The GUPPYFRIEND washing bag is the first practical way to prevent microfibres from entering into rivers and oceans. Its soft surface results in fewer fibre losses and thus helps your garments last longer. Those microfibres that break during washing are captured inside the bag.
- material: polyamid 6.6 untreated
- size: 50 x 74 cm /19,7”x 29,1”
With each wash, countless plastic fibers from synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans. The Guppyfriend washing bag filters out the tiniest microfibres released from textiles during washing. The self-cleaning fabric bag is made of a specially designed micro-filter material. Simply collect the fibres after each wash and dispose of them.
Love my guppy bag, however this is my second as using one puts my washing machine out of balance (which makes it loud and also stops it spinning properly). I bought a second to even it out in the machine
Not sure if it works, haven't found any fibres in the bag yet after washing, maybe because most synthetic fibered clothes I have are already pretty old and I have washed them many times already? I don't know. Otherwise it will just be a very good, but still overpriced, laundry bag.
I love it so much I’ve ordered a second one. We seem to have a surprising amount of synthetics and with the family back from uni, we really need two to keep up with the volume!
The bag has been no problem, and appears to be well made, with the exception of the zip, which could be MUCH more robust. Considering it's flimsier than a zip you'd find on a coat, and it makes regular trips in the washing machine every day (family of four), it's almost no surprise that the zip pull has now broken completely, meaning it's incredibly difficult to zip the bag up or down, and therefore compromises the bag;s ability to keep plastic particles contained inside. Considering the bag came to nearly £30 and we've only been using it for less than half a year, it's a bit disappointing that we now can't really use it any more after that short amount of time.
When I first saw the price, I was in doubt. But I'm so happy I bought this. It's way bigger than I thought so a lot fits inside and it came with more clever washing tipps. I even share it with a friend because we both don't wash that often and it's very doable :) It also made me pay more attention to the fabric my clothes have. Very very satisfied!
