Lucky Laundry Advice

Wednesday, March 07, 2007

Lucky magazine got a makeover recently, and I was pleased to discover the new "Lucky How-To" section, which is still shopping-oriented, but is a little more service driven. In this month's issue there was a great little piece about washing lingerie.

I'm the kind of person who actually does hand wash sweaters and underthings, but even I learned a new trick from reading the article. Lucky's expert laundress, Araks Yeramyan, a fancy-schmancy lingerie designer, recommends placing your delicate under garments into a one-gallon jar with a lid with lukewarm water and a bit of detergent. Then you seal the container and shake it until it is sudsy, mimicking the oscillation of a washing machine, without the wear and tear of machine washing. You then rinse the garments and line dry 'em. It definitely beats my soaking in a mixing bowl method any day. Thanks to Lucky for that new trick!
