After lots of searching for the perfect handbag (which could be a post in itself), I finally found one. There was just one problem, this bag was made of soft leather. In other words, this handbag could soak up dirt quicker than a toddler in a mud puddle. That combined with me having to set it on the ground created a real dilemma. My solution, the shower cap hack!
Out of necessity, I came up with the idea of covering my handbag with a shower cap anytime I set it down on the ground. When I’m not using the shower cap, I just turn it inside out and keep it in my bag. So far, the only drawback from this hack is my family making fun of the shower cap. I think I can live with that.
*If you have a larger handbag, I recommend using a stretch to fit food cover (basically a giant shower cap).
