How To Make Homemade Suction Cup Bottle Holders For Your RV Shower

This post was updated on March 15th, 2024

If there’s one thing lacking in an RV bathroom it’s cabinet storage space. While you could survive with minimal toiletries for a few days, that’s no fun. So how do you store your shampoo, shaving cream, and body wash?

Michaelsaurus came up with a fantastic idea to solve this (never ending) storage problem.

Make Your Own Bathroom Bottle Holders

Using only some hairbands and suction cups, you can make DIY bottle holders that stick right to your shower’s walls. This trick works on both tile and plastic shower stalls.

What you’ll need:

  • pack of suction cups
  • elastic hair bands (you could also use rubber bands, but they will gradually deteriorate in the wet environment)

Total cost? $1-2.

Supplies for DIY bottle holders

Michael said it would be best to use the hair scrunchies that have an outer coating made of plastic. The plastic coating will help the scrunchie grip onto the bottle’s exterior.

Michael removed the hook from the suction cup, and threaded the hair scrunchie through the eye on the face of the cup.

Threading the elastic band through the suction cup

As you thread the scrunchie or rubber band through the opening, be careful not to stress the plastic too much. You could end up breaking the plastic nib on the front, making the suction cup useless.

Wet the back of the suction cup before pressing it against the shower wall. To insert a bottle, simply open the elastic band, and push the bottle through.

Installing homemade suction holders

Open the cap, tilt the bottle and voilà! A homemade suction cup bottle dispenser.

If you have a particularly heavy bottle, you might try using two bands with a couple of suction cups. You’ll be surprised how strong some cheap hair bands and suction cups can be!
