how-to guide: washing and caring for your lululemon gear
When it comes to our laundry situation, we like to think we’ve got it down to an art. Unlike some clothing that can be worn more than once (we’re looking at you, favourite jeans) when we’re sweating once a day we tend to do laundry more than once a week, too. Because we make technical gear for a variety of sweaty pursuits, we recommend washing our product with care to ensure it keeps its shape and quality for years to come. We have a page filled with all the nitty gritty details and FAQs if you are looking for more info. We also put together these tips for quick reference. Without further ado, may we present to you:
eight commandments for caring for your lululemon gear
1. wash like with like.
Zippers and denim can abrade your lululemon gear.
2. wash luon and cotton separately.
Because of their different properties, cotton fibres can attach to luon and look like pilling.
3. inside out is the right way out.
Wash your lululemon gear inside out to keep the face fabric snag-free – this really works to help extend the life of your product.
4. take care of your brights.
Wash bright colours alone before you wear them to keep them their best and brightest.
5. wash bright colours together.
Keep all your bright-coloured luon in the same load to prevent colour transfer.
6. keep wet luon away from light colours.
If you’ve got sweaty luon in bright colours, keep it separate to avoid possible colour transfer.
7. cold wash/warm dry.
When in doubt, wash cold, tumble dry your gear. If there are special instructions for the wash and care of a product (check the label), we recommend following them to ensure the quality and care of your clothing (we don’t throw those instructions in just to create extra work, Guide’s Honour). Find full wash tips.
8. pro-tip for environmentalists.
Do you love the environment as much as your Wunder Unders? You have the option to cold water wash and air dry your gear if you wish to give the Earth a little love.
