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.

Get a Guppy Friend!

A great product for helping stop microfibres enter the water system when washing fleeces, polyester garments etc. Very happy with my 2 bags, they're a good size, dry quickly and help the environment.

A bit dissapointed

Product size is great, and it's very easy to use... But unfortunately, my clothes came out soaking wet, (after a regular wash and spin cycle), and I could not find any lint in the bag. So I'm not sure if it did it's job. Will try again tomorrow with the kid's clothes, and I'm hopeful!!
I washed with cold water, I wonder if that's the reason, why I did not get any micro waste this time 🙈

Hi Maria, Thanks for leaving a review for the Guppy bag! I'm sorry to hear you weren't totally happy with your first use of the bag and that your items came out so wet! I wouldn't be too concerned that you didn't see any fibres on your first wash, Guppy state that 'compared to washing without the Guppyfriend Washing Bag, 86% fewer fibers shed from synthetic textiles. The Guppyfriend Washing Bag was designed to reduce microfiber loss at the source.' They also state that they are a little hard to spot, but will collect over time mostly in the seams and upper corners, so you should start to see the fibres that are being caught after a few washes. They have a few tips on their website that may be worth looking at to hopefully make it easier to use! https://guppyfriend.com/en/ Best, Liv xx

Doesnt hold enough....

I wanted to love this product but its not big enough really. I wanted it for reusable nappies and other man made fibre items but my nappies came out sopping wet and there wasn't many in. Great idea but I would want a bigger one. Works well if you only have a few items. But I have to say I've not seen any lint in the bag.

Hi Noo, Thanks for leaving a review for the Guppy bag! I'm sorry to hear you're not finding this to be big enough for all of the things you needed to wash in it! At the moment Guppy only make the one size bag unfortunately, they say that they may offer other sizes in the future but that the current size is more efficient than a larger one would be a larger one would cause the clothes to rub together more and lose more fibres. I hope you're able to find the Guppy bag useful in future but I'm sorry it wasn't quite right for you at the moment! Liv xx
