Shampoo for handwashing clothes? [R]2 years, 9 months agoFeb. 13, 2017
Feb. 14, 2017
I bring a small Tupperware type container. When I arrive at my destination I buy the smallest local bag of detergent from a local market, and put it in the Tupperware then carry it along on my trip.
Many people don't know that some detergents are formulated for the local conditions.
Be sure to remember to bring your sink stopperhttps://www.amazon.com/Do-Best-431125-Rubber-Stopper/dp/B000DZD3QA

What's the most common thing you have packed but never used? What are common things people shouldn't pack or pack less of?
What's the most common thing you forget to pack and need, or you packed and run out of?
Any tips for the most efficient packing for light weight, smooth transition through airport + well organized?

For travelling / backpacking in Europe, I have found a few things useful:
- Flat rubber sink plug for handwashing in hostel sinks
- Rubber travel clothesline for hanging clothes
- Tube of concentrated laundry soap
- Packing cubes help to keep clothes organized
- Travel towel (Packtowl is my favorite)
- Eye mask & ear plugs
- Plastic bags and elastic bands (useful for many things including wet clothes)
- PDF versions of guidebooks (eg. Lonely planet)
- External USB battery for phone/device charging
- European SIM card
- Having some quick-dry clothing
- Light and cheap laptop for long-term trips
- P+S camera, gopro
- Flip flops for hot weather, around the hostle and in the hostel showers
- 0% exchange credit card to taking out cash
- Combination padlock for hostel lockers (no key to lose)
- Offline map app such as Here Maps
- Small container with an assortment of bandages
- Cold and flu medicine, anti-biotic ointment, aspirin
- Heavy physical guidebooks
- Multiple pairs of shoes (1 is enough)
- Power transformer (an adapter is enough as most cell phone and laptop adapters chargers can accept 110-230 V)
- Lots of cash on hand (take out as needed to reduce theft / loss risk)
- I brought a small steel cable to lock my bag in places that didn't have lockers but i never used it
- Sewing kit (haven't used it in 6 months)
- Sleep sheet (I brought one in case there were dirty places I had to sleep in but it wasn't necessary in the end)
- Under-the-shirt / under-the-belt passport holder. There are varied opinions but I prefer leaving my passport in the hostel locker.

This one was recommended through a blog post I found somewhere. Amazon reviews and others have said it works in sinks of all shapes and sizes, it has worked in the few situations I've tried it. We'll see how it fares in the multitude of sinks I'll be using on my trip.

I'll be spending 2 weeks in June in Austria/Switzerland, then 2 weeks in July in Tokyo/Osaka Japan. I'll be backpacking for the first time, is there any key thing I'm missing in my packing list?

I see you have clothes line on your list but no detergent or sink stopper. if you're going to sink wash your clothes, you could buy the detergent there, but I've found a flat sink stopper to be essential in a lot of hostels where there is no other way to stop the water. I use these.
YSK: You don't need an 80L backpack to travel the world. [R]5 years, 8 months agoFeb. 23, 2014
I'm a guy and my last big trip was 18 months on five continents. I took a 40L backpack and a simple messenger bag for daily use. One really only needs a passport and a credit card, but here's what I took.
-three pair silk undies (easy to wash/dry - like these)
-three t-shirts (the kind that wicks)
-two pair shorts (one zip-away)
-one pair trail running shoes (not boots!)
-one pair flip flops/jandles/thongs (you'll buy plenty along your route)
-three pair bicycling socks (light and comfy - similar to these)
-lightweight rain jacket
-unlocked mobile phone
-camera (nothing fancy, but larger than a simple point and shoot)
I only took enough clothes to wear for a few days, and I'd wash the dirties in the sink, then hang dry overnight.
That way it was easy to get into planes (carry on only), tuk-tuks, taxis, ferries, boats, motos, and even a few camels.
Anything else I needed - I bought (and disposed of) along the way.
Anyways, just know it doesn't take much.
Just remember - after you've practiced packing your bag, get rid of half of the clothes you just packed . . . you won't need them or miss them.

I'd do a wash every third day or so. Many items like pants or shorts can go a long time between cleanings.
-Public laundromat or laundry service (small loads)
-laundry in the hostel
-sometimes I'd take my undies or socks in the shower w/ me and wash them w/ my bar of soap. Of course I do my best to be respectful of others.
-most common though is in a basin when I have an en suite.
I have a braided rubber laundry line with velcro loops on the ends (something like this, but I forgot where I got it)
I can hang my clothes to dry on my bunk, on a porch, between two chairs, anything really . . . it's very handy.
Also, get a rubber sink stopper for the basin.
