Bathing Cap Reuse

Ever upcycled an old bathing cap into something newly useful? We’d love to know what you’ve done with yours, whether it’s made from silicone, neoprene, Lycra, or latex.

In the meantime, if you’re looking to recycle a latex bathing cap, send it to the XTERRA Eco Team at where they’re working on turning latex swim caps into flip flops.

    Hi I am looking for some older strap style caps. I had major shoulder surgery and am about to start aquatic therapy. I have an above ground pool and could use some caps for
    guests to use. I am looking for us royal or howland type caps. I am not worried about color, pattern, etc. I have looked everywhere and can’t find anything! I am also looking for a couple of red rubber inner tubes. Please help me!!!

What can you add? Please share your ideas.
