Whether your lingerie is in lace, satin or tulle, it is delicate and precious. Look after it well in order to get the best wear from it for a very long time. Here is some simple care advice that is easy to follow!
Don’t say that you mixed your whites and your colors?! You didn’t? You were right not to – you will have brighter colors for longer.
Now that your colors are sorted through, place your lingerie in your washing bag or a pillow case to avoid it getting caught on other clothing. Remember to attach the hooks of your bras. This will avoid snagging on delicate fabrics such as lace.
For your washing powder or liquid, choose products that are specifically made for delicates and don’t add softener.
Softener can remain in the fibers of your products and reduce their elasticity.
Choose a cold water, delicate, low-spin cycle on your washing machine.
When drying your lingerie, dry it flat. Do not tumble dry.
If you have the time and have chosen to hand-wash your lingerie, don’t start washing your delicates without having first read our advice:
A few minutes in cold water and then take it out to avoid the fibers becoming damaged or softened.
When removing water, don’t twist your lingerie, press it gently so that it keeps it’s elasticity.
Use a delicate soap and wash gently without scrubbing.
Choose to air-dry your lingerie, always drying it flat.
If you wash molded cups, don’t fold them as this will damage their shape.
Avoid using bleaching products, instead of becoming whiter, your lingerie may become yellow!
Lingerie is made from fine, delicate materials that require a great deal of attention. This is particularly true of silk pieces, such as nightwear. Caring for silk requires special care, and we recommend checking the instructions on the labels to make sure you don't make a faux pas.
Silk is a particularly fragile material, and becomes even more so when wet. That's why we recommend washing your silk lingerie by hand.
Separate colors to preserve them.Always use cold water, not lukewarm.Don't leave your lingerie to soak for too long: between 3 and 5 minutes maximum.
Try not to crease your garments too much during washing. Use liquid detergent rather than washing powder. To remove a stain, dab gently without rubbing the silk.
If the label indicates machine washing is possible.
Separate colors to preserve them. Be sure to use a delicate or hand-wash/cold-water program. Remember, heat is silk's enemy.
Use a very mild detergent, preferably liquid, and avoid fabric softener.
