Easily Opening Plastic Bags

I lick my clean thumb and finger and twist it at the top of the bag to start it. Once I have the top of the bag open, I need to open it to the bottom. I open the top of the bag then I put it back together holding the whole top together then slide my hand down pushing that little air bubble which has formed, this way it will open the bag all the way to the bottom. Depending on the length of the bag, I have had to repeat it up to 4 times. It sure beats shaking bags in the air in the store with bad shoulders.

Im a produce mgr - do this - when you pull the bag off the roll - dont lick your hand or fingers - just pat your fingers on something wet in the produce dept : cabbage - greens - etc : now take the bag at the top to be opened and take both hands - use fingers with the plastic bag between your hands and rub - the friction from rubbing the bag with both hands will immediately open the bag ! A lot of times it will work just with the friction alone ! Hope this helps !
