How to wash your workout clothes

Now that you’ve discovered the best activewear ever, it’s important to look after it. High-quality activewear is worth the investment, and taking care of it means it will last you for years to come.

Don’t hesitate!

You’re exhausted from an intense workout, but try not to leave your worn activewear sitting around afterwards. Leaving sweaty tights in a pile (or basket) can cause bacteria build-up. Washing your activewear immediately after wearing will keep it fresh.

To prevent your activewear from fading we recommend washing in cold water. Using a hot water cycle can cause stains to stick and fabrics to shrink.

Say NO to fabric softeners

Softener can ruin the fabric and elasticity of your activewear — it’s best to avoid it.

Avoid rough surfaces!

Rubbing your activewear against rough surfaces causes abrasions or pulls. Avoid consistent contact with surfaces such as concrete, decking, rocks and rough terrain.

Hang to dry, always avoid putting your activewear in the dryer

The heat from the dryer can alter the performance of our fabric and can cause it to shrink. We recommend hanging your activewear in an area away from direct sunlight (to avoid fading) to dry.

You’ve got to keep ‘em separated

Separate light from dark wash styles with multiple colours in them on their own to prevent colour bleeding. Wash similar plain colours together and turn your activewear inside out. For extra protection, wash your activewear in an individual washing bag.

It’s important to note that all activewear fabrics will eventually degrade over time due to friction, heat, sweat, type and intensity of exercise, and how they are treated between wears. Following these tips will help keep your activewear in tip-top condition and maximise its longevity.
