Changing the trash bag has never been this easy!

Changing the trash bag is one of the most foul chores we can think of. It stinks, we never seem to be able to get the bag out properly, and if we’re out of luck it’ll even tear open in the process. Gross! Luckily, we’ve got a trick for you today that’ll make your life a lot easier. Follow these steps and changing your trash bag will be the easiest thing in the world from now on!


Tricks that make cleaning and tidying easier: who doesn’t love them? We certainly do! Changing your garbage bag isn’t the most difficult thing in the world, but it can be an annoying chore. This trick will make it a lot easier from now on. First, make sure to take out the old bag. Then follow the following tips to make changing the bag so much easier in the future.

This is how to do it:

Step 1: Take out a new trash bag and open it, but don’t put it in the trash can yet.

Step 2: Take a second trash bag, put it in the first bag and fold it open, so they fit together perfectly. Keep doing this until you have a stack of bags; around 10 of them will do.

Step 3: Carefully pick them up and place the bundle of bags in the empty trash can. Fold the top of the bundle over the edge of the trash can. If this doesn’t fit, just fold the top bag over the edges. The next time your garbage bag is full and needs to be changed, you’ll just lift out the top bag and the new bag will already be in there. You’re done already! Plus, if your full garbage bag tears, the garbage won’t be all over your empty trash can. Instead it’ll just have fallen into the next trash bag! This will save you a lot of time you would’ve otherwise spent grumbling and cleaning.
