I want to make some "grab-it"s a type of potholder and use the insulation I think is called Insul Bright in them. I can't find any information about how many layers you need to use in a potholder, whether there is a right and wrong side to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is no right/wrong side to insul bright.
When I make my potholders, the pattern calls for regular cotton quilt batting and insul bright.

I layer (top to bottom) fabric, batting, insul bright, fabric.

The batting goes next to your hand and the insul bright is closest to the heat.

HTH,
Donna

Just make sure you have the right Insulbrite. There is a similar product which has the mylar exposed on one side and a thicker batting layer. The real Insulbrite has the mylar sandwiched between thinner layers of batting. The unprotected mylar type isn't supposed to be used in contact with heat.

You can also get the ironing board fabric, which is batting and a thick layer of silvery fabric, either quilted or unquilted. It's often used on manufactured potholders and oven mitts. It can scorch from flame, but holds up to oven temps well.
