Going on day 4 at airport out station hotel that doesn't have a washer/dryer. $2 per pair of socks etc to have laundry done. Does this happen often on the road? Do most hotels not have laundry??? I am going to have to plan this out much better.

I like ex officio undershirts, boxers, and socks. They do great with sink-washing, when required!

I take clothes to last at least a week. Sometimes I wash in the sink. I try and plan it so I can get laundry done somewhere cheaply. MIA, HHN, PVG, HKG all have cheap laundry available. A number of the hotels have laundry equipment you can use (like HHN).

Most of our hotels in the US have laundry facilities...both RMS and HHN in Europe have machines also...

If you (sorry, as a 767 pilot, not likely but could happen) make it to HKG, ICN, PVG, etc cheap laundry shops near all of our hotels...SYD hotel at Coogee Beach, I don't remember.

I can't afford exofficio (!!) but I've been wearing Columbia, North Face, Eddie Bauer, etc quick dry stuff for a long time...and sorry, I don't do laundry in the sink!! I plan ahead and get it done at a shop (in Asia or Mid East) or use coin-operated machines.

Another thing to remember is to have a "cruise shirt" available on the freighters so at TOC (definitions vary!!), you can jump into one and get an extra day out of your white uniform shirt...

Sydney has a place right across the street from our hotel. It's just past the hair salon on the corner.

Extra day, I can make a uniform shirt last a week.

And ANC has a washer and dryer in the room next to the crew room.
