This article will show you the best way to wash your Nikes and keep them in top condition so you can wear them as often as you like!

What You’ll Need

– A bucket or container. 

– A bleach solution (1 cup bleach, 4 cups water). 

– Soap and dish detergent. 

– Laundry detergent. 

– Rinse cycle on your washing machine, dryer, or clothesline. – To remove any lingering odors, soak items in vinegar for 30 minutes before laundering. 

– Store shoes in a well-ventilated area with high circulation when not wearing them to avoid odors building up. 

– Keep sneaker boxes out of direct sunlight and damp areas like bathrooms.

Step 1: Check the Care Label

Check the care label for instructions on how to clean your Nike Tech Fleece. If there is no care label, or the instructions do not mention cleaning, hand-wash your Nike Tech Fleece garment in cold water with mild detergent and hang it up dry. Make sure that you read these guidelines as you follow them. Step 2: Fill Your Tub With Water: Fill your tub with cool to lukewarm water; add some gentle laundry detergent, baby shampoo, or a delicate soap formulated for delicates if needed. Avoid any detergents containing bleach, fabric softeners, brighteners, or colorants. Once the water has been added to the tub, place your fleece into the soapy water and soak it for about 15 minutes before agitating gently by hand. Use your fingers to gently work out any dirt particles from around zippers or seams.

Step 2: Pre-treat Any Stains

When it comes to stains, the sooner you address them, the better. Apply a pre-treating product like Shout or Spray ‘n Wash and let it sit for five minutes before washing. If you don’t have any of these products on hand, try using dish soap with a bit of water and a toothbrush. Scrub the stain with your makeshift detergent until it’s gone before putting in the laundry. Be sure to use cold water when washing stained items so as not to set the stain. Remember that bleach is never a good idea when cleaning clothes because it can cause discoloration and ruin clothing fibers. Use only if necessary! Step 3: Machine Wash: Load clothes into washer and pour detergent directly into washer drum; liquid Tide Pods work great!

Step 3: Choose the Right Water Temperature

The ideal water temperature is between 95-110°F. Too cold, and the detergent won’t work. Too hot, and you’ll damage the fabric or ruin the shoe’s shape by shrinking it in the dryer. Fill your sink with warm (not too hot!) water and add a squirt of dish soap. Gently swirl the sneaker around in the soapy water for about 10 seconds, then let it sit for a few minutes while you move on to Step 4: Rinse and Squeeze Out Excess Water.

Step 4: Choose the Right Detergent

Wash your clothes with the appropriate type of detergent. Nike Tech clothes are made with a special fabric and need a specific type of detergent. Choose Tide HE High Efficiency detergent if you have a front-loading washing machine, or the regular Tide laundry detergent if you have a top-loading machine. Wash your Nike Tech clothes in cold water, then tumble dry on low heat for best results. Make sure not to use any bleach, because it will break down the synthetic fibers that make up this particular clothing line. When your clothes come out of the dryer, do not iron them until they are completely cooled down. Lastly, be sure not to store your items near a source of extreme heat or humidity as this can cause deterioration over time.

Step 5: Wash on a Delicate Cycle

Wash on a delicate cycle, with cold water and a mild detergent. Do not use bleach or fabric softener, as these can cause the material to degrade over time. If your washing machine doesn’t have a delicate cycle, put it on the lowest spin setting and use only one teaspoon of detergent. The heat from high-speed spin cycles can damage certain fabrics like those found in sneakers. Another option is to handwash them in the sink with cold water and a gentle soap like Woolite or Dreft. Lay flat to dry.

Step 6: Hang Dry or Tumble Dry

To dry your Nike Tech Fleece, you have two options: hang dry or tumble dry. If you hang dry, use a clothesline or drying rack and allow it to air-dry for up to 24 hours. If you tumble dry, make sure the heat is set at a low temperature and tumble for one hour on the lowest setting. Check every 10 minutes. After one hour of tumbling, remove your Nike Tech Fleece from the machine, shake off excess water and lay flat to finish drying with paper towels (or a towel) nearby so that you can blot out any moisture that accumulates during this process.
