Base Layer - Wash & Care

Step 1 - Prep
  • Shake off any surface dirt
  • Flip inside out
Step 2 - Which Detergent?
  • Use (in order of preference)
    • Purpose-made tech-wash
    • Neutral unscented liquid detergent
    • Woolen liquid detergent
    • Baby shampoo

    • Any type of granular powder detergent
    • Any type of heavily scented liquid detergent
Step 3 - Soak
  • Dissolve 1 cap of detergent, in a bucket of lukewarm water.
  • Soak for at least 30 minutes
  • Avoid hot water. Test with your fingers first. If it’s too hot for your fingers, it's too hot for your gear.
  • While soaking, make sure to fill the inside of the socks with the detergent water, and then leave the Base Layer to soak for 30 minutes
Step 4 - Wash and Rinse
  • Keep the Base Layer flipped inside out
  • Agitate and scrub gently with your hands
  • Repeat until clean
  • Rinse multiple times until free of detergent
  • Avoid using brushes
  • Flip the Base Layer the right side out and repeat the wash and rinse process
Step 5 - Let Dry and Store
  • Flip the Base Layer inside out. Hang dry in a cool ventilated shaded area.
  • Once the inside is dry, flip the Base Layer the right side out. Hang dry in a cool ventilated shaded area.
  • Once completely dry, store in a cool, ventilated moisture-free place, away from house-dust
  • Do not wring. Do not tumble dry. Do not iron. Do not bleach. Do not expose to direct sunlight while drying.
