We’ve all been there. it’s time to take the trash out, but no matter how hard you pull and tug at the bag, you can get it to release from the powerful suction of the trash can.

Luckily, there is something simple that can be done to forever solve this problem. Here’s what you do:

Just grab a piece of rigid tubing (this one is copper, but you could use any kind of tube that keeps its shape. Cut the tube so that there’s about 2 inches of space above and below the tube once it’s taped down onto the side of the trash can.


Then, just put your trash bags in as usual. And never again will you have to struggle with pulling that bag out of your trash can. No drilling involved and you’ll never know the tube is even there. Isn’t this brilliant?
