When washing your bras, panties and other fine washables, always use a delicate soda-based fabric wash such as Forever New Fabric Wash. Regular detergents contain harsh chemicals that breakdown fabrics. If you wash your bras in the washing machine, placing them in a Mesh Lingerie Wash Bag will protect the bras from being wrapped around the agitator and other clothing. Avoid putting your bras or panties in the dryer. The heat of the dryer breaks down the lycra, spandex and elastic, so you will find yourself replacing your undergarments more frequently.
