You love how you look in the gym (and we do too!). While RSLNT’s gear is durable and (true to the name) resilient to your toughest training sessions, we have plenty of advice on what you can do to take good care of your things. To extend the life of your training clothes, it's important to take simple precautions and follow proper care instructions. By doing so, you can continue to train comfortably and confidently for longer periods of time. To help you out, we've compiled a list of common mistakes that you can easily avoid.
Avoid Using Harsh Detergents
Some detergents contain chemicals that can cause discoloration or deterioration of the fibers in your training clothes. It is critical to read the care instructions and use a mild detergent designed for activewear. We know you want to smell great, but be sure to not accidentally damage your clothes in the process!
Using High Heat Settings
Exposing your training clothes and gear to high heat settings in the dryer or ironing them at high temperatures can lead to shrinkage, fabric damage, or even melt synthetic materials. Follow the recommended care instructions and use low heat settings, or air dry when possible. Short shorts on purpose are great, short shorts on accident are not.
Overloading The Washing Machine
Overloading the washing machine with too many items can prevent proper agitation and thorough cleaning. It can also increase wear and tear on the fabric. Make sure you follow the recommended load capacity guidelines for your machine. Don’t overstuff, otherwise you might rip your stuff!
Ignoring Specific Care Instructions
Different fabrics and materials require specific care instructions. If your training clothes or gear have specific guidelines, such as hand washing or air drying, it's crucial to follow them to avoid damage. You might not think it’s a big deal… until it is.
Storing Damp Or Wet Gear
Leaving your training clothes or gear damp or wet for long periods can lead to unpleasant odors, mold, or mildew growth. Always allow them to air dry completely before storing them. That will make sure you stay clean, feel good, and remain healthy!
By being aware of the potential blunders that can harm your training clothes and equipment, you can ensure that they remain in good condition and serve you well during your workouts. To maximize the functionality and longevity of your training gear, follow these guidelines. By doing so, not only will you protect your investment, but you will also be able to train in comfort and style for a long time. !Now, go ahead and conquer your workouts with confidence, knowing that your gear is in great shape!
