I came across this amazing tip for keeping your decorating bags clean. You take a piece of saran wrap and place your icing on the lower left portion, not too close to the edge and start rolling it diagonally. Tie the upper portion in a knot and twist the lower portion into a tip. Put your coupler in first and then the icing and pull the tip of the saran wrap through and cut off the tip close to the coupler. Place your tip on and decorate away. When you are done you just pull out the saran wrap and your bag is clean. Even if the icing is not finished you can change your icing and always place the other one back into the bag at any time to use it again. It makes decorating so much faster and clean up super fast, it is really just your tips and couplers that you have to clean and you don't need to fill up so many decorating bags with different colors, just little pouches of saran wrap!!!!!

I'm not quite sure I get how you make the saran wrap pouches. It sounds like a great idea to have to only use one bag. But how do you do the pouches?

The clear zip plastic storage bags does the same trick. I use the quart size. You could even use them by themselves. Just push the tip in the corner of the bag until it pierces through the bag. Fill with icing , push out air and zip the top and then decorate. The bags are also easy to refil.
