Vacuum storage bags can be compressed by removing the air inside them to reduce their size and save space. Once the air is extracted from bags used to store towels, blankets, bed sheets, etc. they can be stowed away and take up much less space. A vacuum storage bag is easy to use – simply fill it with out of season clothes or other textiles and then extract the air. Some bags expel the air when they are rolled up, others connect to vacuum cleaners to suck the air out. Once the air has been extracted the bags are smaller and easier to pack into suitcases or store in your closet, wardrobe or attic. Vacuum storage bags are ideal for bulky seasonal items such as winter jackets, blankets and thick duvets. They are very handy for compressing a number of items to save on storage space. They also come in various sizes for packing away anything from small jumpers to king size duvets.
