Congrats! You’ve either just or recently made your first LuLaRoe purchase! Woo-hoo! I hope you’re ready to fall down the rabbit hole. If you haven’t yet, check out the tags on your new lovelies. Why is this? Each piece has a slightly different care regimen, so make sure you’re reading them so you know how to properly wash your LuLaRoe. These items aren’t like something you find at the store at the mall. They need a little extra care since LuLaRoe creates all of the fabrics from the thread up. But don’t worry friends! I’ve created a quick cheat sheet to help you with washing items based on the most common fabrics for that style. I do recommend washing your LuLa in it’s own load.
Make sure to turn your leggings inside out, wash on cold on the gentle or delicate cycle, and hang dry. Yup! It’s that simple!
Since the lace items are delicate, make sure to separate them from the rest of your laundry. The hooks on bras and zippers can ruin lace in a hurry. I recommend that you hand wash your LuLaRoe lace items just to make sure that the lace isn’t damaged. You can either hang dry or lay flat to dry depending on if you think the item will stretch out.
Black or Dark Items:
Ok, I’ve seen a few people that have had dark items bleed onto their other clothes, the car seats, purses, etc. While these cases are few and far between, I recommend washing dark items on their own for the first time. I do throw in a color catcher to help so they don’t dye anything here. HERE is a link for a pretty good deal on them!
Honestly, I have LOTS of black. It’s the same color as my soul. I’ve never had a piece of black clothing transfer the die to me. I would not worry about this too much. On my scale of things to worry about, this ranks just slightly higher than being on a plane that crashes.
Shirts, Skirts, and Dresses
Since these items are are so insanely soft, the fabrics are more prone to pilling, aka the tiny little fuzzies that form on soft fabrics). Since this is the case, make sure to wash things on the delicate cycle. You can also invest in a fabric shaver (they’re pretty cheap) and occasionally shave your shirts. If your dresses have zippers (like the Amelia), make sure they are zipped up. If you are worried about the zipper damaging other items, you can always wash them separately. Don’t forget to flip these items inside out before washing them, and hang them to dry to make sure you’ll get lots of wear out of them.
