Wipe the inside of the bags with a warm damp cloth and mild detergent, spot clean outside of bags with a warm damp cloth and mild detergent, allow to dry completely.
Do not wet the stitching or immerse in water or liquid.
If a spill within the bag seeps into the seams, immediately remove all the items from the bag and clean the area with water only and dry completely before using again. (Note: some spills may weaken the seams and cause loosening of the seam.
Do not overload the bags - maximum weight of 4kgs at any one time is recommended.
Remove the stainless steel hardware and recycle, reuse or donate. Separate cotton layers, cut or shred into small squares (smaller pieces will decompose faster), and place into your at home compost bin.
Depending on the health and maturity of your compost bin, your bag will return to the earth between one week and three months.
