Caring for Your Lingerie

No matter what materials you choose, proper care will extend the life of your lingerie. Here are some general tips:

  •  Hand Wash: Whenever possible, hand wash your lingerie with a gentle detergent.
  •  Use a Lingerie Bag: If you must use a washing machine, place your lingerie in a mesh bag and use a gentle cycle.
  •  Air Dry: Lay your lingerie flat to dry. Avoid using a dryer, as heat can damage delicate fabrics.
