New Year, Fresh Gear: The Ultimate Activewear Laundry Guide

As we step into the new year, many of us are armed with resolutions to lead healthier, more active lifestyles. Whether you're a fitness enthusiast or just starting your wellness journey, one often overlooked aspect of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the care of your activewear. You want your workout gear to work as hard as you do, and it deserves the best care to ensure it stands up to the challenges of your fitness routine. Welcome to the HEX’s activewear laundry guide for a fresh start in 2024!

1. Understand Your Activewear Fabrics

Before diving into the laundry routine, take a moment to understand the fabrics that make up your activewear. Different materials require different care, especially synthetic fabrics. Moisture-wicking fabrics, for example, Lululemon's, are designed to pull sweat away from the body, and they benefit from gentle care to maintain their effectiveness. Check the care labels on your activewear to guide your laundry routine. Need help on reading the care labels - check out our previous blog post.

2. Invest in a Specialized Activewear Laundry Detergent, Like HEX!

Not all detergents are created equal AND traditional detergents were not formulated for activewear! Traditional detergents leave residues, strip away moisture-wicking properties, and contribute to the breakdown of elastic fibers. This new year, make the switch to a specialized Activewear Laundry Detergent. Ours is formulated to address the unique challenges of activewear, tackling sweat, odors, and stains while preserving the performance of the fabrics.

3. Prioritize Cold Water Washes

Hot water can be harsh on activewear fabrics, leading to color fading and diminished elasticity. Make it a resolution to prioritize cold water washes for your workout gear. Our detergent is designed to be effective in cold water, providing a thorough clean without compromising the quality of your activewear.

5. Embrace Air-Drying

While the convenience of a dryer is tempting, air-drying is the gentler option for activewear. The heat from dryers can contribute to wear and tear, causing fabrics to break down more quickly. Lay your activewear flat or hang it to dry, and let the air do its work. Your clothes will thank you by maintaining their shape and performance features.

6. Treat Stains Promptly

Accidents happen, and stains are an inevitable part of an active lifestyle. The key is to treat stains promptly. Our Stain & Stink Remover is equipped to handle tough stains, but the sooner you address them, the better. Keep our stain remover on hand and attend to spills and spots as soon as possible.

7. Rotate Your Activewear

Give your activewear pieces a breather by rotating them regularly. This not only extends the life of each piece but also allows them to air out between wears. The less frequently you wear a particular item, the less often you'll need to wash it, preserving its quality for the long run.

8. Store Activewear Properly

Proper storage is the final step in maintaining your activewear's performance. Ensure that your workout gear is completely dry before storing it. Consider using breathable storage bags or drawers to prevent moisture buildup and maintain the integrity of the fabrics.

This new year, make a commitment to the health and longevity of your activewear. By following these simple steps and incorporating our HEXimen into your routine, you're not just cleaning your gear – you're giving it the care it deserves for a fresh start in 2024. Cheers to a year of clean, fresh, and vibrant activewear adventures!
