Prevent Bottles from Exploding While Traveling
Tired of opening your suitcase after a flight to find your toiletry bag full of gooey shampoo? Alexandra Jimenez, editor and founder of the Travel Fashion Girl blog, has a simple solution.

Try It: Just remove the cap from the bottle, place a small square of plastic wrap over the opening, and replace the cap.

Why It Works: Changes in air pressure during travel can expand and contract plastic bottles. The plastic wrap acts as a seal to prevent leaks. (Jimenez also suggests only filling your bottles 2/3 of the way to avoid problems.)
