I am a busy married mother of 4 children and 2 dogs. I have a new baby and it spans all the way up to a 14 year old. Needless to say we are busy from being a taxi to cleaning spit up. :) I love it. My question is to anyone that wears a bra. It says on most bra tags to hand wash!! Hand wash?? Who has time to hand wash? How do you wash your bra?

I hand wash all my bras. I used to throw them into the washing machine, which I greatly regret now. It had caused some deformities in my bras and I couldn't use them anymore.:( I don't know the proper way of hand washing bras. A friend taught me to use a clean brush for cleaning the straps, underwire, and pads. I'm not sure though if you could use detergent, since it's harsh and may cause your bras to lose their elasticity. I use mild shampoo instead. If hand washing your bras is really impossible, why don't you buy a net wash bag where you can put in your bras. The bag helps protect your bras from damage while inside the washing machine. They're available on Amazon.

Hand wash it. Have time. I suggest that you have enough say a dozen, the first 6 or 7 days of earing it soak in tub with detergent, stay overnight, then do some rinsing the following day and presto youve finished handwashing the pairs. While you still have pairs to use while the one you just washed will dry as soon as you finished it all. Just that easy.

I just throw mine in the washer. I use the gentle setting and make sure that nothing else in the load will snag it. Seems to work just fine for me!

Yes, it's hand wash. You can throw it with the other clothes in the washing machine but either it'll come out broken, or it'll last just a few washes. You definitely have to hand wash it. I'm not sure how you hand wash, but that doesn't require more time than soaping your hands.
