Product Care

We want you to have the freedom to treat your clothes with the same tough love you give your workouts.
Here are some tips to get the longest life out of your garment:


Best Bet
Always check the care and content label for specific information on how to care for your gear.

Cold Wash, Air Dry
Machine wash in cold water and lay flat to dry. This helps protect the life of the LYCRA® fibre and the shape of your gear.

Taking Care of Bright Colours
We suggest you:

  • Wash bright colours alone before you wear them
  • Continue washing bright coloured gear with similar colours
  • When wet, keep bright coloured gear away from other fabrics

Like with Like
Turn your gear inside out and wash it with other synthetic fabrics (e.g., Luxtreme, Nulu, etc.) and avoid anything abrasive, such as denim or garments with Velcr or zippers.

Avoid Mixing Luon with Cotton
Wash your Luon separate from your hoodies and towels. Cotton fluff (especially from towels) gets attached to Luon.

Sweat-Wicking Gear and Fabric Softener Don’t Mix
Avoid using fabric softener because it coats the technical fabric and inhibits its wicking capabilities.


Acer Leggings

Luon, Luxtreme, Everlux, Nulu, Nulux, Rulu, Seamless, Swift, Warpstreme
We recommend:

  • machine wash cold with similar fabrics
  • avoid fabric softeners and abrasive fabrics/materials
  • hang to dry (or tumble dry on low)

Natural blend family, Merino wool, Boolux, Cashlux
We recommend:

  • machine wash cold with similar fabrics
  • avoid fabric softeners and abrasive fabrics/materials
  • lay flat to dry

We recommend:

  • Cold wash, tumble dry low
  • Close all zipper and Velcro closures
  • Use the least amount of detergent possible to clean it effectively—leftover detergent may inhibit the water-repellency


Eek! I used fabric softener with my sweat-wicking gear, is it ruined?
No. Wash your items again without fabric softener and they should return to their normal wicking level as the softener is washed away.

How do I wash my Hera bags?
We recommend spot cleaning your bag with a cloth, a little soap and water.

How do I wash my bands?
Washing is especially important for slipless headbands whose 'sliplessness' can be affected by hair oils. We'd suggest putting them into a delicates bag. Cold water and lay flat to dry is best.

Do I need to take the cups out of my sports bra to wash it?
We find that removing cups when washing our sports bras helps them to keep their shape. To wash the cups, hand-wash them in cool or warm water and lay them flat to dry.
