From the Blogger: "The microwave potato bag is a DIY-take on a baked potato cooking method that’s probably been around as long as household microwave ovens—microwaving potatoes in plastic sandwich bags. Although people have been using this technique for years, I’d rather avoid unnecessary plastic and BPA. A simple handmade all-cotton baked potato bag seems like a much better way—it keeps the moisture in while the potato cooks, it’s washable and reusable, and BPA free. The potatoes come out perfectly delicious each and every time. The bag also makes a great gift for family and friends."
