My dictionary says that this expression means to let bygones be bygones, but also says that pelillos are short hairs. What is the literal meaning in English of "echar pelillos a la mar"?

    "Echar pelillos a la mar" is an expression that has no sens with its literal meaning... The literal meaning is: to throw short hairs to the sea. lol. This is a non-sense meaning... but as expression it means what you said: to let bygones be bygones.
