Removing Bloodstains in Underwear
This week we've partnered with green period care brand &Sisters, who want to empower women and ensure no-one is held back by their period. &Sisters is on a mission to reimagine the future of female health, staring with safe, sustainable and beautifully designed period products. The business is built on being better for our bodies, better for the planet, and better for our sisters.
From time to time, we've all experienced a blood stain on our pants, but no worries, it's totally normal - here's how to tackle them.
Firstly, get to the stain as quickly as possible, fresh stains will lift much more easily than dried on stains.
Our Tough Love Stain Removal is the ultimate partner for any stain you can throw at it, and it won't fade colour-fast fabrics!
How to Machine Wash Underwear
For everyday underwear made from cotton or manmade fibres, check the care label but these are usually suited to regular machine washing. However there are a few tips you can use to reduce wear and tear and keep them looking good for longer.
1) Separate colours during washing AND drying - this is an obvious one but black + white = grey! Better to wash all white underwear together with other white items, and then ideally dry them in a sunny spot to help keep them white. Wash colours together and dry away from sunlight to prevent fading.
2) Use a protective laundry bag - keep your underwear from snagging, stretching and getting tangled with other garments by popping them in a mesh or microfibre laundry bag.
3) Wash at 30 or 40 degrees - usually we encourage 30 degree washing at standard, but with underwear, the possibility of greater soiling means that sometimes 40 degrees will be more suitable.
4) Make sure stains are gone, then air dry - drying can set the stain into a fabric. We always recommend air drying any laundry, as the tumble dryer is bad for the planet and for your clothes. This is especially true for your delicates.
