Dona Lingerie Wash or Woolite. I have used Ivory baby detergent, though when out of both of the above.

costco detergent. We have not had a problem with using it so far. But I also have a HE front loader machine to wash them in.

I always use products like Method or Seventh Generation that are gentle and more eco friendly for all of my clothes, but especially for more delicate things like lingerie. I also wash it in a wonderwash, which is a handcranked washing machine that essentially hand washes your clothes for you in a much gentler way than even handwash cycles on an electric washing machine would. I've never had a problem with it!

I just use whatever lingerie detergent that I have around the house. I hand wash all of my lingerie though.

Any gentle soap (liquid, powder, or bar) is usually best for delicate items. Detergents have ingredients that work to lift dirt out of fabrics, so in general they are a bit stronger and can be a bit harsher than exclusively soap-based products. Liquid dishwashing soap can also work nicely, as it is milder than many detergents. If you live in an area with Hispanic-oriented products, there's also a liquid detergent from Mexico comparable to Woolite called Vel Rosita Fine Fabric Detergent (carried by some Walmarts).

I definitely agree with the suggestion of Woolite! I use the delicate Woolite to hand wash all my lingerie, and considering how much work it is for me to get bras in the first place, they get a good amount of care.
