Ever go through the drive-thru at starbucks (or another coffee shop) and forget to get a stopper/spill stick (or they run out!) Don’t try to keep driving and hope it won’t spill. Everyone knows cleaning cupholders is terribly difficult, and holding it still just burns your hand.
Anywho, I was surprised by the number of people at work who would freak out if we ran out…so we taught them this!
Grab a small piece of paper.
Fold it length wise
Then in half.
Shove the creased part into the little hole.
Ta-dah! Make shift spill stick/stopper
It works great for the short time it takes to get home…but paper obviously isn’t a long term fix (let me remind you what the paper part of a sucker looks like by the end. No one wants paper in their drink)
However, if you’re at starbucks, ask for a sample straw or a sticker. They always have those lying around, and it makes a more water proof stopper. Just fold the straw in half, and you are good to go!
