Bubble wrap is traditionally used for packaging breakable items, and popping it to distress. However, there is more to it than that. Here are 5 new uses for this versatile product:

Ideas for reusing bubble wrap

1. Want to save money on your heating bill this winter? Try using bubble wrap to insulate your windows. This is really quick and simple to do: just trim the bubble wrap to size and fit it with the bubble side facing the window. It will stick naturally if the window is damp but can be secured with tape. Also prevents the neighbours spying on you.
