Toiletry Travel DIY

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Glad, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #pressnsealhacks

Do you ever worry about your toiletries exploding in your bag when you travel? I know I am always concerned about ruining my clothing and shoes with an exploding toiletry. I am always worried about it because it has happened before.

My mom would always have a toiletry suit case for all these items, but these days with all the extra fees for baggage and ounce limits, you are limited to checking your toiletries in your large suit case.

I started by tightening and closing all the toiletries so that nothing was loose. Also, I locked any pumps that could be locked.

Glad Press'n Seal

Next, I wrapped each toiletry with Glad Press’n Seal that I bought at Walmart. I tried not to waist it and used exactly the amount need to wrap each product entirely.



Finally, I put the toiletries into a Glad Freezer Zipper Gallon Bag for extra protection.

  1. That’s such a great idea. I’ve used Press N’ Seal for all kinds of things, but never packing. This looks like it will work perfectly.

  2. I really like the Glad Press and Seal but I’ve never thought about using it like this. Now you have me thinking what else I can do with it!

  3. This is such a good idea! It is a disaster when stuff leaks all over your luggage! I will have to keep this in mind the next time I travel.

  4. Very smart to keep it wrapped up! The mess that could possibly happen would be such a nightmare, great way to have things protected.

  5. Oh how awesome. I wouldn’t ever think to wrap it all up. Very smart. I remember as a kid on vacations and things would explode and be all over. This is so clever!

  6. Wrapping them using Glad is a great idea. From now on, I will wrap my toiletries with this instead of regular plastic bags. Thanks for sharing.

  7. This is such a great idea. I have always used baggies, but I hate wasting them because I throw them away after we get there and it feels like money down the drain! I am doing this for our next camping trip. Thanks for the awesome idea!

  8. Yup, I have experience a mess like that and it’s awful especially if they get to everything in the bag. thanks for the tips!

  9. I don’t usually bring much that can leak just because of the leaking worry – I never thought of this really great idea! And Glad is such a fab product! Thx for the ideas 🙂

  10. This is a good idea. I am super paranoid about my shampoo bottles exploding so I usually tape the top down with masking tape and then put them in ziplock bags. (Told you I was paranoid. haha). But this press n’ seal idea looks much simpler and I can ALWAYS use the extra space in my luggage.

  11. This is a trick I’d use. And hurrah for pump locks, those are a great invention when it comes to taking items with you while traveling.
