    Lightbulb An Idea and a question

    I think I have a good idea that I haven't seen posted before.
    With the new metal wallets that have come to be very popular lately for guarding your credit card info. I decided that I want to make a few fabric wallets with a layer of the silver material found on ironing board covers. Do you think it would be enough to keep those "trackers" from getting the info off CC? I suppose if it is a good idea, I'll see these being sold everywhere. If it works... all the better to keep the creeps from steeling CC info. Dee

    From what I understand, the culprit with credit cards is the RFID chip inside the card. I've requested cards without it and the cc company was happy to send them. I can't use them in blink machines like I used to but there's only one store around here that has blink anyway, and I can still use my cc the regular way. As for the fabric, I doubt it would be dense enough metal-wise.

    I heard that aluminum foil will work.

    If aluminum foil works, then maybe you could use the bottom from a disposable baking pan to cut pieces to fit your card holder. I think I'm going to try it!!!
