Moms know very well that getting creative can save a lot of time, energy, and money.
It’s with this entrepreneurial spirit that Mom hacks were born!
So for all of you Moms out there who want to be resourceful, or find it hard to find time to take care of your lingerie, we’ve got some amazing hacks and tips for you.
Repurposing Your Bra Pads
Before you dispose of your old bras, cut out those bra pads! You wouldn’t believe the things you can use them for that will not only make life easier, but will cut down the cost of having to buy other products.
For example, some moms on Baby Center shared that used bra pads are great for cleaning dust off of almost any surface, for drying your makeup or art brushes, or even a makeshift Band-Aid!
Some bra pads can be re-worn in other bras too – a great and inexpensive way to repurpose that extra boost of cleavage!
Know The Quick Fixes
Let’s face it, Moms! There aren’t enough hours in a day, and sometimes, you need a quick fix!
Many of you already know the trick of using clear nail polish to fix a run in your stockings?
Well, you can also use this clear nail polish hack on your seamless panties too! So if you tear your favorite pair and you don’t have time to shop for new ones, this is a nice quick fix!
Another easy fix for an underwire that pops out before you can replace your old bras: cut a piece of your adhesive sanitary pad or panty liner and use it to quickly and comfortably secure the underwire back in place.
Stock Up On Lingerie Bags
As we mentioned before, lingerie bags are essential if you have to wash your intimates in the washing machine (and – gulp! – the dryer!).
But lingerie wash bags have other practical uses too!
One popular mommy blog idea is clipping a lingerie bag to your kids’ laundry hampers to collect socks. That way, they are always organized and don’t get lost or go missing in the shuffle!
Some other lingerie wash bag uses are to wash Legos (they get dirty on the floor and in your kids’ mouths and hands), to carry toys to the beach, to organize towels and linens, and well – pretty much organize anything!
Plus, don’t forget how useful these can be when you’re traveling and want to keep all your intimates and swimwear together!
Make Your Underwear Last Longer
When you have the chance to splurge on underwear you love, you want it to last as long as possible.
You also don’t want to have to replace underwear constantly because the color wears out after multiple washes and wears.
There’s an old wives tale about making sure the colors stay vibrant: soak your panties in white vinegar for 10 minutes after washing it the first time. Be sure to rinse them thoroughly after, and hang to dry.
Another key to preserving the color is to wash your intimates ONLY in cold water (also, it’s better for the environment and your energy bill), with like colors (don’t mix darks and lights), and protect your intimates from ever getting acquainted with your dryer.
