Your stomach is rumbling and you are looking forward to a quick snack. You reach into your favorite chip bag, pull one out and bite right into a stale chip.

Step 2

Slide your hand upward to force out any air inside the bag.

Step 3

Start at the top edge of the bag and fold the bag in 2-inch increments away from you in a downward direction.


Step 4

Continue to fold the bag until the fold is 1 to 2 inches from the chips. Avoid folding the bag too close to the chips, as this may crush them.

Step 5

Hold the fold in place and use your thumbs to bend the top corners of the bag toward you, in the opposite direction of the downward fold.

Step 6

Keep your thumbs in place to hold the corner folds and flip the top fold back over the corners.
