How to Get the Most Out of Your Plastic Wrap

Check out these quick hacks for tips on how to get the most out of your plastic wrap.

Steam Veggies

  • Did you know you can use plastic wrap in the microwave to steam veggies, bake a potato or even prepare corn on the cob? You can! Follow the instructions on the side of the package for instructions on how to use plastic wrap safely in the microwave.

Baking Hacks

  • Easily fill a decorative icing bag with plastic wrap: Cut a sheet of plastic wrap and place icing in the center. Roll the sides of the sheet up to create a tube of icing in the center with two tails of tightly wound plastic wrap on either end. Place this into your clean icing bag and pull one of the tails through the tip of the bag. Cut off the tail and you're ready to begin using the icing to decorate. When you're done, simply pull the plastic wrap out of the other end using the uncut tail, leaving a clean icing bag to switch between icing colors easily.
  • You can also use plastic wrap to roll out dough between two sheets of plastic wrap to help keep your counters clean.

Prep-Ahead Freezer Hacks

  • Portion out ground meat for easy burger prep. Place a double layer of wax paper between patties and then wrap the stack with plastic wrap to place into the freezer. When you need the patties, it will be much easier to pull them apart using this method.

Packing Hacks

  • Separate necklaces in different layers of plastic wrap so that they won't be a tangled mess when you get where you're going.
  • Wrap up your cutlery container using plastic wrap so that it holds your forks, knives and spoons in place for easy unpacking once you've settled into your new place.

Home Hacks

  • Cover the top of an open paint can with plastic wrap before pressing the lid on for a tighter seal to keep paint fresh longer.
