Among the things that Meghan Markle always packs when she travels is something you can buy basically at any store: dryer sheets. Meghan wrote on her now-defunct blog, The tig, that placing dryer sheets between the folded clothes in your purse will make “your clothes smell fresh when you arrive, and especially when you return home,” according to The star.
The Duchess of Sussex also shared other tidbits aimed at keeping travelers safe and healthy on their travels. “When I get on a plane, I always use some quick hand wipes or a travel sanitizer spray to dry everything up,” Meghan explained. That includes the little television, the serving tray and all the buttons around your seat. That suggestion, in particular, aged like fine wine.
Meghan’s last tip was a bit more typical, if not less helpful. She recommended bringing a scarf or blanket, for which she coined an adorable term: “portable hug.” Meghan wrote, “Throw it in your bag or backpack, and no matter how far you travel, you will always feel comforted both on and off the plane with something that feels and smells like home.” Whenever traveling is, as they say, a ‘thing’ again, we’ll have to try some of these tips for ourselves!
