We love our socks, it’s true. Because there’s so much to love! Their comfort, their style, those colors, their versatility, and the fact that wearing them is like a walkable spa-treatment for your legs. :) Our compression socks are a health investment that lasts, so help them last longer with some simple washing TLC.
It takes time for Lilys to get smelly (thank you, moisture-wicking and antimicrobial material!), but eventually, you’ll probably want to add them to your laundry since it’s still taboo to boast about not having had to wash your socks in three weeks (true story). When you do, give them the proper treatment by following these easy steps:
- Machine wash separately in cold water on delicate cycle.
- Do not use bleach or fabric softener.
- Do not mix with cottons or other fabrics.
- Line dry.
(These are probably the same guidelines for most of your exercise gear.)
For top treatment, use a detergent that can really stand up to your worst odors. We’re big fans of Defunkify, a high-performing detergent that also has high standards when it comes to less toxicity and more transparency. In fact, we’re such big fans that through the end of March, we’re including 2 free samples of Defunkify with every order! That’s up to 12 loads of odor-crushing soap so that you and your socks can keep on goal-crushing. Talk about a power combo!
Our socks are built to last; show your socks some love and they will love you for a long time!
