Knee Guards - Wash & Care

Step 1 - Prep

  • Undo all strap and buttons
  • Shake off any surface dirt
  • Wipe clean with a damp microfiber cloth
  • Use a soft brush if required


Step 2 - Which Detergent?

Use (in order of preference)

  • Purpose-made tech-wash
  • Neutral unscented liquid detergent
  • Woolen liquid detergent
  • Baby shampoo

Completely Avoid

  • Any type of granular powder detergent
  • Any type of heavily scented liquid detergent


Step 3 - Soak

  • Dissolve 1 cap of detergent in bucket of water, per pair of knee guards
  • 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.


Step 4 - Wash and Rinse

  • Agitate and scrub with your hands
  • Focus on spots with grease and grime
  • Repeat until clean
  • Rinse multiple times until free of detergent
  • Avoid using hard, abrasive brushes. Use a soft brush if required


Step 5 – Let Dry and Store

  • Place the knee guards vertically or put them on a hanger in a cool ventilated shaded area
  • Once 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 knee guards to direct sunlight while drying.
