Waist Training Essentials: Cleaning and Storing Your Corset

Waist Training

If you do not take the time to care for your waist training corset the proper way, it will become prematurely misshapen and develop rust, making it unusable. Proper corset care is not difficult. To start off,  just follow these instructions:

How to Clean your Waist Training Corset

Do not underestimate the importance of your waist trainer. Australia may have plenty of corset shops, but it doesn’t mean you always have to buy a new one.

Avoid performing tasks that may damage or stain the fabric. Some waist training aficionados suggest wearing a thin layer of breathable clothing underneath to limit body contact. When you retire for the night, hang your corset on a chair’s backrest to help minimise wear and tear.

When it is time to clean your waist trainer, go natural. Spray the interior with a light coat of mist — a mixture of 1:1 water/vodka — to aid in sanitising and making sure the interior remains odourless. Do this every time you hang your waist trainer every night, so it will be dry in the morning when you wear it again for the day.

In case you get your waist trainer stained, choose from the following options: spot clean by using a gentle detergent and lukewarm water on a plain white cloth, or have it professionally dry cleaned.

How to Store Your Waist Training Corset

You have three options for storing your corset for long-term usage, so you can keep its shape. First, lay it out flat in a drawer, and lace it tightly without gaps. You can also hang it on a hanger, or store it rolled up in basket or drawer.

Keep in mind that your waist training corset will only last long and provide results if you take care of it properly. If you’re still unsure, contact the distributor or maker of your corset and ask for more details  on how to clean and store your corset the right way.
