The team’s go-to tricks for hassle-free travel
Recycle your plastics. Hotel shower caps make great slip-on covers for dirty shoes. The kids’ water wings are perfect winebottle protectors. – Michelle von Schlicht, art director Use a product that does it all. “I’m obsessed with argan oil and coconut oil for nourishing my whole body, face and hair.” They are both great make-up removers too! - Michelle October, junior writer
Shrink your toiletries. Decant shampoo, conditioner and face wash into small plastic bottles with squirt lids to save space and weight. - Leigh Cann, senior designer | Wear your heavy stuff. “To save bag space, I wear my bulkiest clothes in transit – boots and jacket if I’m city-bound; takkies if I’m heading to an island.” - Wanita Nicol, deputy ed
Create a base outfit. “I always pack a pair of black leggings and a thin black vest – that way I can layer up for warmth without packing for all seasons.” - Danielle Weakley, editor PACK A WATERPROOF BAG FOR DAMP COSSIES.
