When washing synthetic garments, tiny plastic fibers are released into the environment. The GuppyFriend Washing Bag protects garments and reduces shedding while filtering out and collecting the fibers that do break, preventing them from entering nature. Simply place any garments in there and wash away. But remember that this is only an interim solution, the best way to stop micro plastics pollution is to avoid synthetic materials in the first place.
Put synthetic textiles into the washing bag, fill to about 2/3 full.
Close the washing bag and put it in the washing machine.
Add other, non-synthetic textiles or a second washing bag, and wash as usual
After wash, take the textiles out of the bag while still wet
Remove the collected fibers from the inside of the bag by hand and dispose properly
Rinsing under running water - so that the collected micro plastic fibres are not washed into the environment
Washing sharp-edged objects - to avoid damaging the material
Ironing - this can also damage the material (the crumpled surface is not a problem)
Use in the tumble dryer - broken fibres can get out of the bag
Hang/dry in direct sunlight - to avoid damaging the material
