It looks like ordinary plastic wrap, but it's not. It's free, it's user-friendly, and it ranks right up there with wooden spoons and measuring cups as an essential for everyone's kitchen. It's the shower cap! I have a drawer full of these ugly, flimsy shower caps (procured from many a hotel stay) and I use them for everything from wrapping up leftovers in the fridge to covering the smoke detector when I'm cooking up a hot mess. In the summer, they're perfect for picnics for keeping flies off your food. Even though I have no shortage of shower caps, I find myself using the same ones over and over again for the last year. They hold up surprisingly well and I no longer get tangled up in impossible sticky wrap! Has anyone else discovered this handy accessory yet?
