Pardon my German - I am open to correction...
😊
My white nylon bra was Grotty Grey and I couldn't find those wee Dylon tins anywhere
so I made a pot of tea in a plastic jug with a pint of BOILING water (of course)
leaving the teabag in to brew for ten minutes.

I then removed the teabag (so - no staining!) and immersed my clean dampened bra
using a small bowl to keep it under.

After 15 min I stuck it in the microwave for 2 min, then left it immersed for a further 15.
Then rinsed it out in a basinful of cold water.

Bye Bye Grotty Grey - Hello Skintone!!
Ta - Dah!! 😁



Hope this is OK, the other pics I took seemed vaguely obscene....
And I am not sure this would work on DD's T-shirt bras (or falsies, as I call them 😐)

Clever! It's come out a pretty colour. I bet you could use fruit teas for a range of pastel colours too 😁

Not everyone needs a scented Christmas bra you know ...how about this....oh, better be careful or will be banned by Louise.....or James or both......when you reach my age 82 with a pacemaker right where the metal on a bra strap goes...not only does gravity take over regarding uplifting efforts, but the strap irritates the implant within top left. Reckon perfume could add to the irritation...ah well...strapless bras out of the equation but sports bras in for no metal...but perfume...mmmmmmm no...am allergic to perfume anyway....................................sorry folks...thumbs down on this one
