    Handwashing

    Advertisements
    Do you handwash your delicates?

    The reason I ask is because I purchased 4 new nursing bras and they all say "handwash only." Do I really need too?

    I've never handwashed bras that say handwash. Even the nursing bras I had. You might want to get a mesh bag for the washer. I throw everything in the dryer though.

    I think I have a mesh bag around here some where. I've never done it also but I don't want to mess up these bras. Most of mine don't have the wire in them, these do. More support since I'm in the F size right now.

    I hate growing boobies!

    if you really worried than just wash by hand. scrub out the bathroom sink so it's uber clean. than fill with cool water and some woolite. let them soak in there for a bit, than hand ring them out and air dry. the wire part should be fine in the washer, I always air dry them tho - never dry them in the dryer, b/c normally the ones from Victoria's Secret I don't want to get ruined (satin, silk, lace) and if there is heavy embellishments on them I always hand wash them anyhow. since they are maternity bras. I need to get some too, due in November just hand wash and air dry than?

    I don't have the delicate setting. Mine is more ofa commercial washer and dryer. Just warm and cold settings.
