How do you take care of your shopping bags?
I did ton of wash yesterday, including washing all of my cloth grocery bags. Now dried, I inspected them for wear, and found 2 that need some attention, so they now await me on one of my sewing machines. A minute to restitch these bags goes a long way towards extending their usefulness. Eventually, they may become patched or I double one inside the other (using 2 with holes/worn areas) and stitch them together to reinforce the material, creating one, strong bag. The bulk of my bags were given to me, freebies/promotions or I made them. I don't plan on buying any bags any time soon, so making these last as long as possible is my plan.
How often do you launder your bags? Do you mend/repair yours?
