A guide to self-seal bags

Today's household cannot do without them. They are used for everything, whether it is putting food leftovers away for the next day's dinner, packing a sandwich for the kids who go to school, or putting something away in the freezer. Self-seal disposable bags have become one of the tools needed mostly in the kitchen.

Modernisation in the kitchen

Preserving leftovers For years, edibles were covered with a clean dish cloth and stored away in a cool cupboard to maintain their freshness and to be eaten the next day. With the invention of waxpaper, which was attributed to Thomas Edison, but was really invented by Gustave Le Gray in 1851, preservation of leftovers from cooking changed. Waxpaper became the kitchen tool aid that reigned for many years in the kitchen so as to keep things edible and fresh. In 1951, a chemical worker from Dow Chemical accidentally came up with something that would revolutionise the way food leftovers were disposed of again. Plastic clear through wrap took over the role of the waxpaper and became the number one aid for covering containers which contained edibles. Children going to school with their lunches wanted to have their sandwiches wrapped in plastic wrap. It would only be only a few years later that resealable bags or reclosable bags would come on the scene.

Resealable bags There are many different types of resealable bags. The most known are the ziplock bags. These zip-it bags zip in the moisture and maintain the edibility of the food within. However, most polythene bags used as a kitchen aid maintain the freshness and the edibility of its content. The ziplock bag has laid its claim as being the superior product because it was the first on the market, the ziplock bag has laid its claim as being the superior product. Finally, good quality zipper bags are not only for the kitchen, but are also for other uses and are manufactured by many companies.
