We know how tricky it can be to care for delicates. From lingerie and other items labeled “dry clean” to silk blouses and scarves, this special formula removes perspiration, body oils, and stains while cleaning and preserving fabrics. Ideal for silk, synthetics, spandex, polyester, nylon, rayon, acetate, and blends. Why dry clean when you can provide better care for your delicates at home, minus the dry cleaning chemicals and extra cost?
Delicate Wash is The Laundress' formula designed for “delicate laundry.”
Delicates are considered to be items containing silk or silk-like synthetics, embellishment (such as lace, hardware, embroidery, beading, and sequins), or intimates such as underwear, bras, lingerie, and hosiery.
Silk is commonly the most washable delicate; however, there are various synthetics that are made to look and perform like silk, such as acetate, rayon, Lycra, lyocell, Modal, spandex, and acrylic.
We recommend washing silk in cool or warm water. If machine washing, use a delicate washing cycle and insert item in a Mesh Washing Bag (optional). If handwashing, do not soak silk longer than 30 minutes. Lay flat or hang to dry. Never put silk in the dryer.
Most items labeled “dry clean” are generally launderable. Read the care label to determine the fabric content and washability. When in doubt, test.
When an item is labeled “dry clean only,” the best way to care for it between cleanings is to treat with Delicate Spray along with a good steamer for freshening and finishing.
