COLD WASH / AIR DRY:
Turn garments inside out, machine wash in cold water and air dry (and we don't mean the setting on your dryer). This will help to protect the life of the ENDURACOOL fibre and the shape of your thir band. Taking care of bright colours
TO CARE FOR YOUR BRIGHT COLOURED THIRBANDS, WE SUGGEST THAT YOU:
Wash bright colours alone before you wear them wash according to care instructions (above) continue washing bright coloured gear with similar colours when wet, keep bright colours away from other fabrics
OTHER TIPS TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR THIRBAND:
Wash your THIRbands with other synthetic fabrics (e.g., endrocool,lycra, ) and avoid anything abrasive, such as denim or garments with Velcro® or zippers. These can be harmful, especially in a repetitive motion like in a washer and dryer
AVIOD MIXING THIRBANDS WITH COTTON:
Wash your THIRband separate from your hoodies and towels. We know that cotton fluff (especially from towels) gets as attached to THIRbands.
THIRBANDS AND FABRIC SOFTENER - DONT MIX:
Avoid using fabric softener because it coats the technical fabric and inhibits its wicking capabilities. The fabric softener clogs the pores of the technical fabrics, so it makes the fabric not wick away sweat as well. Wash your THIR items again ( without the fabric softener ) and they should return to their normal wicking level as the softener is washed away.
LIMIT YOUR DETERGENT:
Use the least amount of detergent possible to clean it effectively (leftover detergent may inhibit the water-repellency).
