Your Lululemon Repair & Cleaning Guide
What is it about a particular brand of clothing that makes you pay well over $100 for a pair of yoga pants, and you do it gladly? Lululemon is one of those brands that earn that kind of loyalty.
With that kind of investment, it pays for you to learn more about Lululemon repair and cleaning processes. One of the things that you get for the extra you pay is that Lululemon fashions never seem to go out of style. So the longer you make them last, the more bang you get for your buck.
How to Clean Your Lululemon Garments
One of the bonuses of knowing you’re going to properly clean your Lululemon clothing is you won’t have to pussy-foot around when you wear them trying to not get them dirty!
There are many specific instructions for cleaning specific garments and fabrics, so always check the label. The following steps will help you prolong the life of your garments.
Wash in Cold Water & Air Dry
You can machine wash garments using cold water. After rinsing, lay them flat to dry. Flipping them over a few times will help speed the drying process. The lay-flat drying technique helps the garment keep its shape, versus hang drying.
You should always wash your brightly coloured garments before wearing them. Wash them with similar colours and keep coloured garments that are wet away from other fabrics.
Keep Things Together
Always turn your clothing inside out before washing and wash them with other synthetics (like Luxtreme and Nulu). Don’t wash them with abrasive fabrics, like denim, or clothing with velcro or zippers.
Do Not Use Fabric Softener
It doesn’t really do anything for synthetics and it can prevent sweat-wicking gear from wicking sweat!
