Laundry bags are great to use to keep small laundry items together while being washed and to help protect finer items. What I discovered last week about my laundry bags helped me understand why some of my laundry items were getting damaged: Each of my bags had a damaged zipper pull! This created a sharp metal object to pick at my clothes.
I used a pair of wire cutters to remove the zipper pulls. Now the bags still have many more uses . . . and my clothes are no longer in danger of damage!
