We recently shared our grooming secrets (or lack thereof), with you. We asked our staffers to tell when the last time they tweezed or waxed their eyebrows.
NC Mom said: "Every night, so that I have a fresh one for the next morning!" While, Tonya said: "If the dog would refrain from eating them, I'd probably be able to rotate them/wash them a lot more than what I do, but I think I only have three left at this point and laundry piled up to the rafters."
Here's what our staffers had to say:
|I'd guess about once a month, if that? I alternate between two (sometimes swapping in the strapless) in my rotation. Scary!|
|I don't remember. I tend to put it in the wash and then pull it out the next day. Meaning: I put it in the laundry basket then pull it out before washing it.|
|I wash my bras all the time I have about six in rotation. The only problem is I don't hand wash them AND I put them in the dryer -- so most of them are in tatters -- I am constantly replacing bras. I believe over my lifetime I have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on bras -- and I don't even buy expensive ones!|
|I probably do it like once a month or whenever I feel like they're not clean when I wear them.|
|I rotate about five bras and they probably get washed about once every two weeks. So that means that I wear them like two - three times and then they get washed.|
|It's embarrassing but I have two bras (that fit me well) in my rotation. I probably wash them once a month. Maybe... By hand though, and hang them out to dry. Still, that's probably pretty gross.|
|Maybe a few days ago. I have three or four in rotation and I just wash them whenever my hubby does the laundry.|
|Eek. Is it bad that it's only once a week?|
|Three years. Since my mastectomy/reconstruction, I haven't worn one.
Talk about perks!
So how often should we be washing our bras? Well, according to Brawise.com (a website dedicated to all things bra), women should wash their bras every other time they wear them. Depending on the fabric and color of the bra, this schedule changes with different pieces. When it comes to wash and care, the experts at Victoria Secret recommend hand washing your bra in cold water with a lingerie-safe detergent. They also believe air drying is the best possible way to keep your bras beautiful. Machine drying can only harm your bra's delicate details.
