SAFE, there’s no worse feeling than your favorite bra becoming a deformed mess.
Mbali Nhlapho, owner of cleaning service Sisters at Work, is no stranger to this sentiment and told viewers how to extend the longevity of their bras.
On her TikTok, Nhlapho first showed off a bra that was washed in the washing machine without proper care as a clear example of what not to do.
The damaged, “off-shape” bra had its underwire sticking out through the corner, every woman’s worst nightmare.
The lingerie expert then explained how to properly wash your bra to ensure the underwires don’t pierce and puncture the fabric.
To make your bras last longer and stay in good shape, she suggested putting your bra in a laundry bag or pillowcase before washing.
“And draw attention to the fact that the water you use is cold water,” she added.
The viewers of the video expressed their gratitude in the comments.
“Thanks for the tip, always had trouble with it,” commented one.
“Thanks I’m struggling with cables,” added another.
“Yooo I’m so educated today thanks… I’ve always wondered why the wires are coming out,” one gushed.
One grateful user praised, “Your content is so relevant we appreciate you mom.”
If you’re looking for more bra tips, a woman named Hannah Warling revealed how to turn your bra into a strapless one in seconds.
Wearing a strappy bra over a white t-shirt, Warling demonstrated how to make the straps disappear.
She started by lifting a strap and looping it over her head, ending on the opposite shoulder.
Then she pulled her arm out of the strap so it was positioned under her armpit and across the width of her chest.
The steps were then repeated with the second strap.
Both straps were now tight across her chest, Hannah picked them up and placed them over the cups to hold them in place and prevent them from moving.
Social media users were very happy with the handy hack.
“Awwww, I literally had this problem today. Never thought of that – yeeeehaaaaa,” gushed one.
A second wrote: “Finally… This solved my problem. Thanks.”
Another added: “This is life saving.”
“This is the best hack ever thhhaannkkks especially since I love off shoulder tops,” commented another.
However, another viewer wasn’t as successful with the hack.
“Now I’m stuck and I don’t know how the hell to get out of this mess,” she joked.
