So... a local Dear Abby type person has an online discussion and it came up about how often to wash bras, personally, I was disgusted that some said it's lucky if the bra gets washed once a month, they take it off and put in back in the drawer - ACK!! Wash your bras folks! LOL

Here I am. Thank God for creating the bra

Washing bras, let's look at a blast from the past.

Laundry.........

You know the apartment communities where they have washers and dryers in one house, there was this sunday when after the wash, I couldn't find an empty dryer and there was just one which had finished and the clothes were lying in for quite a while, without anyone coming in and taking them away.

I was running out of time and I started to take them out myself and get on with my life. One of the first things that came to my hand was a bra and believe it or not, the fabric was so soft and exquisitely made that I started to explore it.

Now, guess who walked right in. She found me standing there with her bra in my hand.

"Well, I had to run, so, I was taking your stuff out....... think this belongs to you??"

She stood shocked for a while, unable to react, then snatched her bra from my hands as I held it out to her. After a few seconds, both of us started laughing.

I just stuffed my clothes into the empty dryer and ran away

Wait, don't you do your laundry naked sometimes? That could explain why she looked at you funny.

That bra's not going to stay nice if she puts it in the dryer. Geez. That's Bra Maintenance 101.

Shrinking bras offer extra push-up effort and form better cleavages?? I don't know

But this is good to know. I see women putting bras in the laundromat from time to time... perhaps, I'll try confronting one of the "nice" owners. Thanks for the tip.
