House Doctor Lisa Quinn has tips for quick household fixes using plastic bags.

It's always great to have quick solutions for things you're trying to fix around the house. Below are some of our House Doctor's favorite quick fixes/uses for plastic bags.

Use plastic bags to:

  • Collect the garbage in your car. Use it as a trash receptacle, especially if you have kids
  • Stuff pillows or toy animals.
  • Keep your purses looking good. Stuff them with bags so they don't lose their shape when kept in the closet for long periods of time.
  • Hold loose change you collect in the laundry room . You can keep a bag on a hook near the washer or dryer.
  • Hold wet bath toys. Cut vents in the bag for drainage and then hang over your faucet.
