hand wash ? mesh bags ? bra balls?
I have had a bad experience with washing an underwired bra in my machine.
Normally such items would be hand washed in my household but there we go, it
slipped by me and sneaked in and not only was the bra ruined, the machine
wasn't too happy either.
As I have three bra wearers in my home at present then we have a lot to hand
wash and thought maybe the mesh bags would be useful if I stopped hand
washing and used the machine. I then spotted the bra ball which seemed a
good idea but maybe quite expensive if it is one per bra. I do like the way
it stops crushing as well as keeping the wires in place - so say. I often
wear a vest with built in bra so I doubt I could fit it into the ball but
hopefully someone out there, if anyone still frequents this group, may give
me the benefit of their knowledge.
I've recently been able to buy bras with removable underwires. It is
great to be able to take them out for washing.
I have resorted to the unorthodox method of making underwires removable
by cutting a slit in the underwire casing with a seam ripper. This does
not help the longevity of the bra of course. The slit has to be tiny,
crosswise, in a location where it will not cause discomfort, and as far
from the end of the casing as is possible for removing the wire. If the
slit is too close to the end, the underwire may start poking out during
wear. If the casing has no extra length, it may not be possible.
How very interesting. I struggle to get an underwire back in sometimes. It
seems to come out of the smallest hole which promptly disappears (normally
at the underarm end) Next time I will try making a slit at the bottom.
I am surprised Phish has made no contribution to this thread,mmmm - perhaps
he doesn't wear underwires?
Perhaps your spelling has confused him. In America we spell it
u-n-d-e-r-w-a-r-e. Some of mine have wires so I can plug them into the
lighter outlet in my car (or any car) in winter. I like to wear another
pair under them so I don't have to wash them. Washing electrical
equipment can cause shorts, and shorts in your shorts can be uncomfortable.
No, my electric shorts are not speedos, if that's what you're
insinuating. I no longer wear my speedos at the park. The policeman
told me I was so darned good looking that I was making other people
