What do you wash your bras, panties & lingerie in ?

I bought new knickers yesterday and saw that the store I bought them at sells a special wash for lingerie. It was over priced so I bought Woolite instead.. What do you use ?

  • Use a lingerie/intimates bag and woolite on the gentle cycle. They make a round one just for bras! Just be sure you buy them with a good zipper that doesn't pop open.

  • I use the same detergent for everything else I wash. The only thing is with my bra I only have 1 actual bra. I have sports bras, but don't like them lol. So I only have 1 bra I wear now in the winter I will go every few days before washing it, but in the summer I was it almost every night and instead it is the only one I have I throw it in the bath with me and wash it with my bath soap and then I will hang it on the shower rod to dry. But if I have to wash an outfit if I am behind in laundry lol I will wash my bra in the washer with my clothes lol

  • I usually use Soap Nuts, but sometimes I forget and just use my regular detergent. Before I discovered Soap Nuts, I used Woolite for them.
