Wonder why your yoga clothes stink? Here's how to wash yoga clothes and gear, to get seriously clean.
New, technical fabrics (like Lululemon, Under Armour, Athleta) means a whole new type of laundry. With new fabrics, comes new rules. “Do not bleach, wash in cold water, do not use fabric softeners.” With all of these restrictions on the clothing tag, how can you actually wash yoga clothes? HEX has some advice for cleaning workout clothes.
How to wash + maintain yoga clothes
Ditch blue detergent
There’s no good reason why their laundry detergent is blue and gooey. Stop coating your clothes with dyes, brighteners, softeners, and fragrance. That stuff messes with the performance properties of your technical apparel and doesn’t clean your laundry.
Skip the fabric softener
Why does cleaning expert Jolie Kerr call fabric softeners “the real villain”? Fabric softeners and dryer sheets trap up the sweat wicking features of your yoga clothes.
