    Batting

    I want to make some hot pad holders (not for microwave use) with mini charms. Does it matter if I use Insul-Bright or Wrap-N-Zap? I got some WNZ on sale, but now I'm afraid to use it after reading about fires, it can't be agitated in a washing machine cycle, etc. I want these hot pad holders to be useable/washable and not just for decoration.

    If you are making pot holders, you want to use the insulbrite because if you don't you will burn the crap out of your hands. I either use one layer of that and a layer of batting on each side of it, or two layers of the insulbrite and no batting added. I judge it by holding it up to my iron which has been set on high.

      I usually use insulbrite for potholders and hot pads. 1 layer and 2 of cotton batting. If wrap n zap is not washable that would be a deal breaker for any use from me.

        Wrap n zap is washable as long as you have quilted no more than 4".
