When you are packing for a vacation or a business trip, and whether it is going to be a long flight or just for a couple of hours, you can’t help but pack everything, even the things that may not be useful.
But today, we will make you add one more item that is so cheap but extremely needed: Duct tape. You never know because it can truly save the day, the vacation, and maybe, your life.
There are endless ways to use duct tape when you are on the road, like blocking unwanted light or stopping a sunscreen bottle from leaking. A few dollars to buy duct tape can also save you from wasting hundreds of dollars during your trip. Do you want to know how?
Fix a broken backpack or a suitcase
Imagine you are in an airport of a new, foreign country, getting ready to live your best life, but suddenly, your suitcase/backpack get ripped from a side or got a damaged handle.
The first thought you will have is that you need to purchase a new one, therefore, losing a lot of cash that you anticipated to use for your own leisure time. But if you have duct tape, you can repair it quickly.
This way you will guarantee to go through the airport without thinking about your pink underwear spilling out. Plus, the duct tape can hold for the rest of your trip if you used it right!
Block unwanted light
There are many hotels rooms with curtains that don’t cover the entire window, letting the morning light creep in, which could be good for some people.
But if you are anything like me, you would want to wake up comfortably because you are on a vacation, and no light is allowed to disturb your sleep!
