The Sissy Lingerie Five Commandments to Cleaning & Care

The Sissy Lingerie Five Commandments

I. Thou shall wash thy panties/bra after every use.

This is in order to remove the body’s natural oils (and *AHEM* other bodily fluids’ residual cum spots.) You should always consider licking those panties clean  first -must not be wasteful subbies! Cleaning after use extends the life of the fabrics’  colors. Isn’t it more fun to get down and dirty when you start out squeaky clean? 😉 –More specifics in the Rub-A-Dub-Dub section. Follow these sissy lingerie commandments and you can expect your sexy apparel to look and smell heavenly.  While it may seem like a lot of work, it is worth it to preserve your lovely garments. Consider it honing your sissy maid/sissy wife skills since both need to know how to properly care for laundry.

II. Thou shall abstain from using fabric softeners!! The harsh chemicals can break down fragile fabric. 

 

III. Thou shall only Air-dry

Not machine dry and gently reshape the fabric when applicable (molded/underwire cups). 😉 Instead, gently shake out and squeeze excess water and place on a drying rack or on a clean towel -never ring out and twist though. Then, keep out of direct sun and heat. Next, press professionally or iron on the proper setting. Follow directions on garments labels because the manufacturers know best. See the Legend Key Chart at the end of the article. After all this extra special care, your lingerie longevity will be immensely prolonged.

 IV. Thou shall give special attention to leather and vinyl/leatherette:

Leather Care:

• Remove small stains using saddle soap
• Polish with a good quality leather polish
• Use professional dry-cleaners for more serious stains because leather is temperamental. Store your leather garment in a well-ventilated area.

 Vinyl/leatherette:
• Hand wash in warm water with a small amount of liquid detergent (I love Method from Target -it’s organic and gentle).
• Wash both the inside and outside of the garment then rinse thoroughly in cool water.
• Hang to dry inside out then turn to let the vinyl side dry & polish with of silicone spray. Avoid extreme heat and they should be stored individually in  garment bags away from other clothing to prevent color transfer.

V. Always get anything beaded, feathered, or bejeweled professionally cleaned.

RUB-A-DUB-DUB

Washing Machines are a no-go zone for corsets and under-wired garments. They can distort bras and tear the material. If the bras’ underwire pops out from wear, don’t discard them. You can reinsert & re-stitch to prevent the wires from coming out again However, this is a delicate process and going to the tailor might be the best option if needed.

In summary, as long as there is nothing on your item that contradicts the indications from commandment V., and it doesn’t have leatherette, vinyl, or underwire/boning, you can typically use a washing machine on the delicate cycle in a zippered washing satchel in cool to lukewarm water because the washing satchel will protect fragile fabric so long as is labeled as being able to withstand the washing machine.

TOO HOT TO HANDLE:

Hot water can damage delicate fabrics such as lace, embroidery, elastics and bindings therefore, be mindful when selecting this setting and always inspect items for stains prior to using.
• Wash dark, lights/whites and colored fabrics separately because it will prevent color bleeding.
• Soak the garment if need be with no-rinse soap but be careful with pre-wash stain remover (if needed). It’s always wise to test the fiber when using a new fabric cleanser on an inside patch or seam first.
*Hosiery & stockings can be soaked in a wash basin with mild soap or you can also typically clean them in a zippered laundry bag on the delicate cycle with cool water and hung over a towel to dry.
