Proper bra care starts with pre treatment. Treat stains from sweat or spills with our enzymatic Stain Solution. Focus on susceptible areas such as underwires, bands, and straps and work in using a soft, dense brush like our Stain Brush.
Regular pretreatment can help prevent bras and lingerie from looking dingy over time, as it helps remove unseen oils, deodorant, and body products that can cause stains over time.
Hand washing is the best and safest method for washing bras, as it allows for the most control over water temperature and agitation. Opt for hand washing especially when cleaning fine lingerie.
First, add the appropriate amount of Delicate Wash to a washbasin or sink filled with cool to warm water.
Submerge the item and gently agitate the water with your hands to evenly distribute soap.
Soak for up to 30 minutes.
Rinse well by running cool water through the item until the water is no longer soapy. Do not wring. Instead, press the water out of the item.
If you must machine wash, be sure to use a "hand wash" or delicate cycle with a low spin. This will help to ensure your bras don't become misshapen. Machine washing is suitable for non-underwire bras like sports bras or bralettes.
First, fasten the band closed and place it in a Mesh Bag to help preserve elasticity and prevent tearing and snagging in the machine.
Select the delicate or hand wash cycle and use cool water and a low spin.
Add the appropriate amount of Delicate Wash according to the machine and load size.
Remove promptly from the machine after washing.
Dry & Finish
Always air-dry bras. We do not recommend placing bras in the dryer because the exposure to heat and tumbling will reduce the fabric's elasticity and can warp the shape. If you want to refresh bras or de-wrinkle nighties or slips, give them a pass with a hand steamer.
