Getting New Moms Adjusted to Mommyhood One Step at a Time

Many of you may already be familiar with the incredible time-saver that is the delicates bag. You just put your lingerie, hosiery, and that one shirt that says "hand wash" but that you're too lazy to really hand-wash all in the bag, zip it up, and wash it cold with your other stuff. It's not as good for your delicates as the lavender-oil-and-potpourri treatment, but it's way faster — and it's a lot better than just tossing them into the machine naked. I've been a devotee of the bag approach for years, but my life got way better when I discovered the Tide Wash Bag.

A friend recommended the ol' TWB to me in grad school, when she noticed my sad delicates bag full of giant holes that bras would occasionally slip through. "Oh yeah," I said, "that's just what happens." Not to the TWB, she explained, and she's right — this motherfucker is durable. I've had it for years, and it has yet to spring a bra-leak despite hundreds (thousands?) of washes. It also dries quickly — you can pretty much take it out of the machine, pull your delicates out, and put it right back in a drawer. Someday perhaps I will be the kind of person who treats her bras with the TLC they deserve. Until then, the Tide Wash Bag limits the consequences of my laziness. Bonus: it is under $4.

I own one and I use it for all my bras as those underwires really can break through if not in a protective mesh. =)
