The Wrap-N-Mat Regular is an excellent way to keep a sandwich fresh until lunch time without adding more plastic bag garbage to the local landfill.
I have used several of these for years and have never had one wear out. When I replace one it's either because I gave one of mine to a friend who wanted to try it or because I lost it. I have never had one wear out.
This is the second wrap n mat that I have purchased. While I use the bags for our cut vegetables and fruit lunch snacks. The wrap n mat is wonderful for the sandwiches because it adapts to different bread sizes easily. It is very practical item for sandwiches. My husband and I both use them five days a week. They are super easy to clean and I am still very pleased that I am not using plastic sandwich bags every day and then disposing them into landfills.
On a recent ski trip, I saved so much money and ate healthy with this product. Instead of spending $15+ on over-processed lunch on the slopes, I made a sandwich in the morning, wrapped it up with some fruit slices, and slipped it in my jacket pocket. Ta da! Cheap/healthy lunch whenever I wanted without a wait in line. My ski buddy was so impressed, I just came back to ordered a few for him.
this is really cool because it's got 2 uses in one item. It is really easy to clean.
I received a Wrap N Mat as a gift 6 years ago and it is still in tip top shape! We have purchased two regular size ones and one large in the past two years and I have no complaints. I love that once it is opened, you have an instant place mat. This product keeps bread from drying out. We were at a picnic, my son left his sandwich out and the bread dried out. I placed it in the Wrap N Mat and hours later he ate the sandwich and the bread was more moist then when I put it back in. I have a lot of people ask us about ours when we are out and I only have great things to say about this product. This Christmas everyone got one as a gift.
I really enjoy the Wrap-N-Regular; I don't feel bad about buying and throwing away zip lock bags as before so I feel like I'm doing a small part to reduce waste. Plus my wrap-n-mat is cute!
I love the Wrap-n-mats! I had 3 that I have used for the past 5 years but finally had to replace one. Just think of all the plastic baggies that I have saved during that time fixing 2 lunches a day. I have had so many people ask me where I got them.
Seriously, I love these. They are so durable and easy to clean. Besides sandwiches, I've also wrapped a cut up apple, slices of cukes, baby carrots, and other "wet" stuff. Haven't put a sandwich in a plastic bag in 3 years!
These are so nice because they turn into a placemat. Having volunteered at lunchtime a few times, I really appreciate that my kids have a clean surface to eat off of, instead of a bilge-water-wiped surface. My daughter says other kids were a little jealous of hers! While my daughter eats a regular sandwich, my son likes to have just ham and cheese slices. I like that they can accommodate anything flat-ish. One note, though: the colors aren't very bright. The photo makes the green look like a kelly green but it's actually a forest green. I think if they worked on some improved fabrics that were cuter, these would be way more popular.
I had found these years ago in a catalog's clearance section and have been using them ever since. They don't really wear out but I was glad to find them again just to have a few more in the house. Sandwiches stay fresh and having a built in mat to eat off of is so helpful. Also, they take up less space in a lunchbox than a plastic container. Just wipe clean and let air dry - couldn't be easier!
I used this at work for the first time a couple of days ago, and got lots of positive comments on it - even from folks who are not "green" in practice.
It fit my sandwich well and more importantly it kept it as fresh as if it WERE packed in a zip-loc bag.
I also like the fact that it gives me a clean place to put my sandwich, and associated 'sides', down on my desk.
I purchased the red and white checked version for a "picnic" feel - a nice mini escape in the midst of a work day.
Clean up was a breeze, though my sandwich was only peanut butter. But I assume more drippy sandwiches should clean up just as easily. The outer surface is fabric, but the instructions say it can be washed by hand in warm water.
I am extremely happy with this purchase, and will be getting another for myself, as well as a few for gifts.
I love the wrap-n-mat! It makes it easy to bring a sandwich in my bag, on the go. It's easy to clean - just wipe down the plastic side. They are also eye-catching - just yesterday, someone stopped me to ask me where I had purchased my red gingham wrap. Love it!
Can't say enough positives about this little wrap. My kids use them all the time so I ordered more! I have not needed plastic baggies in weeks and look forward to continuing this environmentally friendly habit!
Sturdy construction on the inside and fun, soft fabric on the outside. Folds easily and is well designed to hold loose pieces of food like grapes, chips or pretzels and they won't fall out!
I have ordered many things from your site and this one is in my top 5 favorites!
This product is absolutely wonderful and versatile. We primarily use it for lunchbox sandwiches.. no more baggies! Folds out nicely, offers ample space and protection for foods from surfaces, easy to use and very easy to clean. The Wrap-N-Mat is made of durable materials and the color options are fun and neutral. Definitely worth the small investment.
Happy with my purchase. Easy to clean, dries quick, and food stays moist inside.
My co-workers and I are working towards making a green office. I saw this product and decided to buy them as gifts for my co-workers. They absolutely loved the idea that it is reusable and it serves as a sandwich bag and a placemat. Such a genius concept. I bought one for myself, and I find it durable and the perfect alternative to plastic sandwich bags.
I've been looking for an alternative to the sandwich ziplock bags for a while now, but I always found the velcro bags too large or didn't hold in enough moisture. I've tried zipper bags but again the sandwiches dry out over time. So far I'm really liking the wrap-n-mat's. I can pack one or even two sandwiches and then wrap tightly around them. The one small complaint I have is that I wish the velcro strip was a little longer so when I have a small sandwich I could still close it. As it is, I wrap it up and then tuck it in my son's lunch box so that it doesn't come unraveled.
I hated using plastic baggies and tossing them out to hold my sandwiches. This thing is great! I use it when I have wraps that don't fit in my sandwich container. I'm sure I could use it for a lot more, too. Way to be waste free :)
Wrap-N-Mat is wonderful! It's so great that it folds out into your own personal table mat :)
These are super practical, and I get regular words of admiration from friends at work!
I am so happy with this one--others did not keep sandwiches, cheese, etc. fresh, but this one does! I like having a placemat and sandwich bag all in one neat package.
This sandwich mat is very easy to use and easy to clean (both big pluses around here!). We are likely to buy more once we see how well they've held up (right now, we've used it for a week).
I love this mat. My friend told me about them and I wish I would have known about them years ago. When they fold out you have a nice place mat, which is so helpful. They also keep sandwiches fresh. Love them!
We use the Wrap 'n Mats daily for our granddaughter's lunch. One major advantage of these is that when they are opened, she has a clean table mat on which to eat her lunch. Easy to clean, we use them over and over and over. This is the only product we have used that provides the food container and a clean, smooth eating surface. Absolutely WONDERFUL!
I always pack my lunch for work (and sometimes my breakfast, if I'm running a little behind), and this is great for a sandwich or a bagel on the go. I love that it doubles as a sandwich "bag" and placemat, so I have a clean surface on which to place my lunch. It's very quick and easy -- just prepare the sandwich on its surface, then fold it up and it closes with Velcro. Fabric on the outside and plastic-lined on the inside, it's easy to wipe clean. Also, it keeps the sandwich fresh longer than you might expect -- it doesn't end up dry after a few hours or anything like that.
I came back to buy some more. The Wrap-N-Mat fits different size sandwiches, easy to clean and creates a great place mat to eat off of. Easily makes up for the cost of plastic bags.
I use my wrap-n-mat to bring sandwiches to work. It is great because I am not using wasteful plastic wrap or aluminum foil. It is pretty easy to clean. I usually wipe it down with lemon juice and water and let it air dry. After heavy use I usually hand wash it, and let it air dry.
Great wrap mat for a sandwich or anything flat. Easy to clean and great look too. It has attracted lots of interest at work.
i love the functionality of the wrap-n-mat as well as the available colors! it's also a great talking piece for co-workers and family members who have not yet converted to a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
I really love this wrap-n-mat! It's easy to use, easy to clean, looks great and very helpful as a place mat when you're eating at a public bench. I bought one but now I want a second and my mom is jealous so I'm going to get some for her for Christmas. I couldn't be more happy about this product.
I bought 3 of these 4 years ago and are still using them today for my kids lunches. I recently purchased these for a friend who was wanted to reduce waste in her families lunches. I get comments about them all the time. Their teachers think they are so cool because they make a mat for them to put all their lunch stuff on instead of on the tables in the cafeteria.
Excellent product. I normally use a small plastic bag to wrap my sandwitch but imagine how many of the box I must buy. Wrap-N-Mat takes care of it. Very eco friendly and exacly how I want it. Just one thing, some times when I make my sandwitch big, it was very hard for me to wrap it. Maybe in the future, you can creat different size of Wrap-N-Mat??
I like this product because I know longer need to use bulky tupperware or baggies. They are easy to wash and set out to dry and ready for the next day. Great product.
my husband and i use these everyday to wrap our sandwiches for work. much easier to use than a ziploc, i love having the "placemat" to use since i eat at my desk 90% of the time, and easy to wash. just bought another to wrap my sesame bagel in to bring to work for breakfast. i've had my original green one for years now and it's still going strong. buy these, you won't regret it.
I love the Wrap-N-Mat. I do wish, however, it came in more masculine fabrics.
I bought one of these awhile back for my husband's lunch because I couldn't stand using so many ziplock bags every day. I liked it so much that I bought 2 more for my son and myself so we can pack sandwiches for picnics. I love that the inside is easy to clean, and I love that the velcro is adjustable depending on the thickness of the sandwich. They keep the bread soft, and they also seem to protect the sandwich from getting squished. I also love that this just opens up into a placemat, perfect for my 3 year old. Highly recommend this product!
The sandwich bag is a great find, not only does it allow you to pack a large sandwich but it also cleans easily. I've had 2 of theses and the first one lasted 2 years before finally giving out! The knit cotton bags are great for shopping in the fruit and vegetable isles. Thanks for the great products and more than reasonable prices.
These are perfect for practically everything I put in my children's lunches. I use them for sandwiches, sliced veggies, crackers, even the occasional surprise cookie. :) Putting these, non-sandwich, items in the wrap-n-mat makes them lie flat in the lunch box so they take up much less room. Very easy to clean, as one might imagine. Wipe and hang to dry. I have a reusable items drying line over my sink. You will not be sorry you purchased these.
The wrap n mat is a nice item to wrap a sandwich. The mat works perfectly and is simple to clean.
Well made, easy to clean and durable. I love the Wrap-N-Mat!
I love my Wrap-N-Mats. They fit larger slices of bread than plastic bags do, and the bread is still fresh at lunch time 8 hours after it was packed. I especially like that it opens to a clean mat to eat from. It's handy for resting your silverware and lunch on, instead of tables of questionable cleanliness. A quick swipe or two, and they're ready for the next day.
Love this product. Use at least twice/week!
I love my sandwich mat. It is perfect for sandwiches and is easy to clean. Say goodbye to plastic bags!
I now have a few of these because I like them so much. I just toss in the wash maching and air dry.
Bought two of these for our family and a bunch to give as gifts for the holidays two years ago. It will accommodate most sizes of bread and I love the idea that I'm not using plastic bags anymore for my sandwiches. I also love that you can use it as a placemat. To be honest, I don't tend to pack anything other than sandwiches in it. I think I've only put grapes in it. Will probably get one of the snack pouches for my snack foods – which would also make it easier for my 2-yr old to hold onto vs. this open package which could get crumbs everywhere if you're not careful in how you open it. All-in-all, a great product.
I am always looking for ways to keep waste out of the landfill, so was really thrilled to see resusable sandwich bags advertised on my Facebook wall. I bought two Wrap-N-Mats for my husband and me, and we love the design. You can adjust them to the sandwich size and really wrap them so they stay in place, and the wrap unfolds into a nice mat for your desk. They are attractive, easy to clean, and dry quickly. Highly recommended!
I love it. It gives me a clean and neat area to eat my sandwhich and chips on the go. I don't have trash to carry around and its cool looking!
Just got my Wrap-N-Mat a few days ago but I have used it every day since then and it works fabulously. My sandwiches and bagels have stayed fresh and nothing falls out. The place mat feature is really nice too. I also got a SnackTaxi and a Fresh Snack and really like them too but this is my favorite. I highly recommend them to everyone who is not happy about using so many sandwich bags.
These bags are great! For the past two years I have been using them to pack my son's lunches (which he brings lunch every day). I am on my second set and they are holding up great. I have never had a problem with the velcro coming loose, only normal wear (starting to look old). My daughter will be starting kindergarten next school year and I will definitely be buying more. They are great for snacks and sandwiches. My son loves them!
My husband has started to take his lunch to work and these are perfect for sandwiches. I can make his food the night before and it stays fresh until eaten the next day. I figured out that using these will save 10 plastic bags per week and 500 per year!
Perfect for sandwiches. Love that it folds out into a mat that I can then use to eat on. Wipes or hand washes clean easily. Highly recommend.
I have had a dozen of these for 6 years now- all daily use. Read all the other reviews. I am just adding a couple extra FYI's/cons. They are super easy if you just can let yourself wipe them clean without going into super cleaning mommy mode. If you must get them very wet or soapy, beware of mildew on the fabric as mentioned by another reviewer. They also take days to fully dry. This is easily avoidable if you just wipe the plastic clean and blot/spot clean the fabric. This was initially bothersome for me to just "wipe up" jelly, pb, mayo because I felt like I was not cleaning these greasy wraps well. I wipe them down with a tea tree oil and water solution quickly with a wet paper towel. Simple and cleaning problem resolved! It also blocks mildew in the fabric side. The two that I placed in the washer to remove the mildew did eventually get tears in the plastic, while the others (all handwashed) did not(not bad for 6 years of constant use). The mildew is gone and I use these for dry snacks like crackers and pretzels. Just a few little tips that I have learned over the last 6 years. Still love them.
My husband has been bringing a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to work almost every work day for the last year and a half in our first wrap-n-mat. I'm finally getting him a new one, just because, though this one is still totally functional. He was really skeptical at first, but was completely sold after a week. Sandwich doesn't get dry or stale, and the jelly is contained. We got the recycle print, and I think that in future I might get something darker - jelly on fingers gets transferred to the outside, but the inside wipes very clean. I wipe it out with a vinegar/water solution, and that cleans it nicely.
I am a preschool teacher and I noticed that one of my students had these in his lunch, I thought that was genius! My mom had given me some Rubbermaid containers a few years ago but they are getting pretty worn-out and I refuse to buy any more plastic containers. These are great because they mold to the shape and size of your sandwich so they don't take up any more room than necessary. Plus they turn heads when you pull them out at lunch!
Love my wrap-n-mat. I'm a preschool teacher and I eat my lunch with my students every day -- they all love my neat lunch mat, and I love that I have an instant germ barrier! With the red/white check design, it looks like I'm having a picnic.
I don't love that it has a clear plastic lining, but it does make it easy to clean. It's very practical for work, easy to fill as compared to a sandwich bag, washes well, and the designs are really cute. Surprisingly my young ones could work out how to fold it correctly, which is an added bonus.
Another great wrap-n-mat, although it made me realize how dirty/ worn my older mats have gotten in the past year, relegated to my less-than-pristine backpack :)
Liked it so much, I ordered a second one. Great way to eliminate plastic wrap or bulky containers. Easily cleaned too.
I adore the Wrap-N-Mat. It is flexible for any size sandwich and every time I use it I am using one less disposable product, which is very, very important to me. The environmental design is cute. The Wrap-N-Mat is easy to use and having a built-in placement for my lunch is an extra bonus.
I've had a solid colored one for myself for quite some time. My first grader was very excited to pick out a print for himself this year. He is even thrilled to pack his own lunch because it's so much fun! I also like that he (theoretically) has a clean "placemat" surface to eat on at school. It's very easy to quickly wipe it down with the dish cloth when I'm emptying his lunch bag at home, preparing everything for the next day.
I love the wrap-mats. We have been using them for two years now for school lunches and they are great for sandwiches and other non-messy food stuffs like pizza. Easy to clean and don't show stains hardly at all.
The Wrap-N-Mat was purchased for my 9 yr old daughter. She loves it, especially that it acts like a place mat. Keeps her sandwich fresh and off the lunch table. I would reccomend this product to any mom who sends her kids to school with sandwiches.
Love the Wrap-N-Mat. It's a great feeling knowing that I am helping the environment and my coworkers are noticing. Not to mention the money I am saving in the long run from buying those ziploc bags.
these are great... so nice to know you and your kids dont have to put their food on a yucky table or use their napkin. my girls love them for cold lunch and EVERYONE asks what they are and where they go them. no more plastic baggies...
Awesome, love it!
My husband and I really like the Wrap-n-Mat. It fits even big sandwiches. Every night I just wipe them off and they are ready for the next day. No more plastic baggies! Wish they were made in USA.
I love the way this product works. Perfect for making sandwiches ahead and either carrying with, or leaving in refrigerator for later. Large enough for big sandwiches, as the velcro is adjustable.
A great design, sturdy and durable, I love this! From adult or kid workday lunches to picnics in the park with the kids, I'm hooked.
This product is great. When used for sandwiches parents and kids love how it opens into a placemat. Additionally, it securely holds items - even small ones like pretzels and chips. It is very easy to wipe clean since it opens flat. Love it!
Love it. Keeps the sandwiches fresh. Easy cleanup. Highly recommend. If sandwiches are made with large rolls, get the Wrap-N-Mat Grande.
I LOVE my Wrap-N-Mats!!!! I use two of them for lunch every day. I loved them so much I got two for my boyfriend and he has become a huge fan as well! They make lunch-on-the-go feasible, easy, and clean! Great for travelling also.
Works great. Keeps sandwich secure, and wipes clean in seconds. Very low maintenance, very good product.
This is exactly what I was looking for. I felt guilty using foil every day to wrap 4 sandwiches, now we reuse these every day and it's been great. A quick wipe down and night and we're done. Plus they are great to eat off of since the cafteria tables are not the cleanest.
I love this product. It saves time and money on plastic bags and is great to not be putting more trash in the landfill. My kids love them because they have a placemat to eat on as well. They keep the sandwitch fresh and is so easy to clean, you just wipe it down. The design is cute, everyone asks them about it and where can they get one too!
We really love the wrap-n-mats! There are super cute and make our lunches trash-free. When you unwrap your sandwich and have a placemat for your lunch, it gets a lot of conversations. Wrap-n-mats just make sense and make going back to plastic bags seem totally unneccessary!
We just love our Wrap-N-Mat. I use it to pack my husbands lunch and the mat works as a placemat for him sandwich. Easy way to go green!! I know they seem a little costly but in the long run it's really worth it. It's helped us cut down on plastic bags. Give it a try:)
Love these mats! They are easy to wash and maintain, and they are lightweight and non-bulky - a plus for family who commutes using public transportation and hates to carry anything bulky or large. It makes the "inconvenience" of not being able to throw something out (i.e. plastic sandwich bag) pretty much a non-issue. I've received lots of compliments from other colleagues!
I have had so many people ask me about it at lunch time. I like it a lot. I have brought a few cookies in it and a couple of sandwiches. It did have trouble accommodating a large sandwich, so I would say, it would be helpful in the future to have a longer velcro strap. All in all, it has been a great alternative to baggies!
Love the wrap n mats! I got totally grossed out watching my 6 yr old lay his food on the cafeteria table at lunch, so I thought this solved 2 problems at once. He has a greener way to bring lunch and a clean place to eat it. Even his teacher liked it so much she bought one!
I love the product. It's super easy to use and clean. Makes it a snap to pack my lunch every day!
I love this product! It's easy to wash off and is a perfect place-mat size once it's unfolded. My preschooler can fold and unfold it easily.
I've purchased three of these Wrap-N-Mats now -- all because they've been such a knock out success! I got one for myself hoping to completely stop using plastic sandwich bags for my lunches. My partner was a little skeptical at first (so was I, really), but once she saw how easy the Wrap-N-Mats were and how well they worked, she started dropping hints that she'd like one, too. Plus, I'm finding ways to use them that I wouldn't have imagined before trying them out: hiking, camping, etc. Don't want to use your pants or a rock as a not-so-clean table for your lunch? Unwrap your food and use the Wrap-N-Mat as a personal size tablecloth! In short: great product, no complaints, easy to clean, etc. I totally recommend them.
My husband takes his lunch to work every day and LOVES these! (We got the set of 3) It was annoying not to mention costly to buy plastic sandwich bags. These are awesome! So easy to clean up too!
I love that it cleans so easily! Just wipe it with a wet rag, soapy and wet if it's really needs a cleaning. It will dry in seconds or faster with a quick swipe of the towel. No need to wait for them to go through the laundry or dishwasher!
My husband takes sandwiches to work everyday so I bought this to eliminate the plastic bags he uses. He was hesitant at first but has been using it and really likes it. I like that he isn't using a plastic bag every day and throwing it out!
It is awesome! I'm not sure what kind of sandwiches other customers have made, but I've found it to be the perfect size both for the average-sized bread bought at the store as well as larger slices from my homemade bread. Just perfect! I'd been feeling guilt everytime I threw out the plastic wrap from my daily sandwich and this took care of that. Just a quick wipe takes care of cleaning and the plastic wrap is now sewn all the way around. (Previous reviews state that it wasn't.)
This is a great product! Both my husband and I have been using are Wrap-N-Mats almost on a daily basis since they arrived. Sandwiches fit perfectly and are fresh and ready to eat at lunch time!
I love the Wrap-N-Mat. I no longer have to use plastic wrap everyday for my lunches. This product is green, easy to clean, and definitely worth the investment.
We just love the WrapNMat. It is so much more economical than using plastic baggies. I have been taking my lunch to work more and when I saw these I just had to have them. They make eating lunch fun. And my grandson loves them too. We took one with us when we went out to a restaurant. Felt like it was more sanitary for a 20 month old since they like to have their food on the table.
I love the wrap-sacks that I purchased and my family loves them too. They are easy to clean and keep food fresh.
This is my second Wrap-N-Mat. My dog ripped the first one but i had been using it for my daughter's lunch for about 7 months. This is a great product and i am so glad that i don't have to use plastic bags for sandwiches. I wrap the sandwich in plastic wrap and then in the Wrap-N-Mat. I also wrap in fruit or veg in with the sandwich. This takes up less space in her lunch box than a plastic container and it is easy for her to unwrap and put back in her lunch box when she is finished. It cleans easily with soap and water and does not retain odors. The recent Wrap-N-Mat i purchased had a thicker plastic liner than the first one i had. I will be purchasing a second one in the near future.
We love the Wrap-N-Mat! It is easy to clean and it wraps a sandwich very well, keeping it tightly closed in the lunchbox. Very sturdy and colorful, too!
This is an awesome product! I use these regularly to wrap sandwiches for lunches and both my husband and myself just love them. I've even had co-workers comment on how handy they are to use. Do yourself a favor and buy some now!
Love the Wrap-N-Mat and so does my daughter. Showed it off to my office mates and they are thinking of ordering. Great investment over time to reduce plastic bag consumption!!!
Awesome! It's easy to use, and I love knowing that I'm using less and less plastic wrap. Great product!
My girls love their new wrap-n-mats! The prints are fun for the girls and they are very easy to clean and use for me! I was concerned about their sandwhich staying fresh because its not zipped closed but this is not a problem and I make their lunches the night before! Great product!
I love the Wrap-N-Mat. I wasn't sure if I would like it but it cleans up well, never smells and nothing leaks out. I now don't use a disposable plate or zip-lock to bring and eat my sandwich at work. I will get these for my kids when I start packing their lunches.
this is a huge help. ive already saved from using dozens of plastic sandwich baggies. i use it for sammies and crackers mostly. i wish i had a couple more. i love the checkered design because its very "picnicky".
I love the Wrap-N-Mat! A great way to reduce plastic bags and easy to wash! Think of all the bags we could save if everyone used one!!
I purchased the wrap-n-mats for my family. We have each used them everyday and they have been fabulous. They are easy to clean and make lunches easy to package. My daughters love to have their "picnic" place mat at school and I love that we are not consuming plastic bags so quickly.
Excellent product - I bought 2 and wish I had bought twice as many b/c they are good, not only for sandwiches, but fruit too and just about anything crumbly or messy.
The wrap-n-mat is a great idea!! No mess. Wipes clean and no waste.
My children and I love using our Wrap-N-Mats. They work great in their lunch bags and keep their sandwiches in great shape. I wound recommend them to others.
What a great product! Love it and so did the recipients!
These are terrific. I have used the three I have for over a year and they are still going strong! I have also purchased them as gifts for family and they couldn't be happier.
I got this wrap in ecoprint and I just love it. I use it to wrap sandwiches, burritos, anything and it has a plastic-like lining that is easy to wipe and just let air dry. Someone had a great idea to seal the air from baking dough and I haven't tried that but will. Everyone at work loves this when I whip out my lunch!
The wrap-n-mat is great! I am a teacher so I like to pack my lunch a lot (and avoid the cafeteria). Wrap-n-mat is good for everyday use and always sparks conversation in the lunchroom. My favorite part is that I make the sandwich on the mat in the morning, and then there's no pb or jelly cleanup on the counter!
My nine-year-old loves this for her lunch - it wraps her sandwich and gives her a placemat for all of her other goodies. It is easy to clean and takes up hardly any storage space. Highly recommended.
I love my Wrap-N-Mat! It's fun to use, simple to keep clean, keeps stuff fresh all day (or longer), is easier to get stuff in and out than bags, and alleviates my guilt about throwing away plastic bags. Plus, it comes in cute colors, costs very little and it's environmentally friendly. That's cool.
I am loving the wrap n mat for my preschooler and 1st grader. They have yet to complain so I am guessing they dig it also. I am always on the look out for ways to pack their lunches with out any throw away plastic baggies or wrap. I can lay down a slice of chedder and then top it with their pb&j so I get to pack two items in the wrap. A keeper!
This is a great product - saves so much plastic wrap or aluminum foil. I wish I'd seen it earlier. I just wish it came in a larger version too as sometimes we have super sandwiches that need wrapping too!
Great product, easy to clean. And the kids love using them.
I love these sandwich wrappers. The kids use them every day in their lunchboxes which has allowed me to go totally plastic bag free. They wipe clean in between washings in the washer. I just bought more so that we can use them in the car on long trips.
Aside from the take-a-sandwich-to-work use, these are great for keeping in a purse for taking home leftovers from restaurants, too--and saving the styrofoam or plastic to-go containers.
Surprisingly, my son enjoys the mat the most as his pre-school teachers have all commented on it. Only drawback -I need a better way to put our name on it as a sharpie on the fabric runs!
I love this wrap-mat! I never have to use plastic bags for my daughter's lunch anymore! I just wash when I wash the nightly dishes.
I not only use my Wrap-N-Mat for sandwiches, I also use it to cover bread dough when it is rising (would've used plastic wrap in the past).
Nice and easy to use and great pattern! Our son loves to eat sandwiches from it.
This is a great product! I'm very happy with the quality of the wrap-n-mat, and it's even easier to use to transport sandwiches than the plastic container I have been using.
I first bought this item for my daughter when she started Kindergarten and it's held up really well. She's even gotten complements from the school staff. I really recommend this item for both kids and adults.
I was a little hesitant about buying this at first, but now I wish I would have bought more. It is easy to use and clean, and is perfect for any type of sandwich anywhere you go.
This doubles as a "baggie" for a sandwich and a placemat when you get ready to eat your meal. I just throw it in the washer with the clothes when I want to get it really clean, or just wrinse it in the sink if it's not too dirty. I think I'll order a few more.
We really love our Wrap N Mats! My boys feel they are doing their part for the environment, and loved that they got to select their own fabric. It's nice not to go through so many plastic bags only to have them end up in a landfill. We use them every day they take lunch from home. The construction would be beefed up a bit with reinforcing the stitching near the tab, which I believe is being addressed.
It was a gift for my nephew and he loves it. I would recommend, very practical.
Such a clever idea! I take it to work with me whenever I make sandwiches, and if I had kids, I know it would be in their reusable lunch bags every day.
This product is so easy to use and makes for such a charming mat to each lunch upon. They're also space savers in an already crowded bag/backpack. My boyfriend and I love them!
I like this wrapnmat- it keeps the air out well enough that the bread does not dry, and it provides a place to eat the sandwich. It doesn't prevent it from being squished so that is a thought depending on where you put it, but even in a container I still like it because it keeps me from wasting plastic wrap every time, plus you can wrap up apple cores and orange peels to dispose of later in it which is helpful here in the land of few public trash cans (Japan). I will add for those you use non standard bread (in Japan for example some sliced bread is really, really thick) the size does not work, it only works with standard American sized sliced bread.
Such an easy solution for wrapping a sandwich. I bought 'em for my kids, but have been using them for my own lunch even more often!
Wonderful product. My husband was very skeptical but just using it once sold him. It keeps the sandwich fresher than plastic bags. I would recommend it to everyone. I have bought more for holiday gifts.
A wonderful addition to my son's lunch box. Easy to use, clean and store.
my daughter used this every day last year and every day for camp, I love it. It is easy to clean, although there where days I cut the sandwich on it and that was a mistake because it left marks on the clear plastic, but thankfully not slits.
Terrific. It works great as a sandwich wrapper and a placemat.
Love these sandwich wrappers. Easy to use and clean.
I LOVE this product, I feel much better not using plastic bags for my daughters sandwiches. I plan to buy more in the near future.
What a great idea! These wraps work perfect for sandwiches. My daughter and her classmates thought it was "cool"! They are easy to clean and make "going green" fun!
What a great idea. I used to wash the plastic wrap after using, but it wouldn't really last after 2 or 3 uses. I've been using this product for over 2 months (for work lunches everyday), and it's still holding up very well. Saves money, saves the environment.
This is a brilliant alternative to disposable sandwich bags. It's easy to use and wash, and makes a clean place on which to eat lunch. My daughter loves it. It's like a little present to unwrap! I use it for other things like rice cakes, a piece of pumpkin bread, bagels etc. Highly recommended!
Love the Wrap-It Mats! Very convenient, keeps things fresh. We use them for school lunches and work lunches. All our lunch buddies are asking about them.
My second wrap n' mat- I LOVE them! Works well, stands up to the daily abuse of life in my backpack, and is super easy to clean at the end of the day. I look forward to unwrapping my lunch everyday and am so glad there is a viable option to the multitude of plastic baggies I would be using were it not for the wrap n' mats. :)
I really like it. I definently saves on use of plastic bags. I have also gotten alot of compliments. It is ironic that that there is plastic involved in the product as well. Also, they are a little overpriced. I only ordered one, and once I received it, I figure I could make my own for now on.
These are go great! My husband and toddler both take them to school/work and the sandwich or bagel stays fresh until it's time to eat! Easy to clean and so easy to use--Bye Bye yucky plastic bags! We don't need you anymore :)
I absolutely love the Wrap-N-Mats! I use them for my kindergartner's lunch sandwiches, cut up fruit, chips, you name it. Easy clean up and easy storage. I feel so much better not to be contributing plastic baggies to landfills anymore. I highly recommend them to anyone! The only suggestion I would make is that the maker of the mats would put a name label area on the outside of the wrap, somewhere that you could write the child's name with a permanent marker. Other than that, they are fabulous!!
A wonderful product! I actually need to buy another one.
I love them - they are easy to use and easy to clean. The ease means that I will use them daily for the kid's lunches, and I have!
Love the wrap-n-mats and my kids love them too! I wish there was something soft like that that would be small for lunch snacks that's reusable!
Very pleased with the wrap-n-mats we purchased. Our kids love them for school lunches.
I really like this product! I have stopped buying plastic sandwich bags because of it, now I just need another one for my husband's lunches!
The Wrap-N-Mat is a great alternative to plastic sandwich bags, which just end up in the landfills. The mat is made very well and keeps the sandwich quite fresh. The clean up is easy. Also - it's lead free. We will order a few more for the rest of our family.
Just used it today in my lunch box. So much nicer than wasting lots of plastic wrap or baggies and not as bulky as using plastic containers. Wish I had bought more!
We love our wrap-n-mat's! I worried that our daughter would be "different" from the other kids at school, but she came home the first day saying that her friends thought it was cool. So far they work great and we have not had a problem at all. Nice product that we highly recommend. The Dail Family
We love these wraps! Even my older kids like them as they are becoming more aware of the wastefulness of the "one time use" disposable baggies. In fact I bought more to use for their snacks. They like not putting their food on the less-than sanitary school lunch tables. And the wraps are easy to wash. Susanne- California
What a wonderful idea this was! I really like having this product to reuse. I like the mat idea in general. Several co-workers have asked me where I got it, and of course I told them reuseablebags.com!!
We bought several Wrap N Maps years ago and love them. They are easy to clean and make a nice clean placemat for children to eat on dirty surfaces (picnic tables, school lunch tables, etc. YUCK) We have had several inquiries from people. The only regret I have is the limited selection of patterns on reusablebags.com In the past we ordered several very cool patterns through snail mail directly from the manufacturer.
This product is great! Not only does it cut down on the use of disposable plastic bags, it also makes a nice placemat for when you are eating at your desk or on the go. My husband and I both have one and use them all the time!
I haven't gotten a chance to use the Wrap-N-Mat much yet, but the quality and appearance is good. It seems to be pretty durable and easy to clean. I love that there is an alternative to sandwich baggies. I used a plastic container before, but they can be bulky at times and hard to fit into lunch bags. I would definitely recommend this product. For $6.95, it's worth giving a try.
I love the Wrap-n Mat. I typically buy the larger loaves of bread and their is no problem with the fit. I initially thougtht that the bread would dry out but that is not the case. I make my lunch in the morning and 6 hours later the bread is still fresh. I also like the fact that I can eat at my desk at work and the Wrap-n-Mat doubles as a placemat and cleans up nicely when I am done. This is a must have for anyone that "brown bags" their daily lunch.
The wrap n mat is great...I've used it now for over a month and it's sound handy especially at my desk when it serves as a placemat too. It comes out just fine in the wash.
Great idea, works well and keeps my sandwhich fresh. I am telling all my friends about this cool way to keep sandwhich's!
I really like the wrap-in-mat. It is flexable and less bulky than a sandwich in a container. It makes it so I can fit more in my lunch box or fit strangly shaped items in there more easily. I bring breakfast and lunch to work, so the more room in my lunch box the better.
i love the wrap n mats. they keep sandwiches clean and neat and serve as a plate for eating. easily wipe clean and store flat. they are great.
This is best for sandwiches, but works well for crackers, etc. It's definitely nice to save a bag. I do think these would be easy to make, if you're so inclined.
I had never heard of this product before stumbling onto this website and I LOVE IT. I feel so much better not using a zillion plastic bags a week just so I can save some money by bringing my lunch. It is extremely functional, great size, great design. I am delighted with the design I chose (the 'eco' one) and am very proud to take it with me everyday to class. Even with 'gooey' sandwiches like PB&J, it is all contained within the wrap n' mat and is easy to wipe off at the end of the day for use the next day. The sandwich is not squished by the wrap, just contained! This is such an easy thing to do to reduce your effect on the environment at a great price.
I'm enjoying it a lot -- it's easy to clean, dries quickly and makes my bag lunch look like a mini-picnic. The sandwich holds together well if you fold it tightly.
I love this, for sandwiches or for bread as a side to your meal. The red & white is very cute. I love not having a bulky plastic container, or plastic bag to wash and dry to reuse each time; I just wipe off the wrap-n-mat.
My husband uses these in his lunch and loves them. They are a great surface for not only eating the sandwiches, but making them as well. And they are also perfect for wrapping fruit. I thought the wrap-n-mat might be a hassle to wash, but I just use a little dish soap to hand wash them, and then let them hang from my range hood to drip dry. We started with one, and now we have four. Great product!
great idea and easy to use, it washes well and has held lots of sandwiches so far
I've used this product for 2 weeks now. I send my 4-year old's sandwiches in it to preschool. It's very easy to clean. I've even tossed it in the laundry and air dried it. I'm very impressed with how durable it is, and am please by how many plastic sandwich bags I haven't used just in 2 weeks time.
This mat is great!! I have had so many people ask me where I got this. Would recommend it to everyone. It is easy to clean and great for every member of the family - my 5 year old son loves it!
Wrap N Mat is a wonderful product. I now have four of them and use them for all of my son's and my own meals on the go. I do wish that there was one to use for warm food. The plastic coating is not good for anything warm. But overall they are great and I feel good about not throwing out ANOTHER plastic baggie.
This product is fabulous! My sandwiches stay fresh and all my friends have been asking about it and where they can get one.
The wrap-n-mat has been great! Since it folds down to fit the thing being wrapped, it can save a lot of room, and is more lightweight, than using a tupperware-type sandwich holder. And of course it's 100x more ecofriendly than using throw away sandwich bags!
Great idea, will see how the velcro holds up over time. Very easy to clean and use.
I love the wrap-n-mat. I bought one for my husband for Christmas and he uses it to take his lunch to work everyday now. The sandwich stays fresh in the fridge, it's easy to wash off each evening, and we haven't bought plastic sandwich bags in 6 months! What a savings!
Awsome. Keeps everything fresh and delicious. Easy to use.
It is a very cute and nifty item. When opened I can fit my sandwich and side item on it. It is also very easy to clean. I left a sandwich in it for 2 days and it was hard. Other than that I love it.
I love the Wrap-N-Mat. It accommodates many sizes of sandwiches. The bread stays fresh and I can use it over and over again after simply wiping down the inside.
The wrap n mat works great. I use it to carry my weekend lunch to the barn. It gets dirty quick and washes up nice. I do wish the velcro piece was about an inch longer. My bread seems to be large and the velcro just reaches. Another inch longer would make me feel more secure, but that being said, the wrap has never popped open. Great product!
The Wrap-N-Mat is wonderful, wonderful! We've used these for wrapping lunch sandwichs nearly every day since they arrived, and I've sent at least a dozen co-workers back to their offices with your website URL scribbled on a napkin. IT's so nice to give up those plastic bags!
WoW! We really love our reusable Wrap-N-Mats, they work great! Although, one of them was damaged in the making. It arrived with the plastic liner stuck together, and when we tried to pry it apart, the plastic rippled. Hopefully we will be able to get a replacement because they've been a real budget saver and fun to use! We voted that the ECO print cover is the best one!
I love the wrap-n-mat - perfect size for sandwiches. Now how about one for cookies and or chips!!!
My girls love the Wrap-N-Mat! The plastic containers they used to use made their sandwiches soggy and The Wrap-N-Mat keeps their sandwiches fresh. They also love that they are saving the Earth from all of those nasty plastic bags. We've gotten many requests from their friends' parents and their teachers for info on the mats. We've happily shared with all.
Love this! I wish I bought more then 1. I use it all the time, its perfect for sandwiches, fruit, anything!
I love these!!! Wash gently though as I had one come apart at the seam. The others I own have been fine though and it's so nice to have a soft, reusable container for sandwiches! So much better and longer lasting than washing Ziplocs. I haven't used them with other foods but so long as it's a somewhat dry good they probably work well for wrapping them up.
My 6 year-old loves these and is proud he is doing something good for our planet!
Love it. Have had positive comments from folks every time I use it. Bread does not dry out. It works great as a "placemat."
The use of the Wrap-n-mat is ideal, no more wasting plastic ziplock bags. The contruction seems sturdy (so far, we just started using them) and does hold up in the washing machine. I think the value is well worth the money and am recommending this item to my friends.
I love this product!!! It is so convenient and easy to clean. The cost was reasonable and when needed, I will definitely order more. Thanks.
Great product. Easy to use and claen. We use it every day and it really holds up.
I bought this for my dad- who takes a sandwich to work everyday, so he could give up using those plastic sandwich bags. I could tell he was a little hesitant to use it (like most men, he doesn't like change!)- but he loves it now! It keeps the sandwich fresh and all you have to do is wipe it clean! Great idea!!! :)
I LOVE the Wrap-n-mats... I'd like some more options for patterns on your website, b/c as soon as I found out that Wrap=n-mats has their own website with a ton more patterns, I ordered like 15 more from them. Also, if I make a BIG sandwich, its a little harder to close and I end up squishing it a lot... so, i guess it would be cool to have an option of ordering a LARGE or SMALL one? Thanks!
Perfect alternative to the disposable sandwich bag. The Wrap-N-Mat is easy to clean. I only need to wipe it off or rinse it and hang it to dry in the worst case scenario. I will definitely purchase more in the future, when our packed lunches become more frequent.
i bought the wrap-n-mat for my sister because she takes sandwiches for lunch. i have been complaining to my mom that we need to find an alternative for foil,so she challenged me to find something. i found the perfect thing...wrap-n-mat. my sister loves it and we love it too.everyone of her friends wants to know where we bought it. we also had to buy one for ourselves. thank you again for having great products that help families and help me so something good for the environment.
I love my wrap-n-mat. I have used a tupperware sandwich container in the past, since I avoid using plastic bags as much as possible. However, this wrap takes less space then a plastic container, it is easy to clean, and it is lighter too. I will be purchasing a second one for my son.
I love this product. Sandwich containers do not fit in my children's lunchboxs so I had been wrapping them in wax paper to avoid plastic bags. This is so much better- no garbage at all and it fits in the lunchbox. The sandwich stays fresh and they have a neat placemat. Love it.
Our family has at least 5 of these mats, and have given our kid's birthday "goodie bag" items inside them too! All green recyclable items of course. They are washable (no dryer though) and great for travel or lunches. Every time we use them, I think, "the Earth is getting a breather."
These are great! I use it every day and bought one for my brother as well. At first, he was skeptical, but now he too loves it. It feels great not to reach for bag that I know I will discard in a couple of hours.
I absolutely love it. I bought one for myself and my boyfriend and we use them everyday to take our lunch to work. It definitely limits the use of "baggies". Great product!
I have two of these and use them frequently to bring my lunch. The solid blue one is a thinner material, so it takes up less space, but still seems well-made and had stood up fine to my use. (Being an adult, I'm not too rough on these and often just have to quickly wipe off the inside after use.) I also like that they take up less space after whatever has been eaten than a plastic container would.
Kept my sandwich fresh and was always the right size no matter what kind of bread I used. Like that it opens up into a "placemat". It keeps my desk clean when eating and working! Haven't put it in the wash yet - because it wipes clean.
Absolutely fantastic. Keeps sandwich components together, and sandwich does not dry out. Also good for transporting snack foods like crackers. I'm really looking forward to kicking the sandwich bag habit.
I bought the Wrap-N-Mat for my roommate and she loves it! It saves us plastic baggies and is so easy to clean (much easier to clean than the plastic bowl/lid that were using to save bags when we could). The package was shipped so quickly as well! Thank you!
My daughter has used her wrap-n-mat for the past two school years and it is still in great condition. The liner wipes clean easily and the outer cover is quite durable. Also, the wrap-n-mat serves as a perfect lap cover when she happens to be eating in the car.
This is a really cool product--exactly what I needed to replace sandwich bags/aluminum foil. I just got it and have already used it a few times. The gingham pattern is cute, too. :)
Very easy to use and clean. Matches up well with my new lunch bag.My wife is now asking if people at work are noticeing(they are).
I purchased the Wrap-N-Mat for my son's lunches. It is such a clever idea - I hate using those throw away plastic lunch baggies! I only purchased one, but I realize I need more for various food items I'd like to pack with his lunch. It provides you with a clean surface for eating too!
This product is a great idea for school lunches. My sone feels cool with his new and different sandwich "container". The actual purpose for the purchase stemmed from my daughter's use. She has a medical condition similar to a spinal cord injury and has a tough time opening things due to limited finger use...she has enjoyed using this. The velcro is a little strong right now as it is new but that will soften and make it even easier for her. If you have not already done so, your product would also be useful in the disabled community for multiple limited functioning users. Thanks
Works really well for elementary students! we are trying to go green at our school. . .
Great product!! I can't believe how much celophane wrap I wasted over the years. Folds easily over rolls too!
I love the wrap-n-mat, and more importantly, my 8-yr. old son does too! All the kids at his lunch table told him it was cool when he opened it up to reveal his sandwich, and then proceed to lay out the rest of his food! He loves using it as a placemat. I love that his food stays germ-free and that we're helping the environment!
The sandwich wraps are terrific. They are very easy to use and clean up in a snap.I use mine for sandwiches as well as for crackers or flat breads.I have also used them to hold a damp wash cloth for wiping faces.
I ordered the wrap-n-mat because my girlfriend had one... I immediately went home and looked it up online because the website was right there on the bag! I have a preschooler and a husband that I make lunches for and these wraps are awesome!! it's super easy to wrap up and un wrap whereas a bag you have to stick your hand in the bag and get all icky (pb. and j's) i like that i don't have to reuse bags and they are really easy to clean.. just wipe 'em off with a damp cloth! 100% satisfied. I'm sure i'll be ordering more in the future... my youngest will be going to preschool soon!
I have used the wrap-n-map for two years in my son's lunch box--it is a very nifty product. I bought more because now my husband wraps his sandwich in one, too. Bonnie
The wrap-n-mat keeps my sandwich fresh and intact, ready to eat! Easy clean-up of the mat makes it quickly ready to go for the next day.
I just recently bought the wrap n mat and I love it. I tried to get my 14 year old to use it but she wouldn't. I did however buy her the reusable lunch sack and she loves that. It is larger than paper lunch bags and much easier to carry. I use my wrap n mat when I go to work and the best part is that it becomes your place mat. No more crumbs on my desk!! I will definitly buy more items in the future.
Great product, is holding up to daily use for my daughter's school snack. Will purchase more.
I am completely in love with this thing! I've made sandwiches, packed pita chips, crackers, pretzels, broccoli and all sorts of things to take to work with me. The presentation is completely awesome. My coworkers ask constantly what on earth do I have and where can they get it. It's really lovely too because I'm horrible about leaving tupperware everywhere it shouldn't be left, but this thing, as soon as I'm finished with my yummy lunch I can fold it up nicely and stick in my coat pocket to be discovered at home. Washes easily too. Haven't had anything leak from it, and I make really messy food (mostly hummus and feta and all sorts of veggies on my sandwiches, but they stay fresh and contained!) I'm all about this product and when I get paid next I'm going to order another few. I currently have 2, one for me and one for my boyfriend, and he has taken a liking to it as well. _3
Love, LOVE this little reusable item. We are planning to buy a few more after testing out this one!
I bought this for my 6-year old's lunchbox. It is great the way it folds out to be a placemat and is large enough for him to put all the items in his lunch on it. Much much easier than him opening a plastic bag and best of all, no plastic waste. Highly recommend, in fact, I'm buying another one! Julie A., Washington
The Wrap-N-Mat has served as a wonderful replacement for the plastic bags I used to use to wrap up lunch items. Every time I use it I feel good about my choice to stop using plastic bags! The only thing I've struggled with so far is what the best way of cleaning it is.
I LOVE this Wrap-N-Mat! I use it nearly every day for sandwiches & wraps. With wraps you need a rubber band to keep it closed. It's easy to clean, too.
About the made in China, if you go to wrap-n-mat website, which is owned by the mom creators of the product, you can order made in the USA wraps. The problem is: all the USA versions are made with toxic PVC! This site only carries the Chinese made versions because that are made with a less toxic vinyl. The original site also has many other paterns of cloth, but they aren't exactly "chic" if you know what I mean. I'm buying the China redchecks.
This is perfect for sandwiches or wrapping up any item that you would normally wrap in aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Easy to clean.
This item was a little different than I though it would be. I was expecting a piece of oil cloth and this is a piece of fabric sewn to a piece of clear plastic. I have used it a number of times now and I have found it perfectly functional, easy to clean and a real attention getter. I would recommend it-use it and stick with it!
I love this product!!! I am going to order more for my whole family. Best for bread sandwiches but wraps can still fit if you make them more square.
These are great for wrapping sandwiches and other snacks up in. I love that the inside lining is easy to clean. These wraps will significantly decrease our use of plastic ziploc bags for lunches. They fit all bread sizes, which is great. My husband was really excited when we got them.
I love the Wrap-N-Mat! Consider me a for life convert! No more plastic baggies will be purchased in my house. They are easy to use, attractive, and I love how when you unwrap your sandwich, you have a nice clean placemat to eat on.
This is kinda neat! I use this to take my sandwiches to lunch and when a bring it out people start asking questions. It works great, keeps the sandwich fresh and I don't have to throw it away, just take it home, wipe it off and use it the next day. Quick and easy.
I got one of these for myself last summer and liked it so much that I just got another one for my mom. She loves it too, and said she was surprised by how well it works to wrap up other food as well as sandwiches. I like that it gives me a clean place to set my food while I'm eating and keeps me from getting crumbs all over when I eat at my desk. It's very sturdy and easy to clean. Great product! Buy several.
The Wrap-N-Map is a great alternative to plastic bags. It also provides a nice surface on which to lay your sandwich while at work or picnicing.
I bought this mat to wrap my husband's sandwiches in his lunch bag. It's so easy to use and he loves that it doubles as a placemat. Great buy!
Very happy to get my WrapNMats back from the kids each day. Another solid blow in the battle against "stuff"!
Great alternative to plastic sandwich bags. Guilt-be-gone!
These are great my son uses them every day in his lunch box. Makes me feel better re: fewer one-use plastic baggies plus has been a way for me to teach him (and then for him to teach his classmates and teachers) about conservation.
My husband and I absolutely love these wraps!! We are planning to by some more for ourselves and for friends and family. I love not having to use plastic bags. We not only use them for our lunches but also for at home storage (i.e. wrapping cheese in the fridge). I only wish they made some in larger sizes then we would be able to completely eliminate our plastic storage bags.
I have been using the wrap-n-mat to take a sandwich to work for the past two weeks. I like it a lot. It's easy to wipe clean and provides a nice surface for food down between bites.
This is a great product. But if you make your sandwich on the Wrap-N-Mat, do not cut it on the mat. Other than that, it is very easy to use and clean up!
These wraps work extremely well, lunch is packed faster than ever around here! Very easy to clean! Love them!
The Wrap-N-Mats are just perfect! They are wonderful for sandwiches, but also hold loose items like nuts, granola, grapes, etc. The kids love folding them up and have received many compliments about them at school. Another benefit is knowing that our 2 year old niece, who has a severe nut allergy, always has a safe, clean placemat from which to eat her meals when she is away from home! The eco-print is not only a great message, but also a safer liner and ink. Way to go!
FUN and FUNKY, this wrap is smartly designed and perfect as intended. Great for "just right" sized lunchables. May need multiple wraps for heartier appetites.
These are a great item. We live in Germany, and the Germans do not use disposable items, like plastic bags, like we Americans do. I have felt bad for using so many plastic bags in my daughter's lunches. Now I feel like I am doing more of my part, and she likes that it is also a mat she can eat on.
I love mine- I was worried that it might not work because I bake my own bread so the size is different but it works just fine- the "placemat" aspect is also super helpful!
I like the wrap and mats and my kids 3 and 6 do too. It feels good not to be using so many plastic baggies.
I love this product! I only ordered one and wish I had gone for the 3-pack. Every day I use one less plastic baggie and it feels fantastic. It works fine with oversized bread, just wish it was easier to use for a wrap! I'd like a few more for my veggies and crackers.
I got these for my grade school kids' lunch boxes, they are a big hit! My 2nd grader proudly pointed out to me this morning that he had nothing to throw away when they came around for "extras" after lunch. They rinse off easily, I don't have to spend $3 on a box of wax paper lunch bags anymore and they have a little placemat for lunch, very civilized (protect us from the cafeteria germ pool...)
I love this product. We use is almost every day for my daughters lunch. It is easy to clean. I just spray it and wipe it off and it's ready to go. I love the fact that my daughter's food isn't on the lunchroom table. The only dissappointment was that it wasn't made in the USA. We bought one last year that was.
I LOVE this sandwich wrapper. It keeps the bread so fresh and doesn't waste all those baggies. Easy to clean, and seems very sturdy.
Excellent product! These are cute, and fit in small lunch boxes better than the plastic containers.
The wrap-n-maps are great for the environment, saves me money, eliminates the use of harsh plastic baggies,and they are fun for my kids.
Love it! A great way to save money on sandwich bags.
I just got my wrap-n-mat a few days ago and I LOVE it! It keeps my bread nice and soft. I learned about the product from a co-worker who had one, and he was very satisfied with it. Thank you for having such a great site with so many earth-friendly products!
I love my new Wrap-N-Mat, and I use it every day. It truly does keep bread fresh, even for a couple of days! I haven't used it for anything truly messy yet, but the way it folds around foods makes me think that it would keep sandwich fillings from leaking. I am planning to buy more for myself and for gifts. Wrap-N-Mat has saved me from using many plastic sandwich bags, and I love it! Also, the customer service for your company is excellent!
Love the wrap-n-mat. My son uses it every week for his pre-school lunch.
A perfect alternative to sandwich bags. It keeps my sandwich fresh and is so easy to wash.
These are great! Very cute, clean up pretty well. Much better than using flimsy sticky saran wrap.
We bought the 3 pack of these as well as a single so that we would have enough to go around. I love them!!! I would love to have them in different sizes, they are too big to wrap smaller items (like one little oreo....) Maybe different shapes would be useful as well. If they make them....I WILL buy them!!!
I love my Wrap-N-Mats! I use them every day -- they get so much use, I'm wondering how long they'll last! 2 suggestions: a much wider variety of patterns. There were only a few patterns available when I bought, and I wanted the cheapest ones. So I have 4 of the same -- would be nice to vary them so I didn't have to open everything to figure out what's in them. Also, when it becomes possible it would be great if the plastic part could be made out of corn -- even that little bit of plastic makes me feel guilty. I also bought some produce bags, which I love.
I LOVE the Wrap-n-Mat! I found the link on IdealBite.com and I ordered 4 so everyone in the family could cut back on the plastic in lunches. Now I want the SIGG bottles since I keep hearing how all of the plastic water bottles are choking our garbage dumps! Jen W.
This is the second one I bought. I love them for sandwiches, carrots, bread, anything that doesn't have liquid. I even pack a pear in it to keep it from getting bruised.
Our family loves this product! It made me sad to put a plastic sandwich bag into my kids lunches everyday and then have the bags thrown away. What manufacturers call "disposable" will stay in our landfills for years. The Wrap-N-Mat is easy to fold and easily wipes clean. We use them everyday.
Love the wrap-n-mats. I wish more people used them. I get grossed-out seeing all the over-packaged (and over-processed) food that the other kids in my son's school eat. There is no recycling program in this region for plastic, so at least I can do my part by not wrapping food in baggies or plastic wrap.
I like this product but would definitely change a few things about it: the velcro strip needs to be longer to accommodate foods that are not always sandwich shaped, the back of the mat is cloth and should probably be made out of the same plastic as the inside for easier cleaning and less food staining. Otherwise, we are really enjoying this product and we have cut down on our plastic wrap usage.
It's great , you don't just have a nice and secure wrap for your sandwich but also a clean surface to put it.
this is very convenient for taking all kinds of snacks!
We love the Wrap-N-Mat. It's the perfect cover for desktop eating at school, it's easy to clean and easy on the environment. What's not to love?
Really like the wrap-n-mat so far, though wish it were a bit more rectangle shaped to accommodate an adult's sub-type sandwich. Great for kid lunches though.
I love the Wrap-n-Mat. It keeps the sandwich fresh, you don't have to worry about washing/throwing out a baggie, and it's pretty easy to clean. Everyone who sees it is impressed by the idea, and maybe when others see it they will be encouraged to conserve as well!
I love this thing! I just got it on Saturday, and am using it for the first time today but so far I am nothing but pleased with the wrap itself. I guess my only criticism would be the fact that the mat comes in a plastic bag, but even then it's just the one plastic bag vs. the hundreds you save with this little marvel.
Great product. I use them every day for my two son's lunches. Probably cannot have enough of them.
Great, useful product! Saves money, alot over time, especially if you take your lunch to work or school every day. Very colorful, easy to clean, easy to use, and most importantly, each person who stops using throw-away plastic wrappers or foil for their sandwiches which clogs our landfills by the tons each day, is helping. These make great gifts, too. Use them for stocking stuffers!
I gave one as a gift and we both think they are very helpful and they provide a "plate" as well as a wrap.
The wrap-n-mat has been great and I use it to carry bread to work with me. I eat most of my meals at work and a lot of toast with avocado. It goes well in the freezer too to keep my bread from getting moldy. I used to use zip lock bags and would try to at least get several uses out of them. This has saved me the trouble, thanks!
Love the mats-they are well made and easy to use and keep clean. My kids like having something clean to eat their food off of at school and they are big!
These are great! My kids love the fun eco design and I love not using plastic bags! Would love to see something like this for the rest of our meal... fruit, veggies, chips, etc.
We love our wrap-n-mats. My husband makes beautiful sandwiches for our lunches and the presentation is the office envy.
I love my Wrap-N-Mat! I no longer feel guilty about using plastic bags or plastic wrap, and it keeps my sandwich neat. I need to figure out how to wash it, but my coworker (who also purchased one), said she washed it and it came out perfectly. I'm definitely a happy customer!
Addition to my review: My only complaint is that the Wrap-N-Mat is a bit too big for my sandwiches and most of the time, the velcro doesn't quite line up. But it hasn't been a huge problem yet.
We purchased the "wrap and mats" and we love them. Our chlidren bring them to school with their sandwich's wrapped in them and they think they're so hip and fun. Plus - we don't have to feel so guilty for using all of the ziploc bags anymore. Thank you!
This is a wonderful product with low maintenance, great for people on the go!
I love the mats and my son said that friends at school think they are 'cool' (he's in 3rd grade) - I have been recommending them to friends.......
Neat and easy to use--my daughters love them. I hope the price will go down, though I think it is still definitely worth having them to save the plastic.
Wonderful, Great idea. keeps my bread fresh until lunchtime.
Love the wrap-n-mat! Bought two for my kids to use in their lunch boxes, very happy that I did. They easily accommodate a large sandwich or a small half. Keeps them fresh too. Love the print. Simple to wipe clean when they come home. Well made, easy to use. Really love not using plastic bags anymore. Highly recommend this product!
I absolutely love this product. We have gotten one for every member of the family. Not only does this product help reduce waste but it provides a sanitary eating space as well. Our children attend one of the only green schools in the state and I am going to reccomend these as a fundraiser at our next PTO meeting. Great quality, fantastic product!
I love the Wrap-N-Mat's! For someone who used WAY too many plastic baggies, you feel great using this product! It fits a full sized sandwich perfectly. If making only a half sandwich, I end up using a rubber band to keep it closed (the velcro isn't that long).
I love my wrap and mats! They make me smile every time I use them. The RECYLE pattern is especially cute and you will feel good about not using another plastic bag.
My daughter uses the wrap-n-mat everyday--she is attending an international school in Paris and recycling is extremely important--she carries her organic cotton lunch bag and uses her wrap-n-mat. I am so glad we found you!!!These are things that I have wanted to use and could not find. Thanks!
I bought the wrap-n-mats for my boys' lunches. I can pack nearly anything in them, they don't throw them away (like they used to with plastic bags) and they clean very easily. Really great and easy to use. I plan on buying more.
I purchased the wrap-n-mat and gourmet getaway lunch bag for my 3yr. old. He uses it for school and we love them both. Each are easy to clean (we've already thrown the lunch bag in the washer) and he's proud to carry his lunch to school in the morning. You've got me hooked as a customer!
The Wrap-N-Mat is wonderful! My husband and I are fighting over it already! It's very easy to use, keeps our sandwiches fresh, and is a snap to clean. Of course, the best part is that it keeps us from using little plastic baggies!
Love it, love it, love it. I use my wraps all the time. No problem with leaking or having my sandwich fall apart. And I like having a large clean surface to use as a placemat. Best of all, I don't have anything to throw away when I'm through eating. That makes me feel great! Nifty idea.
I love this product! It works very well, keeping sandwich contents fresh. To avoid plastic bags, I had been using containers, but they were never a good fit and my sandwich was often a misshapen mess. It's such a pleasure to have one less container to bring back and forth to work and keeping so many plastic bags out of landfills has never been so easy. I'm planning on purchasing Wrap-n-Mat for holiday gifts for friends and co-workers. Thanks!
This product has worked well to send a snack to school with my first grade son. It works for fruit, cookies, crackers, or pretty much anything I've tried. It is easy to clean and the red check is a nice print.
This is perfect for anyone that takes a sandwich regularly for lunch! Easy to clean, and a great gift idea too.
The Wrap-N-Mat ROCKS! Totally saves on having to use plastic bags, serves as a place mat, and cleans easy. Cant have enough of em in the house.
This honestly keeps my sandwich fresher than a sandwich bag ever did!
I love this product. I carry everything from sandwiches, to pizza, to toast in it. I can pack it fully loaded in my purse and it never leaves crumbs or mess. I was a little worried, at first, that the Velco like closure would grab and hold crumbs, but this hasn't been a problem so far. Cleans up easy.
This product is great! It makes wrapping my family's sandwiches a snap, and I feel good about not having to use aluminum foil or plastic wrap. I love the eco-print, too - very cute!
The Wrap-N-Mat is great. I bought two. I wrap my sandwhich in one and fold up some crackers in the other. I throw both of those in my recyled cotton lunch bag and I'm good to go. Lots of people at work want to know where I got them, for both them and their kids.
I love this!!! I think it's the cutes thing!!! I use it all the time. I wish more people would use this instead of plastic bags.
My whole family loves these! They are the best alternative to plastic sandwich bags.
I love this product-what a great idea! Anything to spare the use of more plastic. Thanks guys.
I love it and use it daily to take my lunch to work. We eat at our desk or at a picnic table so it also is great how it doubles as a placemat! My husband will not use it though as feels this product is something that would have him the laughing hit of the lunch room.
I love the wrap-n-mat. I have several and use them for sandwiches, chips and cut-up vegetables. It sure beats washing out those little plastic bags! My kids bring them to school and happily bring them home. Plus, it keeps the sandwiches from getting squished by other items in their lunch boxes.
I think these little guys are brilliant. I've been using them and I'm quite happy so far. Plus the eco pattern is very fun.
I love it! Not only does it work to wrap my sandwiches and wraps, but it a great placemat. I've found that using this placemat helps me create an acutal "lunch time" atmosphere. I won't eat at my desk without it again.
Finally! a replacement for those sandwich bags! My husband is very pleased with how fresh the Wrap-N-Mat keeps his sandwiches, and provides him with a clean surface from which to eat them. And I like not having those pesky bags to wash every day, not to mention doing our part to reduce our usage of plastic. Thanks!
I have always felt guilty about using so many plastic baggies. This mat is cute and works great. It washes off easy too.
Wonderful product. Keeps sandwiches and snacks fresher then plastic bags. Easy clean-up and no more sandwich bags in the landfill. My husband was skeptical at first but now he loves it. I bought two more for my daughter and her partner. I can not say enough wonderful things about this wrap-n-mat.
I love the Wrap-N-Mat! Great alternative to plastic bags for on-the-go food storage. It looks very nice as well, and people are always surprised when I pull a sandwich out of it. It also becomes a great placemat, and it's easy to clean. Fantastic!
My husband and I take a lot of bicycle trips and we pack a lunch to take along. These wrap-n-mats are perfect for us. I wish I'd had these when I was a kid. The PB&Js would have been more fun!
I love this product! What a way to save money and help the environment!! I plan on ordering more in the near future and maybe even use them as gifts for x-mas : ) Thank you! Tara K., New Jersey
Great as long as my daughter doesn't forget it in her knapsack. Thanks, Carina
The Wrap-N-Mat is great! I have thoroughly enjoyed using it so far. Even use it for my soy corn dogs.
I didn't realize how many times I pack a sandwhich to go until I bought the wrap-n-mat. Recently on a camping trip we found it most helpful. My kids also love the fact that they have a place to put all their food. The only problem I found, was I didn't order enough.
This wrap-n-mat is the best thing ever. I love wrapping my sandwiches up in it instead of baggies or plastic film wraps. I bought the EcoPrint and people really notice it. I like how I can use it as a place mat where ever I sit and I don't have to worry about my clean food touching a dirty or not so clean table. And when I am not eating sandwiches I can use it to carry other things like my organic sunflower seeds or my whole grain crackers. The only problem I have it when I do carry a sandwich, I have not place to carry my crackers. :) Guess I will have to buy one or two more.
These mats are great. No more using a bag every day and keeps any mess contained. Great for a placemat to eat on too!
Great item, very convenient and easy to clean. Easily holds sandwiches, fruit and crackers. I even wrapped a hot ear of corn in it to take on a picnic and it was kept hot! Fantastic invention to save on ziplock baggies. I love that it is used as a little placemat when opened.
I love the Wrap N Mats! I am so glad I ordered them. I bring my lunch to work every day and I feel so much better knowing I am not using sandwich baggies and wasting all that plastic. Are you coming out with reusable baggies soon???
I love my wrap-n-mat! It's easy to clean and best of all, I don't have to buy (and throw away) plastic baggies.
Nice wrap and easy to clean. However, I wish there were more choices of designs.
I love the wrap-n-mat! It is not only great with sandwiches, but also with crackers. It is so easy to clean.
what a fantastic alternative to wasteful sandwich baggies! we love our wrap-n-mats. ordered two, then ordered some more, ...will be ordering more so that all four of us can have our sandwiches AND snacks, knowing we have taken a wonderful step in caring for the earth.
These sandwich wraps not only save the environment a plastic sandwich baggie every day but are the cutest inspirational, feel-good bags for every day at lunch! I love these wraps!
I love the sandwich wraps! They are neutral enough that even my teen boys don't mind using them, and they fold up small enough that they can just put them in their pocket to bring them home. They clean up extemely well, and are large enough to hold the larger whole grain slices of bread. Can't say enough how wonderful it's been to finally have something like this. Why did I wait so long?
I have been using this alot. It could be a little bit bigger, but I am enjoying it. It is easy to clean.
Great waste saver, easy to clean, and good looking! I'm still using the first one I purchased a couple of years ago. Wish it were a little larger for specialty breads and other larger items but still love it!
I am one of those individuals that could eat a sandwich everyday for lunch, so this sandwhich wrap really cut down on my ziplock usage. I've had lots of oohs and aaahs by coworkers that can't wait to purchase their own. And it cleans up in a cinch.
I love these wrap-n-mats. I bought one and wrapped my husband's lunch sandwich in it every day. He liked it so much that I ordered some more so that I could use them for my lunch also. They are great. I also use them for raw veggies (baby carrots, sugar snap peas, etc) not just for sandwiches. They are easy to wipe clean. I haven't washed them yet but supposedly you can wash them and hang them to dry.
This mats are absolutely perfect! They are a great way to pack sandwiches and snacks and are even easy to use. And to top it off they are easy to clean!
This wrap-n-mat is great. I used to use a plastic sandwich bag for my lunch everyday. I cringe at how many bags I went through - 5 each week, 20 each month....yikes! I encourage everyone to replace their plastic bags with this. It is super-cute and just simply wipes clean. No fuss!
Wrap-N-Mat is fabulous and supercute. Wrap-N-Mat fits sandwiches of all different sizes. My favorite aspect is that it's a place mat, and I can use it at my desk, in the cafeteria, or outside. It's so fun to use that I want to pack my lunch everyday!
The mats are great. I use containers for my lunch, but my husband needs lightweight things and I hated using plastic bags. I have 2 (should have bought more) and use one for his sandwich and the other for veggies. I love not using plastic bags.
I love the wrap-n-mat. I use it for my toast that I bring to work in the morning. Not only is it less wasteful than using plastic or paper or foil, etc. every day, it's much more enjoyable to eat off of it because it just feels cleaner and less makeshift, if that makes sense. The inside's easy to clean with a wet cloth and you can stick it in the wash to clean the outside if you get jam all over it, like I do.
A great item. Allows me to take my lunch to work every day without using expensive plastic baggies. The clean wipe inside is great for those "messy" sandwiches-cleans in a jiffy.
My daughter loves her sandwich to be wrapped in Wrap-n-Mat when she uses her laptop lunch box (Although the lunchbox has a sandwich compartment, so it is probably not necessary to wrap the sandwich). Wrap-n-Mat is easy to wipe off and I think it is a great product.
Great product. Easy to use, easy to clean and no more plastic sandwich bags!
I first received one of these as a gift and loved it. It is an easy solution for my guilt of tossing plastic bags away after every lunch. They work for most snacks including carrot, fruit, cookies, etc which is great for those of us who do not eat sandwiches. I highly recommend these (and have started giving them away as gifts myself).
This wrap-n-mat is simply genius!!! I pack my lunch everyday, so that's how many plastic bags I'm NOT consuming????
We bought this mat for my kindergartner's lunches this year and we love it. It had a plastic odor upon its first opening but that went away within a few minutes. Great for sandwiches on bread or buns, loose veggies,. Feels like you are wrapping a present - very fun.
Colorful, earth-friendly alternatives to brown-bagging it (pgs. 74-75) "The Wrap-N-Mat resolves that age-old dilemma of how to wrap a sandwich eco-consciously, and morphs into placemat when opened..."
These also wash up a lot easier than I thought they would. The surface that touches the food seems to rinse clean almost instantly under hot soapy water.
Where have wrap-n-mats been all my life? It feels like I'm having a picnic every time I open my lunch. These are a wonderful alternative to plastic bags or wax paper, are easy to use, and inspire me to pack my lunch more often.
Nice and convenient, and keeps the sandwich intact (which a Ziplock doesn't do!).
I started using the sandwich mat last week and everyone at work thought it was the greatest idea and wanted to know where I got it. I feel better not throwing away a plastic bag or plastic wrap when taking my sandwich to work!
I use it every day and wash it usually by hand. The only negative remark is, that I was wrapping saussages with ketchup - the ketchup did not wash out....not even after 3 times. It stays a fatty spot on the cloth.
I like this - saves on plastic wrap for sure. It's easy to wipe off the plastic side/sandwich side but the other is fabric. When I wash the whole thing with soap/sponge after a few uses, it takes a while to dry because it is two pieces of fabric. I wish the whole thing was the plastic material... I've seen them somewhere before, probably a different brand. But I like this item. I too wish the velcro was longer to accommodate smaller sandwiches.
This is a great alternative to a sandwich baggie. It works better for a sandwich than a wrap, though. It would be great if it could close a little tighter to help hold wraps together. Other than that, this is a nice product!
I love these, very convenient and easy to use. My only down side is cleaning the cloth side. You can't put in the washer so it stains easily, but the food side cleans with just a damp cloth.
I really like the design of the wrap-n-mat, but both the cloth and the plastic seem very low quality for the price. Since the product is essentially a little plastic sewn to a small piece of cloth for $6.95ish, I'd expect both pieces of material to be more substantial. On mine in particular, the plastic arrived with scratches and some small holes before I'd even used it once. That complaint notwithstanding, I've used it every day since it arrived and it fits my needs just the way I'd hoped it would.
I bought these for my husband and he really likes them. He said they keep the sandwich fresh and he likes how they convert to a place mat. I like that I won't have to continue buying sandwich bags.
We love our wrap. It makes it easier for my son to eat his lunch. Clean up is a snap, much easier than plastic containers.
easy to clean; much better for floppy PB&Js than a bag style sandwich wrapper
We first received a couple of the Wrap-n-mats as gifts. We bought a couple more so we could use one while the other was cleaned/dried. The kids use these with their Recycled Cotton Lunch bags. The only problem we've run into is that one child stuffs his lunch bag into his back pack and his sandwich gets squished. The other child carries her lunch bag separately and does not have that problem.
Great for kids lunchboxes!
I absolutely love my Wrap-N-Mat! I have used it every workday since receiving it, and because I got the red check mat, it's like a picnic everyday! Wipes down easy, folds easy, and I save throwing out the zipper bag I was previously using as well as the 2 sheets of paper towels I was using as a placemat! I have already saved the money I was spending on zipper bags, and obviously it is a greener way to carry my lunch!
Its is a great idea and product to use. It makes making lunches a lot easier and more environmental safe as well. I would agree with other reviewers in regard to the comments about the size of the sandwich and closing the Wrap-N-Mat. For a smaller sandwich like Peanut Butter & Jelly, it just barely closes onto the velcro. The least thing I enjoy about the product is keeping the cloth side clean. It didnt take but a week or so for it become stained and dirty from other things outside of the sandwich itself, as well as from mayo or jelly (PB&J). Also cleaning of the plastic side for consective days use isnt that easiest thing to keep up with. There have been a few days where I didnt feel like tackling wiping down the mat for the next days use. In general I would recommend the Wrap-n-Mat to others if they asked, just would warn them about the dirtying of the cloth side mainly.
Wipes down and dries easily
It's a good product, but daily use, over time and the wrap-n-mat gets kind of stinky and gross (daily wiping and rinsing). I'm going to try bleach to get the funk out. Other than that- it's a fantastic product and much better than all the plastic baggies.
Love the Wrap-n-mat. My children each got one for Christmas and they take them to school every day.
We are very happy with our wrap-n-mats. They seem very well made and look great. They are easy to clean and and take care of our food very nicely. They are a little snug for fat sandwiches - it'll keep us from getting too greedy with fillings.
I like this product idea. I wish there were better alternatives for things smaller than your typical sandwich. I also wish the backing weren't cloth--something easier to clean would be better. But, overall, this product makes a dent in all the plastic bags.
The Wrap-n-Mat is great overall. It is easy to use and holds even a large sandwich. The only thing I would change is to maybe have the plastic just cover both sides. It would be easier to clean and wouldn't have to worry about what you are setting your lunch down on.
At first, I wasn't so sure about about the mat but after using it a few times I like it. It works well and any stuff that gets on the inside can easily be wiped off. It seems like it'll hold up well and we'll use it a lot.
I'm thrilled with the Wrap N Mat. On first use we packed sandwiches and took them to the zoo. It was so handy to have and I felt good about using it as a placemat in the picnic area. My only concern is that after wiping them off it left a filmy residue that wouldn't disappear until I hand-dried it with a paper towel.
I love the idea of this product and we have used it a lot. I do agree with other reviewers that the velcro could be longer. We also have had to throw out a couple because of forgetfulness of kids and mother. It's a product that could be improved upon, but I still highly recommend it to others.
My kids were so excited to use these for school and I love anything that helps reduce the use of baggies! Its nice that you can use them as a place mat as well. I wish the Velcro was a little longer to accommodate different sizes of bread, but overall a great product!
I love these wraps. No waste, takes up no more room than a sandwich bag, and my son loves the placemat it creates when he opens it. I wish I had thought of this first!
Effective product purchased for my school-age child; some initial confusion when wrapping sandwiches for the first couple of times. Great for providing a placemat on surfaces of questionable cleanliness. Limited choice of colors
Id have to agree in the other reviews in that its a great product but it would be even better if the velcro was longer. There are so many different sizes of bread these days and the longer velcro would help in adapting to them all. Either way, it feels great to not have to use cling wrap or sandwich bags anymore!
These can be wiped clean, or, if rinsed lightly, can be hung to dry, and will dry overnight. Having said that, ideally I think it would be best to own two mats per person, so when briefcases and lunchboxes aren't unpacked until the next morning - oops - there is still a fresh and clean mat available to pack the day's lunch. (Maybe we're just forgetful here.) I bought one to try out on my husband, and he likes it well enough, but it does get left in the briefcase overnight a bit too often. He likes to pack peanutbutter sandwiches, so the mats really do need to be cleaned thoroughly every day. Probably if he packed something less messy, a simple wipedown would suffice most of the time.
I love the concept - but am having a hard time getting my kids to use it in their lunches. They are both gluten-free, so they don't eat sandwiches and the wrap-mat does not work as well for chips, veggies, nuts and fruit. But I'll keep trying b/c I do love the idea.
Bought this with great intentions and still have yet to use it. I did look it over closely and it isn't that well made and I foresee it only being reusable for a year or two (depending on how often you use it) before it starts to fall apart.
love it. easy to clean off and reuse. could use longer velcro to secure non-tradition size sandwich bread.
I really like them. They are not quite as resilient as the could be. On one of them I accidentally ripped the plastic from the fabric while cleaning it. But they are more flexible than pastic boxes and more fun.
Breakfast is so much better now that I can eat it off my bright red checked wrap-n-mat. Yeah, I bring an egg sandwich or peanut butter toast to work for breakfast instead of a pb&j for lunch. This would only be better if it could handle warm toasty bread better -- although my boyfriend loves the way it keeps his lunch sandwiches fresh and delish.
I haven't used this yet, but I love the idea of not using plastic bags so much. I will probably use it as a placemat since the lunchtable at my office is not the cleanest!
The idea is fantastic! Very durable. Thought this was a great idea for school lunches because of its 2-in-1 approach being a placemat as well. I let a little soap soak on it for a while before running it under hot water to clean it. That helped save some water for washing.
Works as advertised. Size is pretty large for a normal sandwich. Not really an issue, except it would be nice if they extended the soft side of the velcro a little more to accommodate smaller sandwiches. Would have liked to have seen this product made from recycled materials.
we love our wrap n mat. the eco design draws the attention of others as well, and a conversation about reducing waste always follows. two things: 1) don't leave it closed up or put away while wet. like any cloth, it will get moldy. it's fine after washing it, but less pretty. 2) i'd like to see a second velcro strip going in the other direction. when i make tortilla wrap sandwiches for my son, it doesn't close up well. it is designed for square sandwiches. perhaps, also a longer velcro strip in its current place. bulky foods (like three rice cakes) push it to its limits.
Good product. It serves as a placemat too. Works well with sandwiches or even cut up veggies or cookies. Fast drying.
I like that I'm not using plastic bags or "disposable" wrap for my sandwiches. I find the inside of the mat a little hard to clean. Even when you wash it with dish soap, it feels a little sticky.
This is a great product. No more do I have to use disposable (!) sandwich bags to transport my chips for lunch. I like the construction; however, I feel that a nylon material (instead of cotton) might be easier to keep clean. The Wrap-N-Mat is definitely worth the price and the peace of mind.
Good idea for a product. I haven't used it yet but plan to!
Particularly good for sandwiches. Not quite as easy to use for loose things such as chips or cookies.
I really have enjoyed this product. Recently I made the mistake of placing heated up pizza on the wrap and mat and it melted the plastic! Don't make this mistake yourself. Otherwise, I have really enjoyed saving a bag each time I use it.
I love it! I want to order a few more so my husband and I don't have to fight over who gets to take a sandwich to work! The only thing is, the bread we use is a bit larger than what can easily be wrapped by the wrap-n-mat. This isn't enough to make me not like it, I just have to wrap it tighter than I'm sure I normally would. The bread doesn't get dry or stale and the sandwich stays completely fresh though. Buy them as gifts! Everyone askes me about it!
They are a little messy for peanut butter sandwiches, but I like them.
I really like this-- simple to use, washable, and doesn't take up much room.
This is a great idea, and I would have given it a 5-star rating if I could ever find a piece of bread that works with the velcro fastening! Unless I use regular square sliced bread, I end up wrapping and securing with an elastic band. If the velcro tape had been an inch or two longer, it would have accommodated different types of bread and not just standard squares. And excellent idea that falls just short of great.
Seems like a great little addition to my lunch box!
Really handy--I use them for wrapping sandwiches, cheese, bread, etc. I wish the velcro was a little longer to allow for even more creative uses.
It's a bit sad that the Wrap-N-Mat doesn't come in more solid colors or less ornate patterns, but that's just a personal preference. One thing that I think would help the Wrap-N-Mat is if the plastic portion were quilted down to the fabric backing. Mine seems to like to separate a bit, which feels odd. Otherwise, it is a fine product!
This item is practical, easy to use, and a real saver: I have cut down substantially on my use of plastic sandwich bags. It's even more flexible than a sandwich bag because to a certain extent it'll accommodate sandwiches of different sizes. Everyone's been commenting on it favorably.
I love this thing! It's practical and useful. That said, I could have probably made it myself for half the price. But still it's a great idea.
I like this product a lot, easy to use and easy to clean. I would be happier with multiple sizes to choose from (say, another, bigger size). For me, it's a tight fit around a bagel, or any hearty sandwich.
I like the Wrap-N-Mat's convenience for my children's lunch boxes, especially for odd sized items like a half sandwich, apple slices or a rice cake. A traditional container takes up so much space that there's no room for other items. In this sense, the mat is ideal. HOWEVER... be very careful with this product when using anything that is warm!! I made a bagel and put cream cheese on it, then promptly wrapped it up. This melted the plastic of the liner and permanently deformed it so that it can't be used.
I really like these bags. I use them for my husbands lunch. The only thing I would request, maybe they could be a tad bit bigger. When I finish making the sandwich and try to wrap them up in the bag, it doesn't quite fit right. It's difficult to seal them up. But, I still love them. And, everyone ask me where to get them.
Great product. BUT with bread being larger in size your product needs to be bigger or make the velcro closure longer to accomodate the larger slices of bread.
Good stuff....my son uses it for his lunch sandwiches and as far as I know likes it, thanks. Could be a little bigger though (just a little)
I love the idea of not wrapping my sandwich in a plastic bag every day. But I do have an issue with the fact that my bread sticks to the inside a little and my velcro closure strip is starting to come off already and I've only had it a couple of weeks. But I use it every day.
The wrap-n-mats are great! It took me a little while to get used to how to clean them. The kids love them and I love the fact that they have a placemat & sandwich bag in one. They keep the kids sandwiches fresh and I know they aren't putting their lunches on a dirty table. Great product!
Great idea! They double as a place mat to keep your eating area clean. Helps reduce wastes, I love it! Would like to try one with out the PEVA lining and see how sandwich freshness compares.
I like this product a lot. It will hold a sandwich neatly and contain it. My concern: what is the plastic lining that is on the inside of this? Is it lead leaching vinyl? Some type of plastic?
This product has been useful in packing lunches and can accomodate a large sandwich. The color I wanted was not available, but I got an email the next day telling me that. I was offered the option to get another color or wait until the color was back in stock. I was surprised that the mat was very plain, just a strip of velcro and the contact info sew to the front -- it looks fancier in the pictures.
Hi I really like the wraps. It is a great product, ecological and cute. There is something much more pleasant about unwrapping a sandwich from the gingham wrap as compared to a plastic sandwich bag. Two issues I have: I am concerned that the velcro tab is going to rip off soon. After only four uses it already is loose. Also, how do you recommend cleaning the wrap so it remains sanitary? Thanks.
The wrap-n-mat is an attractive product and my coworkers have commented on how cool it is. The only thing I don't like is that the vinyl lining sort of sticks to itself when folded up without a sandwich inside: hardly a serious failing.
The wrap-n-mat is great! I have sandwiches for lunch nearly everyday and it is really convenient, easy to clean. I agree with others that it is good for 'standard size' bread and a tight fit for homemade bread or rye. Otherwise, a great buy.
I've received a lot of compliments on my wrap-n-mat and really like the idea. Unfortunately I put some toasted bread on there and melted part of the plastic! I would just suggest using a higher grade of plastic. Otherwise I think the construction, appearance and value are great.
I really like this sandwich wrap but it doesn't work so well with a half sandwich which is primarily how I've use it. Easy to fix though, I just wrap a rubber band around it and sandwich stays fresh.
LOVE THIS! I make my husbands lunch for him every day and surprised him one day with this. Works great and it is so nice not have all that wasted plastic (I didn't have a container for a sandwich that fits in his smallish lunch bag) Great idea!
The wrap-n-mat is a nice item, I like the way it looks, and it beats wasting bags or foil. I think it could be improved by having a quicker drying exterior fabric. When you rinse the inside, the outside invariably gets wet, and since you can't stick it in the dryer or wipe it dry, you have to wait it out to use it again.
I was disappointed from the moment I opened the package containing my new wrap-n-mats. Perhaps I did not carefully read the product description, but I did not expect the plastic lining - excatly the material I am trying to avoid. I kept one of the two that I ordered, but am sending the other one back.
Initially I was thrilled with this product. Such a simple idea and design, and it works really well for what it's meant for. I wrap my son's sandwhich in it every day for school. I bought it in September, but by December the velcro was wearing out. It still works, but each day the velcro is getting worse and I'm afraid that it won't make it through until the end of the school year. I hand wash this wrap, so I'm not sure why I'm having a problem with the velcro.
Love the concept of these wraps. Ordered three last year for schoo lunches. Two were good, but one of them started to unravel the stitching around the velcro tab within a week. It wasn't worth paying the shipping to return it, but it essentially became useless. I love the idea, but think I will try one of the other brands of reusable sandwich bags next time
It performs its function so far, but I don't like the way the plastic lining isn't sealed to the outer fabric. It doesn't seem especially durable, like it may separate over time. We shall see.
These are ok. I like the idea. The velcro does collect lint during washing and there are not built in velcro covers so to wash you have to have it closed or you get snags. The fabric also will mildow if not dried quickly. A closure other then velcro and a non-cotton fabric that does not hold moisture would be big improvements.
Good idea, works well but lasted about two weeks in a kids lunch box. Inside lining is made of a thin disposible quaility plastic. Should be made with vinyl or oil cloth or anything durable.
The wrap-n-mat is a great idea and does a nice job of keeping sandwiches together and fresher than they would be were you to wrap them in a cloth napkin. That said, the cloth napkin would also work. I will say that I've managed to avoid using several plastic baggies thanks to this.
I was alittle disappointed in the wrap-n-mat. The plastic liner is not very durable. It seemed to have some tiny tears in it when it arrived. It doesn't seem like it will last the school year.
Has a sort of an amateur "made at home" cheap feel/look to it, but it works well for what it sets out to do, and is certainly better than using plastic grocery bags for my sandwich every day. Fits sandwiches made from Arnold's bread well, anything much smaller and your food won't be wrapped very tight due to the velcro not lining up. The PEVA lining actually does keep a sandwich from drying out and getting all crusty, although it is worth noting that it's only stitched around the edges (you can physically separate the cloth from the plastic lining and make a pocket of air). I can imagine getting soap or something stuck in there. Good alternative, you could do worse, but this product could be better.
I thought it would be one piece of fabric that was either coated with plastic, or treated w/ something to make it water/stain resistant, but it's just a piece of fabric sewn together with a piece of clear plastic. It does what it's advertised to do, but it just seemed like it could have been constructed better.
I don't like that the inside is lined in plastic. Otherwise, it's alright, I guess, but I purchased a laptop lunch box instead. I would recommend that instead for kids lunches.
Could be made to be a bit more adjustable to fit smaller sandwiches Or needs to be able to close up better than it does.
The Wrap-N-Mat is a great idea but the construction needs some help. The plastic lining is not attached to the cloth except for at the edges. Due to the nature of cloth being porous water gets in between the cloth and the plastic when washed and does not always dry well. Also, after searching the package endlessly I did not come up with any helpful directions for washing. Do not use soap! This also gets stuck between the cloth and the plastic and makes your food taste like soap.
I'm concerned about the 'plastic' on the wrap-N-mat. I would prefer that it be all fabric and that way I could easily launder it. Other than that it was great.
I love the Wrap-N-Mat. I use it for sandwiches, bagels, fruit slices, just abaout everything. My only suggestion is that the strip that you hook the velcro tab to, be a bit longer so that you can wrap smaller items more securely.
I think the concept of this product is good, but the Wrap-N-Mat just isn't for me. I tried using it several times and, as a germ-a-phobe, cleaning it is a hassle. If I wash it in the sink with a dish rag, the cloth side of the mat gets wet and needs time to try. If I wipe it down with just a damp paper towel, well for starters, I am wasting the towel, and I am also concerned about how many germs remain in place. I am going to have to keep searching for an alternative to disposable plastic baggies. In the meantime, I'll give this another shot and make sure its cleaned with ample time to dry.
Love the print and how functional it is! Glad it is made of PEVA but why on earth does it have such a STRONG smell? Wondering if PEVA is lesser of the devil but still toxic?
We have been using our wrap-n-mats for a little over a year and they are great! The only negative is that she has switched to making some of them in China!!! Has she thought of the environmental impact of bringing the product to and from China? I think less of a profit vs keeping it usa made would be nice. We won't purchase any more in the future which is too bad.
Not bad . . . certainly better than throwing away a plastic bag or ball of foil everyday. Also very easy to clean. The only problem is taht it won't take sandwiches made out of abnormally large pieces of bread, but my girlfriend and I get aroudn that by just making triple-decker sandwiches with regular sized bread, which fit fine.
I have enjoyed the wrap mats very much. I love to know that i am not using plastic bags anymore. However i purchased 2 wrap mats and one of them the one that had the print on it, not the solid colored ones. There are black spots on it and it looks like some kind of mildew. I wash them after every lunch comes home and let them air dry.The spots won't come off. The solid blue one looks fine. Over all they are a great alternative to plastic bags and the kids love them as well. Thanks!!
I love the fabric but I do not care for the funky smell of plastic. It is a great idea and would definitely buy this again if they can somehow minimize the smell. It is right in your nose, when you are using this to hold your sandwich while you eat. If you are not eating on the run, and you are using your bare hands to hold the sandwhich, it is probably fine. Otherwise, it is a great placemat which is what I use it for now.
I really love the wrap and mat, but it did not come with washing instructions. Unfortunately, I put it through with the wash and it was ruined! I was really disappointed because I was trying to save waste, not make it! The product is a great idea, I just with it had included washing instructions.
Not as neat as I was hoping for, but certainly does do the trick. Holds a regular size sandwich, but don't plan on making it any bigger or it will leave you with crumbs spilling out.
I like the way the wrap-n-mat seals and the general idea of the product, but while (gently!) washing the mat before its first use, i noticed there were 2 holes in the thin plastic liner. The outside layer of the wrap is fabric and the inside is VERY THIN plastic. I'm going to look for an alternate version of the product because i don't know how to prevent water from getting between the layers and molding.
I've never had such buyers remorse on such a low cost item. It's not dishwasher safe. It's not clothes washer safe. You can't heat in it. And it does nothing to keep your food from getting crushed. I don't know why I ever thought this would be better than tupperwrae or similar containers. It's not that I think the product is inferior in quality, I just don't think it serves the purpose well.
sandwich wrapnmat- wasn't such a good idea. Not adjustable so anything smaller than a large sandwich does not fit. Wash and dry somewhat of a hassle.
This wrap mat did not work so well for my kids' lunches - after a month or so of use, it was hard to keep clean. It did not survive the washing machine, but so yucky I just had to stop using it. Back to reusable hard containers for us :-(
The wrap-n-mat is cute but I think I would have preferred if the whole thing was either plastic or made of material, not both. I am a little worried about washing it if the material part gets dirty. I am not sure what is going to happen to the plastic inside coating. I like the idea, but I probably would not buy this item again.
I don't recommend these for children's lunches. The velcro is sewn on with single stitching, and comes loose easily. They also aren't that easy to clean when you have kids who tend to be somewhat messy eaters. The idea seemed good online, but I think we'll end up replacing these with some sort of plastic sandwich keeper.
I loved these bags at first, but after the third washing the fabric pilled and frayed. I wish the fabric was more washer-friendly because the idea is great!
My wrap-n-mat turned moldy in the dishwasher... gross.
I really wanted to like this and was very excited about using it for my daughter... but it never even made it into her lunch box. I had it hanging over the side of the sink, and it fell into dishwater. The plastic melted onto itself, and that was the end of that. I didn't think the water was even that hot. I love the idea though...
Great idea but the plastic melts when you put a warm sandwich on them. I had to throw them out. So if you plan to grill or heat your sandwich; make sure to take something else to haul it back to your desk.
This is disappointing because of the plastic liner. It would work better for me if it was two layers of heavy nylon that I could throw in the wash. Instead, the inside layer is a thin, clear plastic sheet. I have to wipe it off with a wet cloth, which doesn't seem sanitary. It does not appear to be something that would hold up to frequent machine washing. When my son wads it into his bag, the plastic part comes away from the backing, and it's a wadded mess of plastic. The idea is terrific. I wish they would make a version that doesn't include the plastic.
