Lace and Lingerie

  To care for bras, slips undergarments and delicate sleepwear: unless otherwise specified on the garment care label;
  • Hand wash in warm water using laundry soap or a detergent without enzymes
  • Use a gentle plunging action and avoid rubbing
  • Do not hand wring or tumble dry
  • Dry out of direct sunlight (dry lace flat)
  • Cool iron if necessary
  • Tights and stockings often lose colour when washed. To avoid dye transferring to other garments, always wash them separately
  • When washing delicate items in the washing machine, always follow the machine manufacturers’ instructions and use the delicate or gentle cycle
  • To minimise the risk of damage to delicate items, always place them in a delicates bag


Trimmings on garments can affect how they are washed or which product is used. For example, if a garment has a leather collar the care label may say ‘Dry Clean Only’ even if the rest of the garment is washable.
