Shower caps are inexpensive and very useful when packing luggage for putting your shoes inside. I also use a shower cap to cover my bicycle seat when it's raining and clear shower caps are handy to cover plates of food when dining al fresco!

When you stay at some motels they will give you a complimentary shower cap. After your stay, put that cap over the sun visor in your car so you don't get it dirty or finger stained over time.

Uses for Hotels and Motel Shower Caps

Use them to cover leftover food in your refrigerator. Years ago you could buy "bowl covers". I'm sure they still have them but they are not that easy to buy. Plus you have to pay for them. So why not use your freebies. After a use, wash them out with warm water and a bit of dishwashing detergent, dry well and reuse. An economical freebie.

Uses for Shower Caps

I use shower caps when I paint my rooms (ie: painting the ceiling). It's quick and easy and prevents lots of splatters in my hair.

Uses for Shower Caps

Another idea (seen on this website) is to put two disposable shower caps near the door. If you need to come through the house to get something while gardening, for example, just slip a shower cap over each shoe- no need to take off your shoes to avoid tracking in dirt, grass clippings (06/28/2005)
