Easy Way to Wash Your Delicates


If you have a batch of small, lacy delicates…or even panty hose or tights that you don’t want to bother to wash by hand and you don’t want beat up by the washing machine…don’t buy a special laundry bag! Use this instead…

If you don’t have a zippered laundry bag made for delicates, this is a good alternative. Put your tights or small delicates that need to be washed in the cut-off leg of an old, unusable pair of panty hose (so if you get a bad run in your hose, don’t throw them away!). Be sure to knot the top to keep your delicate little bits from falling out and flailing around while in the washing machine.
