How to clean your bags & dry sift screens


1. Always rinse the bags thoroughly with cold water immediately after use.
Do not use warm or hot water, as this will clog the screens with melted trichomes.
2. Repeat if necessary.
3. Hang the bags and always allow to air dry completely before storing them to prevent mold or rot issues.
► For heavy stains, soak overnight, then repeat step 1.
► Never use detergent or solvents.
► If your screens become clogged,  you can use 99% isopropyl alcohol on a soft toothbrush to gently remove tough stains.  Keep alcohol away from edge of screen (stitching).

For screens that are smeared and gummed up with squashed resin heads and bits of plant matter we find it's best to use a paint brush or lint free cloth with a high % of clean alcohol such as food grade isopropyl or another food grade alcohol. Alcohol dissolves resin and helps wash away the plant bits stuck with the resin. This will make your synthetic or stainless steel screens as clean as new. Be sure to use a lint free cloth as this won't leave any microfibres in the mesh screen. Do not use warm/hot water.

Use lots of alcohol, a very wet dripping brush and brush the horizontally placed mesh so the alcohol drips through the mesh. You will probably find that after two or three quick strokes back and forth across the screen you will need another dip in the alcohol as it runs off the brush fast, that's ok, use lots of alcohol. Brush both sides of the mesh over a dish or tray. Use magnification to check out the meshes before and after cleaning.
