Caring for your lingerie and intimates can be a delicate matter—especially when it comes to washing.
The prettiest, dreamiest bras and panties are often detailed with embroidery and designed in exquisite lace, lustrous satin, and other silky-soft fabrics that often bear the “hand wash only” instructions on the hang tag. It’s these coveted details that make lingerie the most fragile of your underpinnings. Not to worry, this just means they require a little careful handling when it comes to cleaning and maintenance. With proper care, even your finest lingerie can last for years to come.
How to Hand Wash Delicate Intimates
Fill your sink with lukewarm water and add an alcohol-free, hand-wash detergent.
Submerge the garment completely and let it soak for a few minutes. Gently massage any stains or spots with your fingers to remove.
Rinse your bra in cool water until the water runs clear. Gently squeeze out excess water and pat dry with a soft towel. Lay flat on the towel and let your intimates air dry.
