Tights are fragile, but luckily we are experts! We’ll show you, step by step, how to wash your tights correctly. Follow our guide and avoid wasting your hard-earned cash!
If you want your tights to last – don’t put them in the washing machine! Some argue that if put on a low temperature / delicate cycle – blah blah blah. But, seriously, don’t do it.
Hand washing is the way to go. Yes, it is a slightly longer washing method but put on some music, do multiple pairs at once and it won’t be so bad. And while you’re at it, your undies are much better off being washed by hand, too.
It’s actually pretty simple:
Firstly, remove all rings/bracelets/bangles/hang nails – these are all fatal to a pair of tights.
Then, prepare a bowl of warm water with some gentle laundry detergent, and put your tights in to soak for 30 minutes or so.
This may be a good time for you to have a bath, too – treat yo’self.
Once soaked, rinse the tights under cool, running water until all the soap has gone (the water should run clear). Gently wring them up until there are no drips.
To dry, lay them on a (CLEAN) towel on a flat surface. Done.
