How to Clean and Care for Activewear !
- Soak and Rinse
Mix 1 part white distilled vinegar with 4 parts cold water in a sink. Submerge your activewear and let it soak for 15 to 30 minutes before washing.
- Sort and Turn Clothes Inside Out
Wash your technical workout wear alone, and only with like fabrics and colors. Close the zippers and turn the clothing inside out before placing it in the washing machine, as the bacteria and grime reside on the inside of your activewear.
- Add the Correct Detergent
Add approximately 2 teaspoons of detergent (or the specified amount on the bottle) to your load, no matter how bad your clothes smell. Too much detergent will build up on the clothing fibers, creating an environment for breeding bacteria and yeast.
- Set the Washing Machine Cycle
Wash your high-performance activewear in cold water on the gentle cycle. Hot water and strong agitation can damage the fiber of your workout clothing and shorten its lifespan.
- Air-Dry, When Possible
Hang your high-performance workout clothes to air-dry on a drying rack, if possible. If you must put them in the dryer, use the lowest heat setting possible to avoid damaging the fabric.
