How to wash your bra

Throwing your bra in with the rest of your wash without taking proper care can be a recipe for disaster. But with these tips and Downy Fabric Conditioner, you can keep your bras at their absolute best.

Read the care tag

Need help reading those symbols on the tag? We’ve created the ultimate guide to deciphering your delicates and their care labels.

Use fabric conditioner for basic bras

For your basic bras, we recommend using Liqiud Fabric Conditioner to help protect them from getting damaged in the wash.

Use Fresh Protect for sports bras

Your favorite sports bra is probably made of synthetic fibers, and these types of fabrics are odor magnets. Downy Fresh Protect will actively neutralize odors—it’s like deodorant for your clothes!

Line dry

Air drying bras will help keep them in like-new condition. Hang them by their center to help keep their shape.

Using the dryer? Use a mesh bag

The spin cycle can be a rough time for delicates, so for added protection, stick them in a mesh bag to avoid excessive pulling and tugging.
