HOW TO WASH YOUR BRACELETS || Friendship Bracelets


Hello everyone, my name is Masha Knots
and today I’m going to show you how to wash your friendship bracelets. So I’ve actually had this question asked to me so many times, it’s honestly baffling. I
didn’t realize that so many people didn’t know how to wash their bracelets,
because to me it’s very simple – it’s just soap and water, there’s nothing really to
it. But I realize now that probably so many of you are asking because you’re
just worried that something will happen to your bracelets if you wash them
incorrectly. So today I’m going to show you that you have nothing to worry about.
In a perfect world I would have used an old bracelet, which is dirty to
demonstrate, but I am currently on holiday in Miami, visiting my family, so I
do not have any of my old bracelets to demonstrate with. This is a bracelet that
actually made very recently and I made it for my grandma and I’ll have the
pattern linked down below if you want to make it for yourself. You
should also follow me on Instagram to keep up with all of my latest creations
as I always post the pictures of the bracelets and the patterns to the
bracelets that I make. So let’s get started. So when you’re cleaning your
bracelets, what you doing is essentially hand washing your laundry. So you can use
any sort of laundry liquid that you have that is suitable for hand wash. Or you
can use soap – a bar of soap or liquid soap, both work. Anything that you’d like
to wash your bracelet with is usually suitable. If it’s suitable for clothes
then it’s suitable for this, because this is pretty much thread, it’s similar to
clothes, so it should be fine. So today I’m going to be using some liquid that
we use for hand washing laundry and I’m going to start by filling up the basin
with water. You don’t need too much water because
the bracelet that you’re washing is quite small, but obviously if you’re
washing more than one bracelet you might want to use a little bit more water. Next,
I’m going to pour in a little bit of the washing-up liquid into the water and I’m
just going to mix it all in. I really enjoy that it’s so bubbly, I think
it’ll make for a real nice thumbnail. And then there’s not much more to it, you
just put your bracelet in the water and you start washing it as you would normal
laundry. And there, you can see my bracelet is all nice and soapy, so what I’m going
to do is I’m going to drain this water and I’m just gonna run some tap water
through the bracelet. And there you go, my bracelet is all nice
and clean. If you can, you might want to sort of push all the water out of the
bracelet, but my bracelets are usually pretty tight so it’s quite difficult to do that
and I think they get you in tighter when they’re wet, so I’m just gonna put this
out on the balcony. Thankfully, I am in sunny Florida right now, so it’s quite
hot outside and I think this is gonna dry in no time if I put it out on the
balcony. And, as you can see, the Bracelet dries completely normally, there are
no issues with anything, it is completely fine and you can continue wearing it
just like that. So I hope you guys enjoyed this video
maybe you found it informative. If you ever make anything based on any of my
videos, I always love to see you guys creations, so send them over to me on
Instagram either in posts or in direct messages. I post videos every Tuesday and
Saturday and I will see you on Tuesday, bye!
