Introduction: Travel Safe
Do you ever fear your wallet or cards will get stolen while travelling or staying in a hotel or hostel? I do and had once a part of my cash stolen by a hotel personnel. I now split my resources and keep at different places, bags, on person, but also devised some not so obvious secret stash compartments . One of them is an empty toothpaste tube. It is just laying in your bathroom kit, and not very attractive prize.
In this short tutorial I show how you can use an empty toothpaste or shaving cream tube to create a small hiding place that can hold at least few hundred bucks and can get you out of trouble when you need it the most
Empty or near empty toothpaste / cream tube
Step 1: Find a Tube
Select an empty or almost empty toothpaste or shaving cream or hand cream tube and empty any left over contents
Cut the end of the tube open.
Clean it using water and or paper towel. Make sure you use something long like a spoon to reach the top from the inside. Let let dry naturally or use another paper towel
Stick your cash, jewellery, or even cards ( not all toothpaste are wide enough)
Wrap the end several times and clamp it with a hair pin
You might want to deflate some air out at the end to make it looks like almost empty tube
Step 4: Go Out and See the World
