....I washed my Golden Bee jacket!!!! ...with some prodding from my better half.  I'd forgot how white they look when they're clean!!! (except for a few spots of propolis) ...and how much better they smell, too!!! grin

Believe it or not, I have never washed any of my bee jackets ever.

After you wash them, they sure seem to get dirtter quicker the next time.  But the bees don't seem to bee so fussy.lol

Interesting thought, Joe.  It does seem to maybe not have the "plastic sheen" it had when new...maybe the washing scuffs up the material a bit.  Another interesting thing for my jacket is that I've never put beeswax on the zippers and they were always a little stubborn at times.  After washing it the zippers seem much smoother....  Smiley
