While at the Denver Art Museum today, my friend Tricia had these great sandwich and snack bags from Lunchskins. She said she can throw them into the dishwasher to get them clean, and they replace many of the ziplocs I felt trapped using everyday for school packed lunches. I checked them out online, and obviously this is a booming market right now- have you found a certain kind of sac you like?  I ordered some Lunchskins to try- will report back!

    I have seen these for a while now and am so curious- thinking of pb and J in them getting gooey and how do chips etc stay fresh? Looking forward to your findings!

    I would worry about the plastic decomposing and depositing those carcinogins on other dishes in the dishwasher.

    Hi there! Just found you guys!! Thanks for writing about LunchSkins.

    Our baggies are made from a unique fabric used in the food industry for decades – pastry bag fabric. The fabric is cotton with a thin food-safe polyurethane liner. The fabric is sourced in Germany and passes EU standards for food safety, as well as our own independent chemist tests for lead, pthalates and BPA (they tested negative for all 3).

    The bags are dishwasher safe and machine-washable. Let us know what you think!

    I love using these types of bags–they can be so cute and are so much less wasteful than plastic bags. We use them for school lunches, traveling, even just snacks at the house. My favorites come from Carbondale, CO. My friend Juliet makes them and her’s are BPA, lead and phthalate free. The bags can be wiped down or machine washed and air dried. Her fabrics are unique and sophisticated as kids’ stuff goes. She is working on a website but in the meantime can be reached at

    I just ordered a bunch of these for my kids and for birthday presents, and am excited to try them out! The best prices I’ve been able to find on them so far are at — and they offer free shipping on orders over $29. Thanks for the recommendation, S!
