When the canvas of my banneton got mouldy, I pulled out the stitches and removed the canvas, boiled it in soapy water, gave it a mighty scrub, and sun it. Re-stitched and used.

Depends what the banneton is made of, but if it is true one, made from willow canes or the like, then you can use it without canvas. In fact that is how it is used all over Europe!

I regularly place my cane bannetons in the oven at about 120C for an hour, to dry them out and to sterilise them.
