Staying Clean While You Travel

Published Date Author: , February 4th, 2012

Travel can be a dirty activity. “Dirty” in a lot of ways, but we’ll just stick to dirt of the grainy, brown variety.

It’s pretty much expected that while traveling you’re going to have to deal with a decent amount of dirt and unsanitary conditions. Wherever you’re traveling, some places just aren’t as clean as your ultra-chic apartment in downtown Manhattan/L.A./Miami/wherever-you’re-from.

Here are some of my tips on staying clean while backpacking in less-than-hygienic regions:

1. Don’t wait until the last day to do laundry. Sometimes the hotel might have a 24-hour turnaround and if you wait till the last minute, you’ll be waiting around in your room all day for that clean pair of underwear. If you don’t have any clean underwear, just go without. And if your shirts are dirty, well, steam while you take a hot shower or spritz ’em with some cologne…and worry about it tomorrow.
