Fashion Inspiration Laundry Pickup & Delivery

Tom Brady officially retired from the NFL today, and there is a lot to be said about his success. One factor that has contributed to his success is his attention to detail- and if you can’t be Tom Brady, at least you can care for your athletic gear in the same way. Yoga pants sinking no matter what you do? Not anymore they won’t (at least not with CleanBlink).

Just as athletes like Tom Brady pay close attention to their training and nutrition, it’s important to also take proper care of athletic clothing to keep it in top condition. Here are some tips for laundering athletic clothing that will keep your gear in top shape, inspired by football’s one and only.

A Tom Brady-Based Step-By-Step Guide.

  1. Don’t just dump them in the hamper- dry them out! We know, we know. It smells and there’s nothing you would rather do than stick them into the bottom of your hamper. But let them dry! Crack a window open if you have to because that extra moisture needs to be released from the fabric.
  2. Only when dry, Read the Label: Like Tom Brady’s strategic game plans, athletic garments have their own specific care instructions. Look for care labels that indicate the garment is machine washable and can be dried in the dryer.
  3. Use Cold Water: Cold water is best for washing athletic clothing, just as cold water is used to soothe sore muscles after a tough workout. Hot water can cause shrinkage and fading, while cold water helps to keep the fabric looking new and fresh.
  4. Avoid Bleach: Avoid using bleach when washing athletic clothing, just as athletes avoid harsh chemicals in their diets. They damage the fibers and cause the garment to lose its shape and color. Instead, opt for a mild detergent specifically designed for athletic wear. Unwilling? You’ll actually end up affecting your skin and giving your shirt yellow rings around the armpits.
  5. Air Dry: Just as a slow and steady pace is important in a game, avoiding putting athletic clothing in the dryer is key for optimal care. The high heat can cause shrinkage and damage to the fabric. Instead, hang your garments once again up to air dry or lay them flat on a dry towel.

Other Pro Tips, But Not From Tom Brady

  • Stop Overstuffing the Washer: Overloading the washer can cause the clothing to become tangled and stretched, which can lead to loss of shape and damage to the fabric. Just as it’s important to pace oneself during a workout, wash athletic clothing in small, manageable loads. This is one of the NUMBER ONE reasons why your yoga pants are stretching out!
  • Storing your Stuff Properly: Store athletic clothing in a cool, dry place to help prevent fading and damage, just as a good coach prepares for the next game. Wipe out your drawers to absolve your storage spaces from any potential moisture.

What now?

In conclusion, taking care of your athletic clothing is essential to ensure that it lasts and performs at its best as you get your fitness goals going in this second month of the year. Still, worried?

No biggie- could make it easy for yourself and send it to CleanBlink.
