Help keep your clothing crease free as you travel by packing individual items in tissue paper. Clothes that benefit from a tissue paper wrap include everything from delicates to evening wear. The tissue paper helps keep the clothes from being crushed in the suitcase. Packing clothes in tissue paper is not rocket science; the end result is worth the extra time and attention.

Instructions

    Packing Shirts

  1. 1

    Place an unfolded sheet of tissue paper on a flat surface. Place an unfolded shirt on top of the tissue.

  2. 2

    Fold the arms of the shirt onto the front of the shirt. Fold the sides of the tissue paper over the shoulder line and down the side of the shirt. Place a new sheet of tissue paper on top of the shirt.

  3. 3

    Fold the bottom half of the shirt, the shirt sleeves and the tissue paper beneath it up to lay on top of the middle of the shirt. Fold the top half of the shirt and the tissue paper beneath it over to rest on top of the folded bottom half of the shirt. The shirt is surrounded by tissue paper. Place it in the suitcase.

    Packing Pants

  1. 1

    Place an unfolded sheet of tissue paper on a flat surface. Hold the waistband of the trousers sideways so the legs fall together with the creases on the outside edges. Place the waistband on top of the centre of the tissue paper.

  2. 2

    Fold the sides of the tissue paper over the waistband. Place another sheet of tissue paper on top of the trousers so the entire top section of the trousers is covered with tissue.

  3. 3

    Fold the pant legs up to rest on top of the tissue paper. The bottom of the legs will likely extend beyond the top edge of the tissue.

  4. 4

    Place another layer of tissue paper on top of the pant legs. Fold the bottom of the pant legs down to rest on top of the tissue. Place another sheet of tissue paper on top of the trousers to separate them from other clothes in the suitcase.

    Packing Other Clothes

  1. 1

    Place an unfolded sheet of tissue paper on a flat surface. Place a single undergarment or other small clothing item on top of the tissue, to one side.

  2. 2

    Fold the free side of the tissue paper over on top of the clothing item. Place another garment on top of the folded tissue.

  3. 3

    Place one side of an unfolded sheet of tissue on top of the garment. Add another garment and fold the tissue paper over it. Continue to stack the garments and tissue paper as needed. Place the packet inside the suitcase.
