Hey there, before you toss your BUNNYE goodies in the washing machine have a read through our care instructions. It only takes a couple of minutes, but it will help you prolong the life of your activewear considerably. And you'll probably want to hold on to those delicious turquoise leopard leggings. Just sayin'...
TO CONDITION OR NOT TO CONDITION, THAT IS THE QUESTION!
Well, as tempting as it may be, do not use softener. We use deluxe, innovative materials, and using fabric softener can deteriorate the texture and reduce elasticity over time. Keep it simple.
WHEN YOU'RE BEAT AFTER A WORKOUT AND YOU DON'T WANT TO DO LAUNDRY.
You don't skip leg day... so don't skip the laundry! Especially after an intense workout session. The bacteria leave behind an unpleasant odour which over time can impregnate into the fabric. Additionally, if you leave sweaty workout clothes in your laundry basket for too long the scent can transfer to other items. If you're short on time simply give your pieces a quick rinse with cold water to wash away the bacteria; then, follow up with a proper washing over the next days.
WINNING LAUNDRY TIPS? YES, PLEASE!
Repeat after us: I promise to wash my BUNNYE pieces separately from other garments. If that's too much of a hassle, please use a laundry bag to keep your BUNNYE workout clothes separate in the washing machine. We suggest you opt for the eco conscious brand Guppyfriend which helps fight microplastics pollution.
Try as much possible to wash your activewear together with similar fabrics and colours. Otherwise you run the risk of your gorgeous white leggings turning pink thanks to a misplaced red sock; you have been warned! Turn items inside out before washing to help prevent colour bleeding, reduce rubbing and protect prints and special textures. Pro tip: avoid washing activewear together with towels or fleece as this will cause lint to transfer. And we all know how unpleasant that is.
We recommend removing the pads from our BUNNYE bras while washing, as it helps keeping the original shape of the items for longer.
ICE ICE BABY
Hot water cycles are the arch enemy of vibrant, stretchy, sassy activewear. To help prevent colours from fading or transferring and to avoid shrinkage, simply opt for a cold or light warm wash. Furthermore, washing clothes in hot water can cause certain stains, such as sweat, to set in.
HANG DRY AND KISS YOUR DRYER GOODBYE!
If you don't want your perfectly fitting tank top to end up looking more like a crop top, skip the dryer. The intense heat from the dryer usually leads to shrinkage. Also, the heat can reduce the elasticity of the garments and thus alter their performance. After washing, simply hang your workout clothes to dry in a well-ventilated area. Please avoid placing your BUNNYE pieces to dry in direct sunlight as this will cause colours to fade quicker.
