Congratulations are needed, you have successfully washed your Nuudiis. Now, it is time for the more daunting task, figuring out how to wash bras. More importantly, how to properly wash a bra. Does figuring out how to wash bras properly include how to hand wash bras? Or, are you supposed to opt out of hand washing altogether and try to figure out how to wash bras in a washing machine? In order to figure out what route you are taking, machine washing vs. hand washing, you must first figure out what is needed for both methods. Sticking on trend with your Nuudiis, let's dive into how to wash bras in the washing machine!

It’s time to gather your materials. Unlike Nuudii, traditional bras do not come with a nifty wash bag. Due to this, you are going to need to start digging around your laundry room in an attempt to find a lingerie bag. After minutes that felt like hours you locate your wash bag, now it is time to figure out the best detergent for bras. Although any liquid detergent is fine, it is best to use one on the mild end. Once the detergent has been located and the bras are enclosed in a wash bag, you have the go ahead to throw them in the washer. Beware, your bras should only be washed with a small load of laundry and on a delicate cycle.

Before we get into the daunting drying process lets review how to hand wash bras, after all, this is how to properly wash a bra. There is no denying that in order to extend your bra's shelf life the best way to wash bras is by hand. Let’s gather our supplies! First things first, you're going to need to find an empty sink. From there, you're going to fill your sink up with about a gallon of cool water, add your detergent and dump your bras in to soak. Once your bras have been soaking for roughly 15 minutes you are going to rinse them under cool water to get all the soapy suds out. Easy enough right? Unless of course they have tons of padding and love to soak up those suds UGH!

After outlining all your how to wash bras options you opt in to machine washing them. Although you know this is not the best way to wash bras, you decide you do not want to spend the time hand washing bras in the sink, after all, you still need to deal with drying them! Unlike Nuudii, bras can not, nor should not be dried in a dryer, instead, they need to be air dried. Machine drying your bras will damage and distort not only the underwire but also the structure of the cups themselves,(yes structure! and you know how much we dislike structure, or rules for that matter!). Due to this, you now need to go locate some realm of clothespins and maybe even a drying rack. Not only that, you need to find the space to hang up your bras on full display while you wait for them to dry. In addition to taking up space, you just added on several hours to this laundry process. You take a look at the clock, touch your damp bra and realize that you are not going to be able to wear that padded bra to date-night tonight.

Luckily, since Nuudii System is completely hardware free you don't need to worry about any of this. Ultra lightweight and designed with absolutely no padding at all, your Nuudii will dry within minutes. Here’s a secret, a few of us have even blowed Nuudii dry with a blow dryer on a light setting. Not only that, but Nuudiis moisture wicking fabrics help to eliminate the dreaded boob sweat. Our innovation allows you to wash your boobature less frequently then you would traditional bulky bras.
