Wash bag for hammocks?

Post by ClaireCat » Sun May 01, 2011 11:13 am

I remember seeing a post on here somewhere but I've been looking for about half an hour now and cant find it!

I need a bag to wash my rat stuff in. The pillowase just isnt cutting it anymore and my washing machine is ending up in a bit of a mess from dirty boy rat stuff!

I need a decent bag to wash them in and I remember people saying they used some sort of drawstring bag for washing horse stuff?

I have a recollection of that. Wasn't it Mistresssadako who posted about it?

i sewed a zip into a pillow case and use that, the only problem is the hammocks although clean, keep the hair on them so you have to shake well or get a lint roller on them!

Hammocy Hammocks sell drawstring washbags, although they aren't the horse ones.

Thats the one!

I've tried tying a knot in a pillowcase - i just end up with a big soggy pile in the washing machine. I've also tried to clip the top together, but it never works!

Ordering one of these babys just now! Thanks!

I tie the top of pillowcases with garden wire before the wash. But I was going to give you the link that Rhi posted :D

I've never tried the pillowcase idea until tonight, before I would just have the hammocks etc in a separate wash to other things apart from hand towels. It's been in for about half of the cycle so let's see how it looks when it comes out :D

I have the huge numnah bag - it's perfect because I'm using vetbed in one half of the explorer, which is fairly chunky and would probably fill a pillowcase by itself.
