Washing Instructions

6mm Knee Sleeves 

Now that you have your knee sleeves, let’s talk about how to wash and care for them. To prolong the life of your knee sleeves while still getting them clean and stink-free, wash them by hand in warm water with standard clothing detergent or dish soap. Once the water is coming out clean, rinse the knee sleeves and air dry. The other option would be to throw them in your washer machine, but place the settings on a gentle cycle and use cold water. Then proceed to let them air dry. 


Self-Locking Weight Lifting Belt 

To wash your belt, use dish soap or standard clothing detergent and a soft bristle brush. Brush gently to minimize wear and tear to the belt. Once clean, allow to air dry.


Wrist Sweat Bands

You can wash your wrist bands in cold water (optionally with your like colored clothes) without any fabric softener. Once cleaned, hang to air dry.

IsoGrip Hand Grips

If you find your IsoGrip Hand Grips to be covered in chalk and sweat and are beginning to slip on the bar a bit, there are a couple things you can do. First, take a little soap and water and wash off the front of the grip (the rubber part). Make sure you dry it off well before reusing. Next, see if that improves the stick of the rubber on the bar. If it doesn't then check the bar. Your bar may also be coated in chalk, sweat, and whatever else. Soap and water should do the trick for that as well. Another tip to clean off the bar is to use a barbell brush which may help remove any debris that has been stuck to that bar for much longer. If you're finding you're slipping on the backside of the grips (the cloth part), you can wash them but it is advised to hand wash them in cold water to preserve the grip integrity. After hand washing, you should then air dry them.
