Guppyfriend Washing Bag to Help Reduce Microfibres

The Guppyfriend washing bag is a step towards reducing microfibre pollution. It works by capturing microfibres off clothes. Simply wash your synthetic clothes in the washbag provided and it helps to reduce fibres by reducing fibre breakage of the clothes and by capturing microfibres in the seams of the bag. Its soft surface results in fewer fiber losses and thus helps your garments last longer.

Microfibres are tiny and barely visible to the naked eye. It may take quite a few washes to catch microfibres and you're likely to see them in the upper seams first. Pull those out and dispose of them reponsibly in general waste keeping them out of our waterways. 

Apart from the zipper the bag is entirely made of Polyamide 6.6. The material is untreated, undyed, and does not contain any additives.

Size: 50 x 74 cm

 

Testing 

The bag was tested for a period of three years by scientific institutes, universities, representatives of the outdoor, and fashion, industry and retailers. Guppyfriend have worked with the following scientific and independent institutes: German Textile Research Institute, DTNW Fraunhofer Institut UMSICHT University of California in Santa Barbara as part of a Patagonia research program.

Results

The Guppyfriend washing bag reduces fiber loss during washing in two ways:

  1. The Guppyfriend Washing Bag reduces the amount of breaking fibers significantly. The Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT has confirmed an average amount of a) 79% for partly synthetic clothes, b) 86% from completely synthetic textiles. The lifetime of the apparel is extended.
  2. Fibrous residues and lints caused by washing are retained by the Guppyfriend and therefore do not pollute the waste water. The determined fiber retention capacity in all test was above 90%, mostly close to 100%. Nanoparticles, like production residues, often found on cheaper textiles can not be retained by the Guppyfriend Washing Bag.

 

Further Test Results

  • No toxic additives or harmful substances where found on the product.
  • Even after 50 washing cycles the bag and all seams are intact (ISO 6330). The bag itself does not lose any synthetic fibers (the Guppyfriend Washing Bag can be used for more than the tested 50 washing cycles when applied correctly)
  • Cleanliness after washing: blood, ketchup and chocolate could be washed out properly, the washing degree towards skin fat and clay is sufficient.
  • The amount of fibers that are found in the bag depends on washing conditions and clothing itself

 

Notes on Using The Guppyfriend

  • Do not put the bag into the tumble dryer
  • Do not rinse under running water
  • Wash only clothes of similar colours together in the bag
  • Anything sharp may harm the material of the bag
  • Do not iron (the crumpled surface is not a problem)
  • Use only liquid detergents
  • Do not dry in the sun
  • Remove coarse dirt and animal hair before washing

 

Made in China. Packaged in a kraft cardboard box. 

 

 

(GUPPYFRIEND)

Wash your synthetic clothing in the Guppyfriend in the washing machine. You can wash your natural fibre clothing outside of the Guppyfriend. 

When washing nothing but the Guppyfriend Washing Bag, certain kinds of washing machines may become unbalanced during the spin cycle. To prevent damage, it automatically stops spinning or reduces the speed. To avoid that, please add natural textiles or a second Guppyfriend Washing Bag to your laundry load.
