Alternatively, you can cut the sticky seal off the self-seal bags to make plain bags if this is better suited to your items. Press seal cello bags have two interlocking plastic strips located just under the bags opening. Slide zip cello bags have a sealing tab up the top of the bag and can be sealed when the tab is pulled along the edge of the bags opening. All of these products can be used to store confectionery, biscuits, cakes, and other products.
