Did you know that there is the most useful travel accessory that costs nothing? It also takes up hardly any room in your luggage, it’s lightweight and I recommend that you always travel with several of these, whatever your travel plans are. What’s more, you probably have some of these in your home right now.
And you’ll use these whatever style of trip you’re taking – skiing, cruising, a beach vacation, hiking, sailing, cycling, camping, a long haul flight, sightseeing, train travel, RV-ing …..
You can keep them in your suitcase, your pocket, your purse, your backpack, your toiletries bag, your beach bag, the cooler, your picnic hamper…
And you can use them for so many things when you’re travelling, on the beach, at the campsite, on the plane – and for yourself, the kids, your pet…
You’ll see a list of just some of their uses below. But what are these miraculous items? See the video below.
Simple! And just think of the many ways in which you can use them:
- As a garbage container in your car, on the plane or on the train
- To use as dry seating on wet grass
- As a holder for your wet swimsuits, flipflops and towels
- For keeping your equipment dry during water activities
- To separate your dirty laundry from your clean clothes in your suitcase
- To hold your wet umbrella
- As an emergency rainhood
- To use as an impromptu rubber glove to handle anything gross
- For keeping sand out of your tablet or phone at the beach
- To hold your dirty or muddy boots after hiking
- When camping or picnicking hang one on a branch as a garbage container
- Use as waterproof kneepads if you’re kneeling
- As a holder for perfumes and liquids in your luggage – in case of leaks
- For various unpleasant ‘kid emergencies’
- Use to store collections such as shells from the beach
- To hold and pad delicate souvenirs such as china
- Cut into strips to use as impromptu string – for instance to use to tie your hair back
And of course, you can also use them when you’re shopping!
By the way, if you’ve already weaned yourself off the use of plastic bags due to environmental issues you can buy inexpensive biodegradable bags at Amazon.
