Jenny’s got the quick fix to keeping your Aerie undies just like new!

Q: What’s the best way to wash my Aerie undies?

A: Now that you’ve got new undies you love, you want to make sure they last. It’s just as important to take good care of your undies as you would your bras, swimsuits, and clothes.

For sturdy cotton undies, go ahead and throw them in the washer and dryer as you normally would. However, for lace undies, or even undies that are on the delicate side, I don’t recommend washing them like the basics. Washing items in hot water, with harsh things like jeans and towels, can destroy anything that’s a bit sensitive.

For all lace undies, I do like to give them a wash by hand either in the sink, or in the shower while you’re showering. They wash so easily and dry really quickly when you hang them on a hanger or over a doorknob. If you do want to stick with the laundry machine, do a gentle cycle once a week and put undies in with other delicate items like knits and blouses. I use cold water all the time (more environmentally friendly and laundry friendly) and I don’t use the dryer for delicates. If you notice your undies get caught around the agitator (the piece in the middle of the machine), then stick the undies in a laundry bag. Those agitators are death for delicates!
