Re: Should I try to clean my own sails

I never had much luck with cleaning them myself. There are plenty of websites that give pointers though. One thing that seems to be a constant . . . no bleach! Our Canadian brother recommends it, and I'm sure it cleaned like crazy, but they say that the chlorine will degrade the fabric. I don't know, but I'd look into it before I put a $1500 sail into a tub of chlorox.
