laundry bag for delicates

 

Save money washing your delicate items by putting them in a mesh bag to protect them from some of the abrasion of the washing process.  If you don't have a mesh bag, recycle an old pillowcase.  This thrift friendly item will still let water in, while protecting your clothing.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some more frugal tips to save money on bags for washing delicates.

 

- Make your own bag for washing delicates.  Any mesh type fabric will work.  You don't have to insert a zipper.  Use iron on velcro or snaps to close it.
 
- Wash your most delicate items by hand to make them last longer.
 
- Always use special soap when washing delicate items.
