    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.

    Agree...... Chuck them. Cost to replace socks vs Cost to replace live stock!!

    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.
