I do this too Robin--it is a big money saver and I am like you also do not keep the ones that had meat in them. (08/09/2006)
Glad I'm not the only one! Plastic bags are very handy, but why throw them out when they have lots of use still left in them!
Bravo for the extra effort! (08/09/2006)
While it does seem wasteful to toss the plastic bags, just be sure that the process you use to clean them isn't even more wasteful, particularly with the water consumed to rinse the bags. Water is a precious, non-renewable resource. While we could survive without plastic bags, we couldn't survive without water. And, of course, there is the soap and the energy used to heat the water. I'm not saying to stop washing your bags, just try to be conscious of how you do it. (08/10/2006)
