Promising Review: "Holy cow! Why didn't I think to make this!? This thing is probably the most helpful thing I own! I despise how liquid detergent is in these huge tubs with a spigot. It ALWAYS drips down on to whatever is underneath. It's so frustrating! However, this fixes that problem! It easily just slides on the tub and holds firm. I keep the cup sitting on the little shelf and it catches any drips. So no waste!" —Rachel L. White

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

I really like that they are caged so it protects the structure of the bra. So far I have had good experiences with these wash bags. They are super easy to use and my bras stay looking good! I would recommend these to anyone who is wanting to extend the life of their bras." —Amazon CustomerGet them from Amazon for $12.45.
