Ziploc bags come in all shapes and sizes. From the "snack" size for packing some raisins to "large freezer" bags, you can find one to suit just about any need. While we know that Ziploc bags are a great way to store food, they're actually a lot more versatile than you think. Whether it's in your home, or while you're out, these trusty bags come in handy when you least expect it.
Here are some other ways we have found to make use of these handy storage bags.
1. Wet a washcloth for an eco-friendly wet wipe
You never know when you will need to clean a messy hand or face, so keeping a wet washcloth in a Ziploc bag is a great way to avoid wasting money on wipes.
2. Make a DIY ice pack by freezing a wet sponge in a Ziploc bag
Bumps and scrapes are bound to happen, that's why it's always handy to have an ice pack on hand. Make your own with just a wet sponge and a Ziploc bag.
3. Organize chargers and wires in Ziploc bags to prevent tangling
Spring cleaning can't come soon enough! Individually package your chargers and wires to prevent them from getting tangled and get them within reach when you need them.
4. Put your phone in a Ziploc bag to prevent it from getting wet
Whether you're heading to the beach or it's a rainy day, pop your phone into a Ziploc bag to prevent it from getting wet.
5. Use them for packing
When you're packing for a weekend away, put your outfits inside large Ziploc bags to make it easier to get ready. When you're done you can even put your dirty clothes back inside, talk about working double duty!
