This is a cut and paste from the Patreon Discord. I'm hoping for further clarification, discussion, maybe links to equipment, and if you are brave - include your fails so we all don't make the same mistakes.
MissionHillMelts: Question for my hash makers, how do you guys clean your sieves when you're done with them? Spray in iso and wipe them down?
alfred: That’s what i do. And i have a dedicated like sponge for it
alfred: Kinda like this [pic attached]
oregondaze: Would freezing it and knocking it be helpful? I’ve been freezing my wash bags that get greased up before further cleaning and I’ve found it helps me do a more thorough job without the use of solvents.
alfred: Someone on the podcast did that i think it may of been dablogic
But some of the people on here have talked about ut
I’ve never had an issue after iso and a scrub with the sieve do have never thought further curious for someone like Adam or mts to chime in
Jameson_Welbourn: I am not Adam or mts but I have has issues w iso damaging the bags
oregondaze: Same. I don’t use iso on anything but my tables and spoons at this point.
HumphreyHashish: Isopropyl for sure has a bad effect on the bags. Ethanol would be a better choice to use. Rosin bags as well.
@simpleeadam mentioned that Sam from Dab logic stores his wash bags in a freezer. The only time they arent frozen is during a wash and cleaning. (edited)
hash_uh_clock: he also washes his bags with oxyclean, dump rinse repeat
HumphreyHashish: I use oxyclean as well. I'm gonna try some alconox from @mtsfarm's recommendation
mtsfarm: Just pour a little [alconox] in a 5 gallon bucket with room temp water soak if bad, just wash and rinse thoroughly with cold water. If I soaked them I will also soak them again in cold water only once after rinsing and cleaning and rinse again after. As someone pointed out the other day, it's technically a detergent, and takes a good rinse. But works great
