This is absolutely amazing. When I first saw this video, I thought they were going to show me how to do it, but using a clothespin instead of a bag clip. I actually have a couple of bags sealed that way already in my cupboard. It didn’t use clothespins or anything else for that matter. It was all how you sealed the bag that made the difference.
I decided to give it a shot and replace those clothespins with this method that required no extra clip, clothespin or paperclip. I got out both bags that had clothespins and ended up with good results on one bag and not so good on the other. The first bag, the bad results one, was torn down the side at the corner. It was an organic chip bag that’s a metallic plasticy material and I always use scissors to cut it straight across the top. The culprit who opened this one didn’t. I had no success on this one since it was torn down too far down the side and the clothespin went right back on the bag.
The second one was clipped across the top with scissors—obviously, I had opened it. It worked like a charm. This technique works better on some types of bag materials, but will work on all of them when they’re opened properly.
