Cheap Shower Caps for Food Covers


You know those elasticized plastic covers that you can buy for covering bowls in the refrigerator? I just found that my favorite dollar store sells eight shower caps for--yes--one dollar! They fit the top of the largest container, and they are also the ideal covering for a cut watermelon. Both sturdy and washable, they also come in a variety of designer pastel colors (-: I don't know how much those other covers cost, but I'll bet you can't get eight for a dollar.

Shower-Cap Food Covers

Show-caps are NOT made of food appropriate plastic and should NOT be used on food products. The FDA allows only certain materials to be used in and around food. There could be a film on the caps or it may release odors that would contaminate any food in contact with the shower cap. (08/09/2004)

I have used them for years and years. Just wash them good in hot soapy water first . Nearly everything we touch in this world can be bad for us if we don't use good sense!! (09/07/2004)

o need to buy those expensive plastic food covers, Most dollar stores sell disposable shower caps. You can get like a dozen of them for a buck. These are SO very handy. HUGE savings.

Cool - I'm going to use them for my self-cleaning litterbox. The brand-name bags cost a lot - and these will work just fine! (12/09/2005)

I have been looking for those shower cap-like plastic covers for years now. I remember them from when I was a kid. The disposable ones that are sold in the grocery stores are way too expensive and one throws them away. The ones my mother had were reusable. Does anyone know where I can buy them?

Thanks. (01/02/2006)

Thank you, thank you! I bought the plastic covers at Walmart for a time then suddenly they were gone, (discontinued I guess, No one seems to know) I don't remember who made them. I cannot find them in the grocery stores. Your solution is a good one. (05/03/2006)

I thought I was the only one searching for these silly wonderful time savers. Why did they stop making them? I went to Australia & found some made by BAYSIKS (9 for $2) & I brought home 6 packs & am ready to find more. (10/16/2007)
