Always looking to improve my efficient use of limited space , I ordered some of these for the Interstate a few months back and have had my first opportunity to use them today.

They fill easily, air squeezes out, they seal tightly and take up a fraction of the storage space in the small frig that a hard sided container does.

I ordered a set of the 16oz, also a set of varied sizes.

I donít know the brand, but there are many highly rated out there.

Thanks Maggie - those look like a great item to save space and reduce waste. They are ECOBERI brand, available at Amazon and Walmart. There are also similar brands.

Those bags are new to me. How easy is it to get the interior clean all the way into the corners?

I havenít had any problems, tho I donít let food dry and sit for any period of time before washing.

Hot water and Dawn.

I believe they can go in a dishwasher, tho I donít have one.

They are made of same silicon material as our vegetable steamer, and we run it through the dish washer at home all the time.

Since first beginning RV travel in 2001, we have had a series of small, handheld vacuum cleaners, which have all been adequate, but this most recent one is, without a doubt, the best.

Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro Cordless Handheld

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Shark-Ult...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

It is a bit more expensive than the others I have had, but the rotating brush actually cleans pet hair off the seats and throw rugs, and the wide plus narrow (included) wands get all the dirt, sand, etc., from the little areas beneath the cabinet doors and any other tiny area where you may direct it.

And all the non-motorized parts come apart easily for cleaning.

I love it, so there’s my review after 6 weeks or so of use.

That looks very nice, Maggie. I just replaced my cordless Dyson after 2nd new battery died with this https://www.walmart.com/ip/Tineco-PW...B&gclsrc=aw.ds

Don't know how it works yet. I use it in the house also so want a stick.

I'm replacing the foam on my sofa bed on 2007 with this hinged mattress: https://www.tochta.com/hinged-mattress/

I've been sleeping on 5" upholstery foam on top of the existing mattress for 5 years and finally decided to replace the whole mattress. It will still be higher than the 'dinette' seats, but at least it's all one piece and I'll be able to use the sofa again. (fingers crossed)

The Tineco DID NOT WORK. The battery was bad so I bought your recommendation, Maggie. Just used it on my carpeted stairs and couldn't believe what it got up. Thanks for the recommendation. It will fit much better in the van than a stick.

Well, good!

I took the filters and canister parts out and washed them with soap and water last week, then laid them out to dry in the sun.
