HOW MANY TIMES CAN I WEAR MY ZENKAI GEAR BEFORE I HAVE TO WASH IT?

Some Zenkai athletes report wearing their base layer for one month before needing to wash it, while runners find they can wear their apparel for 10 days over 100 miles without washing. Every body is different so we recommend smelling your apparel after each use and tossing it in the wash once an odor becomes noticeable.

ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL WASHING INSTRUCTIONS FOR ZENKAI APPAREL?

As with other premium pima cotton garments, we recommend washing your Zenkai pieces in cold water with a mild detergent only — no bleach or softener. The most eco-friendly way to dry your apparel is to hang it, but you can also machine dry on medium heat. Do not add fabric sheets or any other softeners to the dryer. Do not wring dry or dry clean.

If you really want to, you can wash after every use, but remember that less washing means less environmental impact and a longer garment life.

IS ZENKAI APPAREL PRE-SHRUNK?

Yes, all Zenkai apparel is pre-shrunk. However, since it is cotton-based, if you dry your apparel on high heat, there is a chance it will shrink more. The best way to preserve your gear is to hang dry or dry on low-medium heat.

WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO REMOVE SPILLS?

To remove a spill the best thing to do is to rinse it with water or tug/pull on the garment to “pop” the liquid off. Do not rub the stain, as this will force it into the fabric. If the stain leaves a mark, wash as per our washing instructions.

WHAT DO I DO AFTER MY WORKOUT AND BETWEEN WASHINGS?

You can train, play and sweat in Zenkai apparel multiple times without washing. Shake or snap excess moisture from the garment (it helps to turn garment inside out for this) and then hang to dry. Just give your garment the smell test to know when it is time to wash.
