Instead of vinyl you could try a fabric called PUL (found on the internet).  It's fabric with a waterproof backing.

PUl is also sold at Hancocks now - Yeah. I'm a little slow on this one.  I just made one out of PUL and cotton and am testing it tonight to see how fresh my piece of bread is in the morning.... I figure if it can be fresh after 14 hours then it will be perfect for lunchtime..
At Hancocks you have to ask for BabyDry - it is $9.99 a yard or $10.99 a yard depending on the thickness of the pul I suppose... I got the thinner of the two - and you can sew through it and it is very machine washable since it is intended for diapers and whatnot....

Sorry it took me so long to add my two cents on this one!

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

PUL is even cheaper than that if you buy it from co-ops, because the members of the co-ops are working together to meet the minimums set by the manufacturers....

I suppose it is nice that Hancock is selling it now, given that back in the day I couldn't find it anywhere in a brick and morter store....even if their mark-up is kinda sucktastic...

I'm wondering if one could use the fused grocery bags on the inside, if you wash them (the heat from the iron would sterilize if there was anything on there, wouldn't they?) first?  I have washed things made with the fused grocery bags before, and it seems like it worked well enough....then you could extend the recycling going on and further keep trash out of landfills.

I love this! I think I might whip one up this weekend from the suggested freezer bag. Or might just suck it up and get some vinyl! I breathe in more bad stuff from pollution outside than I ever would from contamination via plastics >.>

I have seen oilcloth used for the inside of sandwitch wraps.  Long ago I found a tute online for making oilcloth.

i think i might have missed something, but how does this work as a sandwich wrap?

« Reply #17 on: January 17, 2009 02:49:21 PM »

You wrap a sandwich inside it, kind of like how butchers wrap a hunk of meat.  You set the sandwich in the center of the wrap (vinyl side up), then fold the sides into the middle (over the sandwich), then the bottom, and last, the top.  It's kind of like making your own sandwich envelope.
