The way to care for the stockings depends on it. Nylon and nylon, silk, cotton, flesh-colored and dark ‒ they all require a different approach. Wash stockings mainly by hand, but if you buy a special net bag for delicate items or bowl for washing, can be washed in the machine with mild Laundry facility, keeping the temperature regime.
If the stockings are made of nylon or nylon, you need to wash them each time after donning. Pot destroys the tissue. Nylon loves water, even if you don't wear these stockings, wet them from time to time, and new ones be sure to wash before first wearing. Wash them in cool soapy water, then rinse well so the soap didn't leave streaks, and the lye can eat away at the fabric.
After washing, the stockings wrap in a terrycloth towel, which will absorb the remaining water. Can use this recipe: rinse add the water a tablespoon of vinegar or a teaspoon of alum to 1 quart of water. Stockings will last longer and the color will retain their saturation.
Silk stockings wash in warm water quality and soap. Do not RUB and do not remove. Rinse in water of the same temperature, and washed. After rinsing, wrap in a towel, squeeze dry and spread on a dry towel until dry.
Colored cotton stockings soak in cold salted water for 15 minutes, then wash with soap inside out. It is necessary to rinse very thoroughly to wash all the soap residue. Can add a few drops of vinegar or ammonia to preserve color. So wash only stocking dark shades, but if they are light, just with soap and water.
In recent years, have become extremely popular stockings silicone stickers. They require special care. Wash them in warm water, without wetting the silicone rubber. After rinsing squeeze them in a towel and dry at room temperature, away from heating elements.
