Great idea to reuse marked ziploc baggies


Great idea for all you seed traders~

You know all those little ziplock plastic baggies of seed you get in trade that someone wrote the seed name on with a marker.

What can you do with them cept toss em, but I bet you would like to reuse them and save some money on buying more~

Well with just alittle bit of alcohol on a cotton ball, all that marker comes right off and the little baggie is all clean and ready to use again for your seeds!

I had a whole bunch I had saved and now they are all cleaned up for this years trading!

Hehehe, not easier to just stick a label on them? I sometimes do that
Unfortunately I am not good at collecting these... I put them on tables, desks, cupboards and so on and sometimes when I clean up, I throw them away...

Yea I usually do the labels either inside the pack or sticky labels. My handwriting is so terrible it's just easier to type out as many as I need on the computer and print them out.

But I always get so many that have the markers, now I have a whole bunch I can reuse!

Good idea! I type up a key with numbers and then just put numbers on the bag. The next person can just type up a key as well!
