From The Manufacturer
Whether you’re a college student who has to transport your laundry to the dorm washer or take it home to mom; or you live in an apartment and want to drop your laundry off at the laundromat, you have to get it there without losing anything. That’s why this heavy duty nylon laundry bag will work for you. It’s made of 100 percent breathable nylon, and holds up to three loads of laundry (approximately 60 pounds). The nylon laundry bag is a brightly colored and attractive navy blue. Its nylon construction helps to protect your clothes from the elements and easily transport your laundry. And just as important, its durability makes it rip- and tear-resistant. It also has a locking drawstring closure so you never have to worry that it will open and spill out your personal items. Further, these large laundry bags are machine washable, so you can reuse it over and over again, just adding it to the laundry when it seems to be getting a little dirty. It’s an ideal bag for college, dorm and apartment dwellers or anyone who prefers a bag to a laundry basket.

An Overview On Laundry Bags
Laundry bags are a handy invention that help folks tackle their wash with ease. In addition to keeping socks from magically disappearing during a cycle in the dryer, these bags protect undergarments with hooks and straps from getting snagged during washing and drying. Laundry bags can be used to transport laundry to a laundromat or to collect soiled garments during a vacation.
If you’d like to give laundry bags a try, there are a few things you’ll want to be on the look out for as you shop. Start by examining the fabric the laundry bag is made out of. Ideally, it should be constructed out of a mesh material that is see-through. This fabric is washable and allows users to clearly see which laundry items are in the bag. This is especially helpful when traveling and going through airport security.
You may opt for a bag that isn’t made of mesh, like the HOMEST Travel Laundry Bag, 2-Pack. This bag is designed specifically for travel. It folds up small, so you can toss it in your suitcase. While you’re away, you place your dirty laundry in the bag. The bag expands as you add to it and has a drawstring for closing the bag once it’s full.
Next, make sure that your laundry bag set comes with bags in different sizes. You’ll find some sets come in up to four sizes, often with colored zippers that identify the size. This way, you have smaller bags for your socks and undergarments and larger bags for your blouses.
Pay attention to how the laundry bags close. Some bags use zippers. Since zippers can get caught on other clothing in the washing machine, you’ll need a bag with a fold-over top to cover up the zipper.
Consider any additional uses you may want the laundry bags to perform. For example, some laundry bags or laundry cubes actually have handles that make them portable. They are excellent for carrying to the laundromat or for organizing clothing to fit in a suitcase. You may even find a set that comes with a special bag for storing your digital devices. These bags are waterproof, so your devices are safe from splashes if you’re visiting a beach or lake resort.
DWYM Fun Fact
It may surprise you to learn that in America, an estimated 660,000,000 loads of laundry are washed each and every week. Laundry bags certainly help make the task a bit easier. In fact, back in the early days when men sailed the seas for travel and exploration, they cleaned their clothing by tossing soiled laundry in bags and dragging them behind the ship. They simply let the sea do all the cleaning for them.
Ancient Romans actually washed their clothing using human urine. Urine contains ammonia, which is effective against removing stains and dissolving dirt and grease.
The first washing machine that was marketed heavily across the United States had a name. It was called Thor — just like Thor, the Norse god, played by Chris Hemsworth in all of the popular Marvel comic movies.
The Laundry Bag Buying Guide
- Always refer to the product label for cleaning instructions. Although some laundry bags are safe to toss in your washing machine, they are not recommended for the high heat setting in your dryer. Waterproof designs may only require a wipe down with a soft soapy sponge instead of being fully submerged in a washing machine full of water.
- Never overfill your laundry bag before washing. In order for the clothes to get clean, they need to have space to move around.
- Avoid using laundry bags with drawstrings in the washing machine. The strings can get caught and cause damage to parts of your washer or to any other clothes in the wash at the time.
- To make sorting clothing in your laundry room easier, consider hanging S hooks from your laundry room shelving and placing the mesh bags on the hooks. You can even line them up by size.
- Consider a few alternative uses for your mesh laundry bags. Use them to store beach, pool and bath toys. The bags are also excellent at keeping bugs away from your food when you’re getting ready for a picnic. Simply place the bowl of food inside the bag and zip it up until you’re ready to serve it. Mesh laundry bags are also capable of holding Legos when the original packaging breaks and your kids’ sports gear in between games and practices.
- When comparing laundry bag prices, it is important to consider the material the bags are made out of and how many bags you’re getting in each set. Bags made entirely of mesh are the most inexpensive. You’ll also find sets with a higher number of pieces cost more than sets that have just one or two bags. It’s best to divide the total sales price by the number of laundry bags in the set to get the price per bag. Then you’ll be able to use that figure to determine which set is the best deal.
