1. Start of Fire
Let’s start the list with one of the cooler uses. You can start a fire with a slider storage bag by filling it with water then using it to focus sunlight on your tinder. This video goes into more detail.
2. To Store Seeds
Use the slider storage bags to store seeds that you have harvested and dried. If you have plenty of bags, you can put different seeds in each slider storage bag and label them.
3. Carry Wild Edibles
Slider storage bags can be used to carry seeds, berries, and other plant parts that you forage. Berries can get messy and sticky, so having them in a slider storage bag keeps them from getting on the rest of the plants you harvest.
4. Cover a Wound
Place the slider storage bag over a bandage or directly over a wound until you can take care of it properly. This will keep it dry, and dry wounds are the key to preventing bacteria growth. The slider storage bag can be held on with duct tape or medical tape.
5. Collect Water
Use the slider storage bags to collect water from leaves or other greenery. Put the bag over the end of a tree limb and secure it with a rope or a rubber band, then leave it there overnight. The condensation will fall into the slider storage bag.
6. Carry Water
If you need to take water with you but you don’t have any other containers, slider storage bags can be used to carry water. However, you’ll want to use the large kind and, depending on the quality of slider storage bags, you may want to double bag it.
7. Warm Up Water
If you want to warm up some water to use for a sponge bath, but you don’t want to start a fire just to warm a little bit of water, then seal your water in a slider storage bag and place it in the sun for a few hours.
8. Keep Tinder Dry
Slider storage bags are ideal for keeping matches, tinder, and other fire-starting equipment dry. You never know when you may have to deal with rain or snow.
9. Keep Electronics Dry
If you have a GPS unit or even a cell phone, stick it in a slider storage bag to keep it safe from moisture.
10. Use As Gloves
Stick your hand in the slider storage bag and use it as a glove to take care of any messy business. You could also use them as gloves to tend a bloody wound or wipe down your sleeping mat.
11. Organize Your Slider Storage Bag
Put first aid supplies in one, fire starting supplies in another, and so on. This will make it easy for you to grab exactly what you need without rummaging through your slider storage bag. The larger quart and gallon bags work best here.
12. Contain Dirty Clothes
Toss your dirty socks or underwear into a large slider storage bag to wash when you get a chance. This will keep the smell from getting all over your other stuff.
13. Protect New Seedlings
You can use slider storage bags to create small greenhouses to protect new seedlings. In a survival situation, your vegetable plants will be a major source of nutrition and you need to do what you can to nurture them.
14. Hold Small Game
If you have been lucky enough to harvest a small animal, plastic bags will be your best friend. They will help keep things tidy and can be used to carry the animal back to your camp.
15. As Slider storage Bags
If you are dealing with a pandemic or if someone has the flu, slider storage bags will be a huge help in keeping things clean. Viruses are spread through bodily fluids and you don’t want to risk exposing yourself or other people in the family.
