We frequently discuss how to properly wash bras to increase their lifespan. Unbelievably, your underwear is no different. Remember the hand-washed bras and underwear in Carrie Bradshaw's apartment bathroom? That was a lady who knew how to take care of her clothes. Although it's not required, it's a good idea to hang your underwear around the house. Review the care directions on your sensitive underwear before you throw them in the washer. Here are our best suggestions for maintaining any type of underwear so that it stays fresh and comfortable.
There are several advantages to keeping your underwear and clothing separate. First, by keeping your underwear apart, you can keep the bacteria they carry off of your clothing. You could believe that everything has been cleaned and scrubbed. Not quite. Every cup of washing water has easily 10K germs. Therefore, when you combine everything, you introduce all of the bacteria from your underwear to the mixture, which is bad. When you wash your underwear by yourself, you have more control over the water's temperature and the detergent you use. Additionally, washing your underwear with a fabric that is more durable might cause rips or snags in the fabric.
To destroy the bacteria's protective wall and eradicate it, our underwear must be washed at a temperature between 60 and 90 °F. You might not be washing at the proper temperature if you wash everything at once, depending on what you're washing. So, if you can, wash your underwear separately to ensure that no germs from there spread to your clothing, and vice versa.
You should wash your underwear with a mild detergent since they come into contact with the most delicate portions of your body. Your very sensitive skin may become irritated if you use just any standard detergent. Furthermore, since you're washing your underwear separately, you won't have to be concerned about using a stronger detergent on items like jeans or coats.
Care for your underwear cannot be standardized. We advise hand-washing anything made of lace or other delicate material that you believe might unravel or become tangled. The detergent and water temperatures are crucial. Try the delicate cycle and use a wash bag if you don't have time to hand wash. Don't worry; we have advice for cleaning your hands below.
A sink, your detergent, a washcloth, and a towel are all you need. Take your washcloth and dribble some detergent-infused water over it first. Any stains on your underwear should be spot-cleaned. Then, before carefully working the fabric, place your underwear in the sink and let it soak in warm water for a while. After a while, you'll notice some suds, letting you know it's time to rinse. After thoroughly rinsing the cloth to remove all detergent, you may either hang dry or spread out your clean underwear to dry. These handwashing instructions also apply to your favorite bras.
Your delicates will avoid the dryer's high heat if you hang them to dry. Depending on the material used to make them and whether they have an elastic waistband, as most do, By hanging your underwear, you prevent the elastic from deteriorating over time. They probably won't stay up when your elastic fails and will slide down while you walk, which is something nobody wants. In order to keep them in pristine condition, put them on a drying rack.
You now know how to preserve the quality of your underwear until it's time to organize your underwear drawer.
