Q. Bra Pads (Product Care)
Method: Make sure to remove your bra cups before putting your sports bra to wash. This helps to keep their shape and for them to last longer. To wash, hand wash in cool/warm water and lay them dry. To properly care, never wash in the washing machine.
Q. Yoga Mat (Product Care)
You should never leave your yoga mat sticky with sweat. Our TPE Yoga Mats may be odorless but sweat is not. Cleaning is very easy, here are two ways how:
Method One: Wipe soiled areas with a damp sponge/cloth dipped in very mild laundry detergent. Then rinse off with clean, warm water. Hang up to air dry.
Method Two (for deeply soiled mats/outdoors): Make your own vinegar solution with 200ml white vinegar into a tub of warm water. Lay your mat in and soak for 20 minutes. Rub your mat thoroughly and rinse off with clean water. Hang up to air dry.
Psst: Be careful to NOT use any coarse scrubber as it will damage your mat.
It’s normal for your mat to feel ‘powdery’ because this powdery feel helps absorb oils, water, and eliminates the slip-slide effects. From time to time, you may also sprinkle some baby powder or baking soda to help maintain your mat.
Q. Waterproof bag (Product Care)
Our waterproof bags may be designed to withstand the harsh elements of outdoorsy sports, but they still need some TLC to prolong their lifespan.
Method: Empty out your bag and remove the straps. Then, wash the straps separately with a mixture of lukewarm water and soap before hanging them dry.
To clean the bag, brush off the pack inside and out to remove dirt, rocks, or any debris thoroughly. Then, wipe off stains/soiled areas with a damp cloth (you may use antibacterial soap/mild detergent/white vinegar & water solution).
Then rinse through with clean water before air-drying your bag, indoors, away from direct sunlight as UV rays can degrade the fabric and color.
Make sure to dry it completely inside and out or else mold could affect the bag in the long run.
Q. Bright Colored Products (Product Care)
Sportswear comes in a lot of bright colors and we want to keep it as bright as when you first got them.
Method One: Sort by color
Sorting them out by their brightness and color not only prevents accidental staining (on whites) but also keeps colors from fading.
Method Two: Turn clothes inside out
This is an additional step to prevent your bright apparels’ colors from fading.
Method Three: Line dry and keep away from the sun
Always line dry your sportswear to ensure the colors are protected. Make sure to line dry indoors and away from the sun as heat fades color very fast.
Method Four: Use cold water
Not only cold water helps maintain the colors of the apparel, but it is also good for the environment.
Q. Sweating Waistband (Product Care)
Even though our sweating waistband is sweat-wicking, there will still be sweat droplets on the surface. Make sure to always clean your waistband after every use.
1. Mix mild soap and warm water.
2. Damp towel in warm water and soap solution,
3. Properly wipe the waistband down.
4. Wipe again to get off excess water
5. Air-dry the belt until fully dry before storing. (roll and store back in ziplock)
Please note that you should not wear our ViQ Sweating Waistband overnight or to bed. This is due to the fact that keeping perspiration sitting too long on your skin may cause rashes and irritation. Also, perspiration contains components that cause fading of colors if soaked in for too long, so this may cause color transfer if in contact for a prolonged period of time.
