My first official post of 2010 and I ran into writer’s block! No kidding.
So instead of blathering on, I’m going to show you a little tip I learnt from my McGyver Dad on how to secure your check-in luggage when you find yourself without a spare lock.
Use dental floss!
Dental floss is very strong and if you tie a double dead knot, it’ll hold long enough for you to get home. Its not fool proof but you’ll know when its been pulled apart or tampered with. Of course, it can be cut open but so can locks. Its only meant to be a temporary measure anyway.
After all most of us will have dental floss in our toiletry bags right? Right?!
Tip: Unwaxed dental floss works better to secure luggage
So, the next time you forget to pack a spare lock for your spare luggage bag to return after your holiday, fret not. Its dental floss to the rescue! I love my McGyver Dad!
I’m off to meet with friends for a good old fashioned brunch and chat. Its going to be so much fun
What are your weekend plans? If you are travelling, stay safe!
