How can I reuse the foil coffee bags?

CindyJewellmartinKelli L. Milligan


The foil bags pull apart, are more substantial than just foil, and they open up to about 12x12 - I thought about taping together to form 1) a thermal sheet for camping/survival 2)an emp cover for generator 3)a tarp. I am really interested if it would be adequate for EMP use. Anyone done these before?

Confirmation/ Ideas appreciated THANKS

    That's an awesome idea. Great source for recycling and use.

    Sounds like something I would do! I would definitely use aluminum mending tape to connect the pieces, not a needle or sewing machine. And backing one sheet with another ought to really be effective, maybe using a plastic tarp or drop cloth as the base. Best wishes! Jewell

    I'm thinking that they would make great wrapping paper, especially for small gifts.
