After your holiday meal and while you’re packing leftovers, consider this FUN alternative to sealing a bag full of goodies.
NO MORE TWIST TIES OR RUBBER BANDS.
How to seal a bag and make it air-tight!
1. Cut a disposable water bottle as in photo.
2. Keep the neck and top.
3. Insert the plastic bag through the neck.
4. Screw the top to seal.
The bag can be made air-tight, so that water will not leak.
The secret lies with the top and screw!
TCV’s Own Test Results
After doing our own test, The Caregiver’s Voice recommends curling back the cut portion of the bottle; otherwise, you may puncture the bag as you press down the sharp-cut edge over the contents of a light-weight bag.
This works more easily with thin sandwich-type bags like the one in the photo. Anything thicker has too much mass to easily screw the top closed.
A great environmentally green alternative for grain-based items such as cereal, noodles, popcorn, and rice.
Thank you, Sharon Price, for sharing this green idea!
