How to seal ice melter bags
 
Any suggestions for sealing 50lb bags of ice melter once they are opened?

Perhaps something along the lines of an extra-large bag clip?

Seems like there ought to be a ready-made solution, but I could not find anything on line...

Well Yowah! Put it in a bucket or a tub with a snap on lid...that's what I do with it.:)

I always used good plastic containers for all sorts of dry bagged things.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I'm looking for a way to seal the *bag*.

Buy several potato chip bag clips--They are spring clamps with an 8 inch jaw---In the chip isle at the grocery store--

Why?

There are countless things you can do to "seal" the bag - everything from using a piece of duct tape, to rolling it down & putting a chip bag clap on it.

Use a few big binder clips. Find them at any office supplies store. I use them for all sorts of things and they are pretty strong.

could use a plastic tie strap or a piece of rope or butcher cord string. maybe some duct tape could also work......

plastic saran wrap it ...fold down the open part and wrap it around

I have a bag of calcium chloride that has been sitting open in the basement since last winter. Is that a problem?

Should still work---but it will be all stuck together in one big lump.
