Doing laundry before midday of the 10th of Av if traveling

If one is traveling after Tisha B’av and needs to do laundry, may he be lenient to do so before midday of the tenth?

Yes, you may do laundry prior to midday.[1] This especially applies in years that Motzei Tishe Beav falls on Erev Shabbos.[2]
