Thanks for the great reply. I guess I just got unlucky. Though I did read an advertisement for recycled feed bag totes, and it said the bags could not be washed, so ... I'm going to have to do a bit more thinking on this!
Hand wash,use shampoo or dish detg,air dry.If u r making a design that requires cutting the bag cut your design then wash the pieces,the less u turn the sacks inside out the better.I have this problem too,when ever i buy empty ones i am always told they r like new,well most of them end up as tarps under projects.good luck to u and always empty your sacks after purchase,oh and there r some sacks that only have one layer,there r better to work with, wild bird seed sacks r usually great!
