Mesh Bag

$8.00 +160pts

Little known scientific fact: every house comes with at least one laundry gremlin. And some houses suffer from full-on infestations of these mischievous little critters. Rarely seen and mostly benign, the laundry gremlin lurks near your washer and dryer, waiting to prey on your most vulnerable pieces of laundry. Socks are their meal of choice, but they will settle for almost any small and unsuspecting victim. Luckily our mesh laundry bags are specifically designed to thwart laundry gremlins and keep your precious Lil Helper products and other defenseless items.

Thwarts laundry gremlins

These bags may be for your delicates, but they are tough and well-built enough to keep even the most persistent laundry gremlins at bay.

Safeguard or store

We carry these bags as a companion to our HyPs system, but they will also work well for our breast pads, bamboo stay-dry liners, and any other small and vulnerable items. Fantastic as a storage bag for items that need a breath of fresh air to stay their best.

You’ve got options

No matter how much or how little you need to protect from the fate of falling into laundry oblivion, we have a size for that. Large - 30 x 40 cm (12 x 16 in.) and Small - 20 x 30cm. (8 x 12 in.).

Like Murphy’s Law says...

“What can be lost in the laundry, will be lost in the laundry.”

Okay so maybe I made that up, but we all can agree that it’s true! There’s nothing worse than losing your socks or a breast pad or your favourite mask. Our Mesh bags keeps the itty-bitties together.

Not because it is a particularly difficult task.

But because it. Never. Ends.

Laundry doesn’t care if you are sick. Laundry doesn’t care if you are tired. Laundry doesn’t care if the world is in the middle of a global pandemic and literally everything else is cancelled. Nope. It is always there.

And if laundry is an inevitable certainty, you know what else is a certainty?

Lost laundry.

I’m not sure how it happens. Cuz as bad as laundry on its own can be, there is something extra depressing about getting to the end of folding a load and realizing that something new has been ritually sacrificed to the laundry bogeyman.

Thanks to the mesh laundry bags, the gremlins will have to find a new household to terrorize.

Newbie Guide

These amazing mesh bags can not only be used with your cloth laundry but also your regular laundry. It is super durable and can be washed in any temperature, just be mindful of what you have in it (Watch temperature with PUL items such as Hyps)!
These fantastic bags come in two convenient sizes to fit your every need! Our small bag is 7.8 x 11.8 inches. The large is 11.8 x 15.7 inches.
These bags are great to keep smaller items in check when they are being washed. We recommend this for your liners, hyps, masks and any other small items that may accidentally venture to the filter if left to itself! Make sure you do not stuff them too full, the items within the bag still need to be able to move around and agitate.
Not at all! These bags have an elastic that you simply tuck the zipper into once the bag is closed! This not only keeps all your wonderful items safe from zippers, but also keeps the bag closed so everything stays safely inside.

Sock Saver

I originally got this bag to machine wash my HyPs without loosing them forever to my gremlin of a washing machine but I decided to start tossing my socks in here to try and save the few matching pairs I have left. So far so good!

Hi J.Y.!
That is perfect! We are strong believers that laundry gremlins turn missing socks into extra tupperware lids - so any small step to stopping their evil plot is a win in our books!
Happy washing,

Perfect way to store soiled pads between washes.

I ordered this because of how much smaller the apertures were on mesh. I think this works really well with the pads and is easy to rinse / wash as well. My pads don't end up unzippering the bag with the heavy spin of the washing machine, even on gentle wash. If I order more pads, will order one more bag too to help keep up with use and easy wash time.

That is fantastic! We are all about systems, not products, and having a good mesh bag to protect small/delicate items from laundry gremlins is key to a good reusables system.
Please know you can always reach out to if you ever need help with your wash routine as well!
Here and happy to help,

A nice little bag that fits all my liners/pads for my cycle and week. Can’t go wrong with a little bag!

Wish I had one sooner!

I've used reusable pads for years, but always had issues with them accidentally mixed into the dryer because they got lost among other items. I LOVE that this not only lets me wash them safely, but is also a great collection bag during the days leading up to laundry day! I hang it on my closet door, and it's perfect to just toss my rinsed/used ones in there. A fabulous idea and execution!

Thank you for leaving a review! Our goal is to create whole systems to help with life's messy moments and we are thrilled our Mesh Bag is helping you conquer your cloth pad laundry so easily. Thanks for choosing Lil Helper.


Just perfect to wash all my new reusable pads.
