Washing and Care Instructions for your Anita Lingerie
Your lingerie will look good for longer if you follow the care instructions on the label. Most lingerie can be machine-washed at low temperatures (30 degrees). Always use the Delicates setting for this. If your machine doesn't have one, use the Easy Care setting. Always use a mild detergent and ensure the correct dosage - too much can damage the fabric, while too little won't get it properly clean. It is best to place delicate items in a special protective bag before machine-washing, closing all Velcro-type fasteners first - or hand-wash them in warm water. It is not recommended to use fabric conditioner.
Never wash whites and colours together - even by hand. This can cause discoloration, or turn your garments grey and dull. To bring your whites up bright and fresh again, you can occasionally use a net curtain whitener.
Never dry your lingerie directly on heaters, in direct sunlight or in the tumble-dryer. The wear and tear on fabric and lace is exacerbated by extreme heat.
