Laundry Soap in Small Bags Travel Tip
Buy the smallest bag of powdered laundry detergent possible when traveling, it is the wise decision. Never buy liquid soap; for sure, that is a recipe for disaster.

I hope you folks appreciate the sacrifice I had to make to write this travel tip… (Too much soap) hehehe, someone click on the donation button.
(Omo is the soap that too-stupid-for-words woman keeps talking about in the book the White Masai.)

I can save money if I buy the big bag of Omo in Kenya, Africa. However, after years of hand washing clothes, I give up, it is not worth it, and I think I lose money by purchasing larger bags.

What happens is this, when I open a large bag I never use the whole bag in time of washing. I then try to save the soap for my next washday; however, the bag of open power tends to:

1. Spill
2. Spill or empty inside my backpack.
3. Get wet and hard to use.
4. I cannot be bothered to pack up and just leave in the room half full.
5. I need to give the bag of soap to the cleaner, some people require I provide the soap, I have yet to have any of them return the unused portion.

Yes, I can store in a ziplop bag, I can use bread bag ties, I can use rubber bands, and I can as the Brits say,
"Not be bothered."


Nevertheless, buy the smallest bag of laundry soap possible, it is the best decision.
