We love that you want to take the best care possible of your Jayne Nicole products!
The rules of care are like other luxury goods with fine materials – wash them carefully, never machine dry, and store gently.
Read on for tips on how to keep your hosiery in beautiful condition, on and off your legs!
First things first: You need to make sure all your rings, bracelets, watches, and any other interfering jewelry is off! The last thing we want is for your stunning hosiery to get caught in your favorite bracelets or rings.
Pantyhose should be washed just like socks - after every wear. It is best to hand wash your hosiery. To protect your hosiery even further, wash them inside out. To hand wash, gently massage the material in a bowl of warm, soapy water let them soak for 15 minutes then rinse in cold water. Roll in them in the towel but do not wring them. Lay them flat to dry on a towel until dry. Never put them in the dryer!!! The heat and movement can cause the material to lose their stretch and will damage the delicate fibers. So, let these babies air dry flat on a towel.
- You can use your bathroom sink for washing. If you cannot, a large bowl could work too. Grab your delicate liquid detergent (or if you do not have any, regular liquid laundry detergent can work as a substitute). We need to treat our stockings like royalty, which means no rough treatment on those babies!
- Place your hosiery in the bowl or sink filled with detergent. Use your hands to clean to get rid of the dirt and oil. Gently rub the hosiery a few times to make sure that the detergent reaches every part like the gusset and feet.
Once you are finished, lightly squeeze the excess water out of your hosiery. Make sure you lay them on a flat surface to dry. Try not to hang them or it may cause them to stretch out more than it needs to. And in a couple of hours, your Jayne Nicole Hosiery should be ready to go. TA-DAH!
Note: We recommend to not use a drying machine to dry your hosiery as the heat can weaken the delicate fibers.
Before thinking about how to clean your hosiery, make sure you are putting them on properly. First! Hosiery gloves! They will protect your delicate hosiery from snags while putting them on. We offer them on our site. If not using hosiery gloves, be sure to mositurize your hands, feet and legs with your favorite body lotion before slipping into your hosiery. Shaved legs are a bonus, remember the pantyhose are made of a delicate material and stubble can be coarse which could cause a RUN. Ok for this next part you might want to sit on the edge of your bed or a chair. Now gently slip your toes into your pantyhose only after gathering/rolling them all the way down to the toe. Gently roll them up over your heel, calf, then to your knee. Now switch over to your other leg and repeat to the thigh, stopping to adjust if necessary, rather than tugging at the end. Then continue to bring them up over your hips and to the waist, adjust gently if needed. This helps stop unnecessary stretching of the delicate fibers. To prevent snags and runs, make sure your toenails and fingernails are smooth, filed and free of rough edges, and all jewelry is removed. our wear your Jayne Nicole hosiery gloves. Please do not pull your hosiery off by the toe - instead, roll them down just like you rolled them up.
