How to Handwash Delicates

Step 1

Fill the sink or other basin with lukewarm water (or the temperature indicated on the fabric care label).

Step 2

Mix approximately 1 teaspoon of mild detergent into the water.

Step 3

Submerge the item and knead it gently with your hands for several minutes.

Step 4

Drain the soapy water and refill the basin with clean water, kneading the fabric again. Repeat this step until no soap remains in the fabric.

Step 5

Drain the basin and gently press any excess water from the fabric. Do not wring the material.

Step 6

Lay the item flat on a dry towel, then roll the two together, squeezing the towel gently.

Step 7

Spread the fabric out flat on a second towel and allow it to air dry.
