We want you to have the freedom to treat your clothes with the same tough love you give your workouts.
Here are some tips to get the longest life out of your garment:
Check the care and content label. This label has garment specific information on how to care for your lululemon gear.
When in doubt:
If you're rushing off to your class, machine wash your garments in cold water and tumble dry on low.
Cold wash/Air dry
Machine wash in cold water and air dry (and we don't mean the setting on your dryer). This will help to protect the life of the LYCRA® fibre and the shape of your garment.
Almost 60% of our total water impact and 20% of our total carbon emissions occurs when our guests launder their garments. Cold wash and air dry your gear if you want to show the earth a little love.
Taking care of bright colours
Keep it light and bright. To care for your bright coloured gear, we suggest that you:
Like with like:
Turn your gear inside out and wash it with other synthetic fabrics (e.g., Luxtreme, 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.
Avoid mixing Luon with Cotton:
Wash your luon separate from your hoodies and towels. We know that cotton fluff (especially from towels) gets attached to luon.
Luon and Fabric Softener Don't Mix:
Avoid using fabric softener because it coats the technical fabric and inhibits its wicking capabilities.
Machine washing gear that contains LYCRA® fibres and hanging it to dry will protect and extend the life of your gear.

How do I wash my Scuba Hoodie?
For washing our cotton fleece Scuba Hoodies, we recommend putting them in a cold wash with your other cottons and either hanging them to dry or drying them on low.
Eek! I used fabric softener with my luon, is it ruined?
No. The fabric softener clogs the pores of the technical fabrics, so it makes the fabric not wick away sweat as well. Wash your items again (without the fabric softener) and they should return to their normal wicking level as the softener is washed away.
How do I wash my lululemon bag?
We recommend spot cleaning your bag with a cloth, a little soap and water.
How do I wash my headband?
Our headbands can be washed like our other technical garment (washing is especially important for slipless headbands whose 'sliplessness' can be affected by hair oils). We'd suggest putting them into a delicates bag so they don't get caught on anything. Cold water and lay flat to dry is best.
Do I need to take the cups out of my sports bra to wash it?
We find that removing cups when washing our sports bras helps them to keep their shape. To wash the cups, hand-wash them in cool or warm water and lay them flat to dry.
