The Reason You Should Wash Your Bras In A Pillowcase Is Genius

Bras are a very tricky piece of clothing, particularly washing bras is the tricky part. Let’s start off with the basics. You need to wash your bra every 3-5 wears in order to preserve its life. I mean, you probably spent a lot of money on it so why not make it last? To properly wash a bra, you should never just throw it into the washing machine with the rest of your clothes. It will get all tangled and pulled apart. The writers over at PureWow found a genius solution.

Instead of spending money on a garment bag, use something you definitely already own! A pillowcase. All you need is a rubber band and a cotton pillowcase. Hook your bras together and put them in the pillowcase. Close the open end of the pillowcase loosely with the rubber band, making sure your bras have enough room inside to move around. Throw the pillowcase in the washing machine on a delicate cycle with cold water. That’s it!

The pillowcase acts as a makeshift garment bag and it will keep your bras from getting tangled in the machine. Remember to always air dry your bras!

Don’t miss how to smooth out the lumps and dents from your bras, plus the best bras for women with small boobs!
