The Best Way to Wash a Bra

What do you think of when you read, "washing my bras".

Is your initial thought... "So glad I did that this week!"
How about..."Ooh I need to do that!"
Or is it... "People wash those things!?"

If it's either of the last two, listen up. Washing your bras is very important especially since they sit closest to your body. But you've got to do it the right way, or you're treating that $40 bra like it's a $4 bra and soon it will be that cheap quality.

wash brasIf you can, hand wash them. I remember when I did that, I was pretty regular at it too. Then I got married. And life opened up a whole can of stuff for me to do besides wash my delicates in my pearl necklace.

Now, I have a much easier (and less hands on) way of getting them clean and it makes me very happy.

Get a delicates bag from Wal-Mart for .97 cents, hook every bra to itself in the back, throw them in that bag (maybe splurge on another bag if you have a lot of bras) and put them in the washer on the gentle cycle.

When they're done, lay them flat to dry. They might be a new color afterwards (eeewww), but I promise you'll be so happy you did it.

Once they're dry, make sure you're not bunching them up in a drawer so that the underwire gets all bent out of shape. Think of it this way-you treat your formal gowns with care, and you only pull them out once (maybe twice) a year. These are things you wear everyday-that directly effect your body and how your clothes look on you.

Maybe we should be treating them with more care. I know two "girlfriends" who will appreciate it when you do :)
