Pack a one-gallon Ziploc bag and a travel-size shampoo container refilled with detergent. They come in handy when you need to wash hosiery, bras, and other delicate undergarments. Put a few drops of detergent into the bag and fill it partway with water. Place the item in the bag, close, and shake around for a few minutes. -Erika Kumada, Mount Prospect, Ill. (Photo: Kate Lacey)
