Travel tip: free shower caps

Hotel shower caps make wonderful impromptu wrappers.

Technique: open shower cap onto flat surface. Place a single bottle or tube inside each cap. Roll very tightly. As you roll, one by one, bring over all perimeters of cap to cover all ends of your lotions. Take advantage of elastic edge on cap to keep roll secure.

#1 Arriving at high altitude? Pop open your lotions while still within the shower cap wrapper. On arrival, high altitude pressurized lotion spurts will be contained in the wrapper.

#2 Busted plastic eye shadow case? Protect colors from smearing all over the makeup bag. Roll up each tightly in an individual shower cap.

#3 Lost your toothpaste cap? Open the showercap and place center of shower cap over tube opening. Gather up the bulk of the s-c , one in each hand to  twist and roll the cap bunch in each hand into a “rope”. Tie a knot with the “ropes” on front and back of tube, pulling tightly until you run out of showe cap material.

Happy and neat travels!
