I listed several boxes of Kimwipes on eBay if anyone is interested in trying them.
I can't figure out how to publish a link to the auction so I'll just post the auction number. It's #300222357257. Let me know if you can't find it for some reason.
This morning I tried ironing fusible webbing to them and adhering them to another fabric as well as paper and it worked wonderfully! I'll try to get a picture or scan up of that experiment.
This is really exciting to find something so versatile right on my kitchen counter top!
My husband and I plant lettuce in our garden every year and the Kimwipes are what we usually use after we have rinsed it. We layer lettuce leaves and kimwipes and put all that inside a plastic grocery bag. We then place that bag into another grocery bag and put it all into the crisper drawer. You wouldn't believe how long the fresh lettuce lasts when stored that way...
two to three WEEKS !
Can you believe that?! We are spoiled during the "lettuce season" at our house.
We planted a gourmet mix and it was the best lettuce I've ever eaten. They sell the same thing at a local grocery store for 7.00 a pound! And ours is all natural , no chemicals at all.
Last year we had lettuce all the way through May or June.
Anyway, I do hope that there are people out there that either will read this about the Kimwipes or that those who I have shared the info with will tell other people.
I am sure that they will come up with new ways to use them.
Just like Tyvek...look at how popular that is now!
And Paintsticks! Weren't they originally markers for live stock?
Let me kow if you like them , or find a new way to use them.
I'm off to make some small quilt sandwiches so I can practice with my new Patsy Thompson DVD.
Thanks Patsy for an awesome time last Saturday...I am looking forward to sitting down with you in my studio this afternoon!
Oh, speaking of Tyvek I have to send out another big warm fuzzy to my wonderful husband. He also supplies me with Tyvek in the form of Tyvek suits used in industry...He is better than having an art store right in my own home! Not to mention what an awesome cook he is...thanks Baby!
