Hi all,

My worker accidently washed the socks in the machine with detergent. Can I was them with bleech and rise them with water fiew cycles and still use them? Or should I just throw it away?

Thoughts?

Proper rinses then maybe.

Rather chuck them and replace.

My wife always throws the filter socks in the wash after doing the laundry, rinse before i change it and it seems fine.. Corals and fish doing well..
Been doing this or nearly a year... or more

I also washed my filter socks and found they clog faster than new ones.
