Mesh Laundry Bag Typical Sizes

by | | 0 comment(s)

Mesh bags are a fantastic tool for laundering clothing. Whether in large commercial facilities, medium sized laundromats/dry cleaners or just for regular everyday household use, mesh bags can be used to wash laundry, linens and other items within the bag itself. This method allows clothes to be separated and protected during the washing and drying cycle.

First of all, it is important to find a good quality mesh laundry bag to begin with. Look for a company that offers a commercial grade type of mesh and closure; this grade of laundry bag can even be used for household use. The commercial grade laundry bag will have improved functionality and increased durability.

Before bag sizing is discussed, the other option to consider is a drawstring or zipper closure. It is really a matter of preference. The zipper is convenient and prevents tangling of the drawstring but tends to be the weak link of the bag in terms of breaking or not working over longer periods of time. The drawstring, particularly if it comes with a high quality closure such as a barrel lock, tends to last a bit longer but there is the concern of tangling in the washing drying cycle. (The tangling of the cord can be reduced simply by cinching the barrel lock closed but not too tight and then inserting the excess cord into the small opening and then cinching the bag totally closed).
