Dreft stain remover is a miracle worker.

My DH and me have found that it takes out almost any stain without yellowing or fading the fabric. It saved us a fortune in clothes when we had our DD.

I know this may sound crazy, but my DH has to bring his own toilet paper. He does it for every vacation we go on. He refuses to use the TP in the rooms.

So it is a must on our list.

We treat it as we treat all electronics or other things of value: keep it in your carryon luggage.

I just have to chime in with something that happened on my Feb trip to WDW and going on the Disney Dream.

We packed 3 LL Bean rolling duffels, one for me, DH and DD each. When we arrived at MCO there were only 2 bags. The missing bag had all my clothing and toiletry bags for the whole family. American Airlines didn't find my bag until late that night, and it turned up in Guatemala! The 9 hours it was missing was horrible, would I have to replace all my clothing before we left on the Dream? I already lost one day at WDW (airline kept saying "it should be on the next flight from Miami"), now I might lose part of another day! Once the bag was found, it took an entire day to get to MCO and was finally delivered at my hotel at 10:30pm. I was very lucky I got it in time for the cruise and nothing was missing. I also lucked out that at the last minute I did a load of laundry before leaving and put a pair of my jeans and 4 pairs of underpants in DD's bag, so I only had to buy a t-shirt and toiletries to get by until the bag arrived. When my bag did arrive, it still had the 'MCO' tag that was placed on it in Boston, so I have no clue how in the heck it ended up in Gautemala.

Lesson learned... Never, ever, ever again will I fly with out 'cross packing' all our bags. On our next trip 1/3 of my clothes is going in each bag, and the same for DD and DH! I'll bring 3 swimsuits for each of us, one is going in each bag- same for underwear, tees, shorts, etc! I use packing cubes so I'll just set up a little assembly line. If we end up with a lost bag we will at least have more than the clothing on our backs! Trust me, it stinks shopping for clothes 30 minutes before the Gap outlet closes for the evening, when you would rather be at Wishes!
Something very similar happened to my DB and DSIL on their trip to Dominican Republic. Their daughter's suitcase was left at the airport somehow and it took an entire day to go back there and find out where it was. Not to mention another $100 in cab fees. I, too, cross-packed for our trip (which is in 3 days!): goodvibes

Cross packing is the way to go. I also put a days change of clothes in each carry-on...JUST IN CASE...

I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. ♥ Bring back VMK ! Ooo 11:11, Make a Wish! ;)
