Care

January 4, 2012 under

I keep my hosiery in original packaging.

Hosiery is expensive, so let us make this garment last.

WASHING HOSIERY – BY HAND OR IN A MESH BAG

Hand washing it of course is recommended, but I due to my time shortage, I usually just zip it up in a washing bag and just put it in the washing machine on cold wash.   No dryer!  I just hang mine to dry.  Some say that there is special hosiery soap, but I never used it myself.

WEAR GLOVES OR AT LEAST USE HAND LOTION

Not everybody has patience to wear gloves when putting on pantyhose, so I at least recommend to put lotion on your hands first to eliminate any dry skin.  Don’t rush, take your time.

KEEPING IT NEATLY ORGANIZED

I prefer to keep my hosiery in original packaging.  It makes it easy to find a specific style and it keeps from looking like a mess.  For me personally it means that I’ll wear it more often if it is stored in an organized manner.  It also means that I will remember which ones were the best ones and I’ll be able to get more of that kind in the future.

REPAIRING THE RUNS

I prefer to stitch runs in my pantyhose.

Some people put nail polish on the runs.  I do that too, but I still prefer to stitch the run.  In my opinion it looks neater this way.  Usually I sit down some time on the weekend and stitch several pairs at once.

I love hosiery and I try to do what I can to prolong its life.  You will find more care tips in the “practical” section of this blog.  Please don’t forget that this blog only exists because of your contributions.
