Due to the sublimation lycra fabric, we would like to offer the following tips which you may find helpful to keep your Tikiboo leggings and capris in their best and brightest conditions.
Please follow the instructions below:
- Avoid all rough and sharp surfaces
- Do not rub up against any rough surfaces
- Do not iron
- Do not bleach
- Do not tumble dry
- Avoid fabric softener
These items can be machine washed but please be warned that they have a drawstring waist and to ensure this stays within the leggings please simply tie them in a bow when washing. Loose strings can get tangled around other items in the washing machine and be pulled out so to avoid having to re-thread please tie the string.
If you find the string has come out simply attach to a hair grip/bobby pin and thread back through.
When washing your leggings use on a cool wash or hand wash for the best results, This will help to protect the life of the LYCRA® fibre and the shape of your garment.
Hang to air dry, this will prevent any heat damage to the LYCRA® that a tumble dryer may cause. Drying naturally will maintain the shape of the garment and prolong the life of it.
Avoid fabric softener, this can coat the technical fabrics and inhibit the garments sweat wicking properties. It can also make the item slippery and prone to falling down.
If your garments start to feel as though they are losing their shape rewash them in a cool wash without fabric softener and they should return to their correct state.
Turn your leggings inside out and wash it with other synthetic fabrics (e.g.LYCRA® 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.
We are unable to offer refunds or exchanges to people if these steps are not followed, we try to bring as much awareness to this as possible so please do take care of your leggings and they will last a long long time!
