Keeping Bags from Falling into the Wastebasket

If the trash bag in your kitchen garbage bucket keeps slipping down, simply cut the elastic off the waist band from an old pair of panty hose and slip it around the top, securing the bag to the outside of the garbage can.

I use the elastic from an old pair of my husband's briefs that I cut off. lol. Works like a charm. God Bless.

Keeping Bags from Falling into the Wastebasket

I used a piece of elastic from my sewing basket. I just cut off the length that I needed and tied a knot in it. It has been working great on my tall kitchen plastic trash container for several years. Before the elastic, the plastic bag was constantly sliding down when anything heavy was thrown in. (10/08/2010)
