Here are some tips to get the longest life out of your garment:
Check the care and content label. This label has garment specific information on how to care for your Perspective gear.
When In Doubt:
Machine wash your garments in cold water and tumble dry on low
Cold Wash/Air Dry:
Machine wash in cold water and air dry (literally air dry, not your dryer setting). This will help to protect the life of the fiber and shape of your garment.
Taking Care Of Bright Colors:
To care for your bright colored gear, we suggest that you:
- Wash bright colors alone before you wear them.
- Wash according to care instructions (in most cases that will be cold wash/air dry).
- Continue washing bright colored gear with similar colors.
- When wet, keep bright colored hear away from other fabrics.
Other Tips To Extend The Life
Like With Like:
Turn your gear inside out and wash it with other synthetic fabrics (e.g., polyester, 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.
Avoid Fabric Softener:
Avoiding using fabric softener because it coats the technical fabric and inhibits its wicking capabilities. In the event that you use fabric softener, wash your items again (without the fabric softener) and they should return to their normal wicking level as the softener is washed away.
