One for the weekend: a secret weapon for breadmaking

So you’re making a batch of bread at home and need to let it rise under plastic.  You could tear off a whole new sheet of plastic wrap, or you could wrap the bowl in a plastic grocery bag: these both work just fine.  But my secret weapon is the humble hotel-provided complimentary shower cap.

Showercaps

It’s elastic, so it snaps right over the bowl.  You’re probably not going to actually use it as a shower cap.  It can be used over and over and over.  And if you don’t stay in hotels often (couch surfers represent!), a word to the family and friends network can reward you with shower caps from all over the world.

Full disclosure: like many things bread-related, I learned this trick from my mom.  Hi mom!
