DO you have a stash of carrier bags under your sink or in a drawer from times you have forgotten to bring your own shopper to the supermarket?
If your cupboard is starting to overflow, a cleaning whizz on Instagram has come up with an impressive solution to storing plastic bags neatly.
Influencer Mrs D's Cleaning Reviews, who has 31,500 followers, said you should “keep them organised by folding them neatly into a triangle.”
The Chorley-based Instagram user showed her fans how she then stores the bags neatly in a basket to free up space in her home.
Mrs D said: “It just looks so much neater tucked away in a basket just like this.”
In order to turn a scrunched up 10p bag into a triangle, you need to first flatten it out on a table and push all of the air out.
She instructed how you fold the left and the right side into the middle in thirds, before folding the bottom up into threes.
Mrs D demonstrated: “You fold it over once, and then fold it over again.
“Then you are going to make a triangle by folding it in half, from corner to corner, and then you are going to fold it again, just like so.
“With the handles, you can secure it. All you are going to do is fold those handles over the top of the triangle, so you end up with a little triangle bag.
“That’s neat as can be.”
She then pops the little compact triangle in the white basket along with her others - and many social media users were seriously impressed.
One person raved: “Love this, I know what im going to be doing later.”
Another added: “Fantastic, I'm going to do this tonight. I have a drawer full of bags. Thanks for the tip Mrs D.”
Meanwhile, one commented: “That is genius! Good for the back of the car and handbag too!”
Mrs D isn’t the only person to be a fan of the trick, with Jeremy Vine's wife Rachel posting a similar tutorial.
