Uses for Plastic Bacon Packaging

I use the piece of plastic found underneath the bacon in each package. It is flimsy enough to cut with regular scissors, yet strong enough to use many times over.

A paint palate

Make your own stencil from it. Use it when you paint baseboards to keep paint from getting on carpet.

A bowl scraper

When painting fabric-keep between layers to prevent paint from seeping on to back layer

Posters for yard sales or other signs (use permanent marker)

You know that little plastic sheet that comes in the bacon package? I sanitize and wash it in hot, soapy water to use as a handy cutting-board protector. I use it on paper plates so I can cut without shredding the plate. I place it between hamburger patties or marinated steak waiting for the grill. And I also place it between burgers and steak before I freeze, allowing for easy separation. These plastic sheets can be washed and reused many times.

Wow, what great ideas! I never even thought of using that plastic sheet. Also another idea for crafters and quilters, altho I haven't tried, would be to use for template material. It might be too thick to easily cut with scissors, I don't know but could be used for pattern pieces I would think. (07/28/2006)

I know someone who washes the plastic sheet from bacon and then uses it as a template for craft work. Or if you are careful & artistic, you could make a small stencil from the plastic. (07/28/2006)
