Is the little mesh bag a must? Can you just throw these in the washer directly?

I've never tried it, michellebelle, but I can't see why not if you don't have one. 

I do it because the mesh is slightly abrasive, and will help the tab "melt", and I imagine it will stop them from getting stuck to one part of fabric and maybe leaving a mark, BUT like I say, I've never tried it, so I really don't know how well it would work.

If you give it a go, let us know how you get on?

I bet a panty hose sock or just the foot end of a pair of pantyhose would do the trick and it would be cheap and easy to find. I understand the concept of not putting the whole chunk in the wash, if it doesn't dissolve it will be nasty in the wash and could stick to one item.  The mesh bag works as a barrier and contains the leftover bits as well.
