You can hand wash clay towels in a bucket of water before putting them in the regular wash or hose them off on the patio or drive way.

Check David Hendley's website to see his bumper jack extruder. Could be adapted to a pneumatic one.

In Topic: Identify My Clay

Same craftsman makes these. Good for cooking or any concerns to consider when using them for cooking? No glaze applied just natural fired clay. Pots are slightly sandpapered and washed before use.
 
Love the looks of them and am now thinking to try to make all my tableware almost exactly like it.  Plates, bowls, cups, beer mugs, serving platters. I expect they might break, chip and easily get knife cuts a lot but If I can make them then I can just replace as they break or become damaged too much. Suggestions on the best way to proceed to do this would be appreciated.


Likely micaceous clay found in the southwest. These links may be of interest:
