Plastic bag clip sealer is a very simple yet useful tool that you need it daily to seal plastic bags. It locks the opening of the part you tore off and seal it so that it is completely air tight to prevent leakage. This is particularly important for food such as biscuits or potato chips, because leaving it open will make it lose its crunchiness and eventually turn soggy.
Using rubber band is one way of sealing plastic bag, but there are several drawbacks. Everyone uses rubber band, so we all know that it is quite fragile and easy to break. It is frustrating every time we pull too hard or too long that it just breaks and become unusable. Or worse, it breaks by itself after sometime even when nobody touches it, and the food is left open by itself without you noticing. Another downside of a rubber band is that it has very low melting point. Of course, it is cheap and easily available, but it melts even with slightest heat. Same thing happens that when it melts, it breaks and leave your food opened and worse, it sticks everywhere on the bag and your hand when you touches it.
Bag clipper serve as an alternative to seal a bag air tight. It helps preventing moisture from getting into the food. Although it is not as securely tight as sealing the bag completely using heat, it can be re-opened and closed again many time with ease, making it very handy to use on daily basis.
How does this plastic bag clip sealer works? You probably will be able to figure it out by just looking at it or playing around with it.
* For food storage, a little trick to ensure air tight condition is by first folding the plastic bag into half before clipping. However, do not fold too thick until it is hard to clip. You may end up clipping forcefully and spoil the clipper in the process. Pick a longer clipper if necessary.
