I received an email from an aunt today about resealing a plastic bag using the neck and cap off of a plastic water bottle. Some of you may have seen this email or this tip on the internet.
The guy who came up with this green way to seal a bag should patent pend his idea. Then again, it’s out on the internet for people to use already and someone will probably beat him to the punch.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably lost the twist ties or plastic flat clips at some point after opening a loaf of bread, bagels, muffins, and other bags with these types of closures. This may a great way to reuse the plastic water bottles, sodas and other tops of bottles to have a way to reseal the bags mentioned. If you decide to use it one loaves of bread and other baked goods in bags, the bottle top would have to unscrewed and the neck removed to get at the bread items.
In the email, there were photos of how he cut the top of the water bottle off and after it was attached to a bag. While he didn’t use it on a loaf of bread, he did show how to seal a baggie with what looked like nuts.
Not only was the bag sealed, the bottle neck and cap closed opening could be used as a way to pour out the nuts. This would be a handy way to reseal rice, beans, popcorn, lentils, and other similar grocery items bought in bulk.
