Our Pouches are transparent
The number one reason why you should choose Sinchies reusable pouches and ziplock bags over other brands is because all our pouches are transparent. This is the most important thing when choosing pouches! You need to be able to see inside them. Why? Firstly and most importantly, you need to see if they are clean. If you have a coloured pouch you can’t see if there are any bits stuck inside them and risk contaminating your food. Secondly, having a clear pouch allows you to see the contents to ensure it’s fresh!
We are a small, family-owned Australian Business
You’ll be supporting a small business which means you’re supporting a dream, helping to put food on a table and keep a roof over our heads.
Sinchies are made from plastic using a combination of PET, NY and PE. Our pouches are free from BPA, Phthalate and PVC. There are no chemical phthalates or bisphenol A (BPA) in PET plastic, and therefore PET plastic does not leach these substances. PET plastic is approved as safe for food and beverage contact by FDA and similar regulatory agencies throughout the world, and has been for more than 30 years.
We are constantly looking at ways of being more sustainable and are working with our factories to always ensure there isn’t much waste by using full rolls of materials.
Your imagination is the only limit! Here are a few of our favourite things:
- baby food
- school lunchbox
- baby formula portions
- breast milk
- frozen treats
- fruit puree
- cocktail mix
- energy gels
- art supplies
Honestly the list is endless. Let us know if we've missed anything!
Use this text to answer questions in as much detail as possible for your customers.
Short answer YES, of course you can! Write on your pouches with a permanent marker (before filing) and then rub it off with eucalyptus oil. Alternatively some masking tape works wonderfully and leaves no sticky residue.
Yes! Sinchies pouches are safe to use in the freezer. Cook up a storm and fill all your pouches at once and refrigerate meals in bulk. Storing empty pouches in the freezer is also a great way to prevent mould if pouches aren’t thoroughly dried properly, especially in humid climates.
Short answer - yes!
We don’t recommend putting your Sinchies in a dishwasher as some machines will get to very high temperatures that will break-down the seals of your pouches, thus shortening their lifespan. Dishwashers may not also get into the creases and your pouches are unlikely to dry properly after a dishwashing cycle. Please watch our useful video on how to clean your Sinchies for more information.
We can’t say exactly how long Sinchies last as everyone uses them for different things and take care of them in different ways. We have had some customers using the same batch for years and some only for six months as they’ve constantly been heating the pouches, freezing them and washing them in the dishwasher (please note, we do not recommend putting pouches through the dishwasher). Generally we say six months is a good life, due to the low price point of the pouches.
Like any company, naturally we do experience some faulty products out of the 1000s of pouches we produce. In the unlikely event that you receive a faulty product please let us know within 6 months of the purchase date, otherwise we will not be able to offer a replacement. Please email us too start the process with details of the fault, a photo and your order name or number.
- Wash your Sinchies reusable food pouches and ziplock bags before using them for the first time.
- Ensure the lid is tightly fastened if using a spout pouch.
- Open the pouch’s bottom gusset (ziplock top or bottom). If using side spout pouches, expand the bottom gussets so they can stand up. If using top spout pouches we recommend placing them in cups or use one of our filling stations to free up your hands and make it easier to fill multiple pouches at once.
- Use a 1 litre Sinchies reusable food pouch (for thicker consistency foods), or a collapsible funnel and jug (for ‘runnier’ liquids) and fill your Sinchies. Pour your scrumptious food up to the ‘fill to here’ line on the pouches.
- When sealing the ziplock on the side spout pouches – widen the bottom gusset with two fingers to help ensure your contents doesn’t spill out the top. When sealing the top spout pouches, widen the neck a bit and give it a gentle tap.
The easiest way to clean all your pouches is by using one of our cleaning brushes! Supporting the pouch with your hand use a twisting motion so the brush gets right down to the bottom of the pouch and into the corners.
Our cleaning brushes come with a smaller brush (hidden at the bottom) to clean the spout and seal.
Drying Sinchies are kind of like drying a drink bottle – it can take a little while. The neck of the pouch needs to be kept open to allow air to flow through them. To combat this problem, Sam and her Dad designed our very own custom Sinchies drying rack which does the trick! Fold the side seals together (so the bottom gusset and ziplock stay open) and pop them over the prongs on your Sinchies drying rack or dish rack. Other suggestions are:
- Using a short glass and some spoons or chopsticks – place the utensils in the glass, pop each Sinchies pouch over one and they’ll dry in no time.
- Use a round peg laundry hanger or hang them up on your washing line.
- Skip the need for a thorough drying by giving them a shake good shake after washing and storing them in the freezer until their next use.
