    Hmm, not sure why it would hurt them. If nothing else, it will make them smell nice and likely keep away some bugs. I'm interested in other people's answers as well David. Great question! :thumbup:

    I've put in a "used" sheet was afraid a new one is to oily/greasy and may leave residue on material. I put one or two "used" in when I get a quilt top from a smoker and puff up bag and twist tie before I LA it!!

    Don't know why you would need it but...good idea. I have some in those 1 gallon and bigger ones that are new but I am so hooked on the project boxes from JOann's too. The only way I would not use them if it was a project for someone else as many have allergies to different smells. I do this when I get things in the mail from smokers. LOL Works every time. That and fabreeze spray. I will have to watch and see how others feel. Thanks for the great post, fella.:):):)

    Hubby and I smoke and I cook with onions and garlic a lot but never thought about it stinking up the quilting since it's in a separate room and we only do these things in the kitchen. If it's in a different room I don't see a problem but I'm sure if you use a used one it would be fine but I'd worry a bit about a fresh one. I prewash all my fabric and zip lock them, they stay fresh for years!!
