Default Cleaning nylon bags

Ok, I've done some fruit wines, now my nylon bag is stained from blue berries and plums.

Any tips on cleaning between uses? How many uses before I should pitch it?

I wash mine in the washing machine with a bit of oxyclean free. I use 'em till they develop a hole or a snag or start to fray too much, then I replace 'em.
Regards, GF.

Mine is orange from Pumpkin but it doesn't smell like it. Just stained and will probably stain another color later. Just wash in the sink and I tried sanitizer after. Should be good though.

Mine are all sitting outside, in five gallon buckets, letting Iaasic do the work. Then just throw them in the washing machine with a little oxyclean, or hydrogen peroxide.

Hopefully you are staying dry Annie, you are about 50 miles closer to the eye than I am.

I do a bleach soak and a good rinsing.

Bag will be pure white and look like new.

Mine goes through the normal laundry, after I spray it off with the hose.

Thanks, Brother. We aren't too dry here, but hey, it is...what it is. Mother Nature affects MANY things...my wine making isn't one of them!!! Hope you are dry and safe also!
