CARE OF SPORTS AND OUTDOOR CLOTHING
How to take care of RUNO clothing so that it serves us for as long as possible?
Ahead of you is a practical guide to caring for our sports and outdoor clothing. When sewing RUNO products, we use the highest quality sports and cotton knits, which have a number of properties. High breathability, UPV 50+ filters, moisture wicking, excellent thermal insulation or maintaining a constant body temperature are just some of them. Taking care of sportswear in the right way will preserve its technical properties, so that it will serve us for many years.

CLOTHING MADE OF SPORTS MATERIALS:
➜ Sportswear should not be washed at excessive temperatures. A poorly chosen washing temperature can make sportswear deteriorate faster and make it less and less air permeable. It may also lose its technical properties.
➜ Wash synthetic garments according to the instructions on the label, at a maximum of 30 – 40 degrees.
➜ So me washing machines have a SPORT wash function, ideal for caring for sports fabrics.
➜ Wash cycling jerseys and sweatshirts with zippers fastened to avoid damage during spinning.
➜ Avoid contact between backpacks and bags with Velcro and your sportswear. Use cycling saddles without sharp parts that could damage your shorts.
➜ Do not wash sportswear together with outer garments that have sharp straps or buttons. Also, avoid washing technical shirts with cycling gloves or shorts that have Velcro fasteners. Your sportswear may be damaged during washing.
➜ Wash sportswear frequently to avoid bacterial growth in the laundry basket.
➜ Do not tumble dry sportswear as this very often results in a loss of elasticity.
➜ Do not iron technical clothing. After washing, hang the garment on the dryer and leave it to dry.
CLOTHING MADE OF COTTON FABRICS
➜ Cotton garments should not be washed at excessively high temperatures, as this can lead to shrinkage of the knitted fabric.
➜ Drape sweatshirts are sewn from a knitted fabric with a “teddy bear” finish on the inside, which may come off slightly in the early days. This is a natural phenomenon of cotton fibers closing up, which can last until the first two or three washes.
➜ Wash cotton on a delicate program at a maximum of 40 degrees.
➜ It is a good idea to wash clothes on the left side with similar colors, so they will keep their color longer.
➜ Set the centrifugation of cotton garments to a maximum of 800 rpm, so that the garments will not tend to twist and crease.
➜ Drying cotton clothes: after removing from the washing machine, shake the clothes a few times to make the material even. Then perfectly evenly hang on the dryer.
➜ Cotton clothes can be tumble dried. However, be careful when drying, as too high a temperature can lead to a lot of shrinkage of the fabric. To prevent creasing of knitted fabrics, remove clothes from the dryer right after the drying cycle, while they are still warm. If you have the option, avoid automatic drying.
