More Product Details
Dimensions Folded: 5" W x 6" H (varies depending what's inside) Open: 12" W x 12.5" H
Design & Functionality Simply fold around sandwiches, veggie sticks, cookies and other goodies, fold the cotton wrapper closed, secure with the Velcro® closure, and food stays put. To top it off, these smart reusable sandwich wrappers unfold into placemats! The FDA-approved, food-grade lining easily wipes clean after every use and is certified by the manufacturer to be totally BPA, phthalate and lead-free. (Still concerned about plastic? A great customer suggestion is to wrap sandwiches with biodegradable wax paper inside the Wrap-N-Mat.) They're durable and will give you hundreds and hundreds of reuses.
Materials Outer shell is made of cotton/polyester. Lining is made of LDPE (#4) plastic. All wraps are manufactured to meet all FDA guidelines to be in contact with food. Wrap-N-Mats are 100% BPA, phthalate and lead-free. LDPE differs from PEVA (what some other Wrap-N-Mats are made with) in a few ways. First, it's not sticky- some people prefer the LDPE for this reason, whereas others like the PEVA because it clings to itself like plastic wrap. LDPE also has hash marks, sometimes mistaken for scratches. This marking develops in the final step of manufacture, but it's only superficial. LDPE is very strong and should not tear with regular use.
Please note: We are aware that the LDPE material appears to have hash marks in the lining. These markings are not cuts nor defects in any way and will NOT lessen the durability of the wrap. .
Sustainability When used in place of disposable plastic baggies, each Wrap-N-Mat has the potential to eliminate 1000s of plastic bags over its lifetime, saving you money at the same time. As part of a waste-free lunch kit, these reusable wraps can ultimately help you consume less over time.
Care Instructions Hand wash in warm water and air dry. Not recommended for use with hot items. Do not heat or use in the microwave.

Wrap-N-Mats are made to last, but after a few years you may need to replace yours. But don't throw out your worn out, ripped or cracked Wrap-N-Mats! Instead, tear out the liner and use the cloth to wrap up non-food items like crayons or small toys for traveling with kids.
Comments about Product:We use these all the time for school lunches and picnics. It is so nice that it folds out to become a placemat. Another plus is it can fit any sized bread/bagel and you don't have to mangle your sandwich to get it in. I only wish they came in fun fabrics and that the USA one was a little less expensive.
Comments about Product:I accidentally ordered the ones made in China and then reordered the made in the USA Wrap-N-Mats. It was totally worth the extra buck or two! Much better quality - they look nicer, clean up better, and last longer. I have had them for a year now for my son and just ordered more for my daughter who starts Kindergarten in the fall.
Comments about Product:I love the idea of this product. It's a waterproof and compact way to pack a sandwich for lunch at work or when out and about with the kids. Unfortunately, the construction did not match the great idea. I was so disappointed when the velcro tab fell off within the first month's use. As a busy mom, I don't want to have to sew anything together after recently purchasing it. There's plenty of other things to keep me busy. Without the velcro tab this doesn't hold unless you have it securely placed inside of a small lunch sac.
Comments about Product:Easy to use, great for sandwiches. I use just a little soap and hand wash it. Too much soap just takes longer/more water to rinse out. Hang dry. I have used for two months and no wear or tear yet.
Comments about Product:I love this Wrap-N-Mat. I am always looking for ways to save the environment from the endless supply of plastic. These are just the right size for a sandwich and they keep my desk at work clean!
Comments about Product:My daughter just started kindergarten. I am a fanatic about her touching "things" or laying her food on the tables. I put the mat in her lunch box and she uses it to put her food on. I have not used it as a sandwich wrap. I put her sandwhiches in a container a Fresh and Fit POD with removable ice pack. I just wipe them off or rinse them in the sink and lay out to dry. I love that they are MADE IN THE USA! These cost a little more, but they have much better colors, especially for girls.
Comments about Product:I got the wrap-n-mat in the pink checker and I love it! It holds a sandwich or a bagel nicely. I also love having a placemat to eat off of. Super easy to clean too. Highly recommend!
Comments about Product:Love this product! Would love the eco friendly pattern available as part of the "made in the U.S.A" selection or a similar pattern. Buying the "Kelly" green which will be my second WRAP N MAT. Thanks for such a simply GREAT product!
Comments about Product:This works great as a sandwich or other food wrapper. Much easier to pack sandwiches in as opposed to stuffing them into other types of bags. Design is a bit bland but overall good. A clear option would be great.
Comments about Product:I've used these for lunch to crafts projects and everything in-between. Extremely durable and easy to clean. Just wash in the sink with your dishes. Just do them first so the fabric does not get funky with grease. I highly recommend them. Nice way to reduce your lunch footprint. No need for a separate plate!
Comments about Product:This is our third set, but mostly because we have moved and lost the others. Although we did lose a few to the dryer due to my neglect. They are good hand-washed or even machine washed in cold water then line dried. I bought another set for a gift.
Comments about Product:I bought several of these and love them. They keep sandwiches fresh, and you can adjust the size somewhat which is nice because my son only eats half a sandwich. Washing is extremely easy and they dry quickly.
Comments about Product:My husband has used a wrap'n'mat regular around his sandwiches on oversized bread and really likes taking it to work. It makes a nice placemat under his sandwich at his desk or in the cafeteria. Keeps everything together and is easy to wipe clean or launder--just don't put 'em in the dryer. I've also used a boringly designed one to keep vegetarian cold cuts in the refridgerator. It's been at least 8 days and the cold cuts are still in great shape. If this works out for wrapping cheese and things in the fridge, we'll be able to use less plastic. We also liked being able to save by buying 3 or more at once from Reuseit.com. My whole family will be using these wraps on outings and in lunch bags.
Comments about Product:These wrap-n-mats are great. I particularly like them for wrapping up things like carrots, celery, grape tomatoes and cucumbers. For those items I prefer the mat to a pouch style bag. They are also perfect for a man sized sandwich.
Comments about Product:I love my large Wrap-N-Mats. I use them to wrap sandwiches and other dry stuff up in for lunches. My middle school daughter said all her friends think they are really cool, especially since they fold out to make a place mat. I always feel I've hit the jackpot when I find something functional, green, and made in USA. Clean up is easy, just wipe down plastic and air dry. Spot clean cloth cover.
Comments about Product:I am trying to do all that I can to be "green." I've noticed that when I eat out I usually have half of the food left to take home. And that had meant plastic or styrofoam boxes. :( The very nice looking mat/wrap takes care of that nicely, plus it keeps at least one restaurant box out of the landfill that day! It's so easy to go green this way. Thank you reuseit.com!
Comments about Product:This product is very simple, looks home-made. The interior plastic had a few snags on it but no tear so I'm okay with it. I looked at these many times before purchasing finally and they are decent, but they did look nicer to me on the website.
Comments about Product:I love the Wrap-N-Mats, I've been using them for a few years now and I just wanted more because sometimes my husband and I get forgetful and leave them at the office. They're so much better than plastic bags because they also serve as a placemat, so you are also sparing the potential waste of a paper plate or napkins/paper towels. I used to continue using plastic while my husband was using the mats because I was convinced that it wouldn't keep my sandwich fresh - no such problem. I use preservative-free bread from a local market and it stays fresh even when I make my sandwich the night before. I paid a little more to purchase the mats made in the USA; nothing against China, but I'd rather support my own country's economy.
Comments about Product:I was tired of wasting money and using so much plastic to pack my 6 year old son's lunch. I love this wrap and mat to send his sandwich in now. He likes it b/c it is "cool" and teachers and friends commented on it. He also uses it as a placemat. I think it cleans up well and easily too!
Comments about Product:I bought 2 of these on a whim for my husband and I to take to work. My size works perfectly and holds the messiest PB&J and other sandwiches oozing out mustard. The inside had a thick plastic that cleans off easily and quickly. My husband needs a bigger size for his overloaded meals. We are saving at least a few sandwich bags a week.
Comments about Product:We wasted so many plastic baggies on storing Tofurkey slices and other meat-substitute products that either collected moisture and allowed yucky stuff to grow or weren't sealed enough and dried out the product. When I saw these, wrap mats, I snapped them up. They are absolutely perfect! We also use them for small sandwiches.
Comments about Product:These are a great alternative to plastic sandwich baggies. I use them to wrap up my tofurkey slices once I open them up, and also use them for sandwiches. I am now looking for the "grande" size that was sold for awhile for larger sandwiches on rolls, and to wrap up tofu dogs, etc, which are a bit larger than the standard sandwich size. I highly recommend these.
Comments about Product:I bought two on a whim last year. I've gotten two more since then and am considering getting the larger size. I feel like a spokesperson every time I use them at work. I think they are great because when I'm out with my toddlers we use them as place mats and I can hand or machine was them. They dry quickly and have definitely helped me cut down on plastic use. I've started giving them with gifts...
Comments about Product:I was afraid the Wrap-N-Mat might not keep things fresh, but I was wrong. Even when I pack my lunch the night before, my sandwich stays fresh. I would definitely recommend this product.
Comments about Product:The Wrap-N-Mat is perfectly awesome! I work outdoors and pack a sandwich nearly every day for lunch and this thing rocks! No more wasting plastic baggies or tinfoil. Even peanut butter and jelly wipes clean, and it's machine washable. Sandwiches of all sizes fits easily. I just love, love, love it!!
Comments about Product:I have several of these, they work like a dream and open up like a built-in placemat, so you don't have to worry about even using a plate. They wipe clean and I recently put one through the washer and it survived perfectly (of course I line-dry them with a clothes pin). If you love sandwiches, these are a must-have!
Comments about Product:My husband and I each use one every day and we love them! They’re easy to use, keep food secure and fresh and are a snap to clean. When making a sandwich, we’re careful not to cut directly on the wrap-n-mat to be safe, but they are very durable and well constructed.
Comments about Product:My daughter loves having her sandwich wrapped in this for school. It doubles as a place mat, so she thinks that's cool. Cleanup is easy. I wash it if it's sticky, but it's usually just crumbs that I can wipe off with a wet cloth. It does not keep the sandwich as fresh as I would like, so I don't put the sandwich into the mat until just before she leaves for school. It would be nice if there was a ziploc-type element to the mat.
Comments about Product:The Wrap-N-Mat is great. It fits sandwiches of all sizes, which is what I was looking for. I eat wheat bread and many of the brands I get are bigger than the average slice of bread and therefore, do not fit in the re-useable sandwich bags. The mat part is nice because then I don't have to use a plate, and because it is plastic, the crumbs slide of nicely into the trash and if there is any moisture from the sandwich it easily wipes off. I have only had it for a couple of months, but it seems to be pretty study.
Comments about Product:I make my lunch just about every day for work and hated all the plastic bags and/or plastic wrap I was using & throwing away...not to mention the fact that they are PLASTICS. I really like using the Wrap N Mat. Very easy to use and clean. I will be buying more of these in the future. Thanks!
Comments about Product:I bought these to replace sandwich-sized ziploc bags in the kids' lunches. They work great; when they eat lunch they fold it out, and have a 'placemat' to eat on, too. My guys are 10 and 13 and can be a little rough on things; I bought 3 bags and all 3 are still in great shape 6 mo later! I love never going near the plastic bag section in the store anymore!
