How do I clean my cast iron enameled bras?
Most cast iron enameled bras are easy to clean. You just need to hand wash it with mild soap and water and leave it to dry in the open. However, some bras are difficult to clean because of their complicated designs and materials. Before you buy a bra, make sure that you can easily wash it.
Most bras can be hand washed by soaking it in warm soapy water. However, some bras with elastic materials may shrink and lose their shape if soaked in warm water. In such cases, you can soak these bras in a bucket containing cold water and mild soap.
After soaking the bra, scrub it gently with your hands or a brush and rinse it with clean water. Do not wring or twist the bra while washing it. You can squeeze the water out of it gently before hanging it to dry.
It is better to line dry your bras or at least hang them out in a well-ventilated place so that they dry faster and retain their shape. Sunlight can damage some of the materials used to make your bras such as elastic, and inferior fabrics may fade and tear easily.
It is always a good idea to read the care label attached to your bra before you start washing it. The care label contains detailed instructions about how to wash the bra without damaging it.
How to repair a broken bra?
Most bras can be repaired if you are careful and have a little bit of sewing skill. If not, you can take your bra to a local tailor or hire a professional tailor to fix it for you. Bras are usually made of delicate materials such as elastic, lace, satin and cotton that can easily tear. It is important that you fix these materials before they get worse or start affecting other parts of the bra.
A broken hook and eye closure or a snapped elastic are common problems that you can easily fix yourself. Here is how to do it.
Fixing broken hook and eye closures
If one of the hooks or eyes of your bra’s closure breaks, you can easily fix it at home. First of all, remove the remaining hooks and eyes to expose the broken parts.
Cut the broken parts out using sharp scissors. Be very careful not to cut the fabric.
Now take a needle and thread and stitch the side walls of the bra cup between the edge of the fabric and the cut edges of the broken hook and eye piece. Make sure you do not stitch too close to the edge to avoid the stitches from ripping out. Stitch twice or more to reinforce it.
Now try the bra on to see if the repair work was successful. Make any necessary adjustments by re-stitching if required.
Fixing snapped bra elastic
Most bras are held up by elastic that is used around the frame of the bra. Over time and with extended use, the elastic may snap and require repair. Washing the bra in hot water or leaving it in a damp state can make the elastic stretch and then suddenly shrink, causing it to break. Here is how you can repair snapped bra elastic.
First of all, remove the broken elastic from the bra. Cut the fabric covering the elastic threads using sharp scissors and then carefully pull it out.
Undo the stitches that secure the elastic to the bra. If you have stretchable elastic, you can skip this step. Otherwise, re-stitch the fabric to the bra with non-stretchable thread in the same manner as it was originally stitched.
Stretch the elastic gently and sew it back onto the bra. Make sure you do not sew it too tight or too loose. You can also use an elastic sewing kit to mend the bra. Follow the instructions provided by the kit.
Remember to thoroughly wash and rinse your bra before wearing it again to get rid of loose threads and prevent it from shrinking. Do not iron or dry clean the bra.
How to store your bras properly?
Proper bra storage is essential to prolong their life and maintain their shape and texture. Here are some tips on how to do it.
Always store your bras in a drawer, a bra bag or a box. Do not fold or hang them inside your closet as the weight of other clothes may cause them to lose their shape.
Make sure the drawer, bag or box has enough space for the bra to keep its shape. Do not stack them as this may cause them to get stuck together, resulting in ruin.
Smoother bras should be stored one way and those with embroidery and other details should be stored in the opposite direction.
Wash your bras after every 3-4 wears to prevent them from becoming dirty, losing their shape and support
