Drawstring Cotton Bread Loaf Storage Bag - Large Size 5 "Brilliant" Ms Renall 06 December 2017 I have just brought new bags as my current ones are now over 3 years old and starting to fade and wear out. I have used them constantly over this time as we always make our own bread. They get washed in the washing machine on a regular basis and hung up to dry. No special treatment. They are well worth the small cost.
