I can remember when I was growing up, looking up at the dish drainer (no dishwasher then either) and seeing plastic bag after plastic bag lined up there. I remember thinking "Why does mom waste all her time and energy cleaning out these gross bags just to reuse them, when she could just buy more?"
Of course now I don't think they are gross and I understand exactly why she did it. My mom was an environmentalist way before it was cool. And (in this way at least) I am proud to be like her. Those are plastic sandwich bags lined up on my own drainer. I wash out a few every day and reuse them. I haven't had to buy bags in over a year.
Join me and my mom in this reuse-it's easy and $ saving!
Do you do this? Tell me, can you put these in a dishwasher? Any other baggy tips?
