lemme see if my husband can find out where his friend got it -- or, yeah, i wanna screen print too! either way ... i'll get back to you!

the wicking thing does sound important -- if I can get these nice and fresh and lovely to use ... could be much better! gotta be easy and sanitary seeming enough to convert my DH -- we got him to use cloth diapers so I know that there is a way!

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

I just picked up some ripstop nylon at Mills End Textiles that was $3.99 a yard.

A site I found claims: This fabric offers a high level of water repellancy combined with breathability & comfort. It features a Supplex microfibre Nylon base cloth that's highly durable, cottony soft, a special micro coating on the back for water repellency that's breathable, & a teflon based durable water repellant finish on the face of the fabric for added protection against the elements. Supplex is wind resistant and water repellant, lightweight and it is very durable & quick to dry.

It sounds like it would work slick but I don't know about the teflon and your food.

Teflon is only unsafe for food if it is heated above 500 degrees.  So it would be OK for a sandwich, unless you guys are making some kind of intense sandwiches I've never heard of  Wink

MAKE WAY FOR THE HOTTEST SANDWICHES ON EARTH!!!!!

well, I am sure, in any case that my hot water in the washer doesn't get that hot, let alone my sandwich and I don't suppose we'd put them in the microwave!

I am leaning towards the rip-stop nylon, for the breathes a bit & can be tossed in the washer and line dried ,,, though vinyl (after finding out which type is "food-safe") or oil cloth would be good too.

I have a sandwich wrap that I purchased. It is lined with vinyl, to wipe clean. I use it a lot and love it! I have also made them using vinyl tablecloth. I think I like these other ideas better, for the next time I make some.

EowynUlysses -- so glad to hear form someone who has some and has made some. The tablecloth is a great idea too. Hmmmm. Perhaps I will try all 4 options and see which ones we end up using the most!

You could get some outdoor fabric. Like the stuff used for lawn chair cushions. I see a ton at Jo-annes all the time.
