Sort and Prepare: Separate your Abercrombie clothing items based on color and fabric type. This helps prevent color bleeding and ensures appropriate care for different materials. Empty pockets and turn the clothing items inside out. This helps protect the exterior surface during the washing process.
Machine or Hand Wash: Machine Washing: Place the clothing items, such as joggers or sweatpants, in a mesh garment bag or pillowcase to prevent damage from rubbing against other items. Use a washing machine on a gentle cycle with cold water.

Detergent and Rinse: Use an activewear detergent specifically designed for synthetic fabrics, such as ACTIVE detergent. Follow the instructions on the detergent packaging for the appropriate amount to use. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as they can damage the fabric. Rinse the clothing items thoroughly with clean water, ensuring there are no soap suds left. You may need to rinse multiple times to remove all traces of detergent.
Drying: For joggers, sweatpants, and other activewear, air drying is recommended. Never use a clothes dryer, as the heat can damage the fabric and cause shrinkage.
Lay the clothing items flat on a clean surface, away from direct sunlight, to allow them to air dry. Ensure proper ventilation to expedite the drying process and prevent odors.
Finishing Touches: Once the clothing items are completely dry, you can give them a final touch-up if needed. Use a cool iron or steamer on low heat if necessary, following the fabric’s care instructions. Fold or hang the garments neatly to store them, ready for your next wear.
