Packing for Business Trips

Postby Nagel » Tue, 08 Mar 2005 10:14 pm

Hi all,

I would like your advice in packing shirts for business trips. How do you pack them and keep them crease free? What do you do when you need to iron your shirts in the hotel?

Thanks :D

So, everyone else has talked about the iron... and if they don't have an iron, hang your shirts in the bathroom, turn on the shower full hot, close the door for 20 or 30 minutes, and let the steam take the wrinkles out.

As far as packing, have a suitcase large enough for a single fold in half. The kind of suitcase that has a shirt and pants fly is great... helps keep things from moving. And, don't overpack so that things are squashed in too tightly.
