    Has anyone found ziplock bags for the DIY First Aid Kits that are clear and has no writing on the outside?

    Also, what is the best recommended size for these bags, quart??

    Thanks!

      We used a quart size baggie and usually if you buy store brand they have nothing written on them, like target brand has nothing written on them, grocery stores usually have their own brand too with nothing written on them.

        They also have the at the craft stores. You can get about 50 for around $3. Hope this helps.

            I found mine at the Dollar Tree - a box of quart sized bags for a buck!  Not sure if you have a dollar store near you but I would suggest checking it out :o)

              I found mine at the dollar store too....and they were in the "crafting" section.  They had actual ziploc type food bags in the food storage section too but the crafting ones are a little thicker, I thought people might throw the first aid stuff in their bag/purse and use the bag to keep their camera from the sand/water or something!

                I used sandwich size bags - I prefer Glad over Ziplock but neither one had any writing on them.  They are a bit thinner than the quart size bags but the first aid fit without a problem.  I had checked in the craft stores also but only found ones with open tops and didn't want to have to tie them all.

                  Michaels has some nice zipper type baggies as well in the bead section usually :)

                      Ended up getting really good quality thick ones from target with no writing on them for just a couple of bucks. Has the zipper too which makes it easier. Thanks!
