I've never heard of these before either. I'd love to try this. Does someone have a pic of one that is wrapped around a sandwich?

is linseed oil edible? isn't it flammable? like for refinishing furniture you need to lay your rags out flat to dry so they don't burst into flames.

linseed oil is flax oil. I use food grade flax oil. It's not going to be flamable unless you leave a pile of oily rags in a place that gets warm, like your garage. Your sandwich cloths will be dry before you put them away.

cool, learn something new everyday!

so, I cut up a cheap thin flannel sheet to make cloth napkins but it is getting greasy stains and fraying really bad. but the thick plaid flannel sheet isn't showing any signs of wear at all. hmm, and it kind of sticks to itself, wouldn't need to use velcro...

nobody is interested enough to fold them, so they just get dumped in a bag hanging at kid level. I'd like to get a square flat basket and at least lay them out flat. and a flat basket for the oiled wrappers and we'd be all set.

we are down to less than a roll of paper towels a month!
Thanks guys!

Wow that it so cool and simple! I've been looking at oil cloth but haven't ordered any - now I can just use what I have! Yay!

I'm so glad for this thread, too. Can I ask, for a well-oiled bit of fabric, about how long does it take to "dry"? I think I might have over oiled the cloth. Does it have to be thick cloth? I was tempted to go get some canvas, but it seemed kinda silly to go out and buy fabric when I've got a house full already, lol, so I used some jersey I had around but it's been hanging for a day and a half and is still greasy to the touch... Anybody want to set me straight?

Ok, an update on my thin fabric foray into oilcloth.

It worked great, just took 3 whole days to dry. My mother is enjoying her birthday present now, just a couple of days late.

Awesome thread! I'm gonna have to try to make some of these. It didn't even occur to me that I could sew these instead of buying 'em. Thanks!

Getting crunchier all the time...

Does anyone have more info (or perhaps a link to another thread) about the soft lunch boxes?? I had not heard of this before -- and would like some more info.

TIA!
