Your workout should be challenging - not your laundry! Keep your activewear, loungewear, swimsuits, and sneakers smelling fresh, in great shape, and ready for action, whether you're training for a marathon, swimming laps, or just running errands.
Pretreat sweat and sunscreen stains before each wash with the Stain Solution. Be sure to target underarm areas, waistbands, thin straps, and the underwire of sports bras and tank tops.
For mesh sneakers, treat stains with Stain Solution, and work in with a stain brush. Allow to soak in cool water for up to 30 minutes.
To remove unwanted odors that present themselves post-workout, simply presoak the item in a bath of cool water and plain white vinegar. Leave to soak for at least 30 minutes.
Machine washing is appropriate for most activewear and durable spandex blends. Turn the item inside out, and place it in a Mesh Bag to preserve elasticity and prevent tearing and snagging in the machine.
Select the delicate cycle and use cool water. Add the appropriate amount of Signature Detergent according to the machine and load size. This formula powerfully cleanses everyday laundry with a triple enzyme blend that targets stains, dirt, and oils.
Handwashing is the best and safest method for cleaning bathing suits and items with fine mesh like sneakers. Add Signature Detergent to a tub or sink filled with cool water.
Submerge the item and gently agitate the water 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. Always rinse hands after hand laundering.
Always air dry activewear, swimsuits, and sneakers! The high heat of the dryer will reduce the fabric's elasticity and moisture-wicking properties.
Lay the items flat in their natural shape on a drying rack or hanger. When drying, avoid direct sunlight and heat sources, such as the radiator, because they can also degrade fibers.
