  • DIY SuperPail Step-by-Step

    |2 COMMENT(S)

    The Do-It-Yourself SuperPail ™ Combo is an excellent way for you to store your favorite bulk foods in your long-term storage.

    And it’s really simple to do—just pick one of the methods we’ve outlined below, and follow the steps. Easy peasy.

     Package your favorite bulk foods in our Super Pail combos

    Method One:

    1. Fill your metallized bag with dried product (not too full or you’ll have a hard time getting a good seal and fitting it into the bucket).
    2. Insert oxygen absorber.
    3. Heat-seal the metallized bag using a warm iron or industrial sealer.
    4. The easiest way to do this is to lay the bag down and place a board or other sturdy (and heat-safe) object under the edge of the bag, then pass over it with the iron.
    5. Be sure to get a complete seal; otherwise the bag won’t serve its purpose.
    6. Place the sealed bag inside the bucket and place the lid on top to close.

     

    Method Two:

    (Illustrated in the image above)

    1. Place the metallized bag inside the bucket and fold the excess over the lip of the bucket.
    2. Fill the bag with dried product.
    3. Insert oxygen absorber.
    4. Heat-seal the metallized bag using either a flat iron (a hair-styling tool) or a clothes iron and a piece of board to help you get a good seal.

    Now step back and take a look at all you’ve accomplished. New skill? Check. Bulk storage of your favorite dried foods? Check. General awesomeness? Check check.

    Six-gallon SuperPails hold an amount of food equal to about eight #10 cans. In addition to saving you money, the pails are stackable, so they save space in tight storage areas. Each item (except honey) is sealed in a metallized bag and has an oxygen absorber enclosed.
