Washing and Care Instructions
Lingerie care

Your lingerie will naturally look good for longer if you take careful note of the care instructions on the label. Most lingerie can be machine-washed at low temperatures (30°C). Always use the Delicates setting for this. If your machine doesn't have one, use the Easy Care setting. Always use a mild detergent and ensure the correct dosage - too much can damage the fabric, while too little won't get it properly clean. It is best to place delicate items in a special protective bag before machine-washing, closing all Velcro-type fasteners first - or hand-wash them in warm water. Please do not use fabric conditioner.    

Whites

Never wash whites and colours together - even by hand. This can cause discoloration, or turn your garments grey and dull. To bring your whites up bright and fresh again, you can occasionally use a net curtain whitener.

Drying

Never dry your lingerie directly on heaters, in direct sunlight or in the tumble-dryer. The wear and tear on fabric and lace is exacerbated by extreme heat.
