Lingerie takes care of you when you’re looking to indulge your sensual side—so why not return the favor?
Intimate apparel requires washing care as special as the occasions it ignites. And knowing how to wash lingerie safely and effectively ensures your intimates (and secret powers) stay intact.
Let’s unwrap this special edition of lingerie laundry day.
The thought of washing delicates can feel dangerous as delicate panties, briefs, and thongs are susceptible to holes, rips, and tears.
But don’t let these dainty elements keep you from conquering laundry day. With a few tricks and some organizational methods, your lingerie bottoms will be well on their way to clean and fresh-as-new.
The first thing you’ll want to do before washing lingerie bottoms is to separate them by fabric type. Many people make the mistake of throwing all of their delicates in the washing machine in the delicate cycle. However, only a few types of delicate fabrics should even go in the washing machine.
Some fabrics that can go in the washing machine include:
Underwear with sheer fabrics, lace, or small embellishments should be washed by hand. But before we learn how to hand wash lingerie, let’s go over some machine-washing basics for delicates.

Allow the stain to soak up the detergent for about 15 minutes before continuing with washing.
Extra delicate materials require a gentle touch. Sorry washing machine, you'll have to sit this one out. It's time to get our hands soapy.

And just like that, you've got a perfectly clean pair of panties. We've got to hand it to you: you make hand-washing look like a piece of cake.
Though lingerie bottoms may have delicate materials or decorations, they're pretty straightforward in their construction.
Bras and other lingerie tops, on the other hand, are a whole different game. Designed to fit your breasts, chest, and shoulders, bras work hard to maintain their pristine balance. Therefore, slight shrinkage or a damaged underwire could be detrimental to the fit.
An ill-fitting bra could distract from or feel uncomfortable to your silhouette, so treat them with extra care by washing them gently and thoughtfully.
While most bras are better suited for hand washing, a few can go in the washing machine without a problem. Sports bras, wireless bralettes, and synthetic bras can survive the washer in a mesh bag.
Even so, they can still accrue damage if not treated with care. Taking a few extra steps before turning on the washing machine could save your everyday bra from snagging or stretching.
You can avoid unnecessary harm to your bra by:

Typically, bras should get washed after 2 to 3 wears.4 Feel free to factor in their soil levels, such as sweat absorption or stains that need attention.
