Treat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, and waistbands.
Stain Solution is ideal for protein and tannin stains, such as wine, coffee, ink, grass, urine, blood, and old, set-in stains such as pit stains.
The Wash & Stain Bar works the material to remove dirt, grease, oil, and makeup.
To remove odor, presoak the item for 30 minutes in cool water mixed with 1/4 cup of Scented Vinegar.
Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing delicate mesh items, such as intimates.
Add 2 capfuls or a squirt of Delicate Wash to a washbasin 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.
Mesh sports apparel can be machine washed.
Turn the item inside out, and place it in a Mesh Washing Bag. Wash with Sport Detergent on the normal cycle with hot water to achieve the deepest clean. Wash with like colors and fabrics only.
For especially sweaty, dirty, or musty items, add 2 capfuls of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to the wash.
Dry & Finish
Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or hang to dry, or tumble dry on the low setting.
To remove wrinkles, we recommend steaming for the best and safest finish. To iron, hover over the item using the steam setting, or press using the lowest temperature setting.
To freshen between launderings, spritz with Delicate Spray or Sport Spray.
Delicate mesh items should be stored folded to prevent stretching or distorting. We recommend storing in a breathable cotton storage bag to protect items from bugs. Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.
All techniques are based on textile science. Not all garments perform and react as science would predict.
