Malachi 3:10
“”Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.’”

How often should you wash your bra? How to maintain a long lasting bra quality.

My blog have been mostly on hygiene because of how important it is. Today, I will be sharing with you, the keys and tips to a long lasting bra maintenance and hygiene. 
Honestly, this is one hygiene a lot of ladies skip, in as much as bras are worn underneath, we should keep in mind that we need to always wash our bra. 
Thinking about it and seeing some comedy skits which was shared by some guys about ladies wearing dirty bras and how dirty looking it was, I decided to share this article about how to always keep your bra clean and maintain a high hygiene standard while doing it.
Here are ways to keep your bra long lasting  and clean.
1. The number of bras you have is the first step to this. Some ladies own just 2 bras which I can't condemn due to the fact that we all have different incomes. But owning about 4-6 bras is a good number. It helps you to be flexible and not over wear one bra until it's worn out. 

2. When purchasing a bra be sure you like the bra texture and feel on your skin. Most times we end up buying a beautiful bra that doesn't fit well. We stop wearing it and keep wearing one particular bra that feels really good and comfortable. Be sure that before you purchase any bra it is very comfortable for you to wear. This is to avoid wearing one bra over and over again even when the bra gets really dirty you keep wearing it just because it is more comfortable.

3. There are bras for different clothing (design) styles, but there are also bras that just happen to fit into every outfit so well. We tend to wear that bra more often. Instead of over wearing one bra just because it feels so comfortable, purchase that bra type/style in neutral colors that can go with a lot of clothings, so you can change and not wear same bra just because it fits/sits well with every dress.

4. Some ladies even take good care of their shoes better than their bra, just because we don't get to see it. Some ladies are in the habit of wearing a bra for months and until the corners start looking brown they don't care to wash it. Anyways, if you are in such dirty habit you need to stop it. While this depends on your lifestyle you should wash your bra after 2-3 wears. If you sweat way too much then be sure to own more bras and wash even more often to prevent body odor, bacterias and skin infections. 
5. Washing your bra is one thing and maintaining the quality is a whole entire journey. I will tell you something that you might already know.
a). The best way to wash your bra is by hand washing it with a good detergent or soap that is mild and effective. Hand washing your bra is a secure way to protect your bra from damage and tear.
I totally prefer to wash my bra with my hands because I do it better than the washing machine. I scrub specific corners and areas and also get to retain the quality.  Purchasing a quality bra is good but maintaining it is another thing all together.

b). Many of use might be very familiar with this mesh flower print laundry bag which is popularly known for the use of washing underwears and delicate clothings. It is a net like bag, with plastic chain like protectors inside. For those who do not have so much time to hand wash then always set the washing machine to mild wash. Put your bra inside the a mesh laundry wash bag then inside the washing machine. This will wash the bra and prevent it from damage. Not entirely but it is better than just directly putting the bra inside the washing machine.

c). Dry your bra in natural air and temperature, do not blow dry, this is not hygenic.

Thank you so much for reading, I will like to know how you care for your bra and if you are guilty of this then let's talk about it in the comment box below.
 Have a lovely weekend.

  1. I own a few different bras for different tops that I wear. I agree, so important to keep the bra clean even if it can't be seen.

  2. I typically wash a bra after two or three wears in winter and after one wear in summer. Maybe I wash all my clothes too often, I don't know. I often wash items after just one wear. It's probably not good for environment so I try to use an eco-friendly detergent.

  4. I typically just throw my bras with everything else and set it on 'Delicates' setting when washing, but a mesh bag sounds like a fab idea! Thank you for sharing these practical tips. <3 xoxo

  5. Having different bras to switch between is great but you're right - we all have different incomes and need to walk in each other's shoes. I am on board with buying bras that give comfort! Certain textures can cause some heavy irritation. I wash my bras often - having those laundry bags go FAR! The bra straps won't get tangled and stretched unnecessarily. Thanks for sharing!
