Part of becoming self sufficient is learning to make things last as long as possible, so you don’t have to keep buying replacements.
I like the convenience of zippered plastic bags, but don’t like the expense. I resisted rewashing them because they took so long to dry and there is a chance for mold during our humid summers. So I figured a way to let them air dry the quickest way possible.
Here is a photo:
- Wash the zipper bags with soap and water. Rinse thoroughly.
- Take a carabiner and attach it to a binder clip. Hang by the carabiner to a wire hanger, nail or metal shelf.
- Hang the zipper bag by one bottom edge and leave it to try. You can hang multiple bags at once.
I’ve washed gallon, pint, sandwich sizes, all with good results. (Do not rewash bags that have come in contact with meats.) If you have a different way of doing this, please share in the comments.
