If you’ve ever found a sticky mess in your bathroom cabinet, you know that shampoo bottles can be like little time bombs of messiness. So if the thought of a shampoo bottle leaking all over everything makes you want to pull your hair out, here are some easy ways to make sure that never happens again:
Rubber bands are a great solution to keep shampoo from leaking. Rubber bands are inexpensive, and they can be used in many different ways. One of the easiest ways to use rubber bands is to wrap them around the bottom of the bottle and then place it back in your cabinet. This will ensure that when you open your cabinet door or drawer, all of your bottles stay put.
If you don’t have a rubber band but do have some aluminum foil, you can also use that. Just cover the top of your shampoo bottle with a piece of aluminum foil and secure it tightly with a rubber band. If you find that the foil isn’t tight enough to prevent leakage, try using plastic wrap instead—it will be more sturdy than aluminum foil.
If you’re tired of your shampoo bottle leaking in your bathroom cabinet, try using a hair clip to hold the cap. Hair clips can also be used to hold the bottle and even the bottle cap. This is a great solution for those who want to keep their countertops dry but don’t want to risk losing their hair clip in between uses. If this sounds like something that would work for you, start by clipping one side of the plastic bottle onto a metal hook on top of your shower head (or wherever else) with an alligator-style clamp. Then attach another hook at an angle with some clear twine and wrap it around until it’s nice and taut against both sides of whatever’s hanging down there—like maybe even some kind of hacky sack!
Travel bottles are also an option, but they can be difficult to find. They’re also harder to use, as you have to squirt the shampoo into your hand and then apply it. Cleaning them is a pain, too; I always end up getting water in my eyes while cleaning the bottles because they don’t have any caps or covers on them. Also, when you’re done using them, you have to find somewhere else to store them other than your bathroom cabinet or shower caddy.
Bubble wrap and a rubber band
If you want to try the bubble wrap method, here’s what you need to do:
- Take a rubber band and place it on top of your shampoo bottle.
- Wrap bubble wrap around the bottom half of your shampoo bottle and secure it with another rubber band. The rubber bands should be tight enough so they don’t fall off easily.
You can also use other types of plastic wraps that have similar properties as bubble wrap (such as Glad Press ‘n Seal). Wrapping with these products may be easier than using bubble wrap because there isn’t any chance for them to bunch up around your bottles or get tangled up in each other inside your cabinet!
If you’re tired of your shampoo bottle leaking in your bathroom cabinet, there are a few things that you can do to avoid the mess:
- Use a rubber band to cover the opening. A simple rubber band will keep liquids from spilling out of your bottle and onto your countertop or floor.
- Insert the rubber band into the cap so that it is flush with the top of the bottle and fully covers what would otherwise be an open hole at its peak (see image below). If this does not work, proceed to step 3!
These tips will help keep shampoo from leaking in your bathroom.
- Use a rubber band to hold it together.
- Use aluminum foil to cover the opening.
- Use a hair clip to hold the cap on.
- Try travel bottles for your shampoo and conditioner (this is what I do).
