Hey Tom Ė I had a tube of herring scent open up and get all over the inside of my bag. Itís oily stuff so straight water doesnít do a great job of cleaning it out would it be safe to use something like dishwashing liquid on the material? Is there something better?

I used baking soda and toothbrush on mine at the end of last season, mixed with a little dawn dish soap, worked awesome, got rid of most the smell of eel potion, bunker oil and rigged eel slime.

I soaked bag down, used baking soda and the soap mixed together and just scrubbed it in every direction, even removed some rust stains from the white material, then made sure to rinse it well, then just because I repeated the process.

Looks almost brand new and doesn't stink anymore

Just saw this post... not sure why it did not come up under the new posts button,,, hmm,,,,,

I would use a mild dish soap like dawn or something for the oily stuff... Dirt then a magic eraser......
