Your suitcase is meticulously packed--the only thing you still need to squeeze inside are your shoes. But, ew, nestling the dirty treads of your sneaks on the sheer blouse and skirt you’re planning to wear to dinner on Saturday night feels like a terrible idea. Good thing we’ve got a better plan.
What you need: A shower cap. (Hello, there’s a reason you’ve been--or should be--hoarding them every time you stay at a hotel.)
What you do: Tuck your shoes inside it, then place the whole thing inside your bag.
Buh-bye, dirt. The cap acts as a shoe protector so you never find a lick of grime on your chic and pretty “vacation” clothes.
