How To

How-To | Launder Your Lingerie

Jun 4, 2020

Great lingerie is not only delicate, it can be expensive. If you've discovered and invested in a style you love, it's important to know how to wash lingerie. Follow our steps for washing silk and lace intimates to keep them (and you) looking and feeling beautiful for years to come.

Gather these tools:

Wash & Stain Bar, Wash Tub Basin, Delicate Wash (The best detergent for delicates) , Mesh Washing Bag, Jiffy Steamer, Delicate Spray

STEP 1:
Sort out the situation

Sort bras and intimates by material and structure. Detailed lace, padded push-ups, and supportive underwire or construction should always be washed by hand while non-wire, cotton, and sports intimates can be machine washed. Wash with like colors only.

STEP 2:
Treat tough stains delicately

Remove body oils, make-up, and self-tanner with The Wash & Stain Bar. Wet the bar and gently work the lather into delicate straps, supportive underwire, and underwear liners. Always use cold water for treating blood stains.

STEP 3
Time to get handsy

Handwashing is the best and safest method for washing bras, fine lace, and silk fabrics. To handwash lingerie, add 2 capfuls or a squirt of Delicate Wash to a Wash Tub Basin 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.

Go for Spin

When machine washing, fasten the band closed and place in a Mesh Washing Bag to preserve elasticity and prevent tearing and snagging in the machine. Select the delicate cycle and use cool water. Add the appropriate amount of lingerie wash, we recommend using Delicate Wash according to the machine and load size.

STEP 4:
Hang out or lie down

Hang to dry or lay item(s) flat in its natural shape on a drying rack. Never use the dryer as the high heat will reduce the fabric’s elasticity and moisture-wicking properties.

To remove wrinkles, skip the iron. Steam intimates and fine lingerie for the perfect finish, as needed. 

Freshen with Delicate Spray between wearing and washing.

STEP 5:
The perfect fit

Store bras in their original shape to preserve fit. Short on space? Fold bras one cup into the other, smoothing out lumps or dents to avoid distorting the construction.
