recommend the specially formulated mild fabric care wash Forever
New for all women's lingerie. For stains, Pampered Passions recommends

Should you elect to machine wash your intimates use a garment
bag, turn your intimates inside out, separate and wash similar
colors at one time (do not mix dark and light colored garments)

For stains, never use bleach. Use a delicate stain remover like
