From preserving its shape to maintaining its elasticity, understanding the intricacies of bra care is key to prolonging the life of your favorite lingerie pieces. 

Let's Talk Detergent

Choosing the right type of detergent for washing bras is key in maintaining their quality and longevity. Unlike regular clothing, bras come into close contact with delicate skin and sensitive areas of the body, so washing them regularly is a must.

Opting for a gentle fabric wash specifically formulated for delicates that uses surfactants, like Forever New, ensures that your bras are thoroughly cleaned without compromising their delicate fabrics or intricate designs. By selecting the appropriate detergent, you not only safeguard the comfort and durability of your bras but also maintain their overall quality for extended wear.

Understanding Surfactants

Before we dive into the washing process, let's talk about why we perfer fabric wash with surfactants. Surfactants, like those found in Forever New detergent, are essential for effectively cleaning delicate fabrics such as bras. They work by pulling out sweat and body oils from the fibers, helping to preserve the integrity of the garment. When you don't use a surfactant, the bra is not cleansed as thoroughly and the oils left behind will start to degrade the lycra.

How to Wash Your Bras

Now that you know the importance of surfactants, let's talk about how to properly wash your bras. We recommend washing your bras every 1-2 wears to maintain hygiene and freshness. You can choose to hand wash them or use a washing machine set to the delicate cycle. However, it's crucial to place your bras in a wash bag to protect them from snagging or stretching during the washing process. Once washed, always remember to hang them to dry instead of using a dryer, as heat can damage the elastic fibers in the bras.
