Wash nylon with like colors. Do not mix light-colored nylons with any dark materials.
Place nylon lingerie in a mesh laundry bag to keep it protected during the cycle. Turn larger nylon items inside out to protect the color as much as possible.
Set the washer settings. Use a delicate or permanent press cycle, if available. If these are not an option, choose a cycle with the most gentle spin or shortest wash time. Wash in warm water.
Remove the nylon garments as soon as the wash cycle finishes to avoid wrinkling.
Keep small nylon garments in a mesh bag, and place them in the dryer on the "tumble dry low" setting for a cool drying temperature. Remove the garments as soon as the cycle finishes to avoid misshaped clothing and wrinkles. If you do not wish to dry the item in the dryer, hang the items on a line or lay them out on a flat surface to dry.
