For a solo backpack traveler, how do you pack your soiled clothes and clean ones in a single bag?

I just use a cotton or plastic bag.

I used a mesh bag. You can also use stuff sacks - different colours for clean & dirty.

I got issues with mixing soiled and cleaned though separated by plastics respectively ... the scent gets mixed terribly. However i must stay true to the one backpack travel thing to ease the carry this and that dilemma.
P.s. thanks by the way for sharing ideas.

I just wash clothes every day in the sink so that I never have dirty clothes. If for some reason I can't wash my clothes, I only ever have maybe one pair of undies, socks, and a shirt that are dirty, and they can easily fit in a small plastic bag or even a large ziplock.
