Should you wash your bra?
The stickiness of the hypoallergenic medical grade adhesives of the bra cups will cause flakes of your skin or even hair to be stuck to it. This is why it is very important to wash the bra cups after each wear. As the bra is designed to last multiple wears, it is highly advisable to wash your bra cups!
How to wash the bra?
Wash your adhesive bra with tap water and mild soap after each use. It is advisable not to use alcohol, bleach or other cleaning solutions. Hold the cups under a running tap and use the palm of your hand to clean the cups in a circular motion. Do not machine wash or soak in water . Shake off excess water and air dry by leaving the adhesive facing up.
Do not use your fingernails or a brush to scratch over the surface as this will permanently damage the adhesive of the bra cups. Air dry only. Once it is air dried, cover the bra with a lid to prevent any dust or fibres in the air from settling onto the bra cup and affecting its effectiveness.
What can affect my bra?
Moisture from creams, lotions and oils on your body will repel the adhesiveness of the stick on bra, and affect the effectiveness of the adhesives of your stick on bra. Furthermore, the accumulated moisture on the cups will affect the stickiness of the cups unless you properly get rid of it. If you forgot you had cream on, and apply the cups, rinse the adhesive immediately and let the cups air dry.
Fibres from wool garments may stick to the side of cups and affect the adhesiveness of the cups. However, unlike the moisture from lotions and oils, these fibres are harder to remove. Dust is the other culprit that can affect the adhesive on the cups. Tiny dust particles are hard to wash off, hence always cover the adhesive with plastic covers once you wash the bra. If you are in the habit of leaving your bra lying around, uncovered after washing, it is highly likely that your bra will not last long. If you’ve lost the covers, use a bit of cling film to cover the cups.
