Business travelers, rejoice. And then cross laundry and packing off your to-do list.

» What it does: Packnada launders and stores your clothes, then delivers them to your hotel so you can travel light.

» What's hot: The concept seems brilliant. At the conclusion of your business trip, you leave a bag with your hotel concierge with up to 20 items of clothing for Packnada. When you return on another business trip, they're delivered to your hotel. They will also store your favorite toiletries, including soap, shampoo and shaving cream. Say goodbye to hotel products and bring your own. Guess what? Smartphone chargers are also provided. That's smart.

» What's not: This new service is available only in Singapore. Wouldn't it be great if it were available all over the world, especially in the U.S.? Even better, at sliding-scale prices? Should someone who stores three shirts, underwear and socks be charged the same as someone who leaves six of each? Note: They are working hard to open up in more countries.

» Cost: The first two trips are free, then $99 per trip.
