Q: I leave for vacation next week.  Is there any way to pack so my clothes won’t get wrinkled?

A: You can minimize creases in clothing by rolling instead of folding.  Make sure the item is wrinkle free before rolling and smooth out any creases as you go.

Choose material wisely.  Cotton blended with nylon, polyester, or lycra is less likely to wrinkle than an item made of 100% cotton, linen, or satin.

Once you reach your destination take your clothing out of your suitcase and hang them up as soon as possible.

If you still have wrinkles and are avoiding ironing, try bringing the item into the bathroom.  The steam from your hot shower will allow some of the wrinkles to release.
