Every once in a while, you lose a lid to something important. I once plugged my waterbed with a small lid from a Vicks Vaporub jar. It worked for 6 years.
I have found that the tops of chapstick type lipsticks get lost a lot around kids. I use the tops smaller markers as a replacement. Some of them fit perfectly. I keep a collection of these caps for just such a purpose. The markers quickly dry out when left uncovered so I just recycle them.
When I find good gallon jugs in recycling, I often keep them to put water ahead, or mix weed killer or plant food. But sometimes, the caps are missing. Foil is a great stop gap but not a permanent solution.
