Ensure that your lingerie receives the love and attention it needs to stay beautiful, by adopting these simple care practices:
- Always wash your bras in a washbag. This will ensure that the hooks do not get caught on anything in the wash and break. It will also stop your delicates from getting tangled and stretched with your other washing.
- Dry your lingerie in the shade as the hot sun is not great for the elastics in them and will cause them to stretch prematurely.
- Do not dry your lingerie in a dryer as this too is not good for the elastics.
- When storing your moulded bras, do not fold the cups inside out as this can cause the moulding to go out of shape.
Wash and Protect
Always wash your lingerie and delicate nightwear in a washbag to protect from being damaged. The clips should be fastened on your bra when placed in the washbag to protect hooks from damaging other delicate garments and from rubbing on the drum of your washing machine.
Ban the Bleach
Cold wash in a soft detergent. Normal washing powder is fine, just don’t use any harmful cleaners such as bleach as this may damage the fabric of your garment. Wash light and dark colours separately to avoid any chance of colour running!
Ditch the Dryer
Dry in the shade and not in direct sunlight. The heat & light of the sun will cause the elastics to deteriorate and will also cause fading. Never tumble dry as the heat from the dryer will cause similar damage to your lingerie as direct sunlight.
