinklely little nightmares. Now we
know there is a technique for rolling clothes, that when strictly followed can eliminate
or minimize wrinkles, but really …. I mean really. I’m not going to do that.
We typically reserve rolling for tanks, T’s, and smaller items like socks. You can roll
these things up and just MASH them in anywhere. Now lets move on to folding.
Folding works well for: Your good old hard-sided, shell or structured
suitcase. Rayon, silk, linen, or basically anything
that wrinkles easily and, Elegant night gear – Dress shirts, pants,
skirts etc’ Folding is the tried and true traditional
method, and typically works well. If you take the time to fold at the creases, you’ll
likely still get wrinkles, but they’ll be in places people expect to see them … if
that makes sense. Ultimately, we’ve found a combination of
both methods seems to fit our style the best! For us, it just comes down to what gets folded
and what gets rolled. So now, what was this “third method” stuff
all about? In our next packing episode we’re going to take a look at something called “Bundle
Wrapping.” Sounds fun right? Well, no not to us either, but we’ll try to make it fun.
