Hand washing lingerie is an important thing to learn. Panties and lingerie are intimate and delicate items of clothing that require special care to maintain their quality and prolong their lifespan. Whether you have a collection of intricate lace panties or a set of luxurious silk lingerie, knowing how to properly wash and hang them up to dry is essential in keeping them looking new and fresh.

Washing your panties and lingerie correctly not only ensures their longevity but also maintains their fit and feel against your skin. The last thing you want is to have your favorite pair of pretty panties lose their shape or become uncomfortable to wear after just a few washes. So, let’s dive into the world of proper panty and lingerie care and learn how to wash and hang them up to dry, just like Ms. Delia does!

Sort your panties and lingerie.

Handwash panties says Delia 800-601-6975Before starting the washing process, it is important to sort your panties and lingerie into different piles based on the fabric and type. This will help prevent any damage that can occur from mixing different types of materials together in the wash. For example, lace panties and silk lingerie should be washed separately from cotton or polyester blends.

Read the care labels.

Care labels are your best friend when it comes to washing any type of clothing, especially delicate ones like panties and lingerie. Take the time to read and follow the instructions on the care label to ensure that you are using the correct washing and drying methods for each specific item.

Some panties and lingerie may require hand washing, while others can be washed in the machine on a gentle cycle. Additionally, the care label will also indicate the water temperature and recommended laundry detergent to use. Following these instructions will help maintain the quality and color of your intimate garments.

Use a gentle detergent/Lingerie Wash

When it comes to washing your panties and lingerie, using a gentle detergent is key. As a sissy housewife, you need to know that harsh detergents can damage delicate fabrics and even cause them to lose their color or shape. Look for a detergent specifically designed for delicate fabrics, or opt for a mild soap or a specially made lingerie wash. Gentle is always best when it comes to detergent. 

Hand wash for delicate items.

Now, I will say it is a rule for me that panties and lingerie ALWAYS require hand washing, even if the care label says you can wash on a gentle cycle. This is particularly true for items made of delicate fabrics such as lace, silk, or satin. To hand wash your intimate garments, fill a sink or basin with lukewarm water and add a small amount of gentle detergent or lingerie wash. Gently swirl the items around in the water, making sure not to rub or wring them. After a few minutes, drain the water and rinse the items with cold water. Be careful not to twist or squeeze the fabric too hard, as this can cause damage. Instead, lightly press the excess water out of the garments with a soft, white towel.

Ms. Delia says Hang your Panties to DryHang them up to dry.

Technically, you *could* lay them flat, but I think hanging your panties and lingerie up to dry is the best and most gentle way to dry them. Make sure to use a drying rack or hanger specifically designed for delicate items to prevent them from stretching or getting misshapen. You can also hang them on a clothesline, making sure to clip them by the waistband or straps instead of the delicate fabric.

Have a designated lingerie day.

If you have a large collection of panties and lingerie like Ms. Delia does, it may be helpful to designate a specific day for washing and drying them. This will ensure that you have enough time to properly care for your intimate garments without feeling rushed or overwhelmed. I like to have a lingerie day on Sundays. It is a part of my regular Sunday morning routine! Now if you have a special occasion, like a sissy lingerie party *squeeeeeee* then you can wash your items sooner!
