You may think that Paper Mart bubble wrap can only be used for its usual and most popular purpose: protecting your fragile material as it is shipped to a friend abroad. While this may be the major purpose of the accidentally invented bubble wrap, you can consider in your list additional ones so that when you receive a package, you might as well keep this cushioning material for other uses.
Here are some other uses of a bubble wrap:
1. Protection of your car windshield during the winter season
That is right. You can insulate your windows with a bubble wrap and save yourself all the hassle of cleaning up all the snow and frost that normally cover up your car. It’s a pretty quick and easy thing to do. You just have to prepare an exacto knife and spray bottle along with the wrap. The first step is to mist water onto your car’s windows and press the wrap (bubble side) against the window. The water will surely hold the bubble wrap in place.
2. Keeping your home warm
This, again, is what you call an idea during the winter season. You want to keep your home warm without necessarily having to use a heater and receiving huge energy bills at the end of the month. It’s pretty easy as the same procedure in the previous item is applied – you don’t have to use a tape to stick the bubble wrap.
3. Maintaining the shape of your handbag collections
Apart from its winter uses, a bubble wrap can keep your expensive purses and handbags in shape. Stuffing up your unused leather bags with bubble wrap instead of the usual newspapers before storing them in cabinets can keep them in good shape. Newspapers are said to cause them to expand and it might be hard to retain their original shape after.
4. Keeping the groceries cold
If you want to drive your gallons of ice cream to a picnic far away from home, use a bubble wrap to slow down its melting. You can line your bag with it for many of your groceries that you need to keep cool or keep warm.
