Dissolvabag - Water Soluble Bags

Our "DissolvaBag" water soluble laundry bags are a non-toxic, compostable bag that breaks down in water and when disposed of, leaves only harmless components with very little impact on the environment. These soluble bags have been formally tested and approved by the National Health Service and are now in use every day in NHS hospitals throughout the United Kingdom. 

The dissolvable laundry bags are designed to expertly cope with the increasing demand for cost effective solutions for infection control and the safe containment, and transportation of contaminated laundry from the point removal from beds and bathrooms right through to the washing machine.

DissolvaBag water soluble laundry bags are:

  • High quality, reliable, strong and highly puncture resistant
  • Conform to the NHS Executive guidelines, HSG (95) 18 - Hospital Laundry Arrangements for Used and Infected Linen
  • 100% water soluble and biodegradeable
  • For use in Industrial Washing Machines and Industrial cleaning processes

How do water soluble laundry bags work?

Our DissolvaBag solution allows a healthcare worker to remove and bag infected or contaminated linen and towels quickly and easily, the bags are sealed and then no contact with the infected fabric is required until the clean laundry is removed from the washing machine, the laundry is washed still in the bag. This allows for transportation and removes the risk of cross-infection to laundry personel and healthcare teams involved in the cleaning process. The bags, also referred to as alginate bags, completely vanish in the washing process and the remaining elements found in the waste water are completely harmless to the environment. Although these bags are most often purchased with the red tint and referred to as red laundy bags, we can also supply with an orange tint or clear to help you with your infection control organisational processes.

As Water soluble laundry bags manufacturers we ensure that the highest levels of quality assurance and service are maintained throughout the manufacturing process, resulting in the best possible customer experience for all of our clients. As a polythene supplier to the NHS we audit all of our processes, quality checks and materials to deliver the gold standard of laundry bags.

Alignate laundry bags are also an essential resource for care homes as they work to control infection and protect their care workers.
