You rolled all your clothes and carefully placed them into your luggage, followed by your shoes stacked neatly on top. Fast-forward to unzipping your suitcase in the hotel room and ohmyGod the dirt that was caked onto the bottom of your heels is now all over that crisp white button-down. It’s a dark place, but we’ve been there. 

Turns out, the secret to keeping your clothes dirt-free lies in your linen closet. Next time you’re packing a bag, grab an old pillowcase (those bedding bags your sheets come in will work, too). Stick your shoes straight into the pillowcase, fold over the open end to “close” it and voilà—a suitcase full of clean things.

Props for being resourceful and fabulous.
