I’m actually a two bagger (don’t kill me!). However that is everything I own. My main bag is a Tortuga Air. I would love to go fully one bag, but I have a CPAP that takes up a bit of room. I also have a Tom Binh Synapse 25 (I just got it, before that I was using a Timbuk2 messenger bag as my personal item). I switched to the Synapse because When I have to carry around both for a while having my heavy gear bag around my neck caused an incredibly sore neck. I needed something with real straps.

Tortuga Air

First I’ll deal with the Tortuga. I love that bag. I’ve been using it for about 1.5 years now and it looks almost the same as when I bought it. I’ve wanted to get a new bag, but I can’t justify replacing it while it’s going so well. Their are tons of in-depth reviews of the Tortuga that will go more in depth then anything I’ll do, but I’ll go over it a bit. I love that it lays completely flat when open and that it has compression straps inside the main compartment as well as the outside. The half mesh zip side of the bag is also nice for separating out smaller things if you aren’t using packing cubes. The mesh is surprisingly strong too. I put my CPAP in that mesh area for the past year and it hasn’t ripped through. Just be sure not to put anything pointy in there (like power cables). It holds as much as you really need.

The only stuff that annoys me about it is that the smaller front compartment can get squished out if you put too much stuff in the mesh compartment. This is probably not an issue for most people, but my CPAP makes the bottom part of the front pocket pretty unusable. Although I managed to put my big li-ion battery in there (20,000 mah). The “Water bottle” pocket isn’t big enough for my water bottle, however I don’t really use the bag for stuff like that. I keep a deck of cards (plastic) and my head torch (Petzl) in that pocket. Always ready for the dark or a good drinking game.

Tom Binh Synapse 25

Like I said earlier I just got this a week or two ago. I got it with the padded hip belt, and the Freudian Slip. The Feudian Slip doesn’t look like something that I’ll use though. It takes up WAY too much room and I use quite a few pens and notebooks but it’s too much even for me. I’m replacing it with some Tom Binh stuff sacks. The hip belt was probably superfluous, but when I’m just going for a couple of weeks the Tortuga is overkill and I figured I could get by with the Synapse. My initial thoughts on the bag when I got it went something along the lines of, “DAAAAAAAAAAAAMN!” I’m very impressed with the overall worksmanship. That nylon is super durable feeling and the zippers are on point. I am pretty rough on bags and I think that this one will do me pretty good for quite a while.

I love the front pockets and the water bottle pocket, although I’m currently using that for my umbrella and have my water bottle (a collapsed Vapur Eclipse). The bottom holds my over-sized but very nice toiletry/first aid kit, and I have cables, pens, batteries, and eating utensils in the side pockets. The inside is one of my laptops, I’ll probably put my iPad in there too, my notebook, my cable/tech organizer, and a small packing cube of clothes. It’s probably a week worth of clothes if you pushed it. This is so that if my main bag got lost while traveling I wouldn’t be screwed.

I know that I could probably get by with just the Tortuga, but well I don’t feel like it and I like having a separate work bag. Also I don’t pack too many clothes. I pack too many cables. WHY do I fell the need to pack 3 cables of every type when I know that micro USB and thunderbolt cables are ubiquitous? I blame society, and my hatred of cables constantly breaking. Oh well, USB C is still pretty hard to find at convenience stores anyway.

Stuff I don’t like about it, hmm, I haven’t road tested it yet. I’m staying with family to help my brother with the baby once he’s born (hopefully today). However I hope to get it on the road in the next month or so, and do a weekend trip in a couple of weeks. The straps are pretty stiff, but I’ve read they break in really well after a little while. I wish the adjustment straps for the main straps had a clip to make them not bounce around when you’re walking. That’s minor and I’ll probably just rubber band them, or maybe make a clip out of something.

Odd Bags

I also just got a Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Day Pack which replaces the old Tortuga packable day pack I had. Don’t grab one of those by the way. Mine ended up having the bottom completely shredding along the seams after about 6-7 months. Granted I was pretty hard on it, but still. It looked like a cat had shredded it finely. No way to repair. I like having an extra bag like this for the beach, or just to grab some groceries.

I also got a Scrubba to replace my old dry bag I got in the Philippines. It allows me to wash my clothes in it very easily, and it packs down MUCH smaller than my old dry bag, although it doesn’t feel as durable. The old one was just a big bag of rubber and felt like you could throw it down a rocky hill and it would be fine. I also used it as a cooler periodically. That’s actually a pro tip for you guys. Put ice in your dry bag and some beers for the beach. BAM instant (not very effective) cooler.

I recommend making sure you have several items:

  • Hamper (foldable or collapsible is best for college students.)
  • Laundry bag (Just in case you don't want to carry your hamper to your laundry facility, or your hamper isn't carry friendly.)
  • Desk lamp (any kind should be fine, so that way if your room mate is sleeping you don't have to have the entire room lit up)
  • Power strips (you never know when you're going to need to plug something in, and you might run out of wall plugs)
  • Change jar (spare change is always useful especially when ordering food, so you can give exact change. Don't forget to tip! You can make one of these yourself for basically free minus the cost of a bottle)
  • Desk organizer (To keep your class syllabi in, as well as any returned papers. It's very easy to lose all of that stuff, and you never know if you might need it again during the semester.)
  • Flip flops/shower shoes (keep them cheap because they're only for the bathroom, chances are that bathroom will be shared by you and several others, and most likely won't be the cleanest place)
  • Healthy (ish) snack foods (whatever foods appeal to you really, but that's a start for some ideas, trust me healthy food is good, you don't want that freshman 15 to catch up to you too quick now!)
  • Alarm clock (or you can use your phone which is what I ended up doing last year, but make sure it doesn't die!)
  • Headphones (so you don't annoy your roommate with your choice of tv/music/movies/etc.) Here's three more headphones for variety, all of which are great for the price range. Klipsch, Vsonic, Sony(these Sony MDR-V6 go on sale every so often, they were literally just on sale for $54 and are absolutely fantastic for the price range)

    That's basically everything I either wish I had brought, or found very useful. Oh yeah, don't forget your cell phone, cell phone charger, laptop/desktop and appropriate cables. Also don't forget to do your laundry somewhat regularly, and that includes your sheets!

    Would you like a falafel with that?
u/MademoiselleFromage · 17 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Not OP, but I've done a lot of 3-4 week backpacking trips and used this with good results. (Although I paid $35 for it so I'd search around for a better deal than what's on Amazon right now). It's easier than washing in the sink and I feel like my clothes get cleaner.

edit: These are a perfect amount of detergent for it too

edit2: Learn from my mistake though...if you buy anything colored brand new for your trip, wash it BEFORE you go...because once you stain like all of your clothes, it's really hard to revive them in any way whatsoever without a washing machine. Dyed a load of clothes blue on one trip...didn't learn my lesson, dyed them all pink on another trip lol. But yea, this thing is awesome.

u/_PM_ME_YOUR_HOPES_ · 4 pointsr/onebagging

I'm currently coming home from a one week trip where we did a combination of hiking and staying in hotels / airbnbs. I had purchased a scrubba bag and was anxious to use it. I'm personally on board with the onebag philosophy of doing laundry every night or two so as being able to pack light.

My take on the scrubba bag is it's pretty neat. The nodules do help a little in helping break dirt off of clothes. The air bleed is nice for getting all of the air out of the bag when sealing it up, and the clear window is helpful in seeing the water get cloudy from all the dirt coming out of the clothes. While not using the scrubba I just rolled up a small bottle of non rinse detergent and a clothes line for drying,making it a somewhat simpler process since im doing it every night.

My conclusion is that for a situation like mine, where we hiked through water falls and streams, I would have rather of just brought a dry bag / day pack to use for laundry AND to use as a waterproof day pack. Also I brought a dedicated laundry clothes line when 15 ft of Paracord would have sufficed just fine and been able to use in other situations also. The laundry soap was nice because it was "non-rinseable" but I still rinsed my clothes abyways, so using the same Dr bronners I use for my hair would have worked too.

Here are some links to the products I used:

u/farfromhome9 · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

Other commenters have already given you loads of good advice so I’ll try not to duplicate what’s already been said.

I’m a woman who sweats more than average, even when not exercising. I find that shaving my armpits every day or two helps prevent my armpits from stinking, and every day after I shower I apply some “clinical strength” antiperspirant/deodorant (I like Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid, but there are a variety of brands that offer clinical strength varieties).

I try to wash my bras at least once a month but I’ve got 5 or 6 that I regularly rotate, and you may need to wash yours more often. The easiest way to wash your bras is by putting them in a lingerie bag and then putting that in your washing machine on the delicate setting. You should be able to wash your bras with other similar-colored clothing and be sure to use laundry detergent. When the bras are done washing, hang them up to air dry — drying them in the dryer will kill the elastic pretty quickly.

Even though you’ve gotten a bunch of perfumes and other scented products as gifts, my advice is to start slowly with the scents, in particular perfumes. It can be easy to go a bit overboard when applying perfumes or other scented products and pretty soon everyone can smell you from 10 feet away, and it’s not great to smell like you’ve bathed in perfume. (Ideally another person should be able to smell whatever scent you’re wearing only if they are standing very close to you, it should be subtle.) So start out with your basic hygiene (daily shower or bath, washing your hair, brushing your teeth twice daily, wearing clean clothes every day, using deodorant/antiperspirant) and then if you’d like, add some perfume or scented lotion. It might help to ask a friend for advice on whether you’re wearing the right amount of perfume or if it’s too much.

Finally, if you try all these tips and people still say that you smell bad, you should make an appointment to see your doctor. In rare cases someone smells bad because they have an underlying medical problem. Good luck to you!

u/veggiezombie1 · 3 pointsr/MomForAMinute

People are giving great advice on managing stains, so I won't add to it. What I will do is give you some other laundry-related tips:

  • Laundry/lingerie bags are your friends! They're great for washing delicate clothing like blouses and underwear. Don't overload them - 1 blouse per bag, 3 pairs of underwear/2 bras per bag.

  • Speaking of delicates, don't put delicate clothing in the dryer. Hang them to dry instead. Or, if your dryer has a gentle setting, tumble dry with no heat.

  • Don't dry your clothing on high heat unless you want it to shrink.

  • Accidentally shrink your favorite shirt or pair of pants? Not to worry! Here's a guide to help you unshrink it!

  • For soft sheets, use fabric softener in the wash and either dry on no (or very low) heat in the dryer or hang it up to dry.

  • Don't put fabric softener with the soap/detergent. Your washing machine should have a special slot for fabric softener.

  • Don't leave damp clothing in the washer or dryer for too long. It'll start to smell funny even if it's clean.

  • Don't have time to iron your shirt? Get a slightly damp washcloth and put it in the dryer with your shirt. Run the dryer for about 10-15 minutes on medium or high heat.

  • ALWAYS READ THE TAGS! Manufacturers will put wash instructions on the tags of clothing.

  • If you're a person with a period, here's a tip for you: soak period-soiled underwear in a sink or tub with freezing cold water for at least 30 minutes.
u/luxorange · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I lived for years in apartments with no laundry facilities. The one thing that helped me most was to sort clothes into loads at home before bringing them to the laundromat. I like to have separate bags for each load I will wash, one bag full of darks, one of lights, one of delicates, etc. Smaller bags are easier to carry, and having individual bags for loads makes it easy to get the washers filled and started quickly.

I like canvas laundry bags that have a draw cord like this. Clothes can't spill out when the bag is cinched shut, the bag is thick enough that I can set it on the ground without feeling like every germ is going to seep into the bag, and I can toss the bag in the washer/dryer every time. I wash the bags and dry them with my clothes so they're clean for the clean clothes to go back into. You can bring one of the laundromat's carts to your car and load all the bags into it, or get one of those push-carts like this or this.

Look inside every single machine before you use it. Nothing ruins a load of white clothing like an eyeliner pencil someone left in the dryer (RIP, favorite white shirt). Or some sticky gum, or any of the other goo that gets left behind.

On this note, in terms of choosing a laundromat -- some are better taken care of and have staff that checks and maintains machines frequently; some are pretty neglected. If you have a choice in where you go, I would look for one in good repair that doesn't have a floor full of spills and tons of out-of-order machines.

u/DeyCallMeTater · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

The lipstick thingy is: 22.5 x 12.5 x 8 cm
And each box will be: 16.5 x 16.5 x 16.5 cm

So one solo box wouldn't do it, but definitely two side by side will. The acrylic tray I have is bigger than the one I linked you so I can't be 100% BUT even it fits atop two of the boxes side by side. It does hang a bit over the side, but it's really not all that bad. I have since moved it though because having it stack on top of my drawers was getting too ridiculous height wise. But when I only had 2 drawers, it was more than enough. As I mentioned, I now do 4 drawers total in a 2x2 formation.

Another option is to get the set like this. These are designed for each other whereas technically the ones I mentioned initially are from two different manufacturers.

And if you think she might need a bit more...you can just buy an extra set of the drawers for her to place to the side.

I can only speak to what the interdesign drawers can hold, but they're large enough to hold 15-20 tubes of mascara and depending on the size of her lipstick/lipgloss....ditto for that too. I can place about 6 or 7 compacts inside a drawer or like 10ish tubes of primer. I recognize this is all Greek to you lol but yea. She might be able to have enough space with just this in the 3 drawers with top section option and MAYBE one of the Interdesign drawers. I suspect that if she can fit most of her stuff in just a couple of makeup bags....this will be more than enough space. Unless she has massive eyeshadow palettes. In which case, she might like something like this to store them upright on a desk or something.

I plan on tidying up today...so if it's clean, I'll try to remember to snap a picture for you in case you're more of a visual person lol.

u/Enxer · 1 pointr/Parenting

This one saved us a ton of money-Never buy new clothing for the first 2-3 years. Find a second hand shop or if possible find family members that have children just a bit older than yours but that align around the same season for their birthday.

Don't buy much new born clothes. As the name implies they are not new born for long and can grow right out of them and into 1-3 month old cloths.

Burp cloths - We have ones that look practically transparent but absorb all spit ups and messes. We also use cloth diapers for burp cloths which worked really, really well.

u/Sonoratexana · 76 pointsr/DeTrashed

A friend gave me an idea for using some kind of netted-bag so that trash like bottles, cans, and other water-holding material can drain through the spaces while walking around. Some of the great things about this:

  1. Reduces the weight of the bag by draining liquids.
  2. Bag doesn't whip around so wildly on a windy day.
  3. Easy to clean and reuse (soak in a bucket with a small amount of soap.)
  4. Helps passerby visualize the kind of trash that is spoiling the area.
  5. Relatively cheap. Got a pack of three of these from Amazon for $13.

    Hope this helps someone who de-litters in a wet/rainy environment!

u/ToesInHiding · 2 pointsr/Rowing

Three options TO WASH:

  1. wash it alone on delicate cycle.
  2. wash it by hand. Woolite makes excellent delicate detergent. Rinse it really well and then very gently squeeze the water out — be careful to avoid squeezing where the logos are.
  3. wash it in a delicates bag like these with other workout clothes of similar colors. Warm cycle only. Never hot water.

    TO DRY:
    Lay flat. I really like these for sweaters, unis, and other things that should dry flat so as to avoid stretching the shoulders in weird ways.

    r/CleaningTips/ sub is also a good resource for laundry quandaries :)
u/ZosiaQ · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Hi! I know you've gotten a lot of great replies but I figured one more couldn't hurt.

I soak my things (undies and bras) in a plastic tub I got at Bed, Bath, & Beyond with cool water and a little laundry detergent. If I'm in a hurry, I throw my bras in a bra bag similar to this and toss it in the laundry. I think I got mine at The Container Store. I always clip/hook my bras when I wash them because I found otherwise, the hooks can get caught on lace. I have also washed delicates in pillow cases before (throw lacey dress, bras, undies, whatever in pillow case, knot it shut, and toss in wash), but I prefer the bra bag because it's more structured.

I don't think (I hope!) your roommates will mind you washing your bras, especially since you're not taking up a sink. Some dorm laundry rooms also have sinks, so you could potentially wash them down there (maybe soak in your room and bring them downstairs to wash).

Here is a helpful article about bra washing and some specific lingerie washes.

I have used a salad spinner to help dry my bras. I'd recommend, if possible, laying them out to dry on your desk or dresser, just so that they're flat. Or if you have a drying rack--but I'd avoid hanging them.

u/BefWithAnF · 2 pointsr/AskNYC

Alternately, I have one of these which I snagged for half off when Gracious Home was going out of business. It works pretty well & is like a glorified salad spinner. I don’t think you could put more than a pair of jeans & a shirt in there, though, so perhaps that other one will be better for you.

u/DangReadingRabbit · 1 pointr/crochet

My new beloved, rescued, adorable cat, will NOT leave my yarn alone when I crochet or knit. He attacks it and pounces in it, kicks it, and runs away with it. He’s more addicted to yarn than I am.

So I needed a solution.

Enter some cheap mesh laundry bags — I got a whole set of them on amazon and they’ve worked out well. I can keep a few balls of yarn inside, and most importantly, I keep my working yarn inside to prevent kitty attack’s. I just zip it mostly closed and let the working string of yarn come out the remaining opening.

Do you have tips to keep your yarn and project safe from a rambunctious kitty?

u/PriyaAvaani · 7 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Hey there,

Just wanted to say that I used to wash my bras by hand but lately have been using another method since it saves me time and also maintains the integrity of my bras. What I do is buy a bra bag. The important thing is not to buy a "garment" bag but rather this. It helps a lot with keeping the shape of the bras. I wash my bras in my washing machine in the "Gentle" cycle and make sure they're only being washed with other delicate clothing. I don't overwhelm the machine with any other heavier pieces of clothes. I'll use whichever detergent I have on hand. Once the bras are finished washing, I take them out from the bag and let them air dry. This method lets me get the agitation that I need to remove the deodorant build up and makes the bras feel a hell of a lot cleaner. Air drying allows them to keep their good shape!

Let me know if you try this and how it works out for you.

u/pajamapolice · 7 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I fly a good amount for work, and combined with 'fun' travel, that ends up being 1-2x a month.

I almost never check a bag, unless I'm staying somewhere for more than 2 weeks or schlepping stuff for another purpose (i.e. visiting my mom who can't get 2937403 things she wants where she lives).

My personal item: Marc Jacobs backpack
Not the most glamorous, but I'm weak and I feel my laptop is hard on my shoulder with a tote style bag, so backpack it is. I appreciate that this has 2 exterior pockets, one being large enough for my passport case, boarding passes, etc that I want easy access to. The nylon material wipes clean and isn't showing any wear after ~20 trips and being used a couple times a week to bring my laptop/lunch to and from work.

My carry-on suitcase: Bric's Bellagio
If I had purchased this for $550, I would be mad, but I got it at an outlet and it was around $200 which lessens the sting a little bit. I will admit, my vanity got to me here and I bought it mostly because I love the retro-ish look. It's a perfectly decent suitcase for the casual traveler (3-5x a year), fits international overhead compartments, and has handy dividers inside, but I've beaten this thing to shit. I drag it over a lot of uneven pavement in questionable weather, throw it around a lot, and it's just looking a bit sad and worn.

My check-in suitecase: Muji 62L Suitcase
Love this clean-lined and light suitcase. I have zero muscles, so not having an extra heavy suitcase plus all the shit I'm hauling is important to me. I don't check in bags often, and this has gotten way less use than my Bric's but it's holding up nicely so far. And at this price point, I don't feel too precious about it being banged about in transit.

Other misc stuff:

  • Laundry mesh bags (I think I have these, but really any will do)
    I do not use travel cubes because I don't feel that they are flexible enough in terms of size, they take up more space when not in use,and I also don't like accumulating more 'stuff' that is single purpose. The best part about laundry mesh bags is that I have less sorting to do after my trip and the delicate stuff can go right into the washer.
  • Muji travel containers
    I die for these. I used to be so cheap and store all my face stuff in contact lens cases or repurposed empty sample containers and then have to open everything to find something if I forgot what held what. These have changed my travel life, and it makes me so happy to have neatly organized products that all 'go' together and are reliably water tight.
  • Toiletry bag/Liquids bag
    Still super cheap here, I use ziplock baggies. Some European airports I go through force you to take your liquids out of your kit and put them in a ziplock they give you anyway, and I'd rather not deal with that. I keep thinking that in order to be a serious, adult, 'business' traveler I should have a real dopp kit/toiletry bag but......here I am.
  • Sheet masks
    I keep 1-2 always in my suitcase, just so I know I have a pick me up if I need one. I don't always use them, and my current ones have been in there for maybe 4 months but it's nice to know they're there if I'm having a particularly bad or just dehydrated day.
  • Also, I always pack a few plastic bags for whatever. Maybe I want to compartmentalize further, or I have extra dirty or wet clothes/shoes, or I buy something liquid in a dubious container, these can be life savers.
u/cornelln · 1 pointr/Outlier

I wash all my delicates and wool in garment bags. I have top loading washer so this helps protect them a bit from thrashing. But also it's very easy to identify the stuff I wish to lay flat or hand dry - because it's in a bag. So I just do all my sorting into bags before I wash. Easy to never accidentally dry something that way.

It's nice to meet you! I also spend a lot of time on /r/cats so I will look for you from now on! What kinds of pets do you have yourself? I have a cat and his name is Ezra. He's the butter to my bread.

Prime isn't necessary, it just allows you to have free shipping on a lot of orders. You also get access to movies and stuff on amazon.com and it's really nice if you have a Kindle. If you're a student, you can use your school email to get a free trial.

A lingerie bag would be awesome!

u/DJWafflesnatcha · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras

I use a free and clear type of detergent when I wash them. Like this one. Put them in the washing machine on cold and using a washing bag for delicates like these.

If I want to make them smell girly, I just go to the department store and ask for samples of perfumes. Or grab those paper samples from a fashion magazine. Or you can also buy some of those fragrance sprays that cost like $5 because they're diluted.

u/human_half · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

Haha, the number depends on sweater size. My largest bag is 16"x19" and I can probably fit 5 light sweaters/knit tanks in it. I bought a set of bags like this one online and I love them!

u/PhireKitten · 1 pointr/funny

Maybe try these http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0001E83AE. I use them for my tank tops and delicates. They keep sleeves from tangling in the washer and dryer. The only downside is that you may need to increase the dry time. Best of luck!

u/eukomos · 2 pointsr/firstworldproblems

Wash it all in cold water unless you're sanitizing towels or something similarly specific. Put anything delicate in a mesh laundry bag and hang dry it. Also hang dry everything that is tailored or that you love very much, so jeans are also a hang dry item (they're actually quite tailored). Unless it's a knit, something with stretch in it like a sweater, those you lay flat to dry. Don't toss heavy items in the wash with the delicates, even if they are in the mesh bags. If you have the slightest suspicion that a new item of clothing might bleed dye then hand wash it and check, and if it does bleed then continue to hand wash it separately.

u/huggablepancake · 5 pointsr/UCDavis

There's something called a Scrubba which could be helpful to you! It's basically a portable washing bag with bumps and stuff inside of it to help you wash your clothes. Hope it helps!


u/Pnk-Kitten · 1 pointr/crochet

I don't wash unmade skeins, but I have read that some people do so in a lingerie bag and it works. If you were to try it, I would recommend washing on the gentle/delicate setting and drying on delicate as well, all in a very small bag. Otherwise with a made product, I just wash on those settings and don't worry about any unraveling unless I did a poor job of making it or the original maker did. The project might feel a bit "slick" to some people, but otherwise I have had success with this.

u/konekoanni · 5 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Every two weeks (same as my regular laundry) but I have six bras that I cycle through, not counting sports bras which I wash after every wear. However, now that I know my "true" size, I'll be slowly phasing out the poorly fitted ones for better ones, so who knows how much longer I'll have six bras to cycle through.

I machine wash mine on the delicate cycle in one of those special bra bags and hang-dry from a Japanese laundry clip thingy. Yeah, I know, I'm good with names.

u/trancematik · 2 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Here's the thing, a pillow case isn't nearly as um, "porous" as a mesh bag. Your products maybe prematurely breaking down due to sweat. So you'd save money by taking better care of them. I also don't see how you wouldn't find a laundry bag where you buy your groceries.

Also, its only £3 for them. Here's the ikea site and here's the amazon site.

If you get one of these. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005FD7Z82/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1469896410&sr=8-1&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=The+Laundry+POD&dpPl=1&dpID=31valjx5fVL&ref=plSrch

When you wash, a little color safe bleach and a heavy scoop of borax. And after washing, rinse, rinse, rinse (most important part). Then use something like this. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002QSXK60/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1469896618&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX205_SY296_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=clothing+wringer&dpPl=1&dpID=21YceYbYTnL&ref=plSrch

You can't hand-wring shirts-it fucks up their sizing and fit.

Rinse again and wring again. Straighten shirt to minimize wrinkles. Hang on line (fire escape) to dry.

Your shirts will last a decade looking brand new.

I wash my aprons, workclothes and maybe jeans/darks together. I buy these mesh cloth bags to put my apron in so they don't tangle up. you can buy them from IKEA or amazon something like this. I put a safety pin in the zipper so that way the aprons don't fall out. I also use a japanese wash board to get stains out of my clothes.

These two items are not just for my aprons, but all my laundry and I had them for a few years. I use it for safely washing my delicates or washing some tough stains and they are wonderful.

And more detergent wont help if the stains are tough and stuck on your clothes. You need to scrub the milk stains out.

u/miah_ · 3 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I buy at Aerie, buy 4 get 1 free. I think I have a dozen now =) Definitely hard to fit them all in my drawer.

Also got these nice bags for washing my bras Definitely makes me not dread washing them, so I always have clean bras ready.

I'm at about 2-3 weeks for washing them too, but rotating through a few different bras and hanging them between wearing.

If there aren't clothes hanging from the wainscoting in my bedroom something is probably wrong (or I have guests) =)

u/alphaecho4386 · 1 pointr/TinyHouses

I was looking at getting this. Its called Scrubba. Its a laundry bag. Pretty simple, some manual work, but I think it will use less water than a machine or a bucket and less splashing everywhere. Its like a dry bag, but with little nipples. I will be off grid, so any water saved is what I will be after.


u/allpurpleeverything · 4 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

HAHAHA possibly another bachelorette frog move - I don't wash them until they're about ready to crawl off to the washing machine on their own. About a week or longer because I wear them ONLY when I'm out of the house. Like at work. I go grocery shopping braless. And I wash them in this: http://www.amazon.com/Mesh-Lingerie-Delicates-Wash-Bag/dp/B0001E83AE

i have a mesh laundry bag that i use after training. i use a regular book bag to bring all of my clean stuff to the gym with, and then put all of the dirty stuff in the mesh bag when im done and carry it separately. i throw it in the wash with my gear too. it seems like the best option since nice gear bags are $150 and this is $6.


u/supportbones · 1 pointr/loseit

Use a lingerie bag when you machine wash, air dry, and the Last Resort will last forever.

Would you pay half that price? A cheaper bra will fall apart and you'll need to replace it long before something this solidly constructed will. I honestly do not remember how many years ago I bought mine. I've owned more of the Wired because they are much lighter and I've worn them as everyday bras too (it's that comfortable!)

Title9 has a comprehensive return policy. I had one that had a wire snap - I'd worn it many months - but a mid wire break is not from wear but a faulty wire... I brought it to the store and they looked at it and gave me a brand new one.

They have retail stores Anywhere I've lived the last decade has had had one - if you're lucky enough to be near one go try them all on :) They really are worth it.

u/khuddler · 13 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Get a mesh garment bag! Throw all your undies in there and then when she's ready to do the laundry you can chuck the whole bag in. It's great for socks too, you never lose one and end up with mismatches!

u/frunchysspringss · 10 pointsr/Hijabis

You can get some mesh lingerie bags kind of like this and just run it through in that. It still has enough space to jiggle around and get clean, but not so much that it gets tangled up in itself or other things. All of my everyday ones I wash like this, then hang dry. Air drying helps with wrinkles (though not a concern with crinkle hijabs, I guess), and they dry really fast. I usually just leave them over the back of the sofa overnight.

That's what I do for all my bras (super lazy one here) and my 3 yr old underwire sports bras are still going strong!

ETA: I got my bags at the local regional Walmart type store. Anywhere that has laundry supplies (clothes pins, hangers, etc) probably has them. Smaller mesh is better I've found, the bigger mesh lets the hooks through and they can snag on other stuff.

This is what you need to get. It's quite important that you save your bras, and the longer you go without this, the more they'll wear down, and that's no good. Plus, it's on your "I need this" list, and if that doesn't say that you need it, I don't know what does.

I wash my jerseys just fine without any damage (knock on wood) in the regular wash.

The full protective method of washing them would be to...

Turn the jersey inside out, and wash inside a mesh laundry bag on delicate / gentle.


u/jadeoracle · 1 pointr/travel

> washing in the shower

I've done this...with usually poor results. Most places I've stayed the water pressure hasn't been good enough to wash out the soap in the clothes (I've tried those travel laundry soap sheets...in my experience, they don't work well. I've also just used shampoo and regular soap, also with bad results). If you are somewhere humid it then can take a long time to dry (I carry a travel clothes line.)

The sink method is hard as not a lot of sinks I've found actually plug, so you'll need to bring a stopper or plug with you. If you can plug it, and have the time to really squish and clean, then it can be a better method. It still can be hard to completely get the clean.

Others may try something like this. I haven't tried it, but bloggers I follow like these types of systems.

> I don't want to pay upwards of $10 weekly to wash my clothes in laundry machines

Where are you traveling? I've been to places in Central America and places like Egypt where you can get laundry done very cheaply. The trick is also to only pay for it to be washed and then dry it yourself on a travel laundry line you bring with you (Again humidity can be a problem.)

I just do it in the sink and then squeeze as much water out as possible (don't twist/wring your garments though) and then roll it up in a towel to dry it a bit more, and then either hang or dry flat. You could also get a laundry pod or other similar salad-spinner inspired contraption to assist in getting the water out.

u/AskMrScience · 2 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

As a rule, men's clothing is not made of delicate fabrics like women's, and can just be chucked in the washer and dryer on any old setting. As a result, it's REALLY HARD to train guys to read the tags on your stuff when they're doing laundry. You can ruin a lot of bras and sweaters that way.

Pro laundry tip:
I bought a bunch of zip-up lingerie bags on Amazon. Now all my "don't throw this in the dryer" clothing goes in those bags, and it's super easy for my husband to set them aside when he's switching laundry from the washer to the dryer. (Then I hang those items on a collapsible rack to air dry.)

u/sonofaresiii · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

No, it's normal to put it in a hamper in your bedroom or the bathroom. But if you can't put it in the bathroom and don't have room in your bed room, then you have to be atypical and get something that hangs from the wall.

Hanging it from the wall isn't normal, but stuffing it under your bed is trashy.

Although really you should just re-evaluate your space and get rid of things/make room.

Also, have you tried asking your housemates if you can put a hamper in the bathroom? Get a divided one and they can use it too.

E: and I'm not saying literally hang your laundry from the wall. I'm saying get a hamper that mounts on the wall

Even something like this is fine

Front-Load washing machine? Fine. Top-Load? Probably put it in a laundry bag first. Gentle cycle either way. Don't use regular detergent, I use sports detergent with no fabric softener and then hang them with clothespins (don't drape them over a small bar or line; they can crease).

u/Hannah_CNC · 8 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Am I right that these mesh things are what I'm looking for in terms of washing? Also, do you think it would be better to wash alone or with some blankets and stuff? Seems like other stuff in the wash would provide some padding, but also something to rub against

u/LadyVictoria · 62 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Here are some things I do:

  • Hang everything up to air out after wearing it.
  • If possible (if you have a sunny spot in your house), hang them in the sun. Sunlight can kill some of the bacteria that causes odors.
  • In the winter, I always wear a short- or long-sleeve tee (not a sleeveless/tank top) under my sweaters to protect the armpits. I happily wear my sweaters anywhere between 6-12 times between washes.
  • I wear most of my jeans/pants until they start to smell. Usually also somewhere between 6-12 wears.
  • When you do wash your more delicate items, hand-wash them if you can. The washing machine (even on the delicate cycle) can be harsh on fibers.

    Also, I saw someone on here mention a few days ago that washing jeans or other harsher fabrics in the same load as more delicate fabrics can be a bad idea, because the harsher fabrics act like sandpaper to the more delicate fabrics, roughing them up during the cycle. Separating your loads with this in mind, and using mesh/lingerie bags for more delicate fabrics (not just lingerie), is a good idea, too.

    I'm looking forward to hearing other folks' tips!

Throw clothing, soap, and water in a roll top dry bag, get the air out, and agitate. Maybe add a big rock. I haven't used this method personally because I have a thinner verson that's made specifically for washing called the scrubba but I didn't want to advertise it because I think it's overpriced for what it is and the valve on mine stopped working.

You want to reccomend a bag?


Do you FOLD your wool shirt/larger garments in the bag before you put them in?

So really this garment bag stops, in a top down washer, the wool from wrapping around/extending around the agitator correct? Eucalan says 'no wash' so is it even suppose to go into the washer, or is just handwash in a big bucket?
