Caldwell bag got wet...options.

Just got done ripping out the basement carpet....basement water leak...bad. my Caldwell bags got wet and the bases are hard as stone. Will this dry out or I need to dump it and refill? How do I empty them?

If me, I'd get rid of them and buy new ones.....They're not that expensive. Plus you don't want to run the risk of mold growing in or on the old ones.

Kitty litter works great also to fill a bag.
