Here’s a new spin on wash­ing un­der­wear

Central and North Burnett Times - - WEEKEND - — Vanessa Brown, news.com.au

‘‘ Start the wash­ing process by fill­ing a salad spin­ner with wa­ter and a small amount of gen­tle laun­dry de­ter­gent.

WITH win­ter well and truly here, get­ting out­side in to the cold to hang out the wash­ing loses all ap­peal.

For those with a dryer, undies, socks and tow­els go back into a ma­chine, com­ing out warm and ready to use within an hour.

But ac­cord­ing to a video by overseas de­ter­gent com­pany Woo­lite, there’s a faster and more ef­fec­tive way to clean and dry your favourite pieces of lin­gerie us­ing an item found in the kitchen.

Ac­cord­ing to the clip, start the wash­ing process by fill­ing a salad spin­ner with wa­ter and a small amount of gen­tle laun­dry de­ter­gent.

Then, drop in your bras and start spin­ning for two min­utes. Re­move the soapy wa­ter and re­place with clean wa­ter for the rinse phase. Again, give your bras a good spin for two min­utes. Fi­nally, drain the wa­ter and leave your bras in place.

Give your gar­ment an­other spin for two min­utes, and it should come out rel­a­tively dry.

And if your gar­ments still look a lit­tle old after wash­ing, try ad­ding two tea­spoons of white dis­tilled vine­gar be­fore you start wash­ing.

Put your bra or un­der­wear in and soak for 20 min­utes, then pro­ceed with the rest of the process. Just be sure you’ve washed out all the vine­gar.

As for pilled or old look­ing bra straps, try mix­ing a few ta­ble­spoons of bak­ing soda with wa­ter to cre­ate a paste.

Rub the paste into the straps and then spin in cold wa­ter for a few min­utes.

This paste can also be used as a pre­wash treat­ment for sweat and de­odor­ant stains.
