I've been pretty ill; I'll spare you the details but it's a toss up whether its just a virus or a sign of something worse.
Poor Robyn is catching me up.
So in between sleeping I've been wasting time with some more recycling that anyone can do.
First take a fizzy drink bottle and cut the top off at the neck. It works better with a 2 litre bottle because it's shallower but I didn't have one.
I cut them with a saw and then use a match to soften the edges (a lighter or a candle will do) but you should do it outside to avoid the fumes and be careful not to burn either it or yourself.
This will do;
Then take a bag which you want to close up tight - like frozen food, nuts or sweets;
Undo the bottle cap and feed the top of the bag through the neck of the bottle;
Push the top of the bag over the thread of the bottleneck;
Screw the bottle cap onto the thread of the neck as if you were closing the bottle but sealing the bag tight as you do it;
It's watertight and airtight and above all it doesn't cost a thing.
Once again, this is not my invention but there are countless people who have posted how to do this on the net.
Have a go?
