Within 45 days, this grill cover is disintegrating in ways I've never seen. It's crumbling and tearing into little bits. I'd have to guess that that it just can't stand up to the sun's infrared or ultraviolet. Maybe it would last if you've got it under an awning, gazebo, or porch roof in a location where the sun's rays never beam. I'm a nut about keeping receipts and original packaging and since WalMart has a 90 day return policy, I took it back and got my $9.00. These are still in stores near my house so beware--they're probably in your neighborhood store, too. As a grill cover, it's a total loss but as a biodegradeable sheet, it might be useful. If you needed to cover something for a short term and wished the plastic to biodegrade shortly thereafter, it would be useful. In our society, we use the contents of a shampoo bottle in about 1 to 2 weeks but the empty container we toss into the trash lasts for about 900 years. The company making these grill covers should not consider this a total loss. There is possibly a need for their "PVC free" formula--as they call it. Put shampoo (and such) in containers made from this. Then, when tossed onto the top level of a landfill heap, it will biodegrade in a few months exposed to the sun before it is then covered with soil to prepare for the next layer of trash. This grill cover reminds me of the old celluloid movie film that I've read about. I'm thinking they might have dragged up that "biodegradable" formula to make this imitation plastic?
