A flexible synthetic fiber, also known as nylon. It can take rubbing and scraping without wearing away, but is prone to degradation by acids and sunlight. Commonly used for underwear, outerwear, and sports apparel.

Spot Treat

Polyamide cannot be dry cleaned. For unlaunderable items such as upholstery, spot treat only.

To spot treat, wet the Wash & Stain Bar and gently work into the stained area(s).

Remove soap and dirt with a wet Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth. Be sure to remove all soap.

Dampen the cloth as needed, and repeat the process until satisfied.


When washing, always pretreat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, and cuffs.

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.


Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing delicate polyamide items, such as hosiery.

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.

Machine Wash

For durable polyamide clothing such as outerwear, wash with Signature Detergent on the normal cycle with hot water to achieve the deepest clean.

Wash with like colors and fabrics only.

If your item is dirty, dingy, or dull in color, add a capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to the pretreat or wash cycle.

Dry & Finish

Polyamide can be tumble dried on low, or line dried. To reduce wrinkles, remove from the dryer while still damp or line dry.

Avoid direct sunlight.

Steam after washing to remove wrinkles and between wears to freshen and remove odor and bacteria.

To freshen between launderings, spritz with Fabric Fresh Classic 8 fl oz.


Always store items clean.

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.
