Description

A fine mesh bag designed to capture the microfibres generated during the washing of synthetic fabrics and prevent them from entering the water system. The Guppyfriend is marketed as a pragmatic solution to the microfibre problem. By placing synthetic clothing in the bag fewer fibres are lost as the soft surface causes less abrasions which helps to extend the life of garments. Fibres that do break down are captured inside the bag. Dimensions are for the unfolded bag.
