Newspaper Bags for Messy Jobs

If your newspaper is delivered in plastic "sleeves", save these covers. Then when you have a really messy job to do, slip a pair of them over your hands and forearms as protective "mittens"; discard when finished. Especially helpful for those of us with arthritis who struggle to put on rubber gloves.

I used to save them to keep in my son's diaper bag. They were the perfect size for bagging up a smelly diaper if we were visting a friend or relative. I could wrap it tightly, knot it closed and be able to toss it in any garbage bin without worrying that it will smell up our host's home.

These also work well to pick up doggy "deposits" when walking.
