When I was younger, my mom used to wash out all those little sandwich bags so she could use them again. I thought it was pretty gross and a waste of time because there was an entire box of them in the closet! But now I am older (and wiser, I hope) and I realize that these bags should be used way more than once…after all, they are pretty sturdy.
So before you throw out those baggies, see if it can be washed and reused. Turn it inside out, wash it with soap and hot water and set it to dry with the dishes. One less plastic bag in the trash!Like this post? If so, please consider subscribing to my full feed RSS. Or, if you would prefer, you can subscribe by Email:
