Lingerie Care & Cleaning Instructions

Lingerie care will help preserve your newly purchased clothing. We have listed some instructions which will help eliminate the worries of caring for your lingerie. You can then relax and enjoy your wonderful investment! It is important to remember that intimate apparel requires a little “tender loving care” along the way in order to make it last.

How to Clean Lingerie

We recommend using a specially designed lingerie wash if possible. One such product is Eucalan for intimate apparel. If you do not have a lingerie wash, you can use a gentle laundry detergent. Please be sure to also refer to the care label on all of your intimate apparel. We highly recommend hand washing over the rough agitation of the washing machine. Should you use the washing machine please use tepid water on the delicate cycle. One very important tip with lingerie care, always air dry. Remember, how long an item lasts, really depends on how you care for it! Here is information on how to use Eucalan and it also has helpful information even if not using this product.

How To Use Eucalan

Before you begin: If this is the first time you have washed the article and the article contains more than one color, ensure it is color fast before immersing in water. To test for color fast: dampen white 100% cotton cloth and press against colored area. If color transfers on to the white cloth, the article is not colorfast and should not be immersed in water. If it is immersed, the colors may run into one another. Lingerie care is critical in ensuring your clothing last to the fullest lifespan possible.

Handwashing Lingerie

  1. Add Eucalan* to basin.
  2. Fill basin with tepid water.
  3. Insert article and soak for 15 min. (minimum).

Cleaning Your Lingerie

The word LINGERIE encompasses a lot of different items, all very delicate, including bras, cami’s, hosiery, medical hosiery, shapewear, costumes and panties to name a few. Eucalan’s gentle no rinse formula is fantastic for caring for all your lingerie. Choose CALMING LAVENDER or ENERGIZING GRAPEFRUIT scents with the added bonus that these essential oils have antiseptic properties, which are beneficial for garments that lie close to the skin.

Cleaning Your Bra

It is recommended that bras should be washed after each wear to keep them clean and help them maintain their shape. Washing does not deteriorate bras: body oils, lotions and potions, and simply wearing your bra contributes to fibre wear and tear. Washing keeps fibres clean and helps elastic maintain its original tension.

• Follow directions for hand wash preferrably. If you choose to machine wash, ensure fasteners are fastened and place bra in a mesh laundry bag or pillow case to help protect it from other garments.

Cleaning Hosiery

  1. Follow directions for hand wash.
  2. Hang hosiery to dry.
  3. If you need to launder in a machine, place hosiery in a mesh laundry bag or pillow case and be sure that it is separate from items with clasps or velcro.

Cleaning Camis & Slips

All fibres from silk to rayon or polyester can be washed safely with Eucalan.

  1. Follow directions for hand wash.
  2. Hang to dry.
