Seal Plastic Bags with Old Bottle Caps

I am a genius, a genius I tell ya.

Not many people can come up with an idea like this.

To be able to find something this neat in an email, then cut and past it to a blog takes talent, energy and foresight.   But I do it all for you, my peeps.

Anything to make your life easier is one of my commitments - because I care.

WHO EVER THOUGHT OF THIS SHOULD GET A GREEN MEDAL
(Not me, though…I should get a black medal instead - black for ink, ya know)

WHAT A GREAT IDEA. NO MORE TWIST TIES OR RUBBER BANDS.

This method is WATER PROOF AND AIR TIGHT.

Cut up a disposable water bottle and keep the neck and top as in this photo.



Insert the plastic bag through the neck and screw the top to seal.



The bag is made to be air-tight and waterproff.

The secret (for those of you who are less mechanically inclined) lies with the top and screw cap!

Genius!

Zip-top bags are great, but sometimes you buy something in bulk and you're stuck with a bag that cannot be sealed.

Fear no more…I have come to your rescue with this posting of an email.

Your welcome!!!

This would be great... if I were only allowed to use scissors!

But scotch doesn't come in a plastic bottle. Well...if it does I ain't drinkin' it

Whodathunk you were so into craftiness. Bet you were just wishin' you had come up with that. LOL

Obviously a Martha Stewart in the making, you are...but she gets others to do the dirty work and then takes credit on tv.

This is genius...except I'd probably lose a finger in the process, and woudn't have the dexterity required to twist the bottle cap inside the plastic bag.

There is something similar on the market. I bought them 2/$3 last year at the grocery store. I like your idea better. We always have empty bottles around. I have no idea where the store-bought ones are.

Marty Stewart? Like the idea and will try it. Keep us posted if you see anymore clever ideas. I am looking for a pattern to make purses out of blue jeans. Anyone?

I did that a long time ago. Here's the best way to use it.

Get a large lawn bag.
Shove dead husband in.
insert ends of bag through neck of bottle.
screw on cap.

I know this because I tried those damn bags they advertise on TV where you suck the air out with your vacuum cleaner.

Didn't work. He had air to breathe after a few minutes.

This is some of that "survival shit" they taught you in the Navy, isn't it?! LOL! Great idea. I may just have to give this a whirl...

I appreciate your post. I also wrote that SMS advertising provides a cost effective method of targeting promotions to specific customer profiles. You might want to remind customers of specific events or promotions, but for whatever reasons, SMS allows you to pass information directly to the right customer at very affordable prices and fast delivery.

You can reuse the caps with any other plastic bags you want. My local produce market sells a lot of dried fruit and nuts in these kinds of bags and I wear out a lot of twist ties to get to the food. Just replace them with this kind of cap will save me a lot of hassle. It's also easier for kids.
