Washing Conrad - Hilton Laundry Bags (non-plastic)?

Has anyone tried washing the non-plastic laundry bags you get at Conrads and some Hiltons? I have quite a collection and would like to add one as an amenity for visiting guests so they don't have to use plastic bags, which is very common. Prefer not giving them bags that have held my dirty laundry previously .

I'm guessing delicate cycle with air drying, but would love to hear from anyone who may have tried this before and what the outcome was.

If you've got so many surely its not much of a sacrifice to try to wash one?

Of course I could hand wash one, or them, but I have so many I could do a load in a large washer.. But may just try your suggestion!

If this is the cloth/fabric bag, I donít think youíre supposed to take them home with you.

I'm pretty sure it is expected. I doubt the hotels offering these up have the time to wash them by hand and they would definitely not be reused otherwise with future guests. It's not like they are cashmere, just nicer than plastic for storing dirty laundry since they breathe. And yes, I have used them to actually have laundry done by the hotels, so not a total cheapskate..

The fancy cloth bags Iíve seen at Conrad or similar, Iíd never think the hotel wanted me to take. The plastic bags, sure.

Perhaps you could post a picture, so we could see if itís the type I think it is.

Curious...why would anyone steal that many laundry bags?

I'm sure you're interested in being green, but honestly, the environmental impact of making a durable bag like that which is then taken home and basically never used is far greater than the very few plastic bags that are required, especially if they themselves are repurposed.

I really like the Conrad shoe bags, have several of them. As for how the bags survive washing, they stay intact but the logo will fade

I have also always been under the impression that the cloth bags are not intended to be taken.

They are made of the same breathable material the slipper bags are made of. My guess they cost less than $1.00 per bag for the hotel.

Thatís why I asked for a photo. Conrad and other top properties have some very fancy bags, that Iíve seen. Not a thin fabric bag.
