Most women who take the time to get good fitting lingerie want it to last. So here is some advise on laundering your delicates. Start with some good lingerie soap, this has natural chemicals that are soft on the fabrics and revitalize the elastics. Hand washing is highly recommended for lingerie but in these busy times we sometimes get lazy. Your bras should always be hand washed, especially if they have an under wire. Washing your bra at night then letting hang over night takes just a couple of minutes and it should be dry in the morning. As for your under wear, if you are going to use the washing machine, use the delicate cycle on a cold wash and put them in a laundry bag, forget about using the dryer unless you want to purchase new underwear every week.
