The Adventure of the Toothpaste Cap

Yesterday morning while I was brushing my teeth, I dropped the cap to the tube of toothpaste. The sink is right next to the laundry closet, so I watched the cap skitter across the floor and disappear into the gap under the laundry closet door.

This is one of those things that is both completely insignificant and quite awkward at one and the same time. I know where the cap must be: it's under the clothes washer! Is it worth moving the washer to get the cap back? Do I even want it back after it has been under there? No, and not really. But on the other hand, there's still a fair bit of toothpaste left in the tube. How do I keep it from drying up without a cap? What else could I put on there to seal it with? Maybe if I stuck the whole thing in a sandwich bag...

Fortunately, when I opened the door, it turned out that the cap was too big to get under the washer, and it was just sitting there in the two inches between the door and the front of the washer. Problem averted!
