Now some people have tried this where they’ve removed the internals and then when you take the lid off, you can easily see the money. But we want to show you a little additional trick to make it still usable.
Very carefully, completely wine the entire chapstick out. Grab this very carefully. Pull it out.
Now you’re left with some plastic inside there and you’re going to use a knife to carefully pry that out.
and you should see down in the tube that it has a nice little rod that’s used to screw the chapstick up and down.
Now you’re going to get a wooden rod and start carefully rolling the money around the rod.
Now once you get it fully rolled, then carefully take it and make sure you insert it over the rod that is currently in inside the chapstick.
Then you want to take the plastic piece, you want to re-insert it and then you want to take the rest of the chap stick and push it down back into the tube carefully, getting it back to back down into the tube. Don’t try to force it all back into the tube.
Now once it has gone a few turns down in there. You want to take something like a knife, trim it off, wipe off any extra that might be there and now you can continue to use that chapstick. Put the lid back on it.
Now if by chance anybody is nosy and pulls the cap their just going to see a regular tube of chapstick.
10. Hide Money in Soap
the next hiding spot for hiding cash is a bar of soap because a lot of people use it and very few people would even think twice about the money being inside it.
Now very carefully, take a quarter inch drill and drill a hole straight into the center of the bar. Now do this very slowly so you don’t the format or accidentally crack it open.
Once you’re done, you’re left with a nice clean hole that you could shove some stuff in. You can take some rolled up money and carefully push it inside
Once you’ve put the money inside, take some of the soap that was drilled off and gently push those pieces back into the hole, covering the hole.
