    Question Warm n' Tater vs. regular batting - can you tell a difference?

    I've been making microwavable bowls, and have been using the Wrap and Zap or Warm 'n Tater batting. I came across a pile of batting while in my sewing room, and am not sure what type it is. Is there a way to tell the difference between the kind of batting you can microwave and regular old Warm and Natural? If so, how? They look exactly the same!

    Thanks!
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I don't know but I would try calling the company that makes Warm & Natural. This seems like a question they would get asked alot. If you find out, would you please come back and tell us?

    I remember reading somewhere warm & natural has poly in the scrim, in which case it would probably catch fire in the microwave. I wouldn't use an unknown batt in the bowls. Maybe you could make matching placemats with it?

    Looked the contents of Warm n Natural up. Product description says it is 100% cotton fibers. In the Specifications:
    12% Polypropylene, Cotton Blend
    Checking on polypropylene - Most microwavable plastic food containers are going to be polypropylene. While in general polypropylene is considered to be microwavable, again you would need to check with the manufacture before using in the microwave. ... PET and polycarbonate should not be used for microwaving as they tend to absorb heat.
    I have gone to strictly using Wrap and Zap for the microwavable bowl cosies. Walmart sells it online / pick up in store for a great price.

    When I have left overs of the wrap and zap, I in a label on it before I stick it in the closet.

    Well, you are not alone, Carol! I have a full bolt sitting in my sewing room. I've never made a "potato bag".....do they really work?
    Love the cosies. and they make great little gifts.
