Clothes to Pack for a 3 Day Beach Vacation

*This is a sponsored post with Persil® ProClean Discs™

I’ve got to be honest with you, I hate doing laundry—hate it. Over the past few days I’ve done approximately 9 million loads for my family of 5 with Persil® ProClean® Discs™ because we’re going on vacation! You know how that goes, right? Even though we’re only going for a few days, I still needed all the laundry to be uber clean because nobody likes to come home to dirty clothes piled up into a heap. But also, I needed to pack for pretty much everyone including myself. Yay!

Here's what I'm packing on my beach vacation! Plus, some tips on what I do to keep my clothes fresh on the go.

It only took a few days to accomplish. That is not even the slightest bit of an exaggeration. We’re headed to the beach you guys! Not Hawaii…South Padre. Close second (obviously). But we’re staying in a condo that does have a laundry machine, so, the good news about these Persil Discs I found at Walmart is that they are super travel friendly (no thank you powder or liquid). I actually bought the smaller package of them because they fit easily into my luggage. And, these discs clean clothes like a boss…almost like I hired someone to do my dirty work.

They dissolve in any water temperatures and work in all machine types, including HE! Side note: I can handle washing the laundry. I can even handle folding them while watching my new favorite tv show. I LOVE the smell and feel of dry laundry fresh out of the dryer. However —It’s the putting away of the clothes piled high in a laundry basket that kills my very soul. Anybody else feel me on that? Nobody ever said I didn’t have a flare for the dramatics. Anyway, here are my tips for packing clothes for your entire family of 5. You ready?

I like to keep everything really basic. And, since I am staying in a condo, I just bring the Persil Discs if I need to wash anything for me, my kids, or the huz. I used to be a total over-packer, but, now since I am a mom of three babes, I like to simplify and pair down. Also, I don’t want to come home and have to do more laundry. No thanks. I try and leave my vacation with clean clothes once again…thus, packing Persil® ProClean® Discs™ like a true professional parent.

Are you going on any small beach vacations?
