Mum reveals 1p hack to stop holiday spillages – and it’s so clever people can’t stop talking about it | The Sun

A SAVVY mum has revealed a smart way to stop your toiletries from leaking in the suitcase when you go on holiday.

The woman, called Casey, revealed in a video on TikTok how she uses balloons to stop spillages.

Captioning the post, the packing whizz wrote: "I hate when you get abroad, and you check your suitcase and all your toiletries have exploded everywhere.

"I think it's due to the air pressure in the plane. Try this hack cut a balloon, cut in half and pop over your toiletries."

In the clip, she can be seen demonstrating how she cuts a balloon – that's not yet been blown up – in half.

She then attaches the upper half to the top of a shower gel bottle, which keeps the lid securely in place as it travels on the plane.


I found a camping essential every mum needs to pack – it only costs £1

Once you've made it to your destination abroad, you can throw away the balloon.

A bag of balloons can be bought for £1.50 for 25 at Tesco, making them 6p each – and affordable to use across several products you want to pack.

Her tip has gone down well with viewers, and has been 'liked' by more than 470 people.
