HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR KAPOWS

Love your Kapows and they’ll love you back. Here’s how to look after your new meggings.

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

KAPOW ORIGINALS          

  • Always turn the meggings inside out.
  • Hand-wash in cold water with a mild detergent. A few drops will do.
  • Drip dry flat away from direct heat and sunlight.

KAPOW PERFORMANCE MEGGINGS

  • Hand-wash in cold water with a mild detergent. A few drops will do.
  • Alternatively, place in a care bag and machine wash cold on a Gentle or Delicates cycle.
  • Drip dry flat away from direct heat and sunlight.

METALLIC, HOLOGRAPHIC, AND WET LOOK MEGGINGS

  • Avoid over-washing. Most times all you need is to dust them off and you’ll be good to go.
  • Always turn the meggings inside out.
  • Hand-wash in cold water with a mild detergent. A few drops will do.
  • Dry flat away from direct heat and sunlight.
  • Avoid excess contact with suntan lotions, deodorants, make-up, perfume and harsh chemicals such as petrol.
  • Due to the unique printing process, the metallic print may dull over time. Avoid rough or abrasive surfaces. When storing, hang them up – don’t roll ‘em or fold ‘em.

THINGS TO AVOID

  • Do not tumble dry or dry clean.
  • Do not iron (not that you’ll ever need to.)
  • Do not use fabric softener. It leaves a residue on spandex that can dull the finish and attract bacteria that causes a funky smell.
  • Never use chlorine bleach to whiten or remove stain. It will destroy the spandex fibers.
  • Do not pack or store when wet.

HOW TO REMOVE STAINS FROM YOUR KAPOWS

To remove stains, tackle right away. Dab or soak in cold water (never hot as this can set the stain.) Apply a few drops of mild liquid detergent and give it a gentle rub (no scrubbing!) then follow the washing guidelines above.

 Boom! Now you know how to look after your Kapows. Rock on, homey.
