Vibha Ecopac introduces water-soluble infection control laundry bags to fight against COVID and to prevent the spread of COVID-19

The environmentally friendly infection control bags can be put straight into the washing machine to limit exposure to virus. These bags dissolve in the washing machine on a 700C wash cycle. The water soluble bags are extensively used in hospitals & hotels in order to minimize contact between staff and contaminated laundry. 


The infection control bags are made based on an innovative polymer technology which is designed to be water-soluble, non-toxic and marine safe.  The bags, which won the Laundry and Dry-Cleaning Award for best new product in 2020 internationally, retain all the characteristics of standard plastic laundry bags by being strong and puncture resistant with barrier properties. They have the added benefits of pathogen dwell time being reduced and dissolving fully and safely in industrial washing machines.


Sealed bags can be put directly into machines so that there is less risk of cross-contamination of COVID19 to either housekeeping or laundry staff.


 The bags completely dissolve on a 700C wash cycle and biodegrade safely in the waste water system, leaving just clean laundry and no plastic residue in the machine.


For the Heads of Sustainability within hotel chains, this simple switch also helps solve the ‘coronavirus pollution’ crisis – enabling an increased use of PPE such as bags, aprons and gloves to reduce the risk of pathogen cross-contamination but without increasing their hotel group’s plastic pollution footprint.


The company has been manufacturing and supplying these bags to hospitals & hotels in international market as well as in pan India basis.  Major brand names include the Shangri-la, Courtyard by Marriott, Holiday Inn, Grand Hyatt, Radisson, The Residency, ITC Hotels, Double Tree Hilton and the CrownPlaza.

The standard size of the No Residue hot water soluble laundry bag is 660x900mm 25 microns comes with tie. The standard packing is a Box with 200 bags.
