These bags came in my Squix box as a try it item. I am truly impressed by them. I have put various food items in them to see how well they work. I put a block of cheese in one bag. After weeks it is still good as new. It is even better than plastic bags where the cheese molds or goes hard. Neither has happened. When we put fresh vegetables or fruits in them they last longer. I just love these bags.
Tested this on two different things. First- strawberries. I put 5 strawberries in a regular "green bag", 5 strawberries in a Formaticum Antibacterial Food storage bag, and finally left 5 strawberries in its regular store container. The ones in the regular store container got bad in 4 days. The ones in the "green bag" lasted about 7 days. The ones that I put in the Formaticum bags were still good after almost 2 weeks. I ate them so not sure how much longer they would have lasted. I also used it on lunch meat. I used Boars Head brand ham. I bought 1 lb. I separated them into about .5 lbs and left half in the store bag and the other half in the Formaticum bag. After a week, the ham in the store bag got a little slimy. Still after two weeks, the ones in the formaticum bag is still good. :) I'm sold. :)
How to reuse??
These bags are really unusual. Unfortunately, I don't find the directions on how to use or what they are best used for very helpful. I also don't know how they can be reused, since they are pretty crinkly. The directions say reusable and recyclable, but there is no number listed. And does reusable mean washable? Again, it doesn't say. I used them for storing muffins, and I liked how easy it is to fold and clip the bags shut. I haven't yet tried to store fruit or veggies in them. While I like them so far, at this cost, I'm not sure I would buy again.
Studies have proven that food stored in this material lasts twice as long, as when stored in leading alternatives.
