Why Use Mesh Laundry Bags?

If you’re not yet sold on the benefits of using mesh laundry bags, then understanding how they work might change your mind. This post covers how laundry bags work, the various ways to use them, and the different types of bags available. First, let’s understand how laundry bags work.

How They Work.

Mesh laundry bags work by providing a protective layer between the items contained within it and other items in the washer.

The Bag.

They’re made from a porous mesh material that allows water and soap suds to pass through while providing a barrier to other articles. You place your items inside, secure them with the attached closure device, then place the bag into the washer.


The Laundree Co’s mesh bags are available in the following sizes: Large Bags (16" x 20") in white and black, Medium Bag (12" x 16") in white and (6”x 6”) Double Layered Round Bags in white and black.

Ways To Use Laundry Bags.

The primary use for mesh laundry bags is to protect delicate fabrics in the wash. Placing items inside a mesh bag prevents them from getting damaged, especially if you have a mixed laundry load.Another way to use them is to separate certain articles of clothing from the rest of the laundry. For example, sporting wear that contains Velcro straps could pull threads from delicate garments.You can also use laundry bags to prevent items from getting misplaced in the washer. For example, keeping socks together or to prevent mixing articles with another person’s clothing.Finally, mesh bags can be used to carry items that benefit from aeration – such as sporting equipment or gym clothes.

Types of Laundry Bags.

Laundry bags differ with the type of closures, mesh and shapes. There are currently 2 types of bags/mesh available through the Laundree co and all employ the zipper closure with a tab. The zipper closure is designed for ease of use. Simply place the items inside and then zip shut the laundry bag and tuck under the tab.

Other Uses.

Laundry mesh bags are great travel organizers. You can use them to keep all your socks, unmentionables and smaller items together when traveling. They are great to separate the dirty items from the clean items in your luggage. They also serve the function of holding all your dirty items for when you return home. Simply toss the bag into the wash and you're ready to go.

Given my detailed breakdown of mesh wash bags and why you would use them should make it easier to understand how to incorporate them into each individual's lifestyle. We hope that this explains why you should immediately start using laundry wash bags!
