Ok, you just unpacked that carefully wrapped item that you received from UPS or in the mail. Now you have bubble wrap or bubble pack that you need to do something with. Are you going to find a new use for this product or are you simple going to throw it away? If you do not want to just throw it away, there are several things that you can do with it. I can think of at least nine things, please feel free to add to this list if you can think of things that I have not.
The first thought was to stuff a pillow with the bubble wrap. This may not be a long term use pillow but it will do in a crunch. Simply stuff the bubble wrap into a pillow case and there you have it, a quickly made pillow.
Second on this list is a mattress. Ok this may take a little more bubble wrap and it may not last very long, but in a pinch and for a temporary solution, a mattress could be made out of bubble wrap. Simply use many layers of bubble wrap under a sleeping bag.
Third on this list of bubble wrap uses is insulation. Insulation can be created by gluing several layers of bubble wrap together and then using to insulate the interior of a doghouse. Again, it is not permanent, but would work for quite a while. The dog will appreciate it on those cold winter days and nights.
The fourth thing that can be done with bubble wrap or a bubble pack is to create a costume for a child. Halloween costumes are made out of all types of things and bubble wrap can be added to this list. Let your imagination be your guide.
Number five is picnic table bench cushions. This is a no brainer, but it will work, at least once. Simply roll out the bubble wrap onto the benches and you have an instant padded seat.
The sixth use is similar to the fifth use. Use the bubble wrap to soften the old bleacher seats at the next ballgame you go to. Cheap and you can throw it away after the game is over.
Use number seven is to protect glass. This is handy if you are moving something, such as a mirror. Simply surround the glass piece with the bubble wrap and tape into place. Protection for the item until you get where you are going.
Number eight may be something that you have not thought of. Use bubble wrap to insulate windows. Simply cut the bubble wrap to fit the inside of the window, spray the window glass with water and put the bubble wrap over the water. The water will hold it in place.
And finally, everyone’s favorite thing to do with bubble wrap….pop it!
