Ultimate guide to hand washing your sexy lingerie

Posted by sofia comas on April 30th, 2021

Your sexy lingerie needs TLC and you should never wash them in a washing machine. The best way to wash your sexy panties and bras is by hand. It allows you to ensure that your intimates are properly cleaned. Remember, bras and panties, especially lace panties, should never be washed in hot water. It will ruin the elastic and also cause it to lose shape. If that happens, you will not be able to wear your sexy lingerie after a few washes. On the other hand, if you have silk panties and bras, you can use lukewarm water to wash them. 

Washing Sexy Lingerie by Hand

Here are some tips on how to wash your sexy panties and bras by hand and ensure that they are properly cleaned:

Pre-wash Soak: It is important to soak your lingerie before you begin the hand washing process. So, take some soapy water and allow your lingerie to soak in it for about 5 to 10 minutes. This will help dislodge the dirt and grime from your undergarments. 

Soaping: After soaking, take some soap and apply it directly to areas that are soiled. Use your fingers to gently rub the areas to get rid of dirt and stains. 

Rinse: Make sure you rinse your sexy panties and bras thoroughly to get rid of all the soap. Otherwise, it could lead to itching and rashes. 

Drying: Do not wring your intimates. Instead, look to gently squeeze them to get rid of excess water. Once you are done, smooth out the bras and panties so that they regain their shape and hang them to dry. Keep them away from direct sunlight and heat. In case, your seamless panties tend to hold too much moisture, don’t be tempted to wring it. Just place the panties (or bras) on a clean towel and roll it up. Squeeze the towel to remove the water from the panties. Make sure you put the panties back into shape. Do not hang; let it lie flat and allow it to dry naturally. 

Use the Right Detergent

While you can get different types of detergents for hand washing sexy laundry, all are not suitable. The last thing you need is a detergent that is replete with bleach and is harsh; such detergents will wreak havoc with the fabric and ruin your sexy lingerie. Also, the residue left behind by these detergents could cause skin irritation. 

Make sure you choose a gentle detergent. Look for one that is formulated for lingerie. That way, you will have peace of mind knowing that the detergent will not be harsh on your intimates. In case you cannot find one, don’t worry. You can use a detergent that is made for baby clothes. This will be gentle and will not have chlorine or other chemicals. 

If you are traveling, you can carry baby shampoo with you. It will serve dual purposes. You can wash your hair as well as your intimates with this shampoo. 

Washing Silk Intimates

Never wash your silk sexy panties and bras in the washing machine. It will ruin the fabric. Instead, hand wash it with care and make sure you gently squeeze out excess water. After that shake the lingerie well and put it back into shape before you hang it to air dry. If you want to remove the wrinkles, turn the lingerie inside out and run a warm iron. The lingerie should be damp when you iron it. 

The Bottom Line

Now you know how to wash your sexy lingerie. You can go ahead and buy your lingerie online and you will be able to keep it clean without any worries.
