Go Green with your Spring Clean!

Packmate vacuum storage bags are the ideal spring cleaning partner this year.

The flat and high volume vacuum storage bags (RRP from £12.99) come in a variety of sizes from medium (great for clothing and cushions) to large, extra-large and jumbo – capable of storing a Queen or King size duvet.

The Packmate bags allow you to store up to four times more in your home. By simply removing the air with a vacuum cleaner, Packmate bags compress clothes and bedding so they take up less precious storage space in wardrobes, cupboards and under beds. Not only that, but they protect belongings from damp, dust and household pests too.

This year the bags have been revamped too making your spring cleaning efforts even easier! The changes include a new zipper, improved valve and eco-friendly packaging.

The new green-seal system will help you to clearly see if your bag is perfectly closed so that you can achieve maximum compression. One strip is yellow and the opposite side is blue, and when the zipper is sealed correctly it changes to green fully protecting items from damp and dust.

The valve has also been updated to be compatible with more corded and cordless vacuums than ever before. This makes it even easier to store away bulky items like winter duvets, towels, clothes, cushions and more.

And for the eco-conscious, the packaging has been completely revamped with a huge reduction on the amount of single-use plastic used. You can find Packmate bags either in a box pack in Lakeland which has saved 20 tonnes of plastic packaging or in a film pack which is made from 50% post-consumer recycled material.
