Wash Lace and Other Delicates
To learn how to care for lace, you can start with using a high-quality, gentle soap when washing. The Delicate Wash is the perfect solution. For lace, we recommend hand washing with cold water, and not using the washing machine (even on the gentle cycle). Massage the soapy water evenly onto the fabric and allow the item to soak for roughly 30 minutes. Rinse well once the soak is complete and gently press out excess water. Be sure never to wring it (in other words, don’t twist it up tightly and squeeze). Lay flat in its natural shape to dry.
