Maintenance of compression clothing is important to prevent damage and minimize wear. Here are some tips to make sure you keep your equipment in good condition:

1. Avoid leaving compression garments in your gear bag for long periods of time. It is recommended to wash it as soon as you get home. This will prevent the development of unpleasant odors and bacteria in a short time.

2. Check the care label. Most compression gear comes with specific washing instructions. Follow these guidelines to ensure you are using the correct cleaning methods.

3. If you choose to wash the equipment in the washing machine, turn it inside out before putting it in the machine. If possible, use a special bag for delicates to reduce friction and shrinkage of the fabric. Avoid washing with clothes that have tabs or zippers, as they can snag the fabric.

4. If you prefer to hand wash your equipment, check the label for water temperature and use a mild detergent. Use gentle strokes to avoid stretching or damaging the fabric. Rinse the equipment with clean water several times to remove the detergent.

5. Avoid tumble drying compression equipment. Excessive heat can damage the material and cause the fabrics to tear. Make sure the equipment is completely dry before storing it in the cabinet.

Keep in mind that compression clothing is generally made from super-stretchy textiles that reduce moisture and allow for quick drying.

By following the care instructions, you will be able to keep the compression garment in good condition and have a longer lifespan.
