how to wash your compression wear

Lycra, Polyester, Spandex, and Nylon are the materials used to fabricate all the highly advanced compression wear which improve blood circulation and moisture control during humid races.
right after the race, do your laundry and soak your compression wear with mild soap. shower gel will do. do not soak too long as the printing on Lycra will peel off.
always wash your compression wear with mild soap. detergents are too strong and will spoil the elasticity of the fabric.
rinse it and hang it this way. let both side share the weight so that fabric will not elongate at one side. do not spin dry. just hang it right after rinsing and let the water drip by itself. as simple as ABC. try not to dry it under hot sun, the compression quality will deteriorate.
