Washing Bag

CHF 32.90

Did you know a large portion of our clothing contains synthetic materials? The Guppyfriend washing bag is the first pragmatic solution that prevents microplastic fibres from entering waterways and oceans through the washing of synthetic textiles. The broken fibres instead collect in the corners of the washing bag and can be easily removed and disposed of after washing. According to the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, an average of 86% fewer fibres fromsynthetic clothing break when washed with the washing bag.

Instructions for use

· Fill to about ⅔ full so that the textiles can easily move around in the bag

· Add other (non-synthetic) garments or a second filled Guppyfriend to avoid imbalance

· Wash at 40°C maximum

· Ideally use liquid and natural detergents without synthetics

· Remove coarse dirt and pet hair before washing

· Slide the zipper into the "garage" provided at the end of the zipper

Please avoid:

· Rinsing under running water - so that the collected microplastic fibres are not washed into the environment

· Washing sharp-edged objects - to avoid damaging the material

· Ironing - this can also damage the material (the crumpled surface is not a problem)

· Use in the tumble dryer - broken fibres can get out of the bag

· Hanging/drying in direct sunlight to avoid damaging the material
