Lingerie can be difficult to wash. Depending on the material and the style, machine washing your lingerie can rip, tear or even shrink your lingerie. That’s why I’ve come up with some ways for you to wash your lingerie without making it a huge chore.
If you absolutely must machine wash your lingerie, due to time or the fact that you just don’t like hand-washing garments, then I suggest getting a lingerie bag (like this one from Forever New) to put your delicates in before tossing them in the machine. Wash on the gentle or delicate cycle and hang dry only!
The best way to wash your delicates, though, is by hand. This guarantees that they won’t rip or tear because they’re being handled by you, and you alone. Using a delicate soap, especially an eco-friendly one, is the best way to go. Harsher soaps or detergents, like Tide, won’t keep your garments as delicate and fresh-looking as you want them to. I suggest using a capful of eco-friendly shampoo mixed with some warm water. A little soap goes a long way, so once you’ve soaked your garments a couple of times, rinse them out, let them air dry, and they should be as good as new!
