Does anybody re-use their grain bags in partial extract brewing?
I've tossed the last couple hop bags I've in my all extracts because it seemed like they were too messy to deal with but larger muslin bags are around 3 bucks... seems a little wasteful to be tossing one at each batch.
I dump all the grains out of them, and then rinse well. Then, I either throw them in the laundry with the dish towels, or run them through the dishwasher with the dishes.
+1. I just toss mine in the top shelf of the dishwasher.

Nylon bags are very much reusable. When it finally wears out, you can get cheap replacements at Home Depot - look for a 2 pack of Large Paint Strainers available next to the heavy duty paint sprayer display, should be about $3 for 2 of them.
