Care and Cleaning of SureFire™ Cornbags
When your SureFire™ Cornbags get dirty be sure to follow the correct cleaning
instructions for your particular model and style of bags:
Our standard regulation cornbags are NOT washable. They are made from 100% cotton
duck cloth canvas and filled with whole corn. You should take great care to keep
them dry at all times. If they are exposed to moisture, such as a spilled
drink or landing in a puddle, remove them immediately, dry as well as possible with
a towel, and air dry before attempting to use again. A blow dryer on low heat setting
can help accelerate the drying, but be sure the corn is completely dry before use.
Once corn gets too wet, it can get pasty and clumpy and may never play right again.
Duck cloth can be spot cleaned if you can avoid getting the corn wet, but the cloth
itself is best kept dry as well so that it doesn't shrink, fade, or fray. Never put
cornbags in the washer, dryer, dishwasher, or microwave. Standard cornbags are
inexpensive and are intended to be replaced frequently.
Resin bags with cotton cloth such as our
bags are less susceptible to damage from
moisture than corn-filled bags, but they will last longest if kept dry.
They can however be cleaned when necessary. We recommend hand washing them
in cool water with a brush, then dry them thoroughly before play. They
can be machine washed if necessary but you'll need to take some recautions
to avoid any chance of damaging the bags or your machine. To protect yours
machine, place the bags inside a sealed pillow case or laundry bag - just
in case a worn bag breaks in the wash you do not want the resin to get
free and possibly harm your machine. Wash the bages on delicate cycle and
cool temperature to minimize shrinkage and color fading. If you need truly
washable and waterproof bags we do offer them with synthetic cloth by
special order. Please contact us if interested.
Resin-filled Bags with synthetic cloth
Our three main bag models use cotton cloth on at least one side
in order to provide the best playing characteristics. However, we also
offer various synthetic cloth substitutes by special order. These bags
are more waterproof. Depending on the material chosen some are completely
waterproof and are truly washable. Each fabric has special cleaning
requirements. Please contact us for instructions.
