Water Soluble Bags from Elkay
Convenience and protection from dirt and contamination.  

Safe to Use

When laundered in water over 140°F, the Polyvinyl Alcohol bag material dissolves completely and leaves no residue that can harm garments, laundry equipment or waste treatment systems. The bags are highly resistant to most organic solvents, greases, fats and oils, are impervious to most gases, and will not generate a static charge.


Elkay Water Soluble Bags are puncture-resistant and can be used to hold wet or damp materials for hours without rupturing. The bag and its contents can be placed in an industrial washing machine*, where the exceptionally hot water (140° F -- 66° C or above) used in commercial laundry causes the bag and tie tape to dissolve. *These bags are not for household use.


Water Soluble Bags are an environmentally-friendly and hygienic solution to minimize contact between staff and contaminated laundry. They’re commonly used in healthcare and industrial settings to isolate, transport and clean soiled bed linens, clothing, uniforms, etc.
