If I knew this, then I could differentiate. Anybody know?
    the side with the silvery flecks is the side that should be put toward the hot object-----------ie the top.

    I just bought 3 yards of it and you can see the shiney on both sides fairly easy, well not effort really.

    I'm glad you asked this question as I didn't know there was a difference. Like I tell my friends, I learn something new here just about every day.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    The "shiny" side of Insulbrite is the side with the mylar coating. Here's a picture of both sides. You can see that the mylar coating side is rolled into the bolt.

    We sell quite a bit of Insulbrite and with each sale we include the following advisory, which is taken from the manufacturer:

    Important Notes: When using in table runners or placemats, put the
    silver side up. When using for potholders or oven mitts, put the silver
    side toward the heat, and use an extra layer of cotton batting such as
    Warm ní Natural under the Insulbrite to provide additional protection
    to hand or table. Insul-brite is heat-resistant, not heat-proof!
    When machine quilting with Insul-Brite, your needles may wear more
    quickly and may break. To prevent this from happening, quilt
    SLOWER than usual and have spare needles available! Do NOT use in the microwave!
