Having a lot of stored Junk, we have the problem of bringing it down a
ladder and sorting it and then putting some back.
Supermarket plastic carrier bags were good for storage and very handy to
carry up and down the ladder, but i think most are now probably
'degradable' and will soon fall apart into a thousand pieces.
Are there any plastic bags (maybe some bin bag types or similar?) that
will not be degradable, that any one knows of ?
AFAIK, only Tesco were stupid enough to introduce disintegrating bags,
which they later replaced with "normal" "single use" bags prior to the

A vacuum is a hard thing to maintain, and a thin plastic bag with a zip top not much of a barrier. If you need the clothes to stay compressed, vacuum them down then bind them with a few wraps of tape. You don't need the vacuum any more then.
I’m not sure that any supermarket bags are “oxy-degradable” any more. I

We recently went to M&S and the cashier commented about the old M&S

realised that it was a bag that we'd recently retrieved from the loft,
where it had been protecting towels since we were given them, when we
got married in 2002!
