How to Wash Laundry | Sports Bras

Sports bras need to be washed every time you sweat in them. Your skin is the biggest organ of your body, so laundry skin care, especially with sports clothes, is critical in order to stay healthy, avoid nasty rashes by keeping grime and other irritants away from your body.

Here are our top tips for washing sports bras: 

  1. Read the clothing labels: The words “no”, “only” and “do not” should be heeded; other lingua, like “dry clean” (as opposed to “dry clean ONLY”) is often simply a suggestion. 
  2. Sort bras by color and care: Hand wash is recommended for any bras with molded cups as the agitation from the wash and spin cycles can cause cups to lose their shape and fit.
  3. Hand-washables: 1-2 oz. of No Sweat sports wash detergent in a small basin or better yet - a large Tupperwear container.  Conventional detergent is overly harsh on elastic fibers and fabrics, causing them to wear out or become brittle way too fast.  Submerge & soak the items thoroughly.  Add the original lid, making sure it's sealed tight, then shake the Tupperware to saturate the items.  Let the bras sit in the solution for 30 minutes. Note that if you are using a larger basin or bath tub, you’ll need to add more laundry soap.
    1. Remove and rinse, paying attention to the area around the elastic which tends to collect the most sweat and grime. 
    2. Pat dry with a towel.
    3. Air Dry.
  4. Machine wash:  Turn the bras inside out.  Add 1-2 oz. No Sweat sports wash detergent in a front load machine. Always choose the 'Cold Wash' for delicate items.
  5. Always air dry the laundry to maintain original fit.
  6. Sensitive skin: always make sure to use fragrance free all natural laundry detergent or sports wash, to avoid allergic reactions.
