  • Separate Out Your Delicates - Keep a small basket with your dirty laundry to throw your delicates into. This makes it easy to care for them properly. Tip: Always read the care label on the garment before washing.
  • What Soap? Use a gentle soap such as Soak or Forever New that is free of harsh sulphates, phosphates and dye. These products work for hand-washing as well as for high-efficiency machines and regular washing machines. Tip: Eliminating harsh detergents will extend the life of your delicates
  • Hand-Washing - Hand-washing is great for lace bras & panties and lace trimmed sleepwear. It is by far the most gentle way of caring for your delicates. Tip: Roll wet delicates in a towel to gently remove excess moisture.
  • Love Your Washing Machine? Many customers find it easier to launder their delicates in the machine. Always wash with cold water and use the hand-wash or delicate setting. Tip: Placing your delicates in mesh bags to launder helps protect them. Use a regular mesh bag for delicate sleepwear and a wire-frame bra bag to wash your bras.
  • Skip The Dryer - Unless the garment tag specifically indicates to tumble dry, most delicates need to be laid flat or hung to dry. The dryer will shrink bra underwire casings, turn lace brittle, shrink cottons, and cause modals to pill. Tip: Some sleepwear and cotton panties can be tumbled dry but only use the LOW setting on your dryer.
