dokodemo cap

IMG_3445 What do you do when you open a package that doesn't have a "zip" type top?

Put several rubber bands around it to close it? Put a clip on it?

Well, I recently found this gadget at the 100 yen shop. And it is called the "dokodemo cap".

IMG_3446 You may or may not know about the dokodemo door from Doraemon, a Japanese cartoon. (It is a door that allows you to go anywhere.)

This cap allows you to put a cap pretty much anywhere. The gadget itself is 3 parts, one for the inside of the bag, one for the outside and then the cap itself. Best part is that it is made in Japan.

So far, I have only used it for my rice. I swear the Japanese have gadgets for everything.

Ooh fun, I like it! I also like our AnyLock bag sealers, which don't seem to be as readily available in the States as they are in Japan.

It looks like something that would be useful for bags with liquid contents since the cap is round. I use everything from rubber bands, scotch tape and clips, but for the most part I usually store opened stuff in plastic containers or glass jars.

I've seen hacks for this with people cutting the tops off of bottles, but this looks much better (and safer) haha. Also, I love Doraemon!!

I should check out anylock bag sealers too, LJ :)

Thanks PA!

I don't know if liquids may leak, Rowena, will let you know if I try :)

definitely safer, K :)

Take care everyone!
