    Help! Goo Gone Tragedy with my Zest Shop Bag

    So yesterday I was using all my shop bags to schlep art project supplies for my students and leaked most of a bottle of Goo Gone (a household degreasing liquid) in the bottom of the bag. I've run it through the washing machine 3 times (twice with regular detergent and once with sport wash). The fabric still smells horrible (though a bit better than yesterday) and is slightly sticky to the touch. Is this a totally hopeless situation or is there a way to salvage it? Anyone out there have a similar experience? I am so sad.

    Eeeek!

    I'm sorry to hear that, trailrunner!

    I would avoid any further washes in a washing machine -- they are just too abrasive on the fabrics.

    I would stick to a mild dish soap, like Meyers and cool water, and just let the bag soak in a clean tub or utility sink.

    In terms of removing of removing odors, Mirazyme Odor Eliminator is supposed to work wonders.

    Good luck! Let us know if that does the trick!

    Thanks for the advice, maverick -I should have checked here first! I will try soaking and Mirazyme and report back. The odor in my car (where the spillage happened) is a bit better after airing it out on the way to work.
