A laundry bag for lingerie, is it mandatory?
is often made with thinner and fragile fabrics than the rest of the linen. Hence the idea of putting them in a washing bag
to protect them from possible deterioration: by separating them in a light net, the action of the washing machine is softened. But is it necessary to use a pouch every time you wash?
At Gilsa Paris, our lingerie solutions
are designed to be as discreet as possible. Our ranges of thongs, panties, shorts and bras
have no seams, and blend on your skin without ever getting noticed. But to keep their shape and maintain their shades, using a washing bag
every time they go through the machine is an essential gesture
In fact, if you do not protect your underwear when washing, the risk is that your lingerie will deteriorate faster by losing its elasticity, shape and color. The bag is an effective barrier that protects the fibre of underwear
and prevents its alteration. In addition, the washing pouch
prevents your bras from getting tangled with clothes, or even hooks from getting caught in the walls of the machine. So you are sure that your undersides will not be distorted.
In short, by separating your delicate underwear
from the rest of the linen, you are doing a proud service to your lingerie
The laundry bag for underwear, an eco-friendly accessory
If we talk a lot about ecology in conversations about agriculture, transport or electricity, it is rarely mentioned about washing clothes in the machine. And if this is the case, it is often to talk about the significant water consumption of each wash cycle. Yet there is another problem related to the washing machine: that of micro-particles. Invisible to the naked eye, these tiny elements escape from synthetic fabrics with each wash. The result: waste is thrown into the water every time you wash your stuff.
This is why the wash bag
is a particularly environmentally friendly
accessory: thanks to it, micro-particles are retained, preventing them from being spilled into the oceans. So you make two strokes with one stone: not only do your clothes last longer,
but the water that results from washing is less polluted, and can continue its cycle without fear.
