Bra washing.. awful? Not having time and especially don't feel like it? However, it is a good idea to make yourself a clear routine about washing your bra; when you have the right detergent and remember these tips, washing your bra will happen in the blink of an eye! As a detergent, you should choose a gentle and environmentally friendly liquid detergent for hand washing.

It is good to wash your bra often and thoroughly enough to keep their materials good and to last as long as possible. It is recommended to wash the bra after about 2-3 days of use. During use, bra accumulate sweat and skin grease, which clog the fibers of the fabric, and the elasticity of the materials among other things, can suffer if the washing interval of the bras tends to wander too long.

The bra does not necessarily need machine washing. It is most of the times enough to hand wash them in warm detergent water, gently squeezing and focusing on the most soiled areas. The washing machine only provides unnecessary rotation and potentially reduces the life of your bra by consuming materials unnecessarily. However, if you wash your bra in the washing machine, be sure to use one designed for it laundry bags  and wash the bra in a loose machine. As said before, when you wash your bra often enough, a light and gentle wash is enough.

This way, the bra does not stretch and stays beautifully in shape. It is also good to remember to hand out the cups neatly to their intended shape.
