The best way to wash leggings properly is to follow the instructions below: Check the label: Read the care label on the leggings for specific manufacturer instructions. The label gives you information about the recommended washing conditions and temperature. Sort the colors: Sort the leggings by color to minimize the risk of discoloration. Wash dark leggings separately from light or white leggings. Close Zippers and Velcro: Fasten any zippers, hooks, or Velcro to other garments of clothing, washing machine, zippers. Pre-treating stains: Treat any stains with a mild stain remover or soap before washing. Proper Wash Cycle: Allow the product to soak for a few minutes before proceeding with the wash cycle. Choose: As a general rule, wash leggings on the gentle or delicate cycle of your washing machine. Use cold or lukewarm water to maintain elasticity and color. Use a mild detergent: Use a mild detergent specifically designed for delicate fabrics. Do not overdose the detergent, as this can leave residue. Avoid fabric conditioners: Leggings made of stretch materials retain their elasticity better if you do not use fabric conditioners. Fabric softeners can also leave residue and affect the leggings' ability to breathe. Hand Wash Option: If you want to be extra careful, leggings can also be hand washed. Fill a sink or tub with cold water and mild detergent. Gently knead, rinse and gently squeeze to remove excess water. Drying Leggings: Leggings should not be tumble dried as the heat can damage the elasticity. Lay the leggings flat on a towel or drying rack and let them air dry. Ironing: Generally, leggings do not require ironing. However, if you want to remove the creases, turn them inside out and iron at a lower temperature. Avoid direct contact of the iron with elastic cuffs or details. By following these instructions, you can ensure that your leggings will keep their fit, elasticity and color for longer.
