Garment Care | Bodas GARMENT CARE

All Bodas garments are especially designed to be easy to care for, long-lasting. To pro-long the life of your garments, we've provided some simple tips to ensure that your purchase remain as good as new - for as long as possible.

Labels
Our underwear is designed for every day use. Because we want it to be as comfortable as possible, we've made sure all the garment labels  can be easily removed. Simply snip the two stitches which attach the white care label to the small grey Bodas tag to prevent any itchy labels.

Stain removal
Soak or wash the item as quickly as possible, as stains are far harder to remove once they have dried. We recommend using a pre-wash stain remover; other stain removers can be placed in the washing machine along with your ordinary washing powder.

Underwear
All of the underwear in our basics ranges can be washed in the machine at either 30 degrees or on a delicates setting.

We advise that you use a mild non-biological detergent and refrain from using fabric softener to ensure the colours remain bright. If hand washing, we highly recommend that you rinse your underwear in a mild solution of white vinegar (one cap full per basin of water) instead as this will not only enhance the appearance of your garments, but also prolong their life.

Underwire and padded bras ought to be secured in a mesh laundry net before washing to protect both the wiring of your bra and your machine.

None of our underwear should be tumble dried. Many of our fabrics are light weight and dry extremely quickly by themselves.

For non basic ranges, please read the individual garment care label. Delicate items, such as the new Mousseline collection, or underwear which is embelished with a lace trim should be hand washed.  Please bear in mind that whilst our basic underwear is machine washable, as with any items of clothing, it will last longer if it is hand washed. 


Nightwear and Cotton Tees
Nightwear and Cotton Tees should both be treated in the same way as our basic underwear.


Cashmere
All cashmere items should be dry cleaned or hand washed in cold water using a specialist hand-wash liquid. Lay flat on a towel to dry.

Swimwear
Swimwear should be rinsed in clean water after each use to remove sun-protection creams, salt and swimming-pool chemicals.
