I just toss them inside out in the washing machine on high temp. No bleach or any additives. Always come out nice and clean.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Maybe we're both crazy.... lol jk. But honestly, why would anyone not use a washer to clean their filter socks? Technology exists to make life easier...

It only seems crazy because our significant others would have a crap attack!!! I know mine would... Besides that I don't see how anyone could win that argument... "But honey, it is sanitary." Lol.

Haha true! Fish poop versus human poop. It's all the same, more or less.

I wash mine once inside out on the whitest whites selection on my front loader then with a cup of bleach then I do this again without the bleach then again,but like Carey I save up about ten so I don't have to do this often....

Have you tried washing in the washer without the bleach? How clean are they?

Now consider the bleach. It doesn't actually clean It just removes all color turns everything white. Hides the fact that there is still crap in the sock.

Peroxide on the other hand breaks down the stuff in the sucks so it just washes off/away. Socks still come out white but not because it is bleached white but because it is actually clean.
