Hi all, I've been using some cotton cloths I had around the house to apply neatsfoot oil and Aussie Finish and generally buff my work. I haven't gotten there yet, but I know you can also use cloths to apply dye. So... I was wondering, what do you guys do when these cloths get dirty? Ditch them and start anew or does anybody toss them in the washer and if so, what are you using to clean them? Seems like kind of a waste to toss them, but I don't want to contaminate one project with something leftover from another. Also, I'm assuming you have different cloths for different products/types of products. How do you split them up? One per product or one per type of product (e.g., alcohol based dyes vs. finishes vs. oils)? Thanks!
Greetings, I'm thinking of making a cooking apron, which is made out of denim or canvas fabric, and line the bottom skirt of the apron with a 5 or 6 inches piece of leather. This piece of leather will run the whole width of the apron and serves as a decorative touch. Now my question is if I use pig hide as the leather of choice, can the apron be machine or hand wash? Pig hide is tougher than cow hide so I thought that maybe it can withstand the washing process. I am new to leathercraft and I'm trying to make 3 of these as Christmas presents so I would appreciate any pointers I can get. Thanks for your time, Quang
