As much as I value all my little black dresses and consider them an important wardrobe staple, as soon as summer approaches I bring out my real favorites, little white dresses. I have collected so many pretty little white dresses over the years. I find them especially irresistible in girly fabrics like this lace one. In fact I probably have at least five white & lace dresses in various shapes & styles for summer.
I have to admit though, my love for lace & white dresses comes with its set of double the challenges. Not only does white show all the stains so easily, ( as a mom of three, and a tea & coffee lover, stains are pretty unavoidable for me, that’s for sure 🙂 ) but the delicate lace needs special care when laundering.
Luckily I have a great laundering system in place with three of my favorite laundry products from Procter & Gamble from Costco. In fact, I use this laundering routine for all my washes. I just choose different cycles of the washing machine & adjust the temperatures depending on fabric.
These three are my laundry helpers. I created a system for our families laundry using these products. I am glad they are available at Costco; I use them so much that I definitely NEED the bigger sizes. (Moms take note 🙂 )
- First there is the 3 in 1 Tide Pods. Since they became available, I’ve been using & loving them. It’s the little details that make them work great. I love that they are mess free, and super efficient, made from 90% cleaning ingredients. I throw them in the drum of the washing machine, before the clothes, and I use them in all temperatures, both for whites & colors.
- After I throw in the 3 in 1 Tide Pods, I add Downy Fresh Protect Beads to the drum of the machine, once again before the clothes. This is my secret for having great smelling clothes. Downy Fresh Protect provides all day odor control, I appreciate this product so much.
- I finish my laundry by throwing a sheet of Bounce dryer sheets in the drier for fewer wrinkles & softer clothes. <3 (See below for how I take special care laundering my lace dress)
Washing this lace dress, I need to be extra careful. Luckily my 3 in 1 Tide Pods are great at taking off stains but of course the lace fabric is very delicate. I wash this dress & similar pieces in the “hand wash” program of my washing machine. I usually by pass the drier either completely or dry in the gentle cycle with no heat. I still think its best to lay your delicates on a big towel to air dry. Works great for mine.
Style Tip: I find little white dresses very easy to style. White provides such an easy to accessorize background, it easily pairs with any color. This particular dress (very similar style here) has a girly, romantic feel to it. I paired it with the similarly feminine, and on trend lace up heels. Of course I have to have some color in all of my looks, and the embellished, multi color clutch brought the much needed fun factor to this outfit.
