Travelon laundry soap leaves--opinions?

We're traveling carry on only and I was looking at Travelon's laundry soap leaves. Has anyone tried these?

Thanks

They work fine - and at only about $3 for 50 leaves they are pretty cheap as specialized travel items go. It does take a few leaves to wash more than a couple of small items though.

But I personally usually just use shampoo or buy a small bottle of liquid detergent once I get there.

I can't speak for Travelon leaves, but we used Gel de lavage a la main (bought at Champion, their brand) and it worked well for hand-washing things in the sink.

Thanks for your suggestions. Think I just won't worry about it until I get there.

I buy Woolite in small foil packets in the travel section of our local drug stores. I don't like to use shampoo as some contain a conditioner that doesn't rinse out easily.

If you're talking about hand washing in the sink, I just use the hotel provided shampoo.

Connie. Isn't it amazing the items that Travelon has thought of in terms of travel.
I considered the shampoo and conditioner leaves as the places we stay in might not provide shampoo and consitioner.
They even have gel tooth tablets that disolve in water.
Amazing.

Ignore my spelling mistakes. Typing too fast, I guess.

Connie: We've usually done carry-on, and much of our overseas travel is "adventure"--hiking/biking--that produces rather sweaty clothing.

Even before the liquid travel restrictions, we've been packing a ziplock baggies of powdered Tide. A little goes a long way, and it does a really good job, even on white biking socks.

I'm glad to know that powdered detergent will work. I had read here that it would not. I'll just pack a little of that.

Thanks everyone.
