How to best treat acrylic, polyester, nylon & PU products:
Wash instantly after sweating
Synthetic materials, especially polyester, can quickly obtain a bad smell if they are in
contact with sweat and not washed instantly after.
So don’t leave your washing bin lying to long, to save your products from bad smells.
keep it cold
If you wash your synthetic materials at too high temperatures, you risk they’ll be
permanently wrinkled. So pay special attention to the care label on synthetic materials.
Acrylic for example cannot take higher temperatures than 40 degrees.
No need for tumble drying
Most synthetic materials dry easily, so take advantage of that and hang them
up to dry outside.
use a special laundry bag to retain microplastic
Synthetic materials release microplastic when being washed.
Therefore, always use a laundry bag to retain the microplastic.
Iron to get your precious items back into shape
Synthetic materials do have a tendency to shrink during wash.
Get your product back to the original shape, by ironing while still damp.
