“One Dirty Little Secret To Always Choose
The Perfect Lingerie Bag For Laundry!”
Karol González here.
As we already stated, doing your laundry with wash bags is a great way to increase the life span of your lingerie.
It not only adds an additional layer of protection to your delicates, but also prevents tangles, snags and tears for all types of garments.
Choosing the right bag is extremely important though.
To help you do just that, this post and the next two will give you a broad introduction to assessing the quality of lingerie bags.
You need to be able to tell the difference between a durable, well-crafted bag and one that looks decent but won’t last long.
We are going to show you which attributes distinguish high-quality wash bags from low-quality ones, and to help you recognize these attributes when you’re shopping yours.
- We want our wash bags to be durable, to last more than a couple of washes.
- We want sturdy bags that we can toss into the washer and dryer without having to worry about anything.
- We want our delicates to keep the same shape they had when we bought them.
- And we don’t want stuck or broken zippers, rusted parts, ripped seams, holes in the fabric or bags completely falling apart.
Now, I want you to pay undivided attention to the following criteria and keep it in mind all the time when you need to purchase lingerie laundry bags.[/text_block]
No matter how well-crafted the seams are, a bag made from a flimsy thin fabric is never going to last long.
When checking the fabric of a wash bag you need to look out for the one crucial factor: its thickness.
Even thought it may cost a bit more, you should always look for bags made of thicker mesh fabrics for a simple reason: “superior preservation of your intimate wardrobe”.[/text_block]
Oh my gosh… I sounded like a geek! Sorry for that.
In simple terms, the thicker the mesh is the more protected your delicates will be.
Only choose mesh bags that are double-layered and boast a dense weave, just as the fabric on the picture.
The general rule of thumb is that the tighter the weave, the better the quality.
Thicker bags (180 grams is ideal) are longer lasting, as they withstand rigorous, repeated use without fraying or developing holes.
These bags are commonly made from 100% polyester material.
It is pretty straightforward to recognize wash bags made with thicker fabrics, they are soft and plush in texture.
So, the next time you’re in front of a mesh bag for laundry, feel it![/text_block]
