We’ve all been there: “Can I really wash this?” And the answer is simply, yes, you can wash those special-occasion garments. To keep your delicates protected, try using Downy®.
First things first: Read the care label
The care label is a reminder of how to best care for your lingerie. Paying close attention to the details can help reduce the risk of damaging your negligees. Be sure to wash delicates separately from heavier and rougher fabrics.
Treat your delicates gently
You want your lingerie to keep its shape and withstand wear after multiple washes. That’s why we recommend using a detergent that avoids the physical abrasion of powder detergent, like Ariel. Pair with hypoallergenic Downy Gentle for a fabric softener that’s as gentle on your clothes as it is on your skin.
Get mesh for success
The spin cycle can be a rough time for delicates, so for added protection, stick them in a mesh bag to avoid excessive pulling and tugging.
Help protect your fabrics with Downy
Using Downy Liquid Fabric Softener will help protect fibers from getting damaged in the wash.
Air drying bras will help keep them in like-new condition. Hang them by their center to help keep their shape.
