Seal Plastic Bags with Old Bottle Caps
WHO EVER THOUGHT OF THIS SHOULD GET A GREEN MEDAL
WHAT A GREAT IDEA.!! NO MORE TWIST TIES OR RUBBER BANDS. This method is WATER PROOF AND AIR TIGHT. The guy who first thought of the idea should be given an award for originality!!!
Cut up a disposible water bottle & keep the neck & top, as in the photo.
Insert the plastic bag thru the neck & screw the top to seal.
The bag is made to be air-tight, such that water will not
leak, the secret lies with the top & screw cap.This
is a great idea to share. Good for us and the
environment too. Zip-top bags are great, but sometimes
you buy something in bulk and you're stuck with an
unsealable bag. Home-centric blog Re-Nest shows us
an easy way to give these bags an airtight seal with an
old water bottle. All you need to do is cut off the top of
the bottle and take off the cap. Push the bag through
the bottle neck, fold it over the edges, and twist the cap
back on. Now, your bag has an air and water tight seal,
and you didn't have to waste the bag.

PS. my opinion is that to prolong the lifespan of the plastic bag, you seal it closer to the open end at the beginning, & as the contents are used up, you reseal it further & further away from the open end.
