Use a shower cap!

It’s free if you can collect them from your hotel stays. And it works perfectly. Plus, their reusable!

It’s also super handy for covering a paper plate of food or other dishes that don’t hold plastic wrap well.

 Problem solved!

  1. I take watermelon off the Rhine and cut into small pieces
    and put it in cheap plastic bags takes up less room in the refrigerator

  2. Great idea – but I would worry about the plastic not being food-grade. If it is something that concerns you, a sheet of plastic wrap could be placed underneath the shower cap.

  3. This is a brilliant idea! It’s one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?” ideas! hahaha… I’m totally gonna remember to save those shower caps that I ” most def. PAY” for and usually leave in my hotel rooms because I always think…I don’t need to collect more junk. But I will now put these babies to good use! đŸ™‚

  4. It is something you would have to buy, but once you buy it is reusable, but Glad (and probably some other brands and non-brands) make different size dish covers that are basically just different size shower caps. I bought a bag of several different sizes and use them to cover any dish that doesn’t have a lid. They are great! I think you find them in the same aisle as plastic wrap and aluminum foil.

  5. I wish I had thought of this when we were actually staying in hotels. Oh well. Maybe a cheap shower cap or two from a Dollar store will work as well. Thank you! What a great idea. :o)
