The Sheer Facts about Hosiery

Washing and Care

Care of your hosiery is a simple equation: if you take good care of these garments, they’ll last longer.

  • Wash pantyhose gently by hand, using a mild detergent that doesn’t contain chlorine bleach, which will remove colours and damage fibres. If you prefer the washing machine, place them in a hosiery bag or pillowcase and wash on the gentle cycle with a mild detergent.
  • To dry, place one or two pairs of pantyhose on a towel, roll up and squeeze towel gently. This eliminates stretching when hanging hosiery to dry. Never attempt to dry pantyhose in the dryer.
