If there’s one downside to traveling, it’s the whole dirty-clothes issue. Unless you’re staying at a dreamy Airbnb, there’s a good chance your itinerary doesn’t include access to a washer and dryer, meaning it won’t take long for your suitcase to start smelling a little, uhh, funky—especially if you’re working out on the regular. In fact, that stench can easily transfer to the clean items you haven’t even worn yet. So how do you keep your entire suitcase from smelling gross on the road?

Wellness blogger (and pro-traveler!) Alison Wu recently shared a tip that will keep your perfectly packed carry-on (stinky clothes, included!) as aromatic as a bouquet of your favorite blooms. Literally. In a recent blog post, Wu says her trick involves just two items: “Pack a small muslin bag or two filled with dried lavender flowers—also known as a drawer sachet—to keep your clothes smelling fresh while you’re away,” she writes.

Yep, banishing the memory of both a stale suitcase stench and that not-so-pleasant aroma of dirty clothes is as easy and simple as packing a cute bag of dried flowers. Plus, aside from the odor-relieving benefits, you’ll also gift yourself some relaxing vibes; taking a whiff of lavender might help assuage some travel-related stress and anxiety. Basically, you’d be wise to never again take a trip without it.

Here are 35 travel hacks that will make your next vacay the healthiest one yet. Or, find out how you can make frothy matcha on the go.
