    How many of you girls are charged with the responsibility of doing the laundry?
    I’ll share my story. When I wash the clothes, I separate the delicates from everything.

    One load will contain t-shirts, socks, jeans & such. Another load will contain towels, sheets & pillow cases.

    FINALLY, the delicates: Bras, panties, slinky tops, dresses, etc.

    The first load, I wash in warm water, in the normal cycle.

    The second load I wash in HOT water, in the normal cycle.
    The delicates, I wash in COLD water in the (you guessed it!) DELICATE cycle.
    well, one fateful afternoon, I pulled the delicates out of the washer, & was horrified to find my favorite bra wrapped tightly around one of my full length satin nightgowns!

    I was heartbroken, but I learned something that day! When I finished the laundry, I went to Marshall’s or TJMaxx (I don’t remember) & bought some ditty bags (mesh bags).

    The next time I did the laundry (& every time since then), I put the bras in the ditty bag & washed as I normally did. I never had another bra disaster!

    Oh, & girls, ALWAYS HANG YOUR BRAS ON THE SHOWER ROD TO DRY!!!!

    Tip: if you use a pants hanger, you can hang three bras! Good luck, girls!

    Thanks ladies,

    I forgot to add the response tag. Will do this time and another (main) reason for the hand wash is putting the machine on is difficult in terms of leaving “evidence” around, remember my SO does not approve of Caty)> So I can clean up the laundry sink easier than the machine. At least “thats my story etc etc”

    Caty, when I bring a skirts, dresses, or blouses to the cleaners, & they raise an eyebrow, I would simply ask “Is there a problem?”
    I can go anywhere I want, I don’t have to put up with some backwards thinking business person.
    Thankfully, I don’t have that problem. I live in the gayest neighborhood on the planet! LOL

    I never look for trouble, but I’m no “shrinking violet” either. πŸ™‚

    @ Caty Ryan: Oh honey, I have no time for that! I don’t hand wash anything that I don’t have to! LOL The delicate cycle works fine for me. Nothing lasts forever, Cars, boyfriends, or clothes! When they wear out, you get new ones! πŸ™‚

    In terms of lingerie, sleepwear and outer wear such as blouses etc I hand wash everything. Dont want to run the risk of ruining any of my “lovelies”.

    Dresses skirts etc, go to the dry cleaners and I dont even say “the wife asked me to bring these in”. None of their business, just “clean these for me, please”.

    Which brings me to a previous post about how these days I wash everything quite frequently. Years gone by when I was “on the road” for work I neither had the time or facilities to wash Caty’s things. They would go from year to year sans a wash.

    Now I cant help myself and have to wash “dirties” as soon as I can.

     

    Anyone else in the same “laundry sink”??.

    Thanks, Marci. You wouldn’t believe how many clueless boys I see in my laundry room, washing bras with jeans & towels. They just throw everything together!

    I can just imagine them telling their girlfriend or wife “Honey, I washed the clothes!”, & she says “Oh gee, you didn’t have to do that!” (wondering what got destroyed in the wash).

    All good advice Bobbi, I separate everything and my delicate s go into a little mesh bag before anything else. I like your tip about using a clothes hanger to dry the bras.

    Hi Bobbi,

    We share the responsibility in our house, my wife knows and is accepting too, and those bags do make a difference!Β  My tights, slip and bras all go into a bag.Β  We take turns and I have learned a lot about washing delicates and separating like with like.Β  Glad to know that someone else has learned those lessons as well. -hugs, Michelle

    @ Rebekka: Back to the laundry: I do use a gentle detergent, & the delicate cycle.
    The trouble comes during the Agitation & Spin cycles.
    That’s why the Ditty bags. My bras are confined to the small space of the bag, & can’t wrap around anything. πŸ™‚

    @ Rebekka: I understand, sweetie. It makes me sad, that my sisters have to hide who they are. I hope everything works out for you, & you get to enjoy your feminine side. XOXO

    I’m sorry Bobbie!Β  I’m glad you have that kind of relationship with your wife!Β  I would use the delicate setting, and less abrasive detergent!

    I hide because I have to!

    @ Rebekka Moore: My story was not about hiding my clothes from my SO, (She knows).
    My boobs are bigger than hers! LOL
    We share clothes, & go shopping together. My story was simply a laundry tip so your bras don’t get tangled & stretched beyond saving.(the straps on my favorite bra were destroyed).

    I try to purposely do the laundry.Β  I have a special place for my girl clothes, and wash them when my SO is not around.Β  Luckily I arrive home earlier than she, and it provides an opportunity to do my girl laundry.
