Washing Bags

I love to work with plarn, that is, plastic yarn, made from plastic bags. The thing is, I use cloth bags when I shop (at least, as long as I don’t forget to bring them), so the majority of the bags I use for crafts come from recycling bins or friends’ collections, meaning…I don’t know what’s been in them.
