Product Care

How should I wash and care for my Running Republic Gear?

As a general rule:

  • Machine wash in cold water with like colors on a delicates setting. It’s best to use a gentle detergent too. As with all elastomeric garments, the gentler the washing process, the more life you’ll get out of your tights.
  • Do NOT Tumble dry. Hang to dry in a cool shady area away from sun.
  • Do not use bleach, fabric softeners or dryer sheets
  • Do not iron

When storing, we recommend placing apparel in garment bag to protect from snags and prolonged exposure from sun.
