You're washing your bras wrong – here's how to stop the wires from falling out

SURELY, there's no worse feeling than your go-to bra becoming a deformed mess.

Mbali Nhlapho, owner of Sisters at Work cleaning service, is no stranger to this sentiment and keyed viewers in on how to increase the longevity of their bras.


On her TikTok, Nhlapho started by showcasing a bra that was washed in the washing machine without proper care as a clear example of what not to do.

The damaged, "off-shape" bra had the underwire poking out through the corner, every ladies' worst nightmare.

The laundry whizz then detailed how to properly wash your bra to ensure the wires don't pierce the fabric and poke through.

In order to get your bras to last longer, and always be in good shape, she suggested putting your bra in a laundry bag or pillowcase before washing.

She then slipped her arm out of the strap so that it was positioned under her armpit and across the width of her chest.

The steps were then repeated with the second strap.

Both straps now tightly across the front of her chest, Hannah lifted them up and placed them over the top of the cups to pin them down and stop them from moving about.
