Tips on How to Pack Linens & Towels for Vacation
When packing for a trip into the outdoors, you will need to think about the towels and other linens you are going to need. If you plan on swimming, taking a bath or dealing with rain, you will need towels. You will also need linens for your bed. These items are bulky and will take up space, if not packed correctly. By following a few basic tips, your linens and towels will be condensed, allowing more space for your gear.

Instructions

Difficulty: Easy

Things You’ll Need:
  • Large plastic bag Duffel bag Suitcase
  • Large plastic bag
  • Duffel bag
  • Suitcase
Step 1
Consider all of the activities you plan on doing that will require a towel and what the predicted weather conditions are in the area you will be traveling to. You can then plan on how many towels you will need.
Step 2
Figure out how much bedding will be required for the trip and set it aside. Figure out how many additional types of linens will be needed such as dish cloths or dish towels.
Step 3
Assemble all the linens and towels needed for the trip into one place. You will be less likely to forget something if you have them stacked all together.
Step 4
Choose one bag to be designated entirely for the linens and towels. Use a large plastic bag, duffel bag or if you only need a few items, your suitcase.
Step 5
Roll each towel or piece of linen up tightly into a roll and place it into the container. Rolling will take up less space than if you packed them flat.
Step 6
Place each towel next to each other, fitting them together tightly to take up less space. Stack another rolled set on top of the first layer, if needed.

Tips & Warnings

 
Place the linens you will be using first on the top layer so you will be able to get to them easily. Place a dryer sheet in with your towels and linens to keep them smelling fresh. Placing your linens and towels in a water-resistant bag will keep them dry in the event of flooding rains.
