Sunday November 27, 2016 - Bra cleaning

I remember growing up and wishing I had breasts and needed a bra. Well 50 years later, here I am. But now I need to learn how to care for my bras.

I have been trying to figure out the best way to clean my bras and how long to wear bras before cleaning them. I have been putting them in the washing machine. But after coming out of the dryer, they are all wrapped up with other clothes. Also, as I move to a larger cup bra and nicer bras, I am not sure the washer and dryer are best.

I found a video on hand washing your bra and another video on using the washing machine. I did learn to stop putting my bras in the dryer.




  1. Some bras can be hand washed (Woolite is good) and some are OK in the washer but never put your bras in the dryer. My wife and I always hang dry ours.

  2. I will try Woolite and definitely hang them up to dry.

  3. The easiest method I have found is to machine wash your delicates with your other laundry in a mesh laundry bag designed for delicates and then hang them up to dry. Don't put them in the dryer. It may not ideal for some intimate items, but generally it is a safe and efficient way of accomplishing the task.

  4. I swear by the mesh laundry bags. But be careful, as some bras won't stand up to agitation - even in the mesh bag.

  5. Mesh bag it is. I saw some at the dollar stores. I am going to buy some and try it.
