Traveling this summer? Be sure to have disposable shower caps on hand!
Below are 10 creative uses for those versatile caps.
Don't forget to grab a free one when offered at your hotel!
|1. Shoe Packing
Shoes easily pick up chemicals and dirt. Keep the rest of your suitcase clean by wrapping your shoes in a shower cap.
|2. Camera Cover/Filter
Headed to the beach? Sitting by the pool? Caught in a rainstorm? Grab a shower cap to protect your camera. Or place the shower cap over the lens to create a softening filter.
|3. Pet Waste
Bringing your dog along for the journey? You have simple disposable bags at your fingertips!
|4. Remote Cover
What's the number one source of pathogenic bacteria in a hotel room? Pathogens love hiding in the crevasses of the remote. Why not add a layer of protection?
|5. Toiletry Packaging
Combine your favorite shampoo, toothpaste, etc. and roll together with the shower cap.
|6. Cell Phone Cover
A shower cap offers ideal cell phone protection at the beach or by the pool.
|7. Ice Pack
Someone sprain their ankle or take a fall? Fill a shower cap with hotel ice for immediate treatment.
|8. Food Storage
Do you have leftovers from your Chinese dinner? Pop on the shower cap and keep in your hotel fridge. Or fill a shower cap with a snack for the next day's travel.
|9. Laundry Supplies
Portion individual loads of detergent in small Ziploc bags and combine with an ample supply of quarters. Throw in a wool dryer ball for a chemical-free fabric softener!
When all else fails, include some string in your suitcase so when bad weather keeps the family indoors, you can make a fun parachute!
