Reuse your old shower cap

Hello! Happy New Year plastic free crusaders. I am excited to start this year, with a fun idea on how to reuse shower caps.

This is an idea I discovered while I was packing for our road trip to Jervis Bay over the holiday season.

I have been wearing a shower cap since I was a little girl. They are usually of the cheap pharmacy or supermarket variety. And after a while, the elastic keeping the plastic on my head, looses its shape. I couldn't find somewhere to recycle mine so I figured they would make great use holding my shoes in a suitcase or backpack when I travel. Usually I would use plastic bags to stop my shoes rubbing dirt onto my clothes. But this works great.

Reuse your old shower cap

Now I need to find a plastic free shower-cap...

    I bought this one and have been very happy with it. The elastic is very sturdy, but should it ever stretch, I'm sure I could use rudimentary sewing skills to tighten or replace it. There were several other Etsy shops with caps made of other materials as well.
