Similar to our Lip Balm Cash Stash hint, an empty sunscreen stick makes for a great secret hiding place for cash, too. Use a long nail and cotton swabs to scrape out any leftover sunscreen from the container. Then dip a cotton swab in soapy water and wipe out the tube some more. Dish soap works best because it cuts through the greasy residue from the sunscreen. Once the container is squeaky clean, let it dry out completely.
Then roll up a few bills, slide them into the empty sunscreen stick and replace the cap. Not only is the tube small enough to fit in a pocket or beach bag, it’ll also fool any potential thieves. No one wants to steal a used stick of sunscreen!
