Quality garments should be treated with respect and care, lingerie is no different. To maintain the longevity, beauty and quality of your intimates, the first rule to follow is reading the care instructions found on each garment care label.
Pretreat stains on heavily worn or delicate areas such as the underwire, straps and lace with a mild stain removal soap bar. While wetting the stained area, use the soap and rub gently to remove the stain.
Washing lingerie by hand is by far the best method for maintaining the longevity, beauty and quality of your intimates.
When hand washing your garments use a mild detergent with cold water, and avoid rubbing the fabrics. Always ensure that the back hook and eyes are clasped together prior to washing to prevent potentially snagging other garments.
Hang to dry or lay item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack. If your item requires it, steam to remove wrinkles; do not use the iron directly on silk or synthetics.
How should you treat leather?
Lingerie with leather can be difficult – because leather can crack and or discolor when wet. Be sure to check the care label to see if the leather is washable. If not, consult your dry cleaner.
