Introduction: Recycled Bottle Tops to Seal (preserve)open Plastic Packets
Runner Up in the
Preserve It! Contest
Last month I came across a random Facebook picture ( the kind that circulates itself through friends’ walls and you glance at it, maybe hit a like button, and then move on forgetting all about it 30 seconds later ) and fell in love with it. This one had a sliced off bottle cap sealing an open plastic bag.
Its very useful while surviving.
it is important to seal food packet after using it.so it will be useful method.
Step 1: Material
Used plastic bottles Sharp,
A Kitchen towel or soft cloth
Wash and dry the bottle.
Using the scissors, make a puncture about 1-2″ from the ring.
Slide the scissor in into the puncture and cut it out in a circle.
Slice the top of the plastic bag neatly.
Gather the folds and insert the ring, and pull up the ends creating a ‘neck’.
Seal the cap tight. You might have to push it down a bit to make the cap onto the ring.
For thicker plastics, it’s wiser to use sturdy bottle caps with a wide mouth – like a juice bottle. For thin plastics, you can use water bottle caps. If the plastic is too stiff, then transfer to a more pliable bag, like a bread plastic bag, and then use the cap method to seal it.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
