How do you wash your tight/stockings/pantyhose so that they don't come out a tangled mess? I just spend 15 minutes (no kidding) untangling my load that came out of the washing machine!!!!! Any good ideas for me???
Thanks so much

Why do I think that in a mesh bag it just doesnt get washed the same like it does when washed loose? Am I wrong?

I only wash tights/stockings by hand. they run so easily so I dont want to risk that will happen in the machine. they also get terribly tangled

Could be you're right that they don't get cleaned as well in a mesh bag. Ya gotta choose. Mesh bag or untangling.

I hand wash. quicker and easier than detangling and then risking some runs.

IMO they do get cleaned in the mesh bag, it just doesn't get out stains. For instance, I usually stain my pantyhose with the color of the inside of my shoe because of sweat. The tights come out clean and smelling great when I hang them to dry, just those stains don't come out because I wash on a low temp on delicate. so I am just careful to wear them in the same spot as the last time so the color is on bottom, but it is clean.

Well, there you go, Rivky. Send them to pinkbubbles to wash in her machine, and you'll have the best of both worlds!

even easier , just stand on them in the shower and they'll come out smelling like your favorite shampoo and never tangle, just line dry over the shower rack.
