    Smile Tall yarn sack?

    Does any use these as laundry sacs? They look like they would work well.


    Just did a search some interesting ideas in these threads for laundry bags

    I think it is an excellent idea, especially to separate delicates from cotton laundry, which, in my case, can be handled by the husband unit without much worry.

    Because it is washable it can hold liquid detergent in a small bottle or some powdered one in a big yogurt cup and a dryer ball or two plus mesh zipper bag(s) and a zippered pillow protector for delicates.

    PS: I am an expert at laundromat use, our first place accepted cats but had no laundry facility, hence the knowledge above.

    I've used a tall stuff sack for a combo shoe bag/laundry bag for a few months now.

    I have size 42/really wide women's US 11 feet, and wear a men's 10.5 hiking boot. All fit in the stuff sack with lengthwise room to spare - the hikers take a bag for each shoe.

    I heartily recommend having stuff sacks in both colors, since it's a lot easier to tell what's dirty his or hers if you pack mixed bags. Or even tell yellow bag-right foot- to yourself when you're jet lagged but want to get going up that alpine trail!

    Dyneema also works if you have to presoak stains out of something and you've run out of plastic bags. Just put it on a waterproof surface. Worried about chemical damage to the Dyneema? For kicks, go to the Dyneema website. Look at the stuff that WON'T hurt it. If it's solvent impervious, good past Alaska-cold and still good to more-than-kill-you-twice as hot as Death Valley, a little stain remover soaking on the fabric won't bother it at all.
