Washing Instruction

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

The quality and long life of Yoga®️ compression garments are directly related to the special care and guidance below for washing your garment.

Yoga Compression Garments products should be washed immediately after each use. This prevents the accumulation of harmful contaminates to the material, such as toxins, sweat and fat that comes from the body. The objective it to try and stop these contaminants from drying out and getting trapped in the products fibers. Keeping your garment(s) clean allows the product to regain its ideal compression and elasticity to shape your body.

Following surgery, you may experience some bleeding and fluid leakage, so having an extra clean garment available will improve your comfort and hygiene. On average, many surgeons will recommend that you wear the garment at least four to six weeks post surgery.

How to clean your product

There are two ways you can wash your garment. By hand or machine which are explained below:

Machine wash

  • Machine washing is allowed but on a cool setting.
  • Maximum temperature of 30°C.
  • Do not use fabric softeners as the “fatty” material in the softener attaches to the fabric. The fabric feels softer, but it builds up over time and reduces the ability of the fabric to manage moisture and breathe.
  • To minimize blood stains, wash as soon as possible after the garment is soiled. Do not remove stains with solvents.
  • Wash your compression garment regularly to prevent oils and salts from the skin breaking down the fibers of the fabric.

Hand wash

  • All Yoga®️ products should be washed after each use. We recommend limpid (clear) water with neutral soap or mild detergent that does not contain bleach or chlorine.
  • Bleach or chlorine will break down the fibers of your garment and shorten its useful life.
  • Do not use fabric softeners as the “fatty” material in the softener attaches to the fabric. The fabric feels softer, but it builds up over time and reduces the ability of the fabric to manage moisture and breathe.

Drying process

  • Please, do not tumble dry, twist dry, iron or dry clean the garments as this may lead to permanent alteration of their shape and a loss of elasticity.
  • They should be air dried, allowing the garment to dry naturally away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • Once it is dried, put the garment in the fridge (not the freezer) for 30 minutes as this allows fiber reconstitution.

How to look after your garment

  • Only wear the garment at room temperature.
  • Garments older than six months should be replaced. They will no longer have the original compression and may not be providing the valuable medical therapy you need.
  • It is most effective to have more than one garment. It is useful to have one to wear and one to launder so that you may wear a garment at all times in the first few weeks.
  • All garments tend to lose some of their elasticity during daily wear. Alternate your garments to allow the elasticity to recover and prolong their effectiveness.
  • Garment is the correct size and style for each body shape.
  • All cautions are taken while putting the garment on.
  • Garments are worn for at least 8 hours a day.
