Dumb question sorry

I bought some purigen to use in my XP3 and i was wondering if it is ok to use womans stockings as a bag to put it in. I tried a regular bag but the holes are to big and the purigen made a mess on my floor.

Doesn't sound like a dumb question to me! Sounds like a pretty great idea!

I would think that would be fine enough for the Purigen beads... it has to be a really fine mesh or yeah... you end up with a mess.

Only issue I can possible see is if you want to regenerate it without taking it out of the stocking. Not sure what bleach will do to the material - if it'd just eat it away, or degrade it enough to cause it to burst the next time you put it in your cannister. Might want to do a test run with an empty stocking in a 1:1 bleach/water solution to see what happens...

Let us know!
