Fabric Care Guide
Wash all dark colored clothing before wearing them for the first time. Wash Separately from lighter colored clothing when doing laundry. Also do not soak for too long.
Wash Supplex garments separately from cotton or other abrasive fabrics, or place them in a laundry bag. This will keep it from attracting cotton fibres, which causes the pilling effect. Please note that friction from rubbing against other fabrics or materials can also cause pilling.
Always wash in cold water using a mild detergent when possible. Do not use bleach or strong detergents as it can decrease the overall quality of the fabric. Do not use fabric softener or optical brightener as it leaves a coating, which inhibits the wicking properties of Supplex fabric.
Always air dry when possible. If using a dryer, only use it on the delicate/lowest setting. Heat from the dryer will break down the Lycra over time and can cause minor shrinkage. Supplex is already pre-shrunk, but our other fabrics can shrink between 1~3% when washed in warm/hot water, or place in a dryer.
