Why should I be using mylar bags? As in, what is it in the mylar that makes it essential? I have lots of mylar for my indoor greenhouse, but in roll format. Just wondering if the sheet material could be adapted to food storage since I have it on hand.
The mylar is not permeable,so whatever you store in those bags remains fresher longer.Usually used in 5 gallon pails,as the plastic in the pail is semi-permeable.You may be able to use what you have,if you can cinch it up fairly tight,maybe zip tie it.
