by Julia Blanter

So you thought Ziploc bags were just for sandwiches…and loose batteries? How about omelets in a bag or instant pillows? Ziploc Sandwich, Freezer, and Slider Variety bags are for way more than simple food storage (although they’re great at that). We crowdsourced the brightest, best, and downright weirdest Ziploc hacks below. Let us know what you think in the comments.

1. Omelette…in a bag?

Believe it or not you can make an omelette in a Ziploc. Get the recipe here.

2. Instant in-flight screening room

Turn that painful screenless seat experience into something a little less painful.

3. Luggage saver

Stop being that person at the airport. Here’s how.

4. No more tangled headphones

Go on, unleash your inner OCD.

5. Kids’ busy bags

Pack the kids one of these busy bags and save your sanity on a long flight or car trip.

6. Instant anywhere-pillow

If you’re desperate for a pillow, inflate a Ziploc.

7. Instant salad dresser

Tossing a salad and making a mess? Shake, shake, shake it up in a Ziploc instead!

8. 5-minute ice cream
