Want to learn how to care for you intimate apparel and keep them in good condition? Whether you have a drawer full of Hanky Panky panties or Cosabella and Coobie bras, follow these simple washing and storing tips to make all your favorite undergarments last longer!
#1 Washing Your Undergarments – For fine undergarments (made of delicate fabrics), the best method is hand washing. Hand wash your delicates in cool water with detergents specially formulated for fine fabrics. It’s best to wash your garments in a container or colander, not directly in the sink, to avoid damage from the residue of other harsh cleansers. After hand washing your garments, following the directions of your specialized formula, lay them flat or hang them to dry. If you choose to use a washing machine instead, select a gentle cycle and use a gentle detergent. Wash your undergarments in a lightweight mesh bag for extra protection and then let them air dry; do not use a dryer or iron.
If you don’t have the supplies, we’ve got you covered! We have Soak products, a biodegradable, phosphate-free, dye-free, rinse-free formula, that is”perfect for washing your laciest lingerie, softest sweaters and all the laundry you love.” You only use 1 tsp. to every gallon of water, so a little goes a long way. We also offer stylish pink and blue tubs perfect for hand washing your undergarments to avoid the harsh residues in your sink or tub. These can also be used to store your laundry or bath products.
If you aren’t up to hand-washing, we offer Braza mesh washer bags and the Berry Ball “Innovative Bra Saver,” two of the best alternatives to hand washing. We offer various types of mesh washer bags which have multiple uses including storing your fine undergarments when traveling. The unique design of the Berry Ball protects your bras from being crushed or tangled in the wash while allowing for a thorough cleaning. Just insert the bras in this unique ball, place the ball that comes with it into the ball with your bras and throw in the washing machine. The ball moves around safely inside the ball with your bras to push out the dirt, sweat and odors. The Berry Ball also comes with a mesh washer bag to use for your panties, socks and other fine apparel.
#2 Storing Your Undergarments – Whether you are organizing your undergarments in your dresser at home or packing your suitcase for traveling, it’s important to protect your fine undergarments, especially your bras, so they do not lose their shape or get crushed in your suitcase. The Braza washer bags can be handy for organizing your garments, for instance, you could place your swimwear in one compartment and your hosiery in another. If you want to treat your bras extra special, try the Braza Travel Bag. With its hard case to protect your molded and underwire bras, it comes in a fun, feminine pink and black polka dot pattern.
