Use large foil potato chip bags to heat rolls and bread in the oven. :beachball

I'm wondering about the safety of that tip. My neighbor works for Utz potato chips so I'll ask him what's really in those bags and if it's safe to heat them in the oven.

I was wondering about the chemicals in the printing as well being heated.

I know several years ago there was a concern about reusing bread wrappers inside out so the printing would be touching the food, something about lead in the ink, no sure if that is still the case or not.

I do reuse bread wrappers so slide a new loaf into to freeze as the second wrapping helps keep freezer burn away.

Good point Roberta.

Not so sure bout the last tip posted here??? I would b afraid of lead......

I don't think they can use lead in food wrappers. I do reuse bread wrappers but as Roberta mentioned, they are a "double coating" so the ink is never touching food.

My neighbor misunderstood my question and replied that the chip bags are not microwave safe. Well, I'm sure we all KNEW that. Next time I see him I will have to ask about oven safety. But the foil bags are made more with mylar and plastic than actual foil. There is a plastic layer to those bags--so I would worry about how that would do in the oven.

I mix 1 part scented oil with 6 parts water to use as an air freshing spray I also add it to my floor washing water, gives floors a nice shine and leaves room smelling fresh.

Cooked beans have a refrigerator life of approximately 5 days. If you boil the beans whole without even removing the ends you will retain 50% more of the nutrients. If you place a very small amount of sugar in the cooking water of beans it will bring out the flavor. Baking soda should never be added to green beans whille they are being cooked as it will reduce the nutrient content of the beans.
