I saw a post on here once about little dividers to put into your medicine cabinet so things won't fall over. I have searched til I am blue in the face and cannot locate it. Does anyone have a pic or detailed description of what to use for this purpose? Thanks!

I use gravity. When I get to where I am going, I stand them all up.

We place a towel in the bathroom sink and lay them there till we get to where we are going. I would be very interested in anything that would hold things in place but have never seen anything that will work yet.

KISS and if it really bothers you cut some small pieces of foam and use those to keep things from falling over. My MC is always full so I don't have this problem. I also have a bunch of temp shelves see below that we keep all sorts of extra towels, and a bunch of stuff in.



If we want to use the tub/shower it's like a 30 sec job to just move those shelves and that board to the bedroom bed. It also has ridden fine then and not moved or the drawer opened now in almost 7,000 miles of towing and some of which on a few really rough state roads up in Me last month.

We dont usually keep breakables in the medicine cabinet, toothbrushes toothpaste bar soap, stuff like that. If your worried about spillage I would consider putting a plastic ice cream tub with a lid in the bath, any spillage will be contained and you ll know were everything is.

We use plastic tubs in the medicine cabinet (reuse the ones that hold baby wipes), put labels on them: first aid, sun block/insect repellant, his, hers, hers, hers... etc. and they keep loose things contained.

I use thin plastic trays I found at Walmart. They are narrow enough to fit in the medicine cabinet and then the loose items go inside of them.

My solution is to pack it full so there's no room for anything to fall over. Stock up ahead on items &/or insert plastic cups. Works great.
