A great pair of leggings is a staple in any collection of (female) activewear. In recent years, the Fabletics brand has gained popularity in this space for producing leggings that are comfortable, stylish, and versatile. Here’s how to wash Fabletics leggings to keep them in great shape!
The first thing you should do before washing any garment is check the label for directions. This is as true for Fabletics leggings as it is for anything else in your closet. The manufacturer is the one who will know how to best extend the life of the garment, so get into this habit as part of your laundry routine.
Here’s how to wash your Fabletics leggings in just a few simple steps:
One of the reasons Fabletics leggings are so comfortable for exercise is that they do a great job of wicking moisture away from your body as you work out. When we mentioned above that you should skip fabric softener, that’s because it can interfere with the way your leggings wick moisture. By keeping unnecessary chemicals and other additives out of your washing process, you can maintain your leggings’ performance for as long as possible.
Another easy step you can take to protect your leggings is to wash them in a bag of some kind. A general laundry bag will work well, but you can even use a pillowcase if you don’t have a dedicated laundry bag. The idea here is to prevent your leggings from rubbing or snagging on other items in the wash, so they can come out just as beautiful as they went in.
One of the fun things about Fabletics leggings is the many different colors and patterns that they feature. However, this means that it’s important to separate these leggings—and other bright items—from the rest of your laundry. Yes, this creates “extra work,” to first separate your laundry items and then wash them separately, but the task is worth it to make sure you don’t ruin items that might bleed or shrink or fade.
It’s unlikely that you’d do most of these things with your Fabletics leggings, but just in case:
