Water Soluble Laundry Bag Operating Instructions

IN STORAGE
1. Keep bags sealed within their protective over-wrap until they are need for use.
2. Once a bag is removed from the pack, keep the remaining bags within the over-wrap material. This gives some measure of protection against accident exposure to moisture.
3. Store over-wrapped water soluble laundry bags at 45°F to 86°F and in Relative Humidity of 20% to 70% for optimum shelf life.

AT SETUP AND IN USE
1. Handle the bags with dry hands only. Avoid any contact by moisture with the bag film to preserve the film's strength and integrity.
2. IMPORTANT: A linen item known to be dry should be the first item placed in the bag. So it will gravitate to the bottom. It provides a significant measure of protection to the bag in the event moist items are later placed in that bag.
3. Do not place overly wet items in the bag at any time. Remember the bag is sensitive to moisture in any form.

AT CLOSURE
1. Expel as much excess air as possible before closing bag, taking care to avoid expelling air in your face. Reduction of trapped air content makes the closed bag a stronger unit for trans-shipment.
2. A colored neck tie is provided with every bag. Use it close the bag.
3. Caution: Do not knot the bag film as a means of closure. Such knots inhibit solubility during laundering.
4. The closed water soluble laundry bag should be placed within another outer bag for movement within and outside the hospital. This reduces the chance of puncture or snapping en-route to the laundry.

IN THE LAUNDRY:
1. The closed water soluble bag should be placed in the wash wheel or tunnel. Pre-sorting is contraindicated because the soiled linen is assumed to be contaminated.
2. During the initial cold flush cycle, whatever cold water soluble or hot water soluble type, the bag will open and begin to disintegrate, allowing contact with the linen by the wash water.
3. For complete liquefaction of the film we urge the following:
A. Do not overload the washer beyond its rated capacity.
B. Be sure the water temperature reaches at least 149°F during the wash cycle
C. The 149°F water should have been swirling around the bag linens for 40 seconds before the wash chemicals (detergent, alkali, etc.) are injected. Wash at 149°F water for 15 minutes minimum.

**Packing method alternative:
1. All bags are individually folded. Or
2. All bags are on the roll.
All bags are equipped with colored tie.
Caution: These Bags Are Packed in a Polyolefin Oute
