Laundry bags are a safety precaution tool that enables soiled linen handlers to isolate, transport and clean washable dirty linen. When closed, the bag and its contents are placed in the washing machine – eliminating the physical handling of infected items.
Made from ecological PVA film, the water-soluble laundry bags 100% dissolve in hot and cold washing machines. They are an ideal solution for hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and other health-related industries.
The use of soluble laundry bags as integral liners in linen collection containers or independent storage bags for soiled items helps organizations isolate and store washable dirty linen before putting it into a washing machine, minimizing the risk of contamination. The bags are designed to dissolve at specific temperatures and therefore prevent contaminated items from being mixed with uncontaminated linen during the washing process.
Using these bags also prevents the need for operatives to directly handle contaminated bedding, towels, and garments when loading and unloading commercial washers. This minimizes their exposure to potential biohazards and allows them to comply with infection control guidelines.
The bags are made from transparent PVA film, which is biodegradable and non-toxic. They can be printed or embossed and are supplied in a range of sizes, with or without integral ties. The ties are manufactured from a high-strength woven polyester tape with an easy-to-grip draw tape top for tying the bag closed.
