Mrs. Fixit: Plastic Bag Reuses

Sunday, June 23, 2013

As a nation, we use about 100-billion plastic bags a year and they just keep multiplying. But, how can we reuse these?!

When packing a suitcase, slip your extra shoes in a plastic grocery bag to protect your clothes from dirt.

Pack a few extra bags to use for your dirty clothes on the way home or wet bathing suits.

Painting a room? Use a plastic grocery bag to line the paint pan!

And speaking of painting, if you're taking a break, wrap your brush or roller in a plastic bag to keep it from drying up. It'll last until you get back.

Reuse a plastic grocery bag to line a small trash can.

Keep a few near the door to slip over muddy shoes, if you have to tramp thru the house.

And if you still have unused bags, use a tissue box or wipes container as a plastic bag dispenser.

And one last tip.. if you find yourself with a knotted plastic bag just keep twisting the loose end until its nice and tight and then push it through.

Easy enough?? Not gone! I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
