7 tips to keep your knickers fresh
Washing your knickers may seem pretty straightforward, but how do you actually wash your knickers? Like most of us you probably, haven't put a lot of thought into it. And why on earth would you? You have a life—and that doesn’t include worrying about your knickers?
Personally I am the worst washer of any clothes and usually don’t think twice before doing the washing. Everything gets thrown in the same load on whatever setting, I am guessing the default one. So what’s wrong with that? Washing your Nat'v Basics with the rest of your laundry will ultimately cause them to wear out quickly which includes tears, fraying, fading, and stretching.
Here are some tips on how to care and prolong the life of your nat'v knickers.
Tip 1: Treat me delicately!
Place your Cheeky Gs, Classics and pre-rinsed Comforts inside a delicates wash bag, with similar colours.
Pre-rinse your leak proof Comforts in cold water until the water runs clear.
Tip 2: Warm and gentle wash.
Select a gentle cycle, not too hot, not too cold, just right.
Tip 3: Mild detergent, no harsh chemicals.
Use a colour safe, mild detergent. Do not bleach or use fabric softener.
Tip 4: Leave me hanging!
Hang me on the line to dry in the shade.
Tip 5: Do not tumble dry.
Do not tumble dry or take me to the dry cleaners.
Tip 6: Do not iron.
No ironing required here.
Tip 7: Keep me trimmed.
If any loose threads appear, trim them to keep me tidy and avoid threads catching.
So it’s pretty straightforward!
