Definition : Bags designed for temporary storage of soiled linen, frequently at the location where it was used. These devices may be mesh, canvas, or plastic bags; some bags are color-coded according to the potential hazard of the intended content (e.g., colors may signify used cloth, contaminated/potentially contaminated linen, or operating room linen). Laundry bags are available for independent storage or for use with hamper stands; bags that dissolve either partially or completely in a full wash cycle to prevent staff contact with soiled linen are also available.
