How-to (Tricks)

Washing Lingerie

Lucky How-To
Araks Yeramyan designs the elegant Araks line of underthings—and has developed a neat trick for getting the gentlest wash.
You'll need a one-gallon glass jar and detergent suitable for fine fabrics. "I prefer ones with plant-based ingredients, like Ecover Delicate Wash," she says.

Fill the jar three-quarters to the top with lukewarm water, then add half a capful of detergent.

Add up to five pieces of lingerie and shake until sudsy. "Essentially, you're re-creating the same motion as a washing machine, but this is far gentler," Yeramyan explains. Then rinse garments until water runs clear and hang them dry.
