Dirty, sweaty laundry making your house stinky?



Here is a great solution from STNKY

Keep the laundry from stinking up your house

This is one of my newest favorite products. I was a little skeptical at first. The STNKY company claims you can store, wash and dry your laundry all in one bag. So I got a couple just to see.

You can use this for gym clothes, kids' sports uniforms and scrubs. Pretty much any laundry you don't want to touch too often.

I got a small one and an extra-large. It is very well made with a sturdy handle for carrying. One of it's unique features is the fact that it zips on both ends and has a mesh bag inside. 

It took me a minute to figure it out so I will spare you that confusion. It's best to load it from the top, where the strap is located. Stick your stinky laundry in it and zip it up until laundry day. I threw a pair of jeans, a couple pairs of shorts, some t-shirts and socks I had worn while hiking into the XL bag. I didn't want to overfill it so it would clean my clothes properly. I stuck a couple of towels and several washcloths into the small bag.


I left them sitting in my laundry basket for about 4-5 days and did not have any smell coming off them at all. Then I took them to my local laundromat and gave them a try in the machines.

To wash, unzip the bottom and the mesh bag should fall out. If not, give it a tug. I turned my bag inside out too so anything that touched the clothes was exposed. I washed it on a regular wash with hot water. It came out of the wash intact and into the dryer it went.

I also dried it on hot. I was kind of trying to see if it would shrink or get damaged with the heat. It didn't. Yay! When it was dry, the bag was still intact and I just folded the clothes up and brought them home in the same bag. The handles make it easy for me because I live in an apartment on the third floor and have to haul it up all those stairs.

I'm going to buy one for my son-in-law who likes to hit the gym and my teen grandson who is a big baseball player. I figure it will save my daughter some time and not stink her out with the smelly clothes.

I totally recommend this to anyone who has laundry they need to store for a bit. It would be great for travel too. I usually end up using a plastic bag for that. My new bags will be much more convenient. 

You can buy them here or on Amazon.
