tights

Post by far9410 » Mon Nov 17, 2014 9:32 pm

Hi Im using some pellets at the moment, filtering em out is not perfect, been using a hop mesh bag, its not bad but I would like something better. Do you think nylon tights would work? would they stand boiling?

How will you be cleaning and strelizing the tights?
I'm not sure if tights can be boiled, without affecting there shape / texture

Yes Dennis, but I bet you prefer fishnets, which aren't very successful for this! :|

Aren't they nylon? Is that food safe?

Hi I have a copper pipe filter, which works fine for leaf, so when using pellets I use a hop bag
