If you are anything like me, there will be at least one time in your life when you need a new vacuum bag but realize you don’t have any.
I learned this tip from some talk show I saw a few years ago:
If you find yourself in a vacuum bag emergency, cut the bottom off the bag and empty the contents into the garbage. Fold the bottom of the bag over two or three times and staple it. Voila, clean, empty, reusable bag!
I have done this dozens of times and it really works.
