Garment Care Guide: Keeping Your Bondi Active Wear Looking Its Best

At Bondi Active, we understand the importance of maintaining the quality and longevity of your activewear. Follow these simple care instructions to ensure your garments stay vibrant, comfortable, and durable, workout after workout.

Preparation & Washing:

  • Prep Your Garment: Remove any removable padding and unfasten buttons. This helps maintain the shape and integrity of each piece.
  • Hand Wash: For garments labeled 'hand wash only', clean separately with mild detergent in cold water. This preserves the fabric's feel and color.
  • Machine Wash: If the item is machine washable, turn it inside out and place it in a wash bag. Use a gentle cycle with mild detergent and wash with similar colors to prevent bleeding.
  • Avoid Harsh Treatment: Do not wring out garments to avoid stretching. Instead, gently squeeze or spin dry to remove excess water.

Drying & Storage:

  • Drying: Hang garments inside out in the shade to air dry. Direct sunlight can fade colors, while indoor air drying helps preserve them.
  • Color Care: Pre-wash new garments with a teaspoon of salt to set the colors, especially for items that aren’t colourfast.
  • Avoid Mixing: Do not wash your activewear with abrasive materials like towels to prevent pilling.

General Care:

  • Bleach & Chemicals: Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, which can degrade the fabric over time.
  • Rough Surfaces & Heat: Be mindful of rough surfaces and direct heat sources, as they can damage the fabric. This is especially crucial for textured materials and garments with reflective prints.
  • Drying Methods: Do not tumble dry or iron your activewear. High heat can alter the fit and weaken the fibers.
  • Dry Cleaning: Avoid dry cleaning, which uses chemicals that can be harsh on performance fabrics.

Special Notes:

  • Soaking: Avoid leaving garments wet or soaked to prevent colors from bleeding.
  • Storage: Store your clean, dry activewear in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

By following these care instructions, you can ensure your Bondi Active wear remains a key part of your active lifestyle for the long haul. Should you have any specific care questions, feel free to contact us at
