    I'm going to have a business trip at the start of next month. It's so annoying that I have to package all clothes. But everytime when I take them out after arrival, they get too wrinkled to dress. This time, I am getting smarter and I bought a Easehold Iron Steamer. I just found it on amazon and it shows that it's amazon choice. I bought it with a discount code. It seems worth it. Now wait for a delivery and will give a feedback here if it works.[​IMG]

    I'm not sure if I placed it the right community? Maybe wrong?

    House plant section. No big thing.
    I always hated my clothes getting wrinkled when I traveled, which at the time was a lot. Fortunately I was a field service engineer so nobody cared if I look like a slob they just wanted their CT or MRI scanner working, now. I guess it's different for women tho.

    I used to put mine on a hanger in the shower with straight hot water and let it steam for about 10 minutes. I guess I was a little less water conscious back then. Let us know how it works.

    I used to hang clothes on hanger and never take it off and keep it like that. They would get wrinkled that easily. But it's not really good for a trip.

    Guess your not up on the tricks of world travel... This is a trick that worked for me 20 years ago... not sure they would work now, all the security precautions.

    You know the hotel you will be staying at in advance... call and find out which dry cleaner they use... All nice hotels have a "go to dry cleaner and laundry". Fedex the clothes you need to have dry cleaned and pressed to the cleaners with instructions to be delivered to your hotel on the evening of your arrival or pick them up before closing time yourself.

    The result! You have freshly dry cleaned & pressed clothes for your business meeting.

    It'll cost you about $30 fedex but you can probably put dry cleaning on your expense report. I used to expense it as well as laundry. There were a few years I traveled 250-300 days a year, used to expense all sorts of crap.

    Too funny... Once an airline lost my luggage. After 10 days and 3 cities later I had to go to a mall and buy everything... razor, socks, undies... pants, shirts... everything...

    The funny part... after 30 minutes in the parking lot with my new clothes I couldn't find my rental car... Until I realized I was looking for a car I had five days ago in different city... Talk about feeling stupid... :oops:

    Back in the 80s I worked for a company that was headquarter in Connecticut. We stayed in New Haven for weeks at a time during training. My laundry bill ran around $150 a week. The company said we needed to use the hotel service. They charged $2.00 to wash a pair of socks. As a side benefit the laundry lost a lot of stuff so we would have to fight with the hotel to get compensated. I think it was all ran by an organized crime syndicate and someone from the company was getting a kickback.

    We have mailed stuff to the hotel before, especially if we need to change planes. Most of them have a iron and ironing board available.

    There are all sorts of tricks I’ve learned from traveling on business or being relocated by employers around the country. By all means, talk to folks who do it regularly.

    Yes, the airline finally found my luggage on that occasion. It was delivered to my apartment in CA about a month later. It had tags on it from the Philippians and Japan. I didn’t leave the country on that trip! When they did send me overseas it was always to Europe or the middle east. How my luggage ended up in Japan I have no idea.

    I had a co-worker years ago who was the un-luckiest traveler in the world. If something could go wrong it happened to him! When ever he returned from a trip everyone in the office was waiting to hear the harrowing tale.

    Once he was sent to Soul, South Korea to install a catscan. He arrived on a Friday. He had a $25,000.00 cashiers check. He was supposed to open a bank account. He was to use the monies for his living expenses, hotel etc. He was to hire a rigging/equipment moving company to move all the crates from customs to the hospital. Hire interpreters, laborer’s or anyone else he needed.

    What no one at our company knew… the Friday he arrived was a Korean national holiday. The Banks were closed, everything was closed! The only credit card he had wasn’t accepted in Korea. There was nowhere to exchange money with the little cash he had. He did exchange his cash on the street, of course he got ripped off.

    He spent 3 nights on a park bench. The last day, Sunday he no longer had money for food. The entire time he had a useless $25,000 cashiers check in his brief case. Too Funny! He was lucky he wasn’t robbed! :D:D:D

    Your luggage did have a long journey......

    When I read at he had a $25,000.00 cashiers check.....I was worrying that he lost that money by some reasons....

    You shared so "funny" stories I have never heard. Hope that funny things would not happen....again to another unlucky people.

    Bet my Boss could give your co-worker a run for his money. Usually my Boss's lacking on planning and foresight that causes most of his traveling bad luck.

    Ok...I received the steamer yesterday and set it up according to the user manual, pretty much easy to use. It can deal with normal wrinkles and maybe it works differently on different fabrics I guess.
    Since I received you guys' suggestion ( the tricks of world travel) , I won't take it with my trip. It would be good for home daily use or clothes stores use maybe.
    The price is acceptable with the code I found on deal forums: https://amzn.to/2trwTuI code EEFYLJTZ
    If you wanna try, go ahead.
