Can a burlap bag be washed? We bought some to use as chair covers for a fall party. The bags are very course and have an oily odor. I want to wash them to soften them up a bit and get rid of the smell.
Dear k I believe so many years ago people in the farm land areas reused everything and these were made into drees's, Therefore must be able to wash and hang dry I don't think drying in heat would be good idea. have a great day.
Have a great day folks too.
You can wash them using your washing machine. Put mild detergent and use cold warm water function. This will help soften it up a bit. You can also try adding fabric conditioner to make the fabric a lot softer. Run it in slow spin cycle or choose the delicate wash cycle so that the fabric will stay intact.
