Lace

A delicate, openwork fabric intricately patterned either by hand or by machine. Common in lingerie, blouses, and household linens, lace is made with silk, linen, cotton, or synthetic thread.

Pretreat

Pretreat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, and straps.

Stain Solution is ideal for protein and tannin stains, such as wine, coffee, ink, grass, urine, blood, and old, set-in stains such as pit stains.

The Wash & Stain Bar works the material to remove dirt, grease, oil, and makeup. Use the bar to target straps, underwires, and waistbands.

To remove odors, presoak the item for 30 minutes in cool water mixed with ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar.

To treat overall yellowing and dinginess, and to rejuvenate vintage items or linens, add 1 capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to a washbasin or sink filled with hot water and presoak the garment.

Do not use All-Purpose Bleach Alternative on silk and wool.

Handwash

Handwashing is the best and safest method for washing lace.

Add 2 capfuls or a squirt of Delicate Wash to a washbasin or sink filled with cool 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.

Machine Wash

We do not recommend machine washing lace.

If you do, be sure to turn the item inside out, and place it 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 Delicate Wash according to the machine and load size.

Dry & Finish

Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or hang to dry. Do not put it in the dryer!

To remove wrinkles, we recommend steaming for the best and safest finish. If you don’t have a steamer, you can use the iron by hovering over the item and using the steam setting.

To freshen items between wearings, spritz with Delicate Spray.

Store

Lace items should be stored folded to prevent stretching or distorting. Avoid using hangers that may snag or rip delicate lace items in the closet.

Always store items clean. We recommend storing in a breathable cotton Storage Bag to protect items from bugs.

Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.
