Laundry Bags – How to Protect Your Delicates
Laundry bags not only protect your small wash items, fine hosiery, lace, satin and other delicates from getting snagged with other laundry but they can also save you money in washer repair bills. It’s important that you care for your clothes the right way and extend the life of your treasured lingerie pieces and negligee.
4 quick tips to keep your delicates looking fresh...
1. Check the care instructions label first
True. It’s important to check the care instructions on the label before washing your delicates. Most experts recommend that you hand wash your delicates to significantly extend their life. With such busy lives and catching up on entire seasons of Netflix you can save time by setting the machine to cold wash on a gentle cycle or delicate cycle as its the closet setting to hand washing. And remember, Laundry Rule 101: wash your darks and lights separately to prevent colour transfer.
Tip: Washing machine cycles are based on the speed of the wash and spin cycles. The slower the speed, the less abrasion and agitation the clothes are subjected to. In the case of your bras, slower is better because the elastic and any embellishments on the bra benefit from dealing with less stress
2. Wash Inside Out / Zip It Up
If you have delicates that include beads, screen-printed garments, or other embellishments; it’s a good idea to turn them inside out before washing to prevent snagging and rubbing on other garments. Simply place your lingerie, hosiery and other delicates into a good quality wash bag to further prevent wear and tear (do not over-stuff the bag as it prevents the items from being fully cleaned). Now before tossing them into the washing machine ensure that the zips or drawstring closures of the wash bags are securely done up to prevent garments from twisting around each other and morphing into some bizarre entanglement that will take time to unravel. This will also stop stray hooks and embellishments causing damage to expensive lace or ripping holes in all the wrong places – how embarrassing!
Tip: Keep small items such as delicates, socks, and scarves in laundry bags to prevent them from finding their way into the washing machine pump – it will be difficult to remove them or they will never be seen again!
3. Never Iron / Dry Flat
To extend the life of your delicates, never iron or put your bras in the dryer – instead dry flat on a towel. Elastic will deteriorate with heat and pegging your bra by its strap to dry will also cause irreparable damage as it will deconstruct the material fibres and over time gravity will pull down the elasticity and change the shape of the garments. Treat your delicate lingerie, especially your bras, with a bit of extra TLC and lay them flat on a towel to dry so that they maintain their shape. If you are hand washing your lingerie, don’t wring them or attempt to squeeze the excess water out as you’ll risk distorting their shape. Instead pat them dry, then lay flat. Either way, you’ll get a lot more wears out of them!
4. Store Properly
You’ve just spent all this time washing and drying your delicates, don’t ruin it by just tossing them in the draw or cupboard. Instead, neatly store your camisoles, negligee, slips, teddy's, lingerie sets and more in 100% Cotton Lingerie Bags.
