    A quick tip on filling vacuum bags

    I use a 1 qt plastic soup container with the bottom cut off to fill the bags:

    You cann use the smaller container, but the longer one keeps more of the inside of the bag clean.

    Great tip! Thanks.


      Agreed 👍.


        I like that, thanks!!


          This is a great idea! Probably better than my method of rolling the top down a few inches.

            Whereby I'm still wiping crap off the inside AND dealing with sealing a crinkly freaking bag!

          Thanks for sharing…very inventive!!


            Show off! It really is brilliant. I'm showing my wife now. You have no idea how much trouble I get in making messes.


              I do the same. Great minds think alike


                I use a paper plate folded, since I’m usually using that on a scale anyway, but I can see this working better in most cases.


                  We do the same, great in the fall when we process our tomatoes into sauce. The liquid block bags work pretty good too, not perfect.


                    This is a great idea. Thanks!


                      Great idea!


                        What a good idea. Thanks, Ron!



                          I use those plastic tumblers that usually have logos on them. Bottom cut out and split down the side for small bags. They can flex and fit accordingly . The unsplit tumblers I use for liquids.
