Most frequent questions and answers
All Solubag products will eventually dissolve at any water temperature, but their instant dissolution temperatures vary. A Solubag’s dissolution is specifically designed for its unique use. Most of our T-shirt bags will dissolve instantly in cold water, while our mesh bags will dissolve instantly in boiling water.
If you live in an area that receives heavy rain, our dissolvable mesh bags that only dissolve in hot water would be the best solution. Just like a paper bag, the T-shirt bag wouldn’t last too long in the rain, but with our wide selection of reusable and dissolvable mesh bags some rain shouldn’t be a problem.
When water breaks down a Solubag, the final solution consists of water and a harmless amount of carbon. This water can be safely consumed and can even be used to water your plants! Don’t worry about polluting the ocean or other water systems because Solubag does not harm the environment.
Compostable bags have been around for a while, and many are not aware that they require composting facilities. Most cities do not have industrial composting facilities, so compostable bags end up in landfills where they won’t break down. If they fly into the ocean, they will harm sea life. Solubag will dissolve in whatever environment they end up in because they break down within 180 days.
