Be it to sun-kissed beaches or to snow-covered places, whenever you travel next, ensure to pack little things like safety pins, bandana and duct tape.


Here's a list of a few items that will make everything run more smoothly, reports huffingtonpost.com:

* Bandana: Bandana is loved by many for its versatility. It can be used as a hand towel, lens cleaner, hair tie, headband and scarf. It can also work as a pillow when you tie it around a bundled-up sweater or as a sling for a sprained arm, and even as a handbag.

* Duct tape: Carry a small roll with you to patch tears in shoes, bags, or clothing. You can baby-proof your hotel room by covering outlets and securing drawers shut. It can also hold together a torn guidebook.

* Moist towelettes: Not only can you sanitize your hands and kill germs on tray tables, doorknobs, tabletops, and other public places, you can also use them as a refreshing face cloth.

* Safety pins: It's a multifunctional travel tool. Use in place of a missing button or to mend other wardrobe malfunctions or prevent static cling in a dress or skirt by slipping the safety pin into the seam of your slip as the metal has repelling properties.
