Uses for Ziploc Bags

Apart from the traditional uses—i.e., long-term food storage, packing a picnic, cooking meats sous vide—you can find 101 different uses for Ziploc bags. Below, I’ll cover some of the cleverer ways to utilize any spare Ziploc bags you have on hand.

Waterproofing your smartphone

If you’ve ever wanted to take your smartphone with you in the shower but don’t have a waterproof phone, you can keep water from damaging your phone by placing it inside of a Ziploc bag. Make sure the Ziploc bag is closed completely before bringing your phone into the shower with you.

Phone holder

While your phone is in a Ziploc bag, you can use it as a phone holder for wherever you are. You’ll need somewhere to hang the Ziploc bag, such as hooks or binder clips. You could also hang the top from the flip-down table’s locking hasp to keep the bag secure during the entirety of your flight.

Piping bag

Specialty piping bags can be expensive, and they’re also a pain to clean up. However, if you don’t want to spend money on reusable piping bags, you can use Ziploc bags instead. Just fill the bag up to ¾ of the way with cream and carefully snip off one corner of the bag. The tinier the hole, the more precision you will have when piping cupcakes and other confectionaries.

Funnel

If you don’t have a funnel, you can turn a Ziploc bag into a funnel with ease. Similar to fashioning a piping bag from a Ziploc bag, you will have to snip off one corner of the bag to allow any liquids to flow out. A tinier hole can make the pouring process longer, so snip it to as large as you want without spilling.

Crushing breadcrumbs and ice

This is a classic method of using resealable bags. The next time you want to make a cocktail or a cheesecake, simply put your ice or graham crackers into a Ziploc bag. Remove as much air from the bag as possible (a vacuum sealer isn’t necessary) before beating the bag with a rolling pin or another blunt object. Only fill the bag about halfway full to prevent the ice and breadcrumbs from breaking through the bag’s walls and spilling all over your countertop.

Storing paintbrushes

After painting, you will need to keep your brushes safe and secure to preserve the fine bristles. Instead of storing them out in the open, place your paintbrushes inside of a Ziploc bag. Make sure to rinse the bristles thoroughly prior to storage to maintain the straightness of the bristles.

Cleaning showerheads

Descaling a showerhead can be a challenge due to its awkward shape. So, the next time you need to get rid of any solids inside a showerhead, fill a Ziploc bag with vinegar and slip the showerhead inside the bag. Bunch up the end of the Ziploc bag and use rubber bands to keep it in place. Leave it there for up to 24 hours before turning the showerhead back on and rinsing.
