pack suits and shirts when traveling?
A suitcase filled with wrinkled pieces can be frustrating when appointments and events await. One of the few ways to avoid such a catastrophe from happening is to improve your basic packing skills.
To properly pack a suit, fold each sleeve of the suit to the center. Then, fold the trousers in three, and fold them in half again. Place them on top of the suit and fold the bottom of the suit over the top so that the trousers fit into one convenient package. Place the folded items in a plastic bag but leave some air inside to alleviate some of the pressure caused by being stuffed in a suitcase.
To pack a button-down shirt, iron it first to smooth out any wrinkles and button it all the way up. Fold the sleeves just like how you normally fold your shirt, but turn out the collar. Lay one shirt over another and fold them inwards into each other. It is also advisable to put the shirt in a plastic bag, just like the suit.
If you do not have enough time to pack properly, once you arrive at your destination you can steam or iron them. Alternatively, fill a clean spray bottle with water and use it on the wrinkles to dampen the suit or shirt, and then use your hand to smooth out the surface.
