      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Does your rope need washing?

Recommended Posts

Need a mesh bag to protect your trusty-but-dusty rope from tangling and damage in a top-loading washing machine? I found an inexpensive, handy mesh bag on Amazon.com that worked well: The "Honey-Can-Do LBG-01142 Mesh Laundry Bag, White," $6.50, at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001F51ANU/ref=ox_ya_oh_product. I thought I'd pass it along to save others time and money. This bag is big enough to stack my 60-meter rope very loosely for wash-water circulation, porous enough to let wash water circulate freely, and small enough to keep the rope from tangling in my old top-loading washer.

I also daisy chain the rope and through it in with woolite. Works well for me. I have heard the rope brush works really well, but never tried it.

I do the same, but I think the rope brush would be best. I should get one...
