The best way to keep your maternity bras in good condition.(I am sure you all know this but lets re-fresh your busy minds.)
Always fasten the hooks on the bra before washing. This will prevent them catching on trim or on other clothes and place them in a lingerie bag.
Place the bra in a lingerie bag if you machine-wash it.
Wash your bra in cool water on the delicate cycle, using a mild detergent.
Always air dry your bra after washing
If you are nursing, breast milk generally does not stain. If it does, pre-treat the nursing bra with an enzyme-containing product such as Preen, which will dissolve the protein in the milk stain. Then wash as usual.
Machine washing under wire bras can result in the wire coming out and lodging in your washing machine. Which can be very expensive to repair!! Therefore if you machine wash these bras, make sure they're inside a lingerie bag.
Using harsh detergents on a bra is not only bad for the bra - it may cause irritation around your nipples or skin
For best results, do not put a bra in the dryer.
My customer washed her bra in her front loader with nappy sand. This has taken the colour our and the strap snapped. Please don’t do this to your Hot Milk Bras.
