Hand Washing Your Bras (Recommended)
You can preserve the life of your hand-washables by following a few simple steps.
Fill your sink with lukewarm water and add an alcohol-free hand washing detergent such as Dreft, Ivory Snow, or Forever New.
Avoid Woolite which is harsher and can deteriorate elastic
Soak lingerie for up to an hour
Gently rub the fabric together to remove dirt
Rinse in cool water (until the water runs clear)
Lay garment flat on a towel
Lay another towel over top and press to remove extra water
Always hang to dry
Machine Washing Your Bras
When using a washing machine, a mesh or lingerie bag is best to separate bras and keep them looking fresh.
Hook the backs of your bras
Put similar color items in a lingerie bag
Wash on a delicate cycle in cool water with gentle detergent
When you take your molded cup bras out of the wash, reshape the cups with your hands.
Don't wring out or stretch your bras
Always hang to dry.
Never put bras in the dryer because the heat will break down the spandex and you will lose elasticity
You may want to wash most of your panties by hand.
For the machine-washable ones, wash on a delicate cycle in cold to warm water, not hot. Line dry.
