Taking Care Of Your Mojo Compression Garments
Taking care of your Mojo will help them last longer and extend their life. Washing brings back elasticity and this insures you are getting the proper compression. Washing after each use will also remove built up oils/sweat which leads to garments tearing & ripping as well as to help prevent the buildup of bacteria.
There are several things to keep in mind when cleaning your Mojo Compression socks but you can wash your garment by hand or use a washing machine per these directions.
- Wash on gentle cycle - placing your garment in a mesh laundry bag helps protect them during wash cycles
- See drying instructions below
- Fill a small tub or basin with lukewarm water. Dip the socks in the water, then remove. Add a mild detergent or soap to the water and mix the water with your hand to circulate the soap. Place the socks back in the water and let them sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
- (Do not use hot water because the heat might damage the elastic compression. Do not use chlorine bleach or fabric softeners)
- After soaking, gently rub the socks to remove dirt and oil. Squeeze them out and rinse to remove any soap. Be sure to squeeze them gently and not pull the socks. Pulling can result in an imperfect fit when trying to wear them again.
- Rinse stockings out until all soap is removed. When the water squeezes out clear, they are clean. Squeeze out as much water as you can.
- Either lay the socks flat to dry in a cool or warm place or hang dry.
- Do not place near heat. Do not wring them out, as it may damage the compression.
Keeping your Mojo Compression socks and sleeves clean is important to keeping them in peak condition. Remember that typical compression garments begin to loose their effectiveness after approximately 3 months and even though they may still look good the compression level may have gone down below it's manufactured specifications.
