Default Workout clothes on the cruise

This may be kind of a stupid question but a question popped into my head as I was running this morning. I would like to continue to run while on the cruise in March. That leads me to the question about workout clothes and how much to pack/how to clean. I dont want to bring 7 days of clothes with me, not do I want stinky workout clothes hanging around the room.How do others deal with this? rom what I understand you can pay 25.00 to have a small bag of clothes cleaned...thats fine, but I really dont want to do that every day....anybody have any advice?

If you are referring to lycra seperates,then I would wash in the sink roll in a towel,and hang up to dry..this sort of material usually dries quickly.

The 'laundry bag special' is only done once on a 7-night cruise, so you couldn't do it daily anyway, plus it isn't a very big bag.

If your worried about the smell bring along 7 gallon size ziplock bags to store them in after working out. When you get home toss in the laundry.

The large ziplocks are what I use too. Load them up with dirty clothes, sit on them to remove the air and seal them while still sitting on top and they take up less room, as well as not smelling.

Rinse out in shower or sink and hang in shower to dry; easy. That way you need 2 sets, one for alternating days.

Wow! Thatís an interesting question and not at all stupid. If I was at your place firstly, I would take along dark color workout gear and secondly, if they stink a lot I would just take them out from a soapy water and dry them myself.
