Advice for rag cleaning

Recommended Posts

I do know rag houses that will professionally clean of course. But... Im just gonna diy this one...

got a little dirty 8x8 1/2 silent grid that got a little wet and muddy. Was gonna just soak in the sink with dish soap but wanted to see if anyone had advice.

Other thought was maybe delicate cycle in the washer and hang dry.


Btw... not really worried about ruining it so this can be a test.

Rags are usually treated with fire retardant, which will be removed if you wash it. As it's your own, you may not care too much, but if it was a rental, you should leave the rental house to do any cleaning, as they will want to re-treat it.

Valid point. I know rags like duvetyne are heat treated but are you sure diffusion is as well?

If thats the case Ill just buy a new one and get this one cleaned at a later time.

We've been charged in the past for a couple of 6x6 rags that got soaked through in the rain. Any material that is going to have hot lamps placed close to it should be treated.
