OT reusable sandwich bags

what are these made out of and where can I find that plastic-y stuff?  

I love the Planet Wise ones, and I do have one I received as a gift.  $5 (on clearance) just seems like a crazy price to spend on a small snack bag when it's just a square piece of fabric.

Re: OT reusable sandwich bags

  • I don't know, but I agree.  I have a couple and they work great for transporting ds's tableware, bibs, and a couple unpaper towels for cleaning him up when we're going to be out at a meal time.  I don't like putting his bibs with his diapers since the bibs have a tendency to get caught on everything when I forget to check to make sure they are closed tight before washing.

  • though I just looked…..Nicki's has sandwich and window bags for only 2.99.  Might be worth it.   I think I'm going to order some

    Just thinking of all the other things on my to-do list and for 3 bucks each, it'd be worth it I think instead of making them (and possibly that taking a month) lol

  • I found the aplix closure to be pretty air tight.  Though…I've not put bread in there before.  If I bring bread I would put it into a container.

    I have these and really like them :) DH likes them better than the ones I made with leftover PUL so I bought a handful as stocking stuffers. I just toss wipe them out after each use unless they smell or have something stuck on them. Then I toss in the wash and lay out to dry. DH uses them pretty much daily and the seal is awesome. We've never had stale bread.

  • I have the keep leaf and I love them. I just wash them with dish soap and water. Worth the $6 each to me as I don't use plastic baggies.

  • We have the planet wise ones and i hate them.  i think they're such a pain to clean with that fabric layer on the outside.  i've had more than one turn moldy because i didn't get that stupid plastic dry enough.

    Oh I hope that doesn't happen to ours. I've only had them a couple of months.

    we have some wahm made ones that are just PUL (i assume pul anyway) and they're awesome.  i want to make a handful to have extras on hand for when M starts school next fall and i need to pack his lunch
    Is PUL food safe though?

    I didn't think so. Or at least it hadn't been tested for food safety the last time I've checked.

  • I made some various ones... And wasn't too thrilled. I'm still in love with Pyrex. We'll see how all this changes with a toddler one of these days.

    I don't have any real experience with real ones though. :(

    I am fairly certain the Pul I get from wazoodle is food safe. It's all US or canada made.

  • but PUL isn't like that stiff plastic.  I was hoping for something just like the PW ones :-/

    Bummis is replacing my wetbag with one that has "food grade PUL". They said the bonding process to the fabric is different, but I don't know if there are other differences that make it "food grade".

  • But five dollars EACH? That seems so expensive

  • Yeah I'm doing a bit of research to see if I can find some prewaxed food safe cotton fabric.

    And of course that got me wondering if that would work for a CD cover......but decided no, since hot water would melt the beeswax and everything would repell....okay, I admit to dreaming now and them.
