Make your own spill-proof cup

Amazon: Fiskars 12-23518897 Hand Punch, 1/8-Inch, CircleJessica's quick thinking probably saved her serious car and clothing cleanup:

If you buy those single serving plastic drink bottles (Odwalla, for example), use a pocket knife to punch a hole in the lid, insert a straw, and you have an instant spill-resistant drink container.

If you don't carry a pocket knife or other handy hole-puncher, take a lid home, punch it there, then carry it around with you for next time.

Sticking a straw through the hole in a to-go coffee cup lid also works well to prevent spilled drinks.

    Be careful reusing plastic containers that are not designed for it. They are not designed to be sterile and can be germ factories. Its really not a good thing to reuse them, though all of us do it every once in a while.
