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 fabric wash such as Soak or Forever New that are free of harsh sulphates, phosphates and dye. These products work for hand-washing, and can also be used in your washing machine. Tip: Eliminating harsh detergents will extend the life of your delicates  

Wash By Hand - Hand-washing is the very best way to keep bras, panties and swimwear looking the best. It is by far the most gentle way of caring for your delicates. In fact, the majority of bras are made to be hand-washed. Always wash in cold water. Tip: Press wet lingerie in a towel to gently remove excess moisture. Do not wring out your delicate bras or swimwear.   

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. A mesh bra bag with a wire-frame will help keep your underwire bras in good shape for longer.

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.
