Somehow I don’t think cloth/canvas is going to be any better to clean than slick plastic. Actually, no, it’s worse. Just that if you have cloth it is “biodegradable” whereas plastic is not.
re: “That’s why I have cloth reusable bags, ones I can clean off with soap and water in a sink.”
The ONLY way to make a cloth bag (with ground beef blood-staining) as clean as a new plastic bag right “off the roll” is to use an AUTOCLAVE ...
(Autoclaves are used in medical applications to perform sterilization.)
Tests on such bags are showing that bacteria is rampant on & in them.
IF they ban them where I live, I will switch to using kitchen trash bags & I will enter the stores with such bags.
I’d much rather go buy a whole box of plastic grocery bags and bring my own, then dispose of them.
We finally got out of the useless habit of recycling. The city changed their trash p9licy of charging for trash bags and not for recycling.
But, I steadfastly refused to ever wash my garbage like empty cans.
Curbside recycling is an absolute waste of time and resources. It’s nice to see that many of my neighbors have taken my lead.
