Here are six practical travel essentials that you should never leave home without, no matter where you’re traveling to, or how you’re getting there.
Laundry Bag and Detergent
Easily separate your dirty laundry while traveling with a nylon or mesh laundry bag. Laundry bags in an assortment of sizes are sold in both stores and online. Since doing laundry is often an inevitable part of more extended vacations, several manufacturers have developed hand washing detergent, allowing you to do this chore in a hotel sink or bathtub. Kits are available online with everything you’ll need to get started.
There’s nothing worse than having to stay near an outlet to charge your phone while on vacation. Portable chargers are a lightweight pocket-friendly solution to a phone battery that won’t last the day without a boost. Whenever you need extra juice, plug your phone into the portable charger, and you’re good to go. Purchasing tip: 3,500mAH chargers are generally best in terms of portability and capacity.
An extension cord is a must-have if you frequently travel with a lot of electronic devices such as a laptop, tablet, camera, or gaming console. Traveling with friends or family? Swap the extension cord for a power strip. Knowing that there are plenty of outlets available to you can ultimately provide peace-of-mind. These travel essentials won’t take up much room in your luggage either.
If you’re traveling with kids, Travel Tray makes snack time a lot easier. Travel Tray is an affordable drink and snack tray that is designed to accommodate more than 90 percent of cup holders found in today’s vehicles, car seats, and strollers. It is 100% food-grade safe, BPA free, and top-rack dishwasher safe. Plus: It is available in a variety of colors to ensure the kids (or mom and dad) don’t fight over it.
First Aid Kit
It is always a good idea to be prepared for all of life’s little surprises. That’s why we recommend carrying a First Aid Kit with you. The kit should include medicine, bandages, and other essentials for everyone in your travel party. You can either purchase a pre-made kit or make your own using a cosmetic bag. Additional items to pack include earplugs, Airborne, and antibacterial wipes or hand sanitizer.
