As a farmer, you might have to take some time to break down your net-wrap silage after it is harvested. It makes sense for you to know how to clean the film before you take the time to dispose of it properly.
First of all, you’ll need to get yourself a bucket or a pan that will fit into the opening of your silage. Next, you need to get some soap and warm water. You don’t want to use hot water, or it could damage the film.
If you choose dish soap, you can use the same kind of soap that you would use with vegetables. Using the same type of soap is not suitable for the film though, because there are too many chemicals in it that can affect the texture and quality of the final product.
You also don’t want to use a detergent that will get into the pores of the Net-wrap Silage Film. You will be able to use a regular dishwashing detergent if you choose that, but make sure that you use a neutral pH detergent that won’t change the pH balance of the film.
There are two methods that you can perform in washing the net-wrap silage after you harvest it. The best approach is to use a pressure washer on high pressure. It will take off a large chunk of the film, but the process also removes some nutrients from the film.
Second, you can put the film into a washing machine with warm water and hand soap. This method is much gentler, but it leaves the film soft and wet.
Either way, you need to scrub away the film using a piece of plastic, a piece of paper, or a towel with a lot of elbow grease. The longer you work at it, the harder the film will be to get off.
When you’re finished, you need to rinse the film with water. Make sure that you rinse it very thoroughly because the residue from the washing machine could set on the film and prevent you from being able to use it again.
Rinse the film under cold water, and let it dry. It is one step that you will want to skip if you’re going to use it for other purposes.
If you want to get the Net-wrap Silage Film off, you can use some soap. However, this is a messy way to remove the film, so be sure that you take the time to thoroughly wash the film before you apply it to the soil.
Your net wrapped silage has a protective coating on it that can be removed with a citrus-based citrus cleaner. Be sure that you use something with an acid content since the pH balance in your soil will go into trouble if the acid in the cleaner gets into the soil.
By using a citrus cleaner that contains citric acid, you can get your soil to be the same pH as the silkworm silk that you are about to harvest. When you apply the cleaner to the surface of the silage film, you should make sure that you do it gently.
