A washing bag is an excellent investment for the environment and longevity of your garments. When using a washing bag, you both prevent microplastic from going into the ocean, but you also avoid your delicate clothes from getting stuck and ripped in the machine.
Use low temperatures
Low temperature is good for the environment when using the washing machine since it reduces energy consumption. A temperature of 30°c is often enough for most garments. Therefore, we recommend using a lower temperature for a regular wash.
The water should not be too hot when handwashing your garment - somewhere between 20-30°c.
Avoid the tumble dry
Tumble drying is highly energy-consuming and should be used as little as possible from an environmental standpoint. Moreover, no materials (except for down-garments) favor being tumble-dried. High temperatures in the tumble dry can cause shrinkage. Therefore, drying on a hanger or towel is preferred.
