Can you use synthetic stretch toweling for making rice bags, that you heat in the microwave?

No it's not safe, good luck.
Ditto what kffrmw88 said. It isn't safe, they prob would melt or start a fire. Plus they wouldn't retain the heat for your pack as well. I think all of the commercial ones for sale I have seen are 100% cotton.
This doesn't address the fabric issue but has a few safety tips on it:
And don't leave them heating unattended etc.
I've used plain muslin when I make mine, and I'll make a cute cover (think mini-pillowcase) out of cotton flannel.
I use flannel. I would think what your talking about might melt.
I use old T-shirt fabric, myself. I've never had a problem with it. :)
Only use fabric that is 100% cotton. You can make them using old jeans, shirts, sheets, etc.
Hi. I use fleece and have sold hundreds of them. I make them 12 inches by 12 inches and when you heat them 2-3 minutes you get a moist heat. My people that buy them come back year after year to buy more. Good luck.
