Let he or she who has never taken anything from a hotel cast the first toiletry. Who can honestly say that they’ve never taken something from their hotel room? You obviously can’t take the expensive stuff like the TV set or you’ll get caught. You can’t even take a towel without having your credit card billed at a later time. The things that are okay to take with you include those tiny bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, notepaper, pens, postcards, and envelopes. But there's one thing that you will have to remember to take: the hotel shower cap. Why? Because you can use it for a myriad of things.
You can use a shower cap to keep your food cold when you head out to the park to have a picnic.
Add some ice into the shower cap. Then stick a bowl of food inside the cap. But make sure that the elastic stretches all the way around the bowl. This will keep your food cold for a couple of hours until you get hungry.
It allows your toddler to try solid food without getting way too messy when they throw food around.
Is your little prince or princess ready to try eating on their own? Well, chances are that they’re going to start playing with their food or hurling food around. So, you might want to put a shower cap on their head first. This ensures you won’t have to clean food out of their hair afterwards.

Cover your shoes with a shower cap before you stick them inside the luggage with all of your clothes.
You walked all around town on your vacation, so the soles of your shoes probably picked up all sorts of stuff like mud and dog doodoo. You certainly don’t want any of those things touching your sweaters, shirts, or pants, do you?

A shower cap can also protect your shoes before you step into something you’ll probably regret.
Embrace your inner CSI investigator and put a shower cap on each shoe. This will allow you to walk around in the rain, or in a dusty area, like a construction site, without damaging your expensive heels or white sneakers.
