I did not know that. Thank you for pointing it out.

Quite a few dry laundry products will cheerfully eat holes in your skin...
I know lye was once used for a variety of purposes, including laundry.

That's one reason why I prefer bags I make myself out of cloth that can be washed: So that when the bags get dirty I can toss them into the washer. Those ones made from what seems to be woven paper are too hard to keep clean.

you would be surprised of the substances that are corrosive in moderate consentrations for example the dish "soap" we have for our dishmachine has a HUGE warning label on the barrel for its consentration corrosiveness -- Yeah one small drop will produce a chemical burn if not washed off NOW.

Cleaning products--ugh. Some concentrated laundry detergent once spilled on my brother's bedroom floor. It smeared the colored pattern of the linoleum. Granted that lino was older than either of us, but I was still appalled. Couldn't believe he was washing his clothes with that stuff!

Well, depending on the AGE of the lino... I once rented an apartment with lino of unknown age in the kitchen, and it smeared whenever it got wet... No caustic materials needed! Not wonderful, and impossible to keep clean.

She reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw once: "I'm not saying get rid of all the stupid people, just remove the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out."
The problem with that bumper sticker is it assumes the stupid peole are even bothering to READ the labels...

I find it unlikely. There is some other force keeping the stupid people alive...

Fate? I heard once that it protects fools, little children, and something else.

fools small children and drunks/stoneys I think. I remember that Steven King used that line in the novel version of IT in the modern day during the savage storm when IT is being "killed" below ground and Standpipe rolls onto its side and rolls down the hill as witnessed by one of the towns stonies.

There are other variations of this saying such as: God protects fools children and the USA

According to her the bags aren't 'real cloth' so can't ever go in the washer (what happened to hosing them down with the showerhead?).
Is the woman unfamiliar with the concept of "hand washing?"

And "real cloth?" I'm sorry, but WTF does she define as "real cloth?" Even my partner's linen undergarments for re-enactment have survived a trip through the washing machine...

She may mean non-woven? I prefer woven myself, because of this issue. Still doesn't address the quality of construction. But all other things being equal, woven is stronger than non-woven, and I HAVE had both fall apart under a too heavy load.

That said, my library book bag is a woven canvas that doesn't wash well, but I've reattached the handles well over 6 times, and its now time to re-enforce some of the seams, as they're coming undone. But I got it free with a gardening book well over 25 years ago!

And caustic is going in a plastic liner that I can throw away when I get home. Because, Jesus christ, I don't want that bumming around the house or my car!
