Fernando commented on Upcycling single-use plastic bags and sachets in Tanzania

Thanks for your comment! I had not thought of adding repellent but I think it would be quite tricky since adding any sort of liquid to the plastic makes it impossible to thermally fuse. I have already had problems with incomplete fusion if the plastic is not completely dry after washing.
I think the only way it could work is if we used a non-liquid repellent. I don't know much about this topic. Do you have any ideas?
