Burlap Plant Covers. These modern decorative plant bags are an easy way to cover up those boring nursery pots. Or add a bit of boho vibe into your plant space. Burlap is essentially a woven fabric made from jute. It's sturdy, natural and eco friendly.  But how would you clean these eco friendly covers if needed? Check out our care tips below.
The most important thing to remember is DO NOT machine wash burlap plant covers. Even though burlap is a sturdy material, combined with excessive water is can become brittle and fall apart.

Take your white cloth and add a small drop of detergent on it.
Dip the cloth with detergent in some water to get it damp but do not soak it. You should notice a very slight lather.

Then gently begin to dab the area with the cloth to remove the dirt. You should start to see the dirt lift up. Dab the inside area of the bag if needed.
Do not rub or scrub the area as it could damage the fiber.
