How often should I wash my hoodie or sweatshirt?

At RB, we advocate cleaning your sports bra only when necessary, which not only conserves water but also prolongs the life of your garment. Since sports bras come in direct contact with sweat and oils from your skin, washing them after every one to three wears is generally recommended to maintain hygiene and freshness. However, if your sports bra isn't noticeably soiled or smelly, you can extend the time between washes. Ultimately, it is essential to listen to your body and use your discretion to determine when your sports bra needs laundering. This mindful approach aligns with our commitment to environmental sustainability and product longevity.

What is the best way to take care of my sports bra?

To maintain the quality and longevity of your sports bras, we recommend washing it in cold water with like colors and air drying flat.

Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as they can damage the fabric and affect its performance. With proper care, your sports bras will continue to provide support and comfort throughout many workouts to come.

Can I put my sports bra in the dryer?

No, we don't recommend using the dryer.

Can I iron my sports bra if it becomes wrinkled?

The iron is not a friend of your sports bra. It's best to wear it and naturally iron out the wrinkles through body heat.

How do I remove stains from my sporst bra?

Here's how you can remove stains from your sports bra in an eco-friendly way:

Baking Soda Paste: Make a paste using baking soda and water. Apply this paste directly to the stained areas of your sports bra. Baking soda is a natural and gentle abrasive that helps lift stains without harsh chemicals.

White Vinegar Solution: Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray this solution onto the stained areas of your sports bra and let it sit for a few minutes. White vinegar is effective in breaking down stains and eliminating odors.

Sunlight: Place your stained sports bra in direct sunlight after applying the baking soda paste or vinegar solution. Sunlight acts as a natural bleaching agent and can help fade stains. Allow the bra to air dry in the sunlight for a few hours.

Hand Washing: Wash your sports bra by hand using a mild detergent. Opt for eco-friendly laundry detergents that are free from harsh chemicals and artificial fragrances. Gently scrub the stained areas with your fingers to help lift the remaining residue.

Air Dry: After washing, air dry your sports bra instead of using a dryer. Line drying or hanging your bra outdoors reduces energy consumption and minimizes environmental impact.

Repeat if Necessary: If the stain persists after the first attempt, repeat the eco-friendly stain removal process until the stain is completely gone. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals, as they can be harmful to the environment and may damage the fabric of your sports bra.

By following these eco-friendly stain removal methods, you can effectively remove stains from your sports bra while minimizing your environmental footprint.

Can I use bleach when washing my sports bra?

Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as they can damage the fabric and affect its performance.

Can I use fabric softener when washing my sports bra?

Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as they can damage the fabric and affect its performance.

What should I do if my sports bra starts to pill?

Pilling is a natural process that happens to most fabrics — even the most luxurious ones. Pilling doesn't necessarily mean that the garment is made of a poor-quality fabric, nor is it a reason to throw away or return it. These pesky fabric pills result from normal wear and tear—broken clothing fibers on the surface become tangled together. Over time, these threads clump together, forming the characteristic lint ball stuck to your clothing. After washing and drying your clothes, look to see if any pills remain. If so, you can carefully remove them using a fabric comb or battery-operated pill/lint remover. These methods help carefully cut or scrape away the fabric pills so they are no longer attached to your clothing.

Can I wear my sports bra in chlorinated water, such as a swimming pool?

While you can wear your sports bra in chlorinated water like a swimming pool, we advise against it for best results. Chlorine can affect the item's longevity, compromising its durability over time. While occasional wear in chlorinated water may not cause immediate damage, prolonged exposure could have an impact. Therefore, to ensure your sports bra stays in tip-top condition for as long as possible, avoiding prolonged exposure to chlorinated water is best.

How should I store my sports bra when not in use?

If your sports bras contain pads, we recommend placing them flat in a drawer without folding.

How should I dispose of my sports bra when it's no longer in wearable condition?

When it's time to dispose of your sports bra, consider these eco-friendly options:

1. *Textile Recycling*: Look for textile recycling programs or facilities in your area. Many communities offer textile recycling services where you can drop off old clothing, including bras, for recycling. These textiles are often sorted, shredded, and repurposed into new materials such as insulation or cleaning cloths.

2. *Clothing Donation*: If your sports bra is still in decent condition but no longer suitable for you, consider donating it to a local charity or thrift store. Many organizations accept gently used clothing items and distribute them to those in need or resell them to fund charitable programs.

3. *Upcycling or Repurposing*: Get creative and repurpose your old sports bra into something new. You can cut it up to use as cleaning rags, hair ties, or even craft projects like braided rugs or fabric jewelry. Upcycling extends the lifespan of the material and reduces waste.

4. *Last Resort: Landfill*: If none of the above options are available or feasible, and your sports bra is not suitable for recycling or donation, it may need to be disposed of in the landfill. However, this should be considered a last resort due to the environmental impact. Try to explore other avenues for disposal or repurposing first.

By choosing eco-friendly disposal methods, you can reduce our collective impact on the earth.
