The picture to the left shows the game bags being washed at camp in a tub using cold creek water and camp dish soap.  With a couple of washes and rinse the bags came out nice and white.
Note: (Picture to the right) Bags hanging to dry by the lock loops using a stick. 
We used The Hanger - Item #0498 to hang game bags for drying.

Important: Do not hang the bags with meat content by the lock loops.
When returning home wash the bags thoroughly to remove remaining stains and or odors, this is a very important procedure when hunting in bear country as the odor from the last harvest may attract bear, this is also important in helping to extend the life of the Ultra Light Big Game Bags.    

The bag hanging to the right of the bag-less quarter had been wet, to show how water had wicked away from the meat to the outer surface of the bag, allowing the bag to dry in minutes, not hours or days.
We recommend hanging the quarters as shown in the picture to the right, then bag, with the top portion of the bags pull tight around the cord then wrap the cord around (see below) the fabric at the top of the bag, (such as a square knot) doing this will prevent insects from gaining access to the meat.

After nine days the bag were taken down to demonstrate the recommended method of hanging the meat quarters.
The bags proved to hold up very well.
For best in drying (meat glazing) we recommend hanging the bag loose around the meat this allows the leaves, grass, dirt, and other debris to fall to the bottom of the bag unlike the form fitting type bags that compress the debris in the meat as it dries causing more trimming and meat waste.
Note: Meat glazed! (this is accredited to the great breathability of the game bags custom fabric.
