Save Space With Vacuum Storage Bags

Vacuum storage bags help protect your clothes and save space in your storage area. You can find these handy bags on eBay from many manufacturers. Here are a few tips to know before you make your purchase.

What is a vacuum storage bag?

A vacuum storage bag stores your clothes and bedding in an airtight plastic bag. These bags are sealed with a vacuum hose to remove all the air from the container. Many people use these bags to protect their items from mildew, dirt, insects, and water. Some bags can even block ultraviolet light and prevent oxidation. Oxidation can cause stains to spread and discolour your fabrics. Vacuum-sealed bags are used to prevent these elements from harming your belongings. This style of fabric compression also reduces the size of the bag. You can save space when you pack your clothes into a vacuum storage bag. Most storage bags can last up to 12 months. After that period, you will need to check on the bag and reseal it.

What is the capacity of the storage bags?

You never want to overfill your vacuum bags. It can make it difficult to create an airtight seal. Most bags recommend that you leave 10cm of empty space above and below the seal. This will help you create a seal that will keep out moisture and mildew. If you want to create a firmer seal, you need to move the zipper once or twice across the bag after it has been vacuumed. This action will help you to remove any air that may still be in the bag.

What can you store in a vacuum bag?

Many people store soft items in these bags. Blankets, winter sweaters, pillows, duvets, towels, and other linens can all be stored. These bags can reduce their storage space by up to 75%. The bags can also be used when you travel as well. Storage space is limited in a suitcase. You can pack your clothes in the bag and store them in your luggage. Some bags do not even need a vacuum to reseal. You can simply roll the bag to get out any air in the packaging.

Who manufactures a vacuum bag?

There are many manufacturers who design and sell their bags. These bags come in a wide variety of sizes as well. You can find a bag to fit small tea towels to large duvets. These manufacturers include the following:

  • IKEA
  • Pack Mate
  • JML
  • Russel
