Use a Laundry Bag When Washing Bras

I hate it when you take out your laundry, sift through to find your bras and they're all tangled up and slightly distorted. How are they supposed to look good on you when they're like that after washing them? They don't look so hot after a scary run in the washer to tell the truth. So then how do you prevent the tangling and distorting? You have to wash your bras so how to you prevent the not-so-good from happening? The answer is simple: use a laundry bag.

A laundry bag, also known as a lingerie bag, comes in pretty dang handy when washing delicates, such as lingerie and other related items. The laundry bag is a mesh bag that zips and you can find it at any general store like Target, Wal-Mart, or more specialized places like Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

With the lingerie bags it's really easy—just place whatever you need to (your bras, nylons, or other delicates) into the bag and then throw it in with the rest of your laundry. Laundry bags are really simple and don't take any extra effort or time on your part besides zipping the zipper.

The great part about lingerie bags is that you can wash them and their contents with the rest of your laundry. When you wash your bras in the laundry bag you don't have to deal with tangled straps, the hooks snagging on other bits of laundry, and other sundry laundry problems. Laundry bags solve the two greatest bra-washing problems: the tangling of bras in the wash and the consequent distorting of said bra. With the laundry bag you don't have to worry about any of that!

So if you invest in an inexpensive laundry bag you'll greatly simplify your life and better preserve your bras. Who wants rumpled, tangled bras? That's right—nobody. The solution: buy a lingerie bag for yourself and make life easier!
