Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought 4 of them!!! At first I thought that it would be too big, so in love w it I went to another store, which didn’t have it, went back to get the same mesh bag. I’m thinking about getting more, that’s how much I love it. It prevents mixing the clothes (dresses, tutu skirts, etc.) and allows you to separated under garments, line dry dresses, sweaters! I don’t know what I was doing before buying this mesh bag!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keeps Opening In The Washer I had one like this for years that I bought at another store. Eventually the zipper failed. This looked just like the old one so I bought it for my socks. It worked fine the first couple of times I used it, then it came open in my front-load washer. I thought I must not have closed it completely, so every time since I have made a point of closing it. Yet half the time now it opens during the wash. Maybe I got the one bad piece in the batch, but I won't buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Others Have been using what I thought were "mesh" bags for 20+ years. These are truly superior. There are not any openings in the bag, like the "holes" in the net-style bags. This keeps items, especially items with hooks, from getting stuck onto the bags which can ultimately end up in a tear to the bag. Want to replace all of my old wash bags with these!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not nearly as nice as the previous Tide bags I have 2 laundry bags with the Tide label-- they are both at least 6 years old and still look new. This newer product is inferior in quality for several reasons, the most important being that the zipper is not enclosed in any kind of foldover (as in the Tide bags) or under an elastic strap as some other brands have. This zipper could easily snag something else in the wash, and also could easily get pulled open in the wash. The mesh of the bag is not nearly as fine and smooth as the old Tide bags either. These might be okay for college kids, but they're not what I'd want for my delicate blouses, sweaters, etc. These went back to the store today. Why replace a quality item that wasn't much more expensive?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large mesh laundry bags I washed 3 delicate tops in each bag, and a dress to wear to my neices wedding in a 3d bag that I already own. They were all hung to dry and came out beautifully. I also want to rave about the sectioned tube bag that holds bras and hosery and scarves in separate sections. Great.I went back to purchase the 2 large bags because i liked the one I purchased with the tube bag. It was was so fantastic. I go to my store at least once a week to just look around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks good! i haven't actually used this product yet but it's similar to others i have used in the past, but appears a little more sturdy. i will give it a whirl and see how it holds up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mesh Bag LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this mesh bag! It's made very well and the price is easy on the wallet. Great for wet workout clothes & lingerie. The zipper is hidden so it doesn't catch on other delicates in washer. Thank you Container Store!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not the best They're okay, but I will spend more money next time on the Tide or Woolite bags. The mesh isn't as fine with this, and one of the metal pieces that holds the zipper in place snagged and ended up squarely in the middle of the bag after one regular wash cycle. It's find to stash my fiance's shirts in (large enough) but I wouldn't trust my dresses or nice shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Never had one of these before but I am pleased with the quality and size of the bag. The one thing I wish it had was a loop so I could hang it up when it is not in use. But the holes are big enough that I can use those...just have to watch when I take it down as not to rip it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need a hang tab Love the bag. But it needs some sort of hook so that I can hang it in my laundry area when not in use. I have a strip of hooks for this sort of thing and I don't know what to do with this particular bag because it does not have any sort of hangers. No fabric loop and the zipper does not have a loop on it. I will probably find some way to put a hook on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs stronger mesh The large bag I got has only been through the wash about a dozen times, and already the mesh is getting big holes in the middle of one side. The bag is well sewn and well designed, but what good is it if the contents fall out holes in the side? I'd rather pay more for a bag with strong mesh that lasts longer. I won't buy one again unless they are improved with more durable fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have Must have for bras and other delicates. Also great for items that have long ties that get wrapped around your other clothes when you wash them together (like belts on your robes, etc.), and stuff with beading that may get caught on things.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Faulty zipper Maybe I got a dud, but the zipper on one of my bags broke within a few weeks. It was always getting stuck, and one day I had to cut the bag to get my clothes out. I also wish the zipper pull itself would be a bit smoother or more rounded. I'm always afraid that it will damage the other delicates in the load. (I have other mesh bags that have better zipper pulls; otherwise I probably wouldn't have noticed this detail.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will snag This bag has the same problem that many other mesh wash bags have. The metal zipper stop at the top will snag other clothing in the washer. I removed it and replaced it with some thread, but I hate having to do this. Otherwise the product seems fine - nice and large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more lost socks! We keep one of these in the master bedroom, and one in my son's room. At the end of the day, all socks go in the bags. The bag can go in any wash, and the socks come out clean, and all together. No more mismatches! Happy mama!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bags These are great laundry bags. I purchased the large since the small one pictured seemed a tad too small for my needs. The large is a tad to big--I really need a medium size one--as it is the same size as a standard pillowcase. Still, it's a great back and I like the zipper is folded in and not at the edge of the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a problem solved For years I've been annoyed with laundry bags for delicates-zippers that won't stay closed even when new-the money down the drain. This time I went to the Container Store as it's their business to find the best. These bags are great and though it's a small problem in life, it's one less problem to deal with. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best lingerie bags you can find these are perfect for socks, bras, you name it! the material is soft and the zipper is strong. and the price is unbeatable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for some items but not all This product is great for larger items like delicate sweaters or hoisery but is definitely not good for any items that have hooks such as bras. The openings in the mesh are too large and during the washing process the hooks get caught and cause quite the tangle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far better than other bags I have tried I have been using this product for several months. The fine mesh used in its design is far superior to the last 2 or 3 wash bags I have had. I have a PVC laundry bag holder also from The Container Store and the piece that holds the laundry bags in place will also slip over this (when in an opened position) and keep it handy to place things in immediately so I don't forget about them when it is time to wash. I just bought one for my daughter, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag This is great for sweaters with beads, or any item that seems to snag itself to other items while washing, or stretches out easily. I keep my mesh bag in the bottom of my laundry hamper - it's there when I sort clothes for washing,and is used in almost every load. Very durable, one of my best buys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these I had one of these but decided to get another because I use them for so much! They are great for my daughter's tights and my baby boy's bibs (those velcro closures love to stick to everything and can really ruin clothing). These keep me (and my clothes!) happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Hand Washables in the Washer Useful for keeping bras or sweaters safe in the washer. There's no tangling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Solution for a Tangled Mess in Washer! I own a busy catering service and we always have lots of aprons to wash. The aprons have long strings that, if left on their own wrap around the agitator, causing damage. Also, it usually took about 30 minutes or untangle the strings and it was an extreme waste of time! One of my employees thought if we could wash the aprons in big mesh bags that would help. I looked everywhere, and the only place I found them large enough was the Container Store. Problem solved!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I haven't lost a pair yet! Items that need handwashing or delicate cycle can be a hastle. This bag provides you with great protection for your intimates when throwing them in the washer/dryer with other non-delicate items. I haven't had to toss out a ruined pair of anything yet!
