Freezing bread and reusing the bags

lamb_da_calculus | May 15, 201504:26 PM

I freeze my bread in your standard generic-brand gallon freezer bags. Since I don't really feel like the bags are getting "dirty" just storing bread, whenever I finish a loaf I usually just shake the bag out and reuse it.

So my question is, at what point (if any) does this become a bad idea? Assuming there aren't any obvious rips or tears do plastic freezer bags degrade in other ways? The little letters and design printed on the bag have started wearing away, but I don't know what the significance of that would be.

Thanks!
