Ready to make your travel life a lot easier? Have you ever wondered how to stop nasty mosquito bites from itching or how to turn a bunk bed into a private room? Ever thought about being out in the sun without sweating like an idiot? Well you’ve come to the right page! We are help you with some of our travel knowledge. You’re welcome 😉
HOW TO DRY YOUR CLOTHES FASTER
Have you ever been in a situation where there was just no time to do laundry. You might have had to check out the next day, but some of your clothes were still way too wet to be put in your backpack… There’s a travel hack to make them dry up much faster:
ASHLEY: “Wash your clothes and place them on a towel. Shirts, socks, underwear.. place each of them in one separate towel and roll it up to then squeeze the water out. Your clothes will need just a little time to dry after that.”
HOW TO SAVE OLD FLIP FLOPS
Got some old flip flops you’ve been taking anywhere, but they are so old, you just slide on the ground? No need to throw them away! Here’s one of my travel hacks to make them get their grip back:
“Take a knife and cut the soles. This way you won’t slip anymore and your shoes are good as new. Applying some hair spray helps too, but I don’t like to feel like sticking to the floor. Get a knife and get the job done!”
HOW TO SNEAK THROUGH CUSTOMS
Let’s hypothetically say you might be a bit nervous walking through customs. Maybe the food in the country you’ve visited was just so delicious or the DVDs in Indonesia were just so cheap… well in that case, there’s a travel hack to sneak through the customs:
“Customs look for people who are nervous. People that are hiding something.. So why not be the opposite? Be tired and sleepy instead and YAWN! This will make i more likely for you not to be searched on your favourite destination.”
HOW TO SUPRESS A SNEEZE
It’s not really a travel hack, but a useful life hack! You might be in a situation, where sneezing is not appreciated. And stop here… I know! Sneezing is amazing and who does not LOVE to sneeze? I cannot answer that, but just in case, there’s an acupuncture pressure point right below your nose. Press that little space between your nose and you’re mouth and the sneezing will stop immediately.
HOW TO INCREASE THE WATER PRESSURE OF YOUR SHOWER
We’ve all had this situation: You want to wash your hair, but there is just not enough water pressure to rinse off all of the shampoo. You end up under the shower for ages, swearing towards the water drops.
EVE: “Take a bottle of water and pinch small holes inside. Attach it to the hose and you’re set! Water pressure increases- job is done.”
HOW TO TREAT CUTS WITH BANANAS
You know this situation: there’s a cut on your finger and though this tiny little cut is not big, but it hurts like hell. What to do?
MOJO: “Take a banana and rub it over the inflamed area. It soothes the skin and speeds up the healing procedure! This also works with sunburns and mosquito bites.
HOW TO STOP BITES FROM ITCHING
Talking about mosquito bites: they hurt like hell and the itching makes you want to cut your ankles off. We’ve all been there.
I actually did have 187 spider bites and I can assure you, that I know how to stop the itching. Thanks to my friend Reli, who has been working with babies and knows her remedies: This travel hack will be the most useful one.
RELI: “Apply liquid soap on the bite and do NOT wash it off. It will stop the itching for at least 20 minutes. This will also work with solid soap as long as the bite is covered from the air.
HOW TO TURN YOUR DORM BED INTO A PRIVATE ROOM
That travel hack is a good one! Dorms are cheap, but private rooms give you more privacy. Why not combine both?!
You can actually attach a blanked to the upper bed and … here you go with your private room! Plus you’ll feel like a happy kid again building up your own castle!
HOW TO REDUCE LUGGAGE WEIGHT ON THE CHECK-IN
“Attach a little string onto your bag and secretly lift it up when you’re at the check in.” Anonymous because illegal 😉
HOW TO SAVE MONEY ON FOOD
Go on a fruit diet!
“No way, what the fuck…?!!”
But, hey! Have you ever tried it? I use this travel hack while traveling, because it is not only cheap- it also makes you happy. Try it out for a week and see how you feel! Vegetables are allowed too 😉
HOW TO GET A SEAT ON THE WINDOW
CLETUS: “Walk through the plane last and sit down at the window that is not occupied yet. No-one will know it’s not you who actually booked it.”
HOW TO GET RID OF SMELLY CLOTHES
ASHLEY: “It’s so simple! Just hang them out in the air on a coat hanger over night!”
It actually is! Or stay right next to a bonfire- sometimes this smell is even more effective 😉
HOW TO STOP SWEATING
ASHLEY: “Do not use shampoo when you go out into the sun! Shampoo blocks your pores and makes you sweat more. Easy as that!”
HOW TO MAKE MEN’S HAIR LOOK AMAZING
Guys: this one is for you! Short hair and partying all night don’t go well together, but there’s a travel hack that makes your hair look just as amazing as before.
