Subject: Re: Packing Lite & Wrinkles
Whether it's traveling to Italy (last year) or to the Oregon coast (this year), I am convinced that ziplock baggies are the way to go. It's great to reach into your bag and pull out a bag of undies or shirts or whatever. Although I'm not crazy about wrinkles and prefer cotton or cotton blends, one trick I used was to wash a shirt (only works with light to medium weights), put it on a hanger and stretch it into shape. It either dried overnight or if it was damp in the morning I could reshape it again. It worked well and my husband was impressed. Not as crisp as if I'd ironed it (as if!) but perfectly accepable. I'd love to get down to a 7lb bag, but I don't think I ever will.
