Without pimpling or getting white linty dots. What's the best way to launder them, from A to Z?

I wash tights in a delicate cycle inside of a mesh bag and then hang to dry.

Wash in COLD water, on the most delicate cycle. Hang dry. Remember that no one sees the slight imperfections of your tights but you : )

HAND wash in cold water and drip dry. If you’re in a rush, roll up in a towel and squeeze hard to extract more water.

If they're pimpling, then you need to find a new brand.

To keep them in good condition, wash separately on their own, in net bags, on the hand wash cycle, in cold water. Hang to dry.

If they are pimpling you are probably washing them with other items such as towels or sweatshirts.
Only wash with dark colors using cold water, gentle cycle.
If you don’t have a mesh bag for delicates, make a loose knot by the bottom of the legs so they don’t tangle and rip.
Don’t put them in the dryer.,, hang them to dry
I’m wearing my black tights from last winter and they are fine. I’ve laundered them quit a few times and they look good.

This is a good point that few people know:. More important to wash like MATERIALS than like colors...so never put a delicate material like microfiber (what adult tights are made of) with things that are not delicate. Towels are their own wash, never together with clothes. Materials like khaki, denim, thick cotton twill, and sweatshirt material are only washed together in a casual cycle. Materials like Lycra, rayon, thin t-shirts, silk and silk-knit are only washed together in a delicate cycle. Whites are another load. If you mix materials, you will cause wear and tear on the fabric, like pilling.
