Traveling with Linen

Iron linen garments before packing for a trip.

Stuff sleeves and wrap garments with tissue paper. You can use regular tissue paper for packing for travel.

Cover garments with plastic dry cleaning bags to help prevent wrinkling.

Fold or hang garments in luggage at the last possible minute. When hanging garments in a garment bag or fold-over luggage, pull arms of jackets and blouses around to the front.

Unpack and hang up garments as soon as possible upon arrival.

Use a travel iron to press out any creases that may have developed in travel. Do not try to steam out wrinkles; wrinkles must be pressed out with an iron.
