Washing Instructions

• Unless absolutely necessary, avoid using the washing machine and treat your lingerie to hand washing.

• If using a washing machine, always use cold water with a mild detergent on a gentle cycle. This will avoid ruining the elasticity of your garments.

• Always hang dry or dry flat. Never put your lingerie in the dryer because the heat will cause loss in elasticity of the fabric.
 

Additional Care Tips
• Use a mesh or lingerie bag to separate your lingerie from regular clothing. There are also bra bags especially designed to keep the shape of your bra during the washing process.

• Hook the back of your bras before washing to avoid any possible tugging or pulling against other undergarments.

• Turn panties inside out.

• Just like clothes, sort lingerie in colors.

• Rotate out your bras and panties every week to prolong their lifespan.
