    Default HELP with Soup bowl cozie question

    I seem to have run out or can't find the cotton batting I had. I tried an 80/20 combination piece in the microwave and it seemed to hold up just fine. Would this be okay then to use?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've been leery of using anything except 100% cotton (including threading) with everything on a cozie. I just don't want to take the chance when it's someone else doing the microwaving. So I haven't used any of the 80/20 battings. I have been able to get the 100%'s fairly cheaply and also under the wrap n zap headings.

    Mail strike going on, so ordering on line is out of the question, but thank you.

    Crisis has been averted, I found my bag of 100% cotton batting, I just had to dig a little deeper for it. I knew I had bought some and was sure I hadn't used it all. Thank you.

    NOW, I also found a package of fusible batting I had also bought with Cotton batting in the title. BUT it is 80/20 not 100%. Good thing I checked it before cutting it up.

    Glad you found it! It is a good thing you checked first. I made about 12 last year without knowing my "100%" cotton batting had a poly scrim. I've cut up a few of them for coasters but because of the odd shape after trimming the darts, there's not much I can do with them.

    AMG- keep them for ice cream bowls. Just mark them as no microwave. We use ours for all kinds of things that don't need microwaved. Like a bowl of mac-n-cheese off the stove.

    I've used 80/20 without any problem. I purchased a bolt of cotton from Walmart....really reasonable there, much more pricey on Amazon. It's great stuff to work with. Holds up well and is a little denser than the 80/20. I plan on buying another for cozies. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Pellon-Wr...-Bolt/45863693 $16.95 and free delivery to a store near you.

    I have made, and sold 100's of them. I only use Wrap Zap in them. Most 100% cotton batting, isn't actually 100%. The Pellon Wrap N Zap is made to be used for bowl cozy's and things like potato bags that go in the microwave. I buy my Wrap N Zap from Wal Mart in 90" X 9 yd bolts. Amazon sells it like that as well, but WM is cheaper. Just make sure you don't use them for longer than 2 minutes at a time, and keep an eye on them. I have never had an issue with any I have made or sold, but everything in them is 100% cotton. I have heard of them catching on fire, but never had that happen to me, or any that I have made.

    Auntimern, I'm same as you in what goes into it in the making. I've nuked mine up to 3 1/2 minutes without any problems. Haven't tried longer. I've been using the same for a year now. I just started selling them last Fall. I've had people come up to me this year and say that theirs is still going strong too. So that's nice to hear.
