This is a great idea!
I make individual spice mixes for things like tacos and pasta salads, as many of those things that my grandsons go thru, I could make up the seasonings for each meal in them...
they also could hold a mini first aid kit
A bar of soap, washcloth and hotel shampoo for a backpack
trail mix in individual servings
your own flavored oatmeal
a mini sewing kit

I'm so excited about this idea! Thanks.

Ooooooh That is a good one! I think it would make a good liquid soap/shampoo container! Just have to make sure I mark it REAALY good.

Great idea. Pin-hole would make a good spout and just duct tape the hole to close it off until next use.

Thanks!

I would like to do a few of these with water for the first aid kit in my car. Anyone know if/what things I would need to do to keep the water from "going bad"?

Thanks.

You are not alone in drinking them. And sometimes I still use the straws as spit-wad shooters.

I wasn't able to cook it in the pouch (with ramen yes, but not rice). Even paraboiled rice needed more cooking time inside the pouch. So best bet is to dump it into a canteen cup or something to cook.

But for non-watery rice. Use 1.5 amount of volume of water to rice. So if you have 1 cup, use 1.5 cups of water. If you use the carpisun pouch to measure, just fill it with water to where the rice was, pour it into the cooking vessel, then add half as much again to the rice.

Bring it to a boil, then remove from the heat and let it sit.

Water doesn't really "go bad" as long as you keep it in a cool dark place. Sometimes algae can grow in water if it is left in the light for long periods of time (months). But the capri sun pouches do not allow sunlight in. Bacteria can also grow if some of that was in the container when you seal it. A drop of bleach added to the water would help kill that off. But the downside os that the bleach solution can eventually degrade the container over time and make it weaker.

Default Excellent idea. Wow.

I first saw this about a week ago, while I was at my BOL surfing on the laptop, and couldnt wait to get home to try it.

So far, I've filled 24, lol.

Great northern beans with a beef bullion cube.

Rice with southwest seasoning.

Individual first aid kits for passing out to people, that contain small gauze roll, 2 - 3x3 gauze pad, 2 - 3x3 non-stick pad, 2 - 3x2 bandaid, 2 - alcohol prep pads, 2 - antiseptic pads, 2 - triple antibiotic packets, and 4 butterfly bandages.

I suppose the possibilities are endless, and each one can have it's exact contents written on the back, with a sharpie marker.

Great idea, I'll be using this one from now on, thanks again!!

Thanks for the info. I'll be sure to clean them thoroughly before using them. I don't mind the bleach problem as long as it'll hold for 6 mos or so. I'll have to experiment. My biggest problem is just that, right now a container of water doesn't make it a month in the car once the heat starts kicking in. Either the water evaporates or the plastic leaks, neither being good for the car.

id rather know about how much water to add instead of loosing my seasoning. Common sense would let you know to dump the water out.

1.5 parts water for each 1 part rice with a lidded cooking vessel.
1.75 parts water for 1 part rice if you are cooking without a lid.
Both by volume.

Hope it helps. This is generations of rice-cooking knowledge passed down from my ancestors

I have a food saver, think that would seal it? I may just have to experiment. I have been trying to get my 3 year old to drink a Capri sun all day.

Thats a great idea! Is there other foods that come in this sort of packaging. My Kids hate capri sun.

I tried the food saver, but the heat strip did not get hot enough to seal the bag. Maybe if you sealed it a few times. But I don't like to do that in case it hurts the heat strip.

Hmmm not really sure. Some chip bags are, but they aren't as thick as these caprisun bags. Ohh wait! Coffee bags are. You know those whole bean or ground up ones you get by the pound. That should seal just as well.

I have washed out and sun dried a couple of 1 pound dry cat food bags. I will try them at 6 and 12 months and let you know... They seemed to seal well.
