Uses for Bread Ties

May 15, 2009

BRead Ties With Faces Painted on ThemDo not throw away your bread ties from the bread bags. I reuse them for opened frozen veggies, or anything that I open that needs a tie. Keep a stash in your kitchen drawer, you will be amazed how handy they become.

My favorite uses for these cute little thangs. Please add your ideas. On my Rolodex, I tape bread tabs on the cards most often used. Write the person's name with permanent marker and it's a real time saver. This is one item I can't bring myself to throw away. I have a whole china teacup full, isn't that terrible? Other uses I've heard of are using them to scrape a teflon pan and to label extension cords. Does anyone have any other ideas for using these, maybe especially in craft projects? By Jayne

Reuse bread ties. When you get out of the shower, put gel in your hair (or not!), twist hair around your finger and twist with a bread tie. Much more comfortable than rollers and hair dries quicker too.
