Need some extra room?
Whether packing away bulky winter clothes in the cupboard, or packing a suitcase for a grand adventure, vacuum storage bags can make the whole process that much easier. By removing the air in bags full of clothes, towels and blankets, vacuum storage bags – also known as vacuum bags – reduce the space needed to store those items, creating extra space in cupboards, closets and suitcases. Working in much the same way as vacuum seal food storage bags, which help to keep food fresher and are easier to store, vacuum storage bags are easy-to-use, and often reusable.
Buying Vacuum Storage Bags
So, what should buyers look for when comparing vacuum storage bags? One of the first things to think about when buying vacuum storage bags is size. These bags come in variety of sizes, for all types of storage. Smaller vacuum storage bags can be perfect for travel, while larger vacuum storage bags work better for home storage. Larger items such as duvets, pillows and blankets will generally benefit from a larger bag, while winter clothes, baby clothes and other items may be better suited to medium-sized bags. It really comes down to what’s being stored and where.
Another factor to consider is durability. Items stored within vacuum storage bags may be stored away for years, or they may be taken out every few months. The bag needs to be durable enough to keep its shape and hold its vacuum over time, and it needs to be strong enough to be refilled and re-vacuumed again and again. It can be helpful to read product reviews to find out how well each brand works for other users, and of course, it’s a good idea to compare options on eBay. Home to an extensive range of home storage essentials, eBay makes it easy to find everything from vacuum storage bags to home storage bags from all the best-known brands.
