How to Wash Your Lingerie the Right Way

We can’t usually see what we wear beneath our clothes, so it’s no wonder that taking care of bras and panties usually falls by the wayside. But the most consistent love-hate relationship of our lives needs TLC, too. You may not be a fan of wearing bras or keeping your underwear on at all times, but you can take care of them so they last as long as possible — without them becoming fraying, discolored undergarments you’d rather die than lay claim to.

Our delicates need a specific kind of care, but most of us don’t have time to hand wash our lingerie. If you do, that’s great. But for the rest of us, there are a few machine basics that will make your life easier. After all, putting in a little work to make your lingerie last as long as possible is eons better than resorting to last year’s bathing suit bottoms, right?
