    I was reading the section under “wash tips” for hosiery mate, and I”ve found that you can wash up to 4-6 pairs of sheer/semi-sheer/opaque knee highs or compression knee-highs per capful of Hosiery Mate (per half sink of warm water).

    I have nylons that have lasted 3 years. I do not get any runs or snags. I love the smell. I thought at first the price was high but it lasted forever!

    I’ve found that I can wash up to 6 pairs of knee-hi’s per capful of hosiery mate (separating dark and light colored knee-hi’s), so your recommendation of between 4 to 6 pairs appears to be accurate.

    I”ve used Hosiery Mate for several years and it”s absolutely the best. Local stores no longer carry it, but it”s definitely worth the price to order and pay postage.

    I am delighted that this product is still available. I used to buy it at Penney”s but shame on them they no longer carry it. This product does exactly what it says it does. I have had some pantyhose for over 5 years now, and I use this product exclusively on them. It is a wonderful product. Thank you so much.

    Highly recommended! Found some in my grandmother”s closet after she died and decided to use it up. I”m so glad I did! I wear hosiery every day and they are definitely lasting longer!

    I have been using Hosiery Mate since 1985. I started wearing compression hose in 2009 and I am still wearing the same hose, snag free, with absolutely no change in support, thanks to Hosiery Mate. I use 4 capfuls in about 2-3 quarts of warm water for 3 pair of hose (wet the hose before washing). The result is deodorized, fresh hose with minimal effort. I also use Lingerie Mate for my lingerie. It is also a wonderful product. I can”t say enough nice things about these two products!

    My mother has used Hosiery Mate forever! I agree that it is the best for hose, bathing suits and nylon/polyester things. Your price is the best i can find too.

    Read about HosieryMate at online stockings forums, bought some and have used it extensively and exclusively for two years. Absolutely love the results. I wouldn’t trust my vintage 100% nylon stockings and modern-made Lycra stockings to anything else.
