Tip #230 - Packing Advice
Plastic grocery bags from the supermarket make excellent vessels for your shoes within your suitcase. This way, should any debris be present, it will not transfer to your clean clothes. On your return, the same bags can be used to hold any damp items, such as a bathing suit, or your dirty clothes. You can go so far as to use them to separate darks, from whites, and so on. Then when you arrive home, your sorting is done, and all you have to do is empty the sorted dirty clothes into the machine!
