With so many kinds of clothes, underwear is our “closest partner”! When we discuss the comfort of underwear, we usually talk about whether the steel ring is tight, whether the shoulder straps will slide down, and whether the bottom is tight or not, but we rarely discuss the fabric.

I believe that everyone is familiar with the excellent properties of cotton fabrics. In addition to being moisture-wicking and highly comfortable, , cotton fabric has no irritation in contact with skin, safe and healthy. Pure cotton is generally used on the inside of bra cups.

How to clean underwear correctly
Because the fabric of underwear is relatively soft and delicate, it is recommended to use special detergent and wash it in warm or cold water below 30 degrees.
The inside of the cup should be cleaned by “making fists and pressing”, and rubbing the particularly dirty areas with your hands (lace/embroidery cannot be cleaned by rubbing each other).
The back of the underwear buckle can temporarily serve as a brush, or you can prepare a soft small toothbrush and just brush lightly.
If your underwear can be machine washed, it is also best to use a special cleaning bag for underwear. It is recommended that before cleaning, apply special stain remover for underwear to the dirty parts and soak it for a while.
