HEMP BAG CARE INSTRUCTIONS
WASHING

Before First Use:
  1. Hand wash the bag with organic soap*. Rinse well
  2. Sanitise by boiling in water for 15 minutes
  3. Dry in well ventilated area

Suggestion: Keep seams outside for easier straining, cleaning and faster drying.
*Not laundry or dishwashing detergent

After Each Use:
Thoroughly wash your nut milk bag and then dry. 
Regular sanitising is recommended, particularly if used for sprouting. Sanitise by - 
  1. Boiling in water for 10-15 minutes; or
  2. Soak in pure vinegar for a few hours; or
  3. Soak in a fully saturated saline solution for a few hours
  4. Rinse well by hand in filtered or distilled water and air dry (ideally in direct sunlight)

Note: Your bag may discolour over time from boiling, this is normal.

DRYING

Quick drying is important. Drying is usually quick if it takes 1-2 hours, which is common if you live in a dry climate. Direct sunlight speeds up drying time. Make sure that your bag is completely dry before storage. Do not use the same washing machine or clothes dryer that you use for your hemp bag. We recommend against these since they are not known for being completely clean and certainly not clean or safe enough for food items
 

WHY HEMP FABRIC?

Hemp is an extremely fast growing crop, producing more fiber yield per acre than any other source. Hemp can produce 250% more fiber than cotton and 600% more fiber than flax using the same amount of land. The amount of land needed for obtaining equal yields of fiber place hemp at an advantage over other fibers.

Hemp fiber is one of the strongest and most durable of all natural textile fibers. Products made from hemp will outlast their competition by many years. Not only is hemp strong, but it also holds its shape, stretching less than any other natural fiber. The more hemp is used, the softer it gets. Hemp doesn't wear out, it wears in. Hemp is also naturally resistant to mold and ultraviolet light.

Most nut milk bags are currently made from polyester and nylon materials. A polyester fibre is made from synthetic polymes that are made from esters of dihydric alcohol and terpthalic acid. Both of these are highly toxic and these toxins are not completely removed after the manufacturing process. Nylon fibre is petroleum based and heavily receives chemical treatments using caustic soda, sulfuric acid and formaldehyde during its manufacturing. Moreover, the fabric receives a combination of bleaching and softer agents such as chloroform, limonene, pentene and terpineol. Because of this reason, Nylon is one of the least eco-friendly textiles and even after the manufacture process finished, the fabric still retains toxins residues that can be harmful to people’s health. Some health conditions are related to the frequent wear of nylon & polyester clothes such as cancer, skin allergies, dizziness, headaches, spine pains and system dysfunction. Because allergies and sensitivities to such chemicals are on the rise, many are seeking alternatives.  

There are cotton nut milk bags available, however unless they are certified organic they too contain many chemical residues. Cotton is a very pesticide and energy-intensive crop, especially compared to hemp. Hemp offers an earth-friendly alternative to all other fabrics. Not only is it highly durable, it is also mildew and microbe resistant.   

Although synthetic and cotton bags are more affordable, we believe there are many who would like the opportunity to access a nut milk bag made from natural materials. Especially for those who pay 70 - 100% more for insecticide-free or organic almonds, we are confident they would pay a similar increase for a natural nut milk bag. It's all about having that option available for customers and letting them decide. Especially as awareness increases in regards to the risks of chemical use and the process to derive synthetic materials, more people will make informed choices.
