Paper shampoo avoids carry on baggage hassles when traveling

paper shampoo

Last year when I was on a business trip I tried avoiding an extra charge for overweight luggage by taking out some of my heavier shampoo and other toiletries and putting them in my carry on (which had no weight limit). Of course airline regulations forbid carrying anything liquid (over a certain size). Turns out I forfeited half of what I tried to carry. Due to my aversion to the nasty hotel shampoo bottles I was forced to make a hasty 1am shopping trip to pick up shampoo when I reached my destination. Had I brought along some of these dissolving sheets of shampoo I could have avoided the worry entirely. Not only is this paper shampoo lighter than liguid – – it can be carried onboard the plane. I can’t guarantee that you’ll have the worlds cleanest hair – but paper shampoo seems like an interesting way to lighten your luggage as well as have a backup supply of shampoo in case your main luggage gets lost in transit.

  2. Yeah, it’s called way too much free time on my hands..:-)

  3. We travel with laundry detergent that comes in little sheets like this. Just toss one in the sink and do a quick batch of socks and unmentionables and voila. Two more days on the road without another suitcase.

  4. Hotel shampoo is fine with me, and it’s already there when I arrive !

  5. Hotel shampoo is fine with me, and it’s already there when I arrive ! Now if they made toothpaste…

  6. I have a massive collection of hotel shampoo, soaps, lotions and the like including a big box of hotel keys. One of minor benefits of traveling.

    Chris C: I thought that old road warrior’s trick to packing light was turning socks and undies inside out.

  7. Inside out, forwards and backwards=four days out of one pair of boxers.
