Was;hing things like bras, panties, special blouses, lingerie etc.

How to:

  1. Shampoo is great for washing delicates. Delicates are things like bras, panties, lingerie, special blouses and anything that you want to hand wash. It easily removes dirt and oily soil from clothes gently but effectively.
  2. Fill a sink or a basin with warm/cool water and squeeze in a good squeeze of shampoo. Don’t use medicated shampoo for this purpose.
  3. Gently squeeze the solution through the garment and then rinse. Be careful not to wring the fabric, but instead gently squeeze it to remove water.
  4. Dry by laying the garment flat or hanging to dry.
  5. Make sure you always read and follow the care label before laundering any fabric.

Warnings & Cautions:

This method will work for most hand washables. Always check care labels on garments for additional laundry advice Do not wring delicate fabrics. Squeeze gently to remove water.

Linda Says:

For ring-around-the- collar or cuffs in blouses, work in a little undiluted shampoo.

Why It Works:

Shampoo is meant to remove oily film from clothes. It works equally well on washable fabrics without damaging finer fabrics.
