How to wash and care for your lingerie

Now that you’ve decided on your look, it’s important to know how to care for it properly. Each type of lingerie material will have instructions located on a tag inside, which will generally be sewn into a seam. You’ll want to follow these guidelines to get the most out of your garment, as they differ from each manufacturer.

If you haven’t got that information on hand, check out our list of general tips below.

Hand washing lingerie

Most care labels will recommend hand washing your lingerie. The good news is that it’s easy to do, and you’ll get a longer life out of your intimates.

  • Fill a bucket or your sink with cold or warm water and add a small amount of gentle washing detergent.
  • Add your lingerie and allow to soak for 10 minutes.
  • Gently rub any marked or stained areas, before rinsing under cold water.
  • For lace garments, it is best to pre-treat any marks or stains with a compatible stain remover, before completing the steps above using warm water only.

Machine washing lingerie

Given the delicate nature of lingerie, it is almost always recommended you hand wash them if possible. If you must use a machine, here are some pointers to help minimise damage.

  • Use a low water temperature on a delicate or wool setting to prevent damage and shrinking.
  • Wash your lingerie with similar colours to avoid them running, and with similar lightweight fabrics to avoid damage.
  • Fasten hooks or clips while washing so that they don’t become tangled or stuck.
  • Place your items in a netted washing bag, or even a pillowcase, to keep both your washing machine and lingerie safe.

Drying lingerie

Because lingerie is made to be stretchy, any drying method involving too much heat will impact the fabric in a negative way. Check out the below tips for the best way to dry it.

  • Do not use a tumble dryer.
  • Do not wring lingerie with your hands or a device. Use two towels and gently press the lingerie between to get rid of excess water.
  • Avoid using pegs and line or drip dry on a flat surface, out of harsh sunlight.
