Check the care and content label. This label has garment specific information on how to care for your lululemon gear.
If you're rushing off to your class, machine wash your garments in cold water and tumble dry on low.
Machine wash in cold water and air dry (and we don't mean the setting on your dryer). This will help to protect the life of the LYCRA® fibre and the shape of your garment.
Almost 60% of our total water impact and 20% of our total carbon emissions occurs when our guests launder their garments. Cold wash and air dry your gear if you want to show the earth a little love.
Keep it light and bright. To care for your bright coloured gear, we suggest that you:
Turn your gear inside out and wash it with other synthetic fabrics (e.g., Luxtreme, nylon, etc.) and avoid anything abrasive, such as denim or garments with Velcro® or zippers. These can be harmful, especially in a repetitive motion like in a washer or dryer.
Wash your luon separate from your hoodies and towels. We know that cotton fluff (especially from towels) gets attached to luon.
Avoid using fabric softener because it coats the technical fabric and inhibits its wicking capabilities.
Machine washing gear that contains LYCRA® fibres and hanging it to dry will protect and extend the life of your gear.
For washing our cotton fleece Scuba Hoodies, we recommend putting them in a cold wash with your other cottons and either hanging them to dry or drying them on low.
No. The fabric softener clogs the pores of the technical fabrics, so it makes the fabric not wick away sweat as well. Wash your items again (without the fabric softener) and they should return to their normal wicking level as the softener is washed away.
We recommend spot cleaning your bag with a cloth, a little soap and water.
Our headbands can be washed like our other technical garment (washing is especially important for slipless headbands whose 'sliplessness' can be affected by hair oils). We'd suggest putting them into a delicates bag so they don't get caught on anything. Cold water and lay flat to dry is best.
We find that removing cups when washing our sports bras helps them to keep their shape. To wash the cups, hand-wash them in cool or warm water and lay them flat to dry.
Down feathers can move around as they settle, which might cause some sharp quills to poke through the fabric. If you see a feather poking out, resist the temptation to pull it as this can create a larger perforation. Instead, try to grasp the loose feather from the inside of the garment and gently pull it out or push it back in. Following the wash and care instructions for your jacket will also help to settle the down and minimize any leakage.
