I just had the opportunity to try Purex Ultrapacks, which are a new gel pack laundry product. They would be a great product to use for timeshare travel, since they are small enough to include in a Ziploc bag. I am not sure if they are in the market inb all areas yet, but they would be a great.addition to your timeshare pack list! I thought that they worked very well.

I'll have to look for those. I tried the sheet things that are all in one, use them in the washer and then in the dryer but found they left spots on some of my clothes. Not permanent spots but annoying.

BevL - Have you tried cutting them in half? We found that for the smaller TS w/d, half a sheet is plenty. They are also non-liquid, and lighter for travel.

BXian, these are a great idea! I have often thought that they should package them like they do dishwasher detergent. Haven't seen them yet in Canada. Were they the focus of a product test? I can't wait to see them here on the shelves.

I used this tip on our last couple timeshare vacations. A full sheet is far too much for the small washers in most timeshares. Half of one is perfect.

We used a few of them when we went to St John and they seemed to work pretty well. haven't seen them in the store yet, though.

We have them in middle Tennessee. Used them several times. Besure to follow the directions on the package.
