The Water Soluble Strip Laundry Bag is a Universal Precaution Tool to enable linen handlers to economically isolate, transport and disinfect foul and contaminated linen. The bags are designed to be used as liners. Once filled, the contaminated linen can then be handled and transported to the laundry without fear of bacterial dispersion and exposure. The filled Laundry Bags are loaded directly into the washing machines eliminating the need to open bags in order to sort and/or load the contaminated linen as well as the potential exposure to the handlers. During the agitation cycle, the Water Soluble Strip and tie closure dissolve, releasing the contents of the bag into the washing solution. At the conclusion of the wash cycle, the used and disinfected portion of the Laundry Bag is removed and discarded or recycled.
