Traveling is always a hassle no matter what fun place you are going to. I just recently took a trip to New York City and packing was a real pain. However, I was able to make my own travel containers to use for toiletries which left one less thing to worry about. These containers fit great into a Ziplock bag for air travel and work well if you need a little bit of multiple products. Check out this easy tutorial and go travel the world.
- Empty bottle (or at least the top of one) with cap
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Plastic (I used the top of a cookie container)
- Recommended: hand saw or knife
THE WATER TEST:
- Before you use your travel container, make sure that it is capable of holding liquids and gels without leaking. To do this, put a little water into the container and put the cap on. Then shake it, flip it, move it all around, assuring that none of the water leaks out. If you find any leaks, fill them in with more glue. You can also lay it upside down and gently press on the bottom to see if any water bubbles out. Once you are sure they are sealed, you are ready to fill them and go.
