If you are shopping for a new bag, make sure you buy one that has a sealer on it. After all, with so many options out there in the market, why settle for a plastic bag that is not waterproof?
Sealers are used to prevent some substances from seeping into the polyester material of the bag. This is useful in the case of things like chocolate and cookies. Having the sealer helps to avoid food stains and prevent food from spilling over the sides of the bag.
If you want to be able to clean the sealer and use it, first you need to remove the sealer and dispose of the plastic bag. It’s better to buy a machine that can do this for you, but it isn’t necessary if you don’t want to.
Household cleaners like cleaning solutions, dishwashing liquids, or laundry detergents are safe to use on the sealer. These products can help to remove any remaining stain on the plastic. A strong solution or antibacterial cleanser can also be used.
Hand or power tools should never be used on the sealer. They may cut into the bag and damage the sealer, or they may puncture the bag and allow water and air to seep in. This could cause the sealer to deteriorate and cause it to lose its effectiveness.
If your household sealer is especially old, consider using a milder cleaner to help keep it looking good. If it has been through several washes, try using a product specifically designed for polypropylene bags.
Natural sealers are always a good idea because of the anti-bacterial properties. The best natural sealer is the EcoMat bag sealer. It is made from100% biodegradable materials.
EcoMat products are dishwasher safe for kids and pets. Unlike other sealers, it does not cause paper weight and it won’t weaken over time as the sealer wears out. Since it is environmentally friendly, it is often sold for cheap.
Some of the EcoMat sealers come with their own containers so you can reuse them. Others are sold in recycled plastic. Either way, they will last forever and no matter how often you wash your bag, it will still look great and work for you.
A professional sealer can cost hundreds of dollars and you don’t want to be stuck with one. While you may save money on your next bag by investing in one, make sure you get a sealer that is strong enough to handle all of the use you will be putting it through.
No matter what you decide, buy a bag that you can maintain yourself. Cleaning it yourself is simple and will help you avoid any nasty kitchen smells. Save money and worry about your bags when you invest in a sealer.
