When we say lingerie, most people would think it is expensive and really delicate, but there are also some cheap lingerie’s online. If you have bought one or two, you want to keep it looking its best. Some will only do hand washing their delicate items, but if you’re like most of the busy people, machine washing saves time. You may start by looking at the care instructions on the label. If items are washable, it is always a good idea to use a lingerie bag to keep them separate. A mesh bag prevents tangling and reduces surface wear from friction against tougher fabrics.
When using the washing machine, always bear in mind to use the delicate cycle, cool water and a gentle detergent. It is best to never put bras, panties and shape wear in the dryer. Heat breaks down spandex fibers and elastic. Line-drying is recommended. If the dryer must be used, first lightly shake out the items to untwist them. This will allow quicker, more even drying and reduce wrinkling. Most lingerie fibers have low moisture absorbency so they are fast drying and should be dried on a low temperature setting.
Sort articles by color, washing whites, darks and medium colors separately. Lighter garments can pick up dyes from darker colors. Separate man-made fibers from natural fibers. Man-made fibers can attract the oils that are released from natural fibers during washing. These oils build up over time and make the spots on the man-made fibers more obvious.
You can wash your bras in the washing machine, but make sure it is hooked together to avoid tangling or hooking onto other clothing. Use a mesh bag to prevent snagging or messing around the washing machine. But as always say, if you have enough time, just do the hand washing.
Sort delicate fabrics from tougher fabrics like denim and terry cloth from cheap lingerie’s online. This will lessen the friction of fabrics against each other. Lint-generating fabrics (fleece, towels) should be washed separately from lingerie. The lint clings to the lingerie fabrics.
