Style For Style: Easy Traveling With Cotton

Victoria's Secret at ShopStyle

Even though it's been a while since the Transportation Security Agency implemented airport liquid regulations, I don't think I'll ever get used to it. Simply put: it's freaking annoying. But, I'm not going to do anything to jeopardize my trip. What I can do is minimize the liquids I take on my travels with me. For cotton items, like this Victoria's Secret Plaid Shirtdress ($68), I learned a brilliant solution to keep them wrinkle-free and travel-easy.

To easy-travel with cotton,

To keep my cotton dresses, shirts, and pants crisp, I use spray starch, like this Faultless Spray Starch ($4). When traveling, however, I don't bring the bulky can with me. So here's what I do . . .

  • Spray all cotton clothes with starch the day of the flight.
  • Cover them individually with a plastic bag.
  • Neatly fold them into luggage or hang them in garment bag.
  • Upon arrival of destination, take starched clothes out of plastic bags.

Just don't forget step two; you don't want to mess up your non-cotton clothes.

garment bags are the best, I was able to purchase a jendarling bag last month at a trunk show. Now, all my clothes are literally wrinkle-free while in flight. Thanks for the tips, never thought about starch. Makes excellent sense!

i like the spritzer bottle idea too....and Downy makes a small bottle of their wrinkle-releaser stuff might be more than 3oz though...i'll have to check...i'm fed up with the 3oz thing too!

I'll have to remember this, and share it with my sister! I've always done the spritzer bottle technique. Pack an empty spritzer bottle (they make little travel ones, just go for a fine mist), then spritz whatever's wrinkled lightly, and give it a once-over with the hotel room hairdryer.
