Why not just use WSS (water soluable stablizer) that is made for emboriery?

Well, for one product they do use a washaway. But these are bags for sanitary purposes. Perhaps for use like in a nursing home where people put thier dirty clothes in a bag and the staff washes their clothes for them. That way the staff doesn't have to touch the clothes that might be contaminated in some way. They just put the whole bag in the washing machine, the bag dissolves, and then they can take the clean clothes out. They are probably a heavier product than what we use too.

touch the clothes that might be contaminated some way. They just throw the bag in the wash, the bag dissolves, and the clean clothes can be handled safely. The product is probably heavier than what we use.

I know Gori. She is a fantastic person and I have had some very nice classes in embroidery and sewing with her. Thanks for reminding me about her, because I have not been there for 2 years due to illness. Will definately be going this week. Thanks so much for sharing.*****
