Managing Laundry While Travelling

One of the problems of travelling, especially when you’re away for quite some time, is doing the laundry. Keeping your clothes clean may be easy if you’re staying in a property that provides on-premise laundry services like in some hotels or Airbnbs. No matter where you’re staying when you travel, there are several ways to keep your clothes clean.  

Managing Laundry While Travelling

  •  Hand wash

This ancient style of doing the laundry- hand washing- will always come in handy.  It is a simple method that everyone should know how to do. For those of you that don’t know how to properly hand wash, check out our blog on how to hand wash clothes. All you need is a sink, bucket or tub, water and soap. 

  • Bag method

There are two methods of washing your clothes using a bag: the Aloksak method and the scrubba wash bag. The Aloksak bag is a transparent, durable and waterproof ziplock bag, designed to store items of any kind and works great for doing the laundry. Add your dirty clothes, water and soap inside the bag and mix it up before leaving to soak for 10 minutes and rinsing it out.

The scrubba wash bag is a portable wash bag that provides a quality wash. Perfect for travelling or camping. To use the scrubba wash bag, add your dirty clothes, water and soap, and then seal the bag. Then, deflate to remove excess air and start rubbing the clothes around for a few minutes before rinsing.

  • Laundromat

Laundromats can pretty much be found all over the world, specifically in larger cities and towns. They’re usually easy to spot and are great for other services too such as dry-cleaning and tailoring. The only problem with this is, you’ll need to carry around cash, and you’ll have to do your research for the best laundromat in town to avoid inconvenient problems. 

  • Local laundry services

If you travel to a town with no nearby laundry facilities (typically in places within Asia or Africa), there may be a chance that someone in the area runs a local laundry business within their own home or would be willing to do the laundry for your for a small fee. If this is the case, it will be helpful to ask local people if they know anyone who can do this for you.

  • Laundry collection and delivery service

Fortunately, the demand for outsourcing laundry is becoming increasingly popular that there are laundry services that will pick up and drop off your laundry to your location. Laundryheap laundry and dry cleaning services are available in some areas with the UK, Ireland, Amsterdam, Dubai and Sharjah.

Best Fabrics To Travel With

The best clothing fabrics to bring on holiday are ones that are durable and can be worn multiple times without being washed. They are quick at drying, wrinkle resistant, lightweight to pack and odour resistant.

You won’t find the perfect material that ticks ALL boxes but there are some fabrics that will make doing laundry while travelling much easier.

  • Denim: Doesn’t require regular washing.
  • Polyester and Nylon: Dries quickly, wrinkle resistant and lightweight.
  • Merino wool: Lightweight, dries quickly and is wrinkle resistant.
  • Rayon: Quick drying and wrinkle resistant.

Whatever clothing you decide to bring, make sure to check the care label to see if clothes are machine washable and can be machine dried if you don’t plan on regularly hand washing them.

How To Keep Yourself Cool During Summer in Dubai

Dubai in the summer is famous for its unbearable scorching heat, often reaching above 40°C (104°F). Fortunately, many, if not all places in Dubai are equipped with air-conditioning and indoor activities to help keep cool during the summer. There are also several things you can do for yourself to help you beat the heat.

Whether you’re an expat new to Dubai, a tourist or a local, here are some tips to keep yourself cool during the summer in Dubai.

  • Wear the right clothing

Stick to lightweight, loose fitted clothing for maximum protection from the sun. Avoid wearing dark colours, especially black, as these tend to absorb the heat quickly. Wear light colours instead to keep yourself cool and do wear a hat.

If you’re a tourist who is culturally unaware of what clothes are appropriate to wear in Dubai, check out our post- Tourist Advice: What To Wear In Dubai.

  • Start your day early

The heat is at it’s the highest temperature from 10 am, so it’s best to start your day as early as 7 am. Whether you need to run errands or want to do an activity, you’ll be able to get things done without having to worry about being in the unbearable heat.

  • Stay Hydrated

An obvious way to keep cool is to remain hydrated! Make sure to drink water frequently and carry around bottled water with you. The best way to drink water in such scorching heat is to consume small quantities at regular intervals rather than infrequent gulps.

  • Eat lighter meals

Avoid indulging in heavy meals and snacks such as fried and fast food, as this requires more energy to digest thus making you feel quickly drained of energy. Instead, eat light and healthy meals at frequent intervals to keep you refreshed throughout the day. 

  • Stay in air-conditioned places

All buildings and transportation in Dubai are fully air-conditioned, so staying anywhere other than outside will definitely keep you cool. Take advantage of the mall, a restaurant, museum or gallery.

Although it might seem unlikely, there are many activities to do in the summer in Dubai that will keep you cool, such as going to water parks, swimming in pools and indoor ice skating.

If you want to go to the beach, go before 10 am or in the early evening. This way you’ll avoid the burning heat of the sun and the sea.

It can be hard to not perspire at all, unless you’re always in a cool, air-conditioned environment. If you need to freshen up your clothes, you can book a laundry collection with Laundryheap and expect to have your clothes clean and delivered to you within 24 hours.

8 Things Expats Should Know Before Moving To Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a beautiful city with amazing architecture and serene canals. If you’re planning to move to Amsterdam, here are a few things you should know and some tip to prepare yourself.

8 Thins Expats Should Know Before Moving To Amsterdam

  • It rains A LOT 

The weather in Amsterdam is dull most of the time and the sun rarely comes out. So be prepared for regular gloomy weather consisting of rainy days and wind. It’s best to always bring around an umbrella to prepare for unexpected rain.

Don’t let the weather stop your plans though. One thing for sure is that the rain doesn’t stop locals from biking around, as long as they have a raincoat or umbrella, they’re good to go.

  • Get used to cycling!

There are more bikes in Amsterdam than there are people! Cycling is the main form of transportation. You’ll notice that although there are cars to be found, the city is not entirely car-friendly. Besides everyone uses a bike to get from point A to B, no matter what the occasion is.

  • Beware of bike thieves

The crime rate is very low in Amsterdam, except for bike theft. It’s common to be in a situation where you will own a few bikes in a year because your bikes get stolen, just ask the locals! Thieves will also steal just your bike wheel or bike seat. So, it’s best not to own such an expensive bike and make sure you have good bike locks. 

  • Housing isn’t the best

Living in Amsterdam is very pricey due to the growing population of expats and because of this, it can be difficult to find a place to rent. With such a big population for a small city, chances are you might find a place you actually like, only to find out that many other people are interested in it too and have given in their documents. In addition, housing properties will come unfurnished and you should expect to buy all the appliances you need, including the floor!

  • Credit cards aren’t well supported

Just know that credit cards are useless in Amsterdam (or in the Netherlands in general) when going to local supermarkets, museums or eateries. You can use debit cards that use the Maestro, Cirrus or Plus system. Otherwise, you must always carry around either cash or use a dutch maestro card.

  • Learn some Dutch

Most locals speak fluent English, but it isn’t their native language. The TV channels, signs, everything, is in Dutch. Although it can be easy to communicate by speaking English, you’ll feel more a part of the local community if you learned how to speak Dutch. It will help expand your social circle with the locals, rather than other expats or foreigners.

  • Work life balance is important

Dutch people value their personal time and so the work culture is incredibly healthy and balances out well with personal life. It’s normal for parents to take a day off work to focus on quality time with their families or work part-time. Companies are also flexible in terms of letting you work from home because of family obligations or commute problems.

  • Shops close early

In general, most shops close by 5 and supermarkets by 9pm, so you’ll have to run errands between 9-5 during workdays and 11-3 during the weekend. If you need to go to the bank or you have government appointments, you’ll have to go between 9-5. This is isn’t so much of a big deal since you can take a day off from work to run errands.

These are only some things to be prepared for when moving to Amsterdam. Despite a few negatives, there many more positive aspects to living in Amsterdam.

If you’re in need of a reliable laundry and dry cleaning service in Amsterdam, Laundryheap will happily collect, clean and deliver your clothes within 24 hours.

5 Reasons Why You Should Try Solo Travel

Solo travel can be a challenge because you’re stepping out of your comfort zone and taking on the unexpected and unknown wonders of the world. The thought of it may seem uncomfortable at first but once you try it, you’ll find it to be one of the best experiences of your life.

5 Reasons Why You Should Try Solo Travel

  • Freedom 

Travelling with friends, family or your other half creates amazing memories, but you may not get a chance to do all the things you actually want to do. Travelling by yourself is a liberating experience as you get the freedom to do what you want, when you want, without anyone telling you otherwise. 

  • Independence

Since you’re by yourself, you ‘re forced to take on full responsibility for what you do and where you go next. You get to make the decisions for everything and the only person you can rely on is yourself. This will make you feel empowered once you return from your trip.

  • Build Confidence

As you rely on yourself on your solo travel, you’ll learn to figure things out. You’ll find that there are many things you’re capable of doing that you thought you never were before. Your problem-solving skills will improve and so will your social skills.

  • Meet new people

Travelling alone is a great chance to meet new people, whether that’d be locals of the town or like-minded travellers you’ll meet at the hostel. Either way, you’ll seem more approachable as a solo traveller and be more inclined to create conversations with whomever you meet along your travels.

  • Self-discovery

Solo travel is a great way to discover yourself as you discover what else the world has to offer. It’s a great time to self-reflect as you get to broaden your perspective on life and learn more about yourself. It will give you the chance to find out what brings you peace of mind and what makes you truly happy.

These are only a few of the many reasons as to why you should try solo travel at least once in your life. The experience will allow you to grow as an individual and certainly broaden your perspective on everything.
