15 Re-Uses for Plastic Zipper Baggies

  • 2 of 3

6. Speaking of hot summer trips…

Got kids? Ever try to bring crayons along on a hot summer day? Well then, you may be familiar with the hot melty mess that can result from crayons on a car ride. Next time, pack them up in a plastic baggie, just in case.

7. Speaking of kids…

You can use the bigger baggies for super cool art projects – like this mess-free finger painting.

8. Diapers.

If your kids are still little, throw a few baggies in your diaper bag. They make perfect little receptacles for dirty dipes or soiled clothes.

9.  Moist towelettes.

Instead of spending money on fancy products, you can make your own travel towelettes by wetting some paper towels (add a little lavender essential oil if you’d like) and bagging them up yourself. They’ll stay super moist and if you stash them in your purse, you’ll always be prepared.

10. Ice pack.

Baggies make awesome impromptu ice packs. Just fill them with water and freeze!

Thanks, re-use depends what was originally stored in them, but I don't use them that often. Basically some snack size for leftovers or for snacks on the go).

I tried putting all of my berries in one of the big zipper loc bags. Every time they leak which makes a big mess in my fridge. I try to avoid plastic or at least reuse as much as possible any plastic bags I get.
