You are not the only one to determine Blashak is not the best. To be fair, in the rush to produce and ship rice, they and
others may have become sloppy. I am using kimmels, and have found it to be clean . The bag is a weave, so unlike the gills
on the Blashak bags, it will drain water better if it becomes wet. When it comes right down to it, it is a crap shoot. I sell
bagged coal and brought my supply in during the early summer, before it got too crazy. Ties up some $$, but I suspect that
is why it is clean. Who knows?
