5 More Things To Do with Plastic Bags
You’ve probably got a drawer full of them, so put those extra plastic bags to work with these practical and easy ideas.
1. Replace a Mixing Bowl
If you’re cooking for a crowd and are short on mixing bowls, try using a plastic bag instead. Place all the dry ingredients to be mixed in the bag, gather it up and gently shake. If the ingredients are wet, use your hands to mix.
2. Line a Cracked Flower Vase
Grandmother’s beautiful flower vase is a sight to behold when it’s filled with posies. The problem is the vase leaks from a large crack that runs its length. Line the vase with a plastic bag before you fill it with water and add the bouquet, giving fresh life to a treasured heirloom.
3. Protect Hands when Cleaning Toilet
When cleaning your toilets with a long-handled brush or a shorter tool, first wrap your hand in a used plastic bag. You’ll be able to do the appropriate scrubbing without your hand getting dirty in the process.
4. Treat Chapped Hands
If your hands are cracked and scaly, try this solution. Rub a thick layer of petroleum jelly on your hands. Place them in a plastic bag. The jelly and your body’s warmth will help make your hands supple in about 15 minutes.
