Save money on workout clothes with these simple tips.
When you splurge on some new clothes you probably read the tag and follow the instructions. However, like many other good practices that come to an end when life gets busy so will any meticulous laundering practices.
We spend a lot of our time in workout clothes so keeping it looking good wear after wear and wash after wash is important. We’ve learned some good tips from others that we’d like to pass along to you too.
Four tips to maintain your workout clothes:
1. Turn Everything Inside Out
Washing and drying clothes regularly often causes the fabric to pill similar to well worn sweaters. The easiest solution to keep the right side of the fabric looking new longer is to wash everything inside out. Make light work for yourself by turning everything inside out when you take it off.
2. Wash in Cold
Some companies do a better job than others of preshrinking fabrics. Fabrics are less likely to run or shrink when washed in cold. Use a good detergent to get the smell out.
3. Use a Lingerie Bag
If you have favorite pieces or you want to go the extra mile to keep everything looking new use lingerie bags. The bag will protect the fabric in the washer and drier. It’s faster than hanging everything and almost as good as line drying everything as long as the fabric is preshrunk.
4. Hang to Dry
If you live in a city hanging everything to dry is easier said than done. If anything, we hang our jackets and undies. Line drying keeps the zipper pulls from breaking and preserves the elastic in underwear. Let’s face it updating your workout gear with new pants or a top is much more exiting than new undies.
