Caring For Your Garments
Due to the sublimation lycra fabric, we would like to offer the following tips which you may find helpful to keep your Tikiboo leggings and capris in their best and brightest conditions.
Please follow the instructions below:
Standard Sublimation Garments
- Avoid all rough and sharp surfaces
- Do not rub up against any rough surfaces
- Do not iron
- Do not bleach
- Do not tumble dry
- Avoid fabric softener
Foil Printed Garments
- Turn them inside-out.
- Use a wash-by-hand method, with cold water and a mild detergent.
- Hang dry.
- Do not iron over the foil.
- Do not tumble-dry.
This is to ensure they remain as vibrant as possible and the detergent does not damage the foil.
When washing sports bras, please remove any padding if you are machine washing, this will stop the padding becoming misshapen. The padding can be hand washed separately.
When washing bikinis we advise to hand wash as the machine may pull the strings out if they get tangled or cause damage to the clips.
When washing marble tracksuits wash with similar colours as the item is designed to fade into a more marbled effect over time. Tikiboo Ltd cannot be held responsible for any garments that have absorbed the tracksuit dye due to being washed with incorrect colours. For best results was with other black items.
Please take care when tying items around your waist during activities as this may cause damage to your leggings if the items rub against your leggings. Be specifically wary of any items containing velcro as this will snag your fitness tights. Care for your leggings as you would a pair of tights.
Please take care with the zip pocket, this pocket is designed to store a key, bank card or even a phone on a run, however if it is constantly pulled in and out on a run it could damage the pocket. Please take care when inserting items and pulling them out to avoid pulling the zip away from the fabric.
When washing your leggings use on a cool wash or hand wash for the best results, This will help to protect the life of the LYCRA® fibre and the shape of your garment.
Hang to air dry, this will prevent any heat damage to the LYCRA® that a tumble dryer may cause. Drying naturally will maintain the shape of the garment and prolong the life of it.
Avoid fabric softener, this can coat the technical fabrics and inhibit the garments sweat wicking properties. It can also make the item slippery and prone to falling down.
If your garments start to feel as though they are losing their shape rewash them in a cool wash without fabric softener and they should return to their correct state.
Turn your leggings inside out and wash it with other synthetic fabrics (e.g.LYCRA® nylon, etc.) and avoid anything abrasive, such as denim or garments with Velcro® or zippers. These can be harmful, especially in a repetitive motion like in a washer or dryer.
Be careful with any jewellery, finger nails etc when pulling on, treat the leggings like you would a pair of tights, the fabric is strong but may damage if snagged.
We are unable to offer refunds or exchanges to people if these steps are not followed, we try to bring as much awareness to this as possible so please do take care of your leggings and they will last a long long time!
