Reusable Sandwich and Snack Bags

Are you tired of buying disposable sandwich and Ziplock bags? Do you hate using plastic? Would you rather serve your family snacks and sandwiches in bags that lasted longer? Then cloth sandwich and snack bags are for you!

Lola, from whom I purchased my cloth menstrual pads, also sells reusable bags for food. She sent me one to try out, and I must say I like it.

The bag itself is made of attractive cotton on the outside and nylon on the inside. The nylon is waterproof and food safe, containing no PVC, phthalate or BPA, or polyurethane. The top closes with a strip of Velcro.

I first tested mine (in the cute apple print shown above) with a crumbly food - crackers. I didn't have any trouble with the crumbs getting into the Velcro. Then I tried a wet food - apple slices. Afterward, I turned the bag inside out and wiped it clean with soap and water. After it dried, I tried a sticky food - raisins. Afterward, I turned the bag inside out and stuck it in the washer, then the dryer.

There, I made a mistake. Some lint got in the Velcro. But I was able to pick it out pretty easily. Another time, I'll be more careful what I wash with the bag. Lola recommends only using the delicate cycle and air drying.

The bags come in all sorts of prints - from cute dinosaurs and rocket ships for little guys, to football team logos for big guys, to pretty florals for women, and fun characters (like Dora) for little girls.

And because Lola is such a great gal, she's offering a 10% discount to all Proverbs 31 Woman readers!
