Care & Maintenance Cornhole Bag Tips For Beer Belly Bags

CLEANING YOUR BAGS

Dirty cornhole bags after the season’s never-ending tournaments in the backyard or on the road?  Since Beer Belly Bags are made with premium, all-weather materials such as plastic resin pellets, all it takes is a little bit of soapy water & TLC.

  • Before you take the time to make your bags squeaky clean, carefully inspect them for any tears. Any filling loss might not be worth the bath and you may just need to toss them out and replace with new bags.
  • Use hot, soapy water to clean your bags.  Dish detergent is best.
  • Take a soft brush to scrub each bag lightly.
  • Rinse the bags well to remove all of the soap.
  • Lay the bags out flat on a soft surface to air dry.

BREAKING-IN YOUR BAGS

We know that every cornhole player is different.  We would never tell you what to do but if you bought a set of cornhole bags from somewhere else that came out of the box, tight and heavy – let us offer you a couple tips on how to break-in your cornhole bags including our best tip: make a return, and buy some Beer Belly Bags which arrive ready to play right out of the box, no break-in needed!

However, those for those bags that need that thrift store feeling we recommend going old school:

  • Break-in bags by throwing the slick side down for 5 to 10 games.

*We do not recommend: boiling, throwing in the washer or dryer which can accelerate the break-in process, however it usually voids the warranty and may end in the tragedy of your bags or your appliances.

Need to adjust the speed of your play or are your bags too fast for your slow-hand slide trick shot? 

  • If the slick side is too fast, it will slow down after it’s a little dirty.
  • If the stick side is too sticky, it will slide more after it’s a little dirty.
  • If the stick side is too fast, you can wash the bags by hand and air dry.
  • Different board surfaces slide differently.   The humidity is a big factor in how fast or slow the bags will play.
  • If the bag is starting to feel too loose after playing a lot, hand washing and air drying the bags will tighten them up a bit.

ADDITIONAL BAG CARE

Because premium bags requires premium care

  •  Check all surfaces & edges of the boards you are playing on for anything that could snag the fibers of your bags.
    • A snag is usually where a fiber will shift out of place (a white streak on the fabric).  Snags are generally a cosmetic issue & not covered under any cornhole bag manufactuer’s warranty. 
    • It can become a hole when the filling starts to fall out.  Generally, this is still not covered under a manufactuer’s warranty from damage due to play.
  • It is also recommended that you do not play on rough surfaces such as concrete without placing a rug or piece of carpet under your boards to prevent damage like snags to your cornhole bags.
