I think someone once said they used an Ikea bag for the discrete carrying of a full cassette to a public loo for emptying.

Having just moved house one of our bags is currently being used to store clothes waiting to be washed. At our old house there was plenty of utility room space to just sort dirty laundry into washing baskets so we don't have a linen basket. We did use a Ikea bag though to weigh washing with luggage scales before putting it in the machine.

Yep, Chris. Weighing anything awkward luggage scales.

That's how I weighed everything that came out of the van one year.

And discovered we had 30kg of books with us. That cost us 2 kindles!

I have to take the top box off the scooter to get it in the van garage, I then put the topbox in the Ikea bag and tie the handles together before putting it in the garage- has kept it good for the last 6 years.

Brilliant for storing the hookup cable, especially when wet, muddy and rigid with cold (the cable that is).
