DIY Busters: Plastic Bottle Cap, Rim, and Plastic Bag Thingy = Useless

Here’s a DIY we tested, along with our verdict.

Today I thought I’d try my hand at a popular DIY project that many have touted as a wonderful kitchen solution to seal a plastic bag. It’s that plastic bottle cap, bottle rim and plastic bag thingy that you see pinned all over Pinterest. Now, I’m all in favor of super smart solutions to make life easy in the kitchen and food realm. And I figured this one would take me just a few minutes to complete and then I’d discover the secret behind what makes the thingy so revolutionary. Below is our test and how-to-make-a-useless-plastic-bottle-cap,-rim-and-plastic-bag-thingy-and-discover-that-a-mason-jar,-twist-tie, rubber-band-or-reusable-ziploc-bag-might-really-do-the-trick:

Ready to Make That Bottle Cap Bag Thingy

Done: Useless Bottle Cap, Rim, and Plastic Bag Thingy

Trying to Extract Jelly Beans, One-at-a-Time, Out of the Useless Bottle Cap, Rim, and Plastic Bag Thingy

Oh, and After Two Uses (Screwing the Bottle Cap with the Bag Sandwiched Between Cap and Rim) it Ripped My Bag

Even a Sock is Better Than That Thingy

Ziploc or Other Locking Bags are Washable and Reusable

How About a Jar?
