Quick tips for long-lasting gear
Today’s activewear helps you to move better, keep dry, and stay warm or cool. However, in order for your gear to perform day after day, proper care must be taken, wash after wash. Here are some useful tips and tricks to help your sportswear go the distance.
Wash immediately after use.
Sweaty clothes kept in a gym bag are a breeding ground for germs and unwanted odors.
Use special liquid detergent.
To minimize color fade and stretching, use a detergent that doesn’t contain bleach or optical brighteners.
Protect your fibers.
Avoid fabric softeners as they ‘clog’ the fine microfibers which damages their moisture wicking ability.
Wash with low temperatures.
Always read the labels, but generally low temperatures are optimal for maximum protection.
Set spin to slow.
Select a slow, gentle spin speed.
