  • Lingerie Care Tips

    • Always read and follow care instructions on the label.
    • Use a lingerie wash bag when washing underwear in a machine.
    • Hand wash any bra with an underwire - wires can be bent, damaged or broken or may even come out in the washing machine.
    • Wash lingerie frequently to keep it in tip-top condition - perspiration, perfumes and body lotions can all mark the fabric and regular washing minimises the risk.
    • When hand washing always choose a washing liquid or powder specially made for delicate fabrics - make sure all powder is dissolved before putting garments in the water.
    • Don't leave lingerie to soak for more than five minutes.
    • Wash darker colours separately.
    • Don't exceed the recommended washing temperature - remember the latest products wash just as well at 40°C, often even at 30°C.
    • Dry lingerie away from direct heat such as radiators, fires and even hot sunshine otherwise they may discolour, especially whites/light colours.
    • Avoid catching delicate fabrics and laces with clothes pegs - use the washing label to peg bras and pants to the line.
    • Do not tumble dry lingerie unless the care label provides specific instructions.

  • Swimwear Care Tips

    • Swimwear needs extra special care to enjoy a longer life - especially if used regularly in a chlorinated pool. All the washing advice for lingerie applies, but swimwear often faces greater punishment at the beach or pool.
    • Always rinse swimwear in fresh, tepid water as soon as possible - immediately is best - after every wear.
    • Follow this, again as soon as possible, with a hand wash in a gentle detergent and a very thorough rinse.
    • Never leave your swimwear wrapped up in a damp towel!
    • If you want your swimsuit or bikini to dry extra-fast, roll it gently in a dry towel to soak up excess water, then hang away from direct heat.
    • Never tumble dry or iron swimwear.
    • Remember pool chemicals, perfumes, cosmetics and sun oils and creams could damage and discolour swimwear, especially designs using elastane.
    • Try the peg-the-label trick to avoid catching the fabric - or hang your swimwear to dry on a clothes hanger for maximum airing.
