Either the water evaporates or the plastic leaks, neither being good for the car.

I tried out the coffee bag idea. It was a no go. I couldnt get the smell of coffee out no matter how much I washed it out. I did go ahead and sealed up some rice in it but it wound up tasting horrible when I made it a couple of days after being sealed as a test.

Thanks for the great idea. I didn't know a hair straightener would be hot enough to do this. Though I do have a regular portable sealer to reseal potato chip and other bags. Like if I really mutilate my jerky bag.

Wait...that didn't come out right.

This is great idea. Once I find some empties(probably from my nephews) I will try out some different variations and post back with the results.

Excellent. We need more posts like this one.

I'm wondering, now. Can one store rice in one of these for long term storage? Get dry ice and do a table full of Capri Sun bags full of rice/beans? Then take all those handy little bags and put them in a five gallon bucket. Wouldn't you have dinner-sized portions without putting the whole bucket on the countdown to spoilage each time you open it?

What would the dry ice be for? Or was that just a typo?

But I would not see why this wouldn't work for long term storage but you will probably need to put a small 02 absorber into each individual package or vaccum seal them. That would be the only way I would do it for storage of 10 years and over. But after the air is out, I wouldn't see why you couldnt just toss them right into a bucket as is.

I have been able to vaccum seal these pouches with this method:

Other thread reminded me I have a few pouches sitting out in the yard for a little over 7 months now. One out in the sun, one underground and one in a bucket of water. Will open it and post pics after new years

That's doggone near brilliant.

Oh, and the dry ice drives off the oxygen. It's carbon dioxide and heavier than air. When it melts it displaces the oxygen from the bottom up. Put it in and when the mist starts leaking over the top of the package and the last of the ice is melted, , seal it.

At various places I have worked, I have saved the 5 to 10 pound mylar bags that coffee came in and the bags that printer toner came in.

I washed out the coffee bags and used them for various foodstuffs, often food that was already in another bag, but the coffee bags are very thick and protective and keep the food together and is another level of sealing.

The toner bags I used for other things like ammo and other non-food items. I still have plenty of empty toner bags.

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.
Hmm, along with the OP and all these extra ideas, my creativity is firing off. Great ideas everyone!
Using coffee bags sounds like it produces mixed results, but I have those on hand regularly enough that I would like to try them out.

Also thinking that it is time to buy shares in Kraft with the sudden surge in Capris Sun consumption.
