These mesh washbags can help keep the rubbish out of your washing machine when you clean your fleece bedding.
Made from nylon, with a simple drawstring closure, these bags will trap most of the hair, hayseeds, grass, or poops that you don’t manage to brush off the fleece before washing.
Of course, they will not stop all the bits getting into your machine, they will reduce it.
HOW TO USE THE WASHBAGS:
For best results, always try and remove as much hay, poop and hair from the items being washed, before placing them into the washing bag. A good stiff dustpan brush works a treat, rubber mitts, or vacuum cleaning works too.
Smaller items can be damaged by normal washing – the bags will ensure they do not get tangled during the cycle.
The principle is the same as those little mesh bags you have for washing delicate items such as bras and lace lingerie, the mesh bag prevents them getting snagged and ripped during the wash cycle with other bigger items.
The bags are 80cm tall and 60cm wide, big enough to stash loads of stuff in – but the secret to making the bags work, is not to load them with too much. You want the wash water/soap to be able to flow freely thru the bag, and to rinse away the dirt.
NOTE: An overloaded wash bag will simply be a giant soggy cloth ball, it may cause your machine to become unbalanced, and the yucky stuff in the middle will not get clean. I have done a load in my 8kg machine with a bag of smaller items, plus two medium sized liners 100X50CM – it all washed fine together.
AFTER WASHING: Take the mesh washbag out of the machine and head outside to the clothesline. Release the toggle and open the bag. Remove the items and peg onto the line as usual.
If you do notice any hair or bits of rubbish on the items, brush it off with a dustpan brush or bristle brush – these items actually brush better when damp than when dry.
If there is hair and rubbish inside the mesh bag when empty – to clean it, simply turn it inside out and give it a shake into the garden. Peg it on the line to dry ready for next washing day.
Washing soft toys, fabric pet beds and blankets, pet hammocks, never lose another sock!

Price $ 6.00 each or buy two for $9.96 plus postage.
POSTAGE RATES: I have been asked why the cost to mail these is $7.95 (parcel post) and not $2.00 if sent as a letter. – It’s simple, the bags have a plastic toggle to close them, thus this part of the bag is too fat to fit through the letter slot scale at the post office. Thus they are considered to be a SMALL PARCEL not as a letter.
