    Great lingerie is an important investment for every woman. Whether you prefer to stick to comfortable basics in nude and black or get adventurous with wild colors and lace, your foundation garments are the key to looking and feeling your best every day. So how do you keep your bras looking and feeling their best?

    The first thing to remember is that the washing machine means too much wear and tear, and the dryer means disaster for bras! Using a washing machine or dryer to clean your lingerie can significantly reduce its lifespan. After just one or two washes you could find damaged lace, changes in shape or elasticity, or even holes where the underwire can poke out.

    To keep your bras in the best possible condition wear them for no more than two days in a row and hand wash every time (full disclosure, I’m a bit of a rebel and wash after 4-5 wears). That may sound tedious, especially if you’re used to using a washing machine. But don’t worry! Eucalan delicate wash takes all the hassle out of hand washing.

    Just fill a basin with room temperature water and a capful of Eucalan, submerge your bras and squeeze gently to make sure they’re saturated. Then you can forget about them for 15 to 20 minutes while they soak. Come back after a relaxing cup of tea or a stroll around the block, and all you need to do is hang your lingerie to dry. No rinsing necessary!

    Eucalan is available in five varieties: eucalyptus, lavender, grapefruit, natural (unscented), and jasmine. Because Eucalan is made with lanolin and scented with essential oils rather than perfumes, it’s gentle on sensitive skin. Its natural, biodegradable formula means it’s gentle on the environment too.
