A month or so ago, I bought some new unmentionables and the saleswoman admonished me for washing my previous ones in the washing machine.
"But I use a little lingerie bag," I protested.
"That doesn't matter! Always launder lingerie by hand with a gentle soap and hand to dry!" she replied.
Ever since then, I have obediently been washing these delicate things in a bowl of warm soapy water. I've been using just a little dab of either hand soap or dish soap to clean them. In the above case, Mrs. Meyers peony dish soap did the trick.
