Here's something interesting

This idea came to me from a friend through an email and I thought I would give it a try.  I love fun, funky new ways of doing things.  But they have to work.  This works pretty darn well. Someone had their thinking cap on with this one.

I did sand the cut edges of the plastic though as cut plastic can have some sharp edges. At least they do when I cut plastic.

How to seal a plastic bag and make it air-tight.............

Cut off the neck and cap of a plastic water bottle.  Insert the open end of a plastic bag through the neck and fold the plastic back down over the bottle neck and screw on the top to seal. It's a bit fiddly at first, but once you get the 'feel' for it, it actually works pretty well.  Easier to deal with than twist ties for those of us with more mature hands that don't cooperate all the time.  :-)

Good for us and the environment; as long as you recycle the bottom part of that bottle :-)
Have a lovely week.  Oh, and Happy Fourth of July!  Go find yourself a serviceman and give 'em a big hug and kiss for all they do for us! Thanks for stopping by Two Dogs.  Hugs, Shawna
