Stick a Sock Over It

I purchased acrylic beverage cups for use in our RV. While unbreakable, they can get scratch marks where they rub against other cups or the cabinet walls.

To protect them when traveling, I slip an inexpensive  knee-high stocking over each one. The nylon stockings stretch over most cup sizes and shapes. I use the same method to keep our glass wine goblets from breaking. The stockings even fit over coffee mugs and flower vases.

I bought a box of 10 pairs of knee-high stockings — 20 individual stockings — for about $8. That’s cheap protection for about 40 cents per cup.
