A little trick I like to use to keep everything in my lingerie dresser smelling fresh, is to drop a couple bars of soap into each drawer. When the soap starts to dry up a little bit, all you have to do is get it damp, and put it back in the drawer.... Lasts forever and makes all of your cute things smell lovely!
I’d never heard that tip before. Thanks for sharing!
A great way to get weird smells out of your lingerie, like cigarette smoke, is Bronner's soap. I wash all my lingerie in a mixture of the lavender and rose scents. To get a weird smell out, just let your delicates soak for for awhile in a bubbly sink. Bronner's is all natural and very gentle. Plus, it leaves them smelling uh-may-zing.
Do you have any recommendations on how to get cigarette smoke smell out of lingerie (specifically my KMD Vargas dress)? I've tried washing it in Soak wash a few times and no luck. I was curious about using baking soda or white vinegar but wasn't sure if those were good to use on mesh, nylon, lace, etc. Google has been no help so far :(
Unfortunately, I don’t know the answer to that either. But if you do decide to experiment with baking soda and vinegar, I’d love to hear your results.
Love your blog! Please could you recommend some affordable uk online lingerie shops? Including normal lingerie to corsets etc :) thank you x
Thanks for writing. As I’ve mentioned before, affordable means different things for everybody. I don’t know what your budget is, and what’s affordable to someone else may be anything but for you.
If you want a good, all-purpose lingerie store that’s based in the UK, I recommend Figleaves. They carry a lot of price points, sizes, and brands. If you want more high-end lingerie, including pin-up styles and corsets, try Fairy GothMother.
