Machine washing is appropriate for most activewear and durable spandex blends. Turn the item inside out, and place it in a Mesh Bag Bundle to preserve elasticity and prevent tearing and snagging in the machine.
Select the delicate cycle and use cool water. Add the appropriate amount of Sport Detergent according to the machine and load size.
For especially sweaty and dirty items, such as athletic uniforms and sportswear, use hot water and add 2 capfuls of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative.
Handwashing is the best and safest method for cleaning bathing suits and items with fine mesh like sneakers. Add 2 capfuls or a squirt of Sport Detergent to a Wash Tub Basin or sink filled with cool water.
Submerge the item and gently agitate the water with your hands to evenly distribute soap. Soak for up to 30 minutes.
Rinse well by running cool water through the item until the water is no longer soapy. Do not wring. Instead, press the water out of the item.
