I have a lot of plastic bags, and I have a project that could do with a plastic layer (a laptop/handbag/cary-everything-on-a-plane bag), so I was going to fuse some bags to make it. However a nasty experience with some yarn stored in a "biodegradable" plastic bag a few years ago has me reluctant to do so. So:

Is there a way to tell which bags are degradable and which bags are not?

The bags that are printed on are easy, they either say they are, or say to recycle if they're not. It's the plain ones that have me stumped. The only refference I could find said that the degradable ones have a slightly gritty feel, and the non are more slick. I've seperated out a group that feel ever so slightly papery ( is that a word?) do you think that is what they mean by gritty?

Any thoughts will be appreciated!
