I have a few silk blouses that I have to pull on and no matter how careful I am, I always get make up on them when I pull them off. I remember from my younger days that the better dress shops always had a net bag that you could put on to protect your hair as well as the dresses from getting messed up while trying them on. I searched Amazon and found this item which is almost identical to the net bag I remember. I have used it several times now and my silk blouses are free of make up, saving me $ by not having to bring them to the dry cleaner. The bag is light weight, and very porous so breathing is not impaired. It is delicate so I am careful when I zip and unzip it. I am very happy to have found this.
