Travel Tip Thursday: Hanging Wet Clothes

Whenever I travel and plan on going into the water, whether that be pool, lake or the sea, there is one items that I always throw into my suitcase.  My Flexoline which I used to hang and dry bathing suits and wet clothes.

Flexo-LineI have used this in hotel rooms, on cruise ships, rented houses and even a car.  It is perfect for stretching a clothesline between to fixed posts and takes up absolutely no space in your suitcase!

Flexo-Line-In-UseI have not found anything else that can replace this, even if you pack string you would still need pins, which is not necessary with this little guy.  You never want to pack wet clothes as the rest of your stuff can end up damp and moldy.

How about you? Have another way that you dry clothes when you are out on the road?

  1. That is a very nice tool because whenever I travel, I am really worried where to hang my wet undies and suits.

  2. Really good find, I’m always wondering what to do with my stuff when I travel!

  3. @Lindsey, glad it helped you!

  4. Great tip!

  5. @Jennie, it really works well.

    I usually just try to hang stuff from the shower curtin or on the tub. And they of course end up on the floor.

  7. Love this! We cloth diaper, and have on vacation, this would have been perfect for that.

  8. @Vera, it definitely would! I used mine for bathing suits while we were on our cruise.

  9. @Kristina, try this tool out, it is a lifesaver. I hung out bathing suits on it from the balcony on the cruise boat. And even with the wind, everything stayed put.

  10. Beth Ann Smith says:

    This is a great idea. I traveled in Mexico and my swimsuit never did dry out because I hung it over the shower rod. While traveling in Great Briton, finding Laundromats was a problem so we washed our underwear every night, and where do you hang it if you have a shared bathroom?

    What a brilliant idea! Versatile, practical, convenient, and compact.
