Step 1: What Do You Need?
For make this tutorial you need 3 components:
► Plastic bag (obviously)
in my experience i found another components for make this trick but the quality isn't good than the classic method
► in alternative to the baking paper yo can use common news paper or other piece of paper
►in alternative to solderimg you can use the Flatiron
Step 2: Easy and Fast
Leave your soldering to get hot and put the baking paper on the plastic bag you want to Seal!
Now use the Tip of welder to draw the part if you want to seal (like the photo) Be careful with this part, because the tip of welder it's really hot and you can burn your skin!
After you can test the seal with pull the two extremity of the bag
But whats happening at the plastic?
the Source of heat on the soldering melt the plastic and Link the two part of plastic together... this create a new piece of plastic and nothing can get out and nothing get in
Step 3: Waterproof Test
Now the best part: The final Test for waterproof
Seal a little bit of water or another things and try to press on top of this, if you want see the liquid get out you had made a good Job
This it's a good tips when you have to reapir an important document or item you won't get wet.
Another application is for ice! You can seal the water inside and after put in the refrigerator
