Steps

1. Get a liquid detergent preferably and then begin. Put some water into the bowl of the salad spinner until it is about one fifth full. Then add the detergent. One third of a tea spoon will get the job done.

Don't spin continuously in a circular motion. It's best to alternate the direction and turn with medium speed.

4 Pour the soapy water out, add fresh water and rinse again. Do a couple of times until all the soap is out.

5. Finally, spin the bra to partly dry it. You can do this twice or thrice and then remove excess water using the drain of the salad spinner.

Apparently, you could use the same one?

Here's the deal. If storage space is an issue for you, the same spinner can serve you for both salad and bras. However, this is not medically certified and there might be health risks to this.

But, all you need to do really is dry according to the instructions on the label. If it says dry flat, then find a flat surface and place your spun dry bra on a towel atop this surface to dry. Otherwise, you can hang out to dry.

Good luck with washing your bra. And keep a separate salad spinner for your bras! Do not use it for the salad again!
