Re: Cleaning beesuits
Uhhg. After wearing my suit all summer, it has the delightful aroma associated with goldenrod honey as it cures. I wash my jacket once or twice a year in hot water, soap, and ammonia. I wash my gloves more often to get the pheromones off. Wash while wearing with a little dish soap, rinse thoroughly and remove to allow to dry. Seems to work but does not remove the propolis or stains.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
