How to Wash Your Bras Correctly

Fasten the books before washing

Whether you’re using a bralette or strapless bra, make sure to hook your bras together before washing. This prevents them from getting caught on other clothes and damaging both.

Opt for hand washing
Your bras aren’t really dirty; they just have some sweat and oils on them. Especially when you wear a sports bra to the gym. They don’t need a tough scrub or to be soaked for long. While washing machines are quick, they can ruin your bra’s shape and the fabric, especially if it’s delicate, like lace or silk. Bras with lace, hook-and-eye closures, underwires, or decorations are especially at risk in a machine. Hand washing is safer and keeps them in good condition.

Dry Your Bras Correctly
Don’t put your bras in the dryer. Instead, after washing, gently reshape the cups and straps, and lay the bras flat on a towel to air dry. Hanging bras by the straps to dry can stretch them out, so it’s best to avoid this.

You don’t need to wash your bra after every use unless it gets sweaty. Generally, washing your bras after every four wears is a good rule to follow.

Easy Steps for Hand Washing Your Bras

  1. Prepare your washing solution

    Start by filling a basin or your sink with cool or lukewarm water. Add a tablespoon of a gentle liquid detergent, perfect for delicate items.

    We suggest using Tuff Naturals Liquid Laundry Detergent (LLD) for its effectiveness and gentleness. It’s not just formulated with biodegradable ingredients but also comes in biodegradable packaging. It’s also dermatologically tested to be gentle on the hands and has Natural Essential Oils & RelaxiWaves that relax and enhance well-being.

  2. Mix the detergent

    Gently swirl the water with your hand to make sure the detergent mixes well with the water.
  3. Soak for 10 minutes.

    Let your bra soak for about 10 minutes. There’s no need for scrubbing; the detergent will do the work of removing oils and sweat from the fabric. 
  4. Wash your bra

    Place your bra in the water and lightly swirl it around in the detergent solution to clean it.
  5. Rinse thoroughly

    After soaking, rinse your bra thoroughly but gently with clean water. Remember, don’t wring or twist your bra, as it could damage the fabric and shape.

How to Machine-Wash Bras Safely

  1. Choose the right bras for machine washing

    Not all bras are suitable for the washing machine. Bras made of cotton or other sturdy materials, those without underwire, and some sports bras can handle machine washing.
  2. Protect your bras in a lingerie bag

    Always put your bras in a lingerie bag before washing. This helps to prevent the bras from getting tangled with other clothes, protects the bra from damage, and keeps the straps from stretching out. Lingerie bags also stop bra straps from tangling with other items, ensuring a safe wash for all your laundry.
  3. Use a gentle liquid detergent

    You can use a gentle liquid detergent like our Tuff Naturals Liquid Laundry Detergent (LLD), which is mild and safe for delicate fabrics.
  4. Select the right wash cycle

    Use the washing machine’s delicate or gentle cycle with cold water to protect your bras.
  5. Skip the Fabric Softener

    Avoid using fabric softeners as they can harm the elastic fibers in your bras.

Tips for Washing Panties and Briefs

  1. Separate colors

    Sort your panties and briefs by color to prevent color bleeding. Washing similar colors together helps maintain the vibrancy of your underwear.
  2. Use a mild detergent

    Use a mild, color-safe liquid laundry detergent like Tuff Naturals LLD to wash your underwear. Avoid using harsh detergents or bleach, as they can damage delicate fabrics.
  3. Use cold water

    Using cold water for washing to prevent shrinkage and color fading.
  4. Select the gentle cycle

    If using a washing machine, place your panties and briefs in a mesh laundry bag to protect them and keep them from getting tangled with other garments. Select the gentle or delicate cycle to minimize wear and tear on the fabric.
  5. Hand wash for delicate fabrics

    For lace or silk panties, hand washing is ideal. Fill a basin with lukewarm water and a gentle detergent, and gently stir the water by hand. Rinse thoroughly and gently squeeze out excess water.
  6. Avoid fabric softeners

    Fabric softeners can reduce the elasticity of underwear, so it’s best to skip them.
  7. Air dry

    Lay your panties and briefs flat on a towel to air dry. Avoid using a tumble dryer, as the heat can weaken elastic fibers and damage delicate lace.

Remember that reading and following the care instructions on the garment’s label is essential to ensure the longevity of your bras, panties, and briefs. Following these tips will help you keep your underwear in great condition and extend its lifespan.
