Filler for the toilet. See infra.Same as plastic film. Plastic bags are made of plastic film. Hence they can be used the same as plastic film.Trash bags. Usually store plastic bags are smaller than the regular garbage bin. So we just need to find smaller bin for them.
Bottles (plastic bottles)
Containers (plastic containers)
Pots for planting
Film (polyethylene film, plastic wrap)
0 Source: Plastic film can come from various types of the garbage: plastic bags, plastic (polyethylene) package etc.
Cover for car seats. If plastic film is big enough it can be used to cover the car seats. And like cardboard the film also protects against liquids.
Filler for the toilet. See infra.
Gloves, rubber gloves. Use rubber rings to cover hand with plastic film, it will protect skin from any liquid. Also original way of making gloves is here:
Handkerchiefs. One time or many time uses.
Heat insulation. Polyethylene film is good heat insulation material. Film is lightweight and flexible - thus we can sew it up to the interior side of the clothes. Or crumple it.
Insert (liner) for folders and envelopes. It is not always possible to laminate plastic film because it could not stick to paper. However we can stick plastic film to itself and make a liner for cardboard and paper folders and envelopes. Use iron and heat gun to stick film.
Fabric - use it as a a fabric. If the plastic film is hard and strong enough we can use it to enforce pockets, sew up to other parts of clothes.
Laminate paper and cardboard. We can do that manually, with iron and piece of fabric (watch YouTube). We can laminate folders for sorting out the garbage. See more about laminating here.
Make bigger film. We can stick together multiple small pieces of plastic film. Iron is needed for that. We can apply iron to film even without a fabric layer.
Napkins. Not the best option because paper napkins are more convenient for use. However we can use plastic wrap as a napkin also if there is no other alternative.
Pillows. We can fill pillows with crumpled plastic film.
Plastic envelopes. With heat gun or tape, we can stick envelopes out of the plastic film. We can do plastic folders also.
Ropes. We can weave a strong rope out of plastic film. We can fold film in multiple layers (lines). Or we can cut multiple strips out of the film sheet. And then weave them together. Then we can melt ends of the rope.
Scrub Sponge. We can crumple (fold, squash) plastic film and use it to scrub the dirt from toilet, sink etc.
Tape. If heated and pressed with iron, plastic film can stick to a surface. This is relevant for hard (fat) plastic film (not thin). Example of the fat film is store label (sticker) with the bar code.
Trash bags. We can place big piecei of plastic film onto the metal ring effectively making it a trash bag.
Net or screen (like mosquito screen)
Grocery bag. Save nature by avoiding using plastic bags. Instead, use reusable bag made of screen. We can sew it up.Rope. We can use screen as a rope.
Ropes (Plastic ropes)
Staples from food
Filler for the toilet. See infra.Putty knife. Plastic sheets are flexible enough to be used as a putty knife. They can be joined with a lid from metal can, to make the putty harder.Protection. Small plastic sheets can be sticked together via tape, duck tape or even needle and thread. Than we can use it to enforce anything- clothes, electronics cover etc.
Bottle handlers. Apply multiple lawyers of tape around the bottle to make it stronger.
Enforcement. Both regular tape and duck tape can be used. Last one is even better and stronger.Both new (in case of surplus) and used tape can be used and reused. Used tape is still sticky and can be applied thus. Even if it is cut in small pieces or it has a glue gaps in within, we still can make a strong and reliable surface out of it. Just apply numerous lawyers one above each other. One twig is not reliable however numerous twigs build up strong broom. One thread is weak, however numerous threads build strong rope.
When multiple lawyers of tape are applied, it acts as a strong and at the same time flexible material. Flexibility results in amortization and protection from accidentally falling down or hitting.
Strength of multiple lawyers is a known principle in manufacturing process. It is used when making plywood and fiberglass. Plywood is nothing but multiple thin lawyers of wood. Fiberglass is also made of thin fiber pieces.
It is preferred if the item to be enforced allows tape to make a full circle. E. g. a bottle or a box. Bad example is a big wall of the room - we can stick used tape there, it will be flat without a full circle, so it will not be reliable and can fall out this.
It is better to apply tape immediately after we take it out from the previous surface. Otherwise later it becomes crumpled and difficult to unfold.
E. g. the following items could be protected:
- Glass. E. g. glass bottles etc.
- Plastic. E. g. plastic bottles, boxes etc.
- Backpack, especially it's bottom.
