Polyethylene garbage bags can be bought not only in a hardware store, but even in a kiosk. They have several shortcomings.
For a small amount of garbage they, of course, are suitable.
But if you started a repair or are going to dismantle a storage room, you need something more solid.
You will save old wallpaper or a large piece of plastic film.
Bag of old wallpaper
You can make such a garbage bag in about five minutes. In addition to the remains of wallpaper, you still need-
- a ruler or a wooden rod.
In this case, nothing is measured to the nearestMillimeter is not needed. Wrap off a roll of old wallpaper piece of 1-1.5 m long. Unbend it as smoothly as possible (best on the rack), aligning the edges. Long sides glue with adhesive tape or the most common paper glue. The bag is ready, and it will fit into it much of what you are about to throw out.
The wallpaper has the property of being twisted, so before gluing, lay your bag on the floor and press the corners with something heavy.
Before starting repair it is better to think aboutHow you will clean up the garbage. Large packages of thick film can not always be bought, but the film itself is sold in the department of goods for gardeners all year round. It is better if it is double - you will only have to glue the bottom of the bag. However, even from a single film, the bag is made very quickly. If you do not have a device for welding polyethylene, a soldering iron or a burner is suitable. Place the film on the floor or on a large table and mark it. The less stitches on the package, the better, so fold the material in half. Think about the size of the bag you need. Write the width on the fold line, the length at the edge. Draw on polyethylene is best with a ballpoint pen. Cut out the bag, combine all the slices, place the workpiece on an unnecessary board and glue the seams with a soldering iron, leaving one hole open. By the way, it is not necessary to sew a bag with a thermo-method, it is possible to sew it on a typewriter, laying at the seams a double-folded band of dense fabric.
You can do the opposite, so that the fold passes along one of the long sides.
Reusable garbage bag
If you are bored with the same black packages,Which must be thrown away with the garbage, you can make a reusable bag. Specially buying cloth for him is not necessary. Fragments of the old Bologna cloak, for example, or calendered nylon, will do. In short, you need a fabric that does not get wet and easily rubbed off. You will cut out a strip about 40x150 cm in size. Some fabrics should be cut with a soldering iron or a burner, then you will not need to process the seams. Fold the strip in half with the wrong side out. You will get a double rectangle 40x75 cm in size. Treat the top by folding the fabric twice by 0.5 cm. Stitch and iron. Connect the side seams. Unscrew the bag. To prevent rubbish from spilling out, you can sew a couple of pieces of Velcro to the top edge.
