14 brilliant uses of Ziploc bags

While Ziploc bags are typically advertised and used as bags to hold sandwiches or other food, there are many other uses for your Ziplock bags that you may not be aware of. Right now, you may be wondering why the photo shows a pair of jeans inside the Ziploc bag.

Keep reading and see how these seemingly simple bags can make your life easier. Check out these 14 brilliant uses:

1. Tablet protector. If you like to use your tablet as a recipe book, you’ll love this hack. Place your tablet inside a gallon-sized Ziploc bag. The touchscreen will still function through the bag.

2. Ice packs. Fill different sized Ziploc bags with water and keep them frozen for use on bumps and sprains when needed.

3. Kitchen funnel. Pouring oats, rice, and other small substances can be a big mess. Avoid a major clean-up by filling a bag with whatever you’re funneling. While holding the bag over the container that you want filled, cut a small hole in the Ziploc and let the items funnel through.

4. Piping bag. This technique uses the same concept as the above funnel hack. Cut off a corner, fill the bag with frosting or whatever you’re piping, and carefully squeeze out the desired amount. Use this trick for making frozen yogurt dots. Pipe dots of yogurt onto a cookie sheet and freeze to make a delicious, healthy ice cream replacement.

Even your dog will thank you for it!

5. Better marinade. Foodies know this easy trick for marinades. Place all ingredients inside the Ziploc bag. Let the juices seep into the meat, fish, or veggies overnight for a top notch marinade.

6. Stop mohair from shedding. Fashionistas will love this tip. Fold your angola or mohair garment and slide it into a Ziploc bag. Seal and freeze for a minimum of three hours. This will prevent the hair from shedding.

7. Stretch shoes.
