Tights are a building block of your wardrobe: Here's how to choose the right tights for your shape, how to wash your tights, and how to keep tights snag-free. Plus: the surprising reason you should freeze your tights.
How to Hand Wash Tights (The Best Method)
Fill a clean sink with cold water. Add a tablespoon of mild detergent and a tablespoon of baking soda. Turn tights inside out (don't forget to remove any rings or jewelry that could snag delicate tights first); let soak for 10 minutes. Scrunch tights and rub fabric together to remove dirt. Rinse with cold water. Roll the tights up in a towel to remove excess water before hanging to air dry.
