I was quite surprised to read this post at The Beauty Brains earlier on today. I didn’t know this was such a common misunderstanding. No, Woolite isn’t dangerous when used as a lingerie-washer, TBB concludes:
“Woolite (or any other) mild detergent is fine for hand washing lingerie. You don’t need to spend a lot more money on speciality cleansers. If any of our readers are in the lingerie business, please drop us a line and let us know what you recommend.”
Sounds pretty clear. However, the actual urban myth behind this Woolite story can be found on several places on the net. Interested in reading about it some more? Check out this post at snopes.com…
Oh, I’m more than happy to give you the other side of the story… Quite a few people swear by avoiding Woolite when washing their precious lingerie… If you readers have a good reason for this, let me know, I’m more than willing to adjust my view on this ;-)!
