Make your tights last longer with some green cleaning tips
There's nothing more frustrating than taking a pair of tights out of the wash only to find that they've gone bobbly or even worse been ravaged by the machine and are no longer wearable.

However, by following a few eco-friendly washing tips, you can make your tights last longer and do your bit for the environment too.

Taking the time to hand wash your tights can make all the difference to how long they last, as they are less likely to get caught in the machine and tear or ladder. Using cooler water can also extend hosiery's life as it means  that they maintain their elasticity for longer – meaning the wearer avoids the Nora Batty look.

If you are going to hand wash, make sure you remove all rings and bracelets so there is nothing for the tights to snag on.

When it comes to drying tights, the Bliss Tree recommends rolling them up in a towel and pressing down to remove any excess water before air drying them either outside or on a cold radiator.
