How to Wash Your Sauna Suit

How to Wash Your Sauna Suit

So you heard all about the many benefits of using a sauna suit, you found the one that was perfect for you, and you bought it! Awesome - but what's next?

In order to maximize the lifetime and preserve the quality of your new sauna suit, it's important to care for it correctly. One of the most important aspects of sauna suit maintenance is cleaning it after each use. For that reason, we created this guide to help you figure out the right way to wash your specific sauna suit.

The first question you need to ask yourself is, what type of sauna suit am I using? Different materials have different cleaning needs and techniques. In this blog, we'll cover cleaning 3 different types of sauna suits, most of which are available through Kewlioo.com

Polymer Sauna Suits

Anyone who has experience with heat trapping polymer knows not only that it makes for some of the most effective saunawear on the market, but that it's also some of the easiest to care for!

While it is recommended that you wash after every use, especially when exercising, don't fret - the process is quick and easy. All you need to do is:

  • Machine wash on a light cycle with cold water
  • Hang dry on a line (do not tumble dry) 
  • Make sure never to iron any polymer-based heat trapping sweatwear

Although we don't yet carry any full-body polymer sauna suits, be sure to check out our heat-trapping polymer leggings, arm trimmers, men's t-shirts and vests, and women's t-shirts and vests.

Neoprene Sauna Suits 

For older types of sauna suit, such as our Unisex Neoprene Sauna Suit, the maintenance can be slightly less convenient, but it's still not too much trouble.  Again, these products should definitely be cleaned after each use as they do inspire a lot of perspiration during use. 

To clean your neoprene sauna suits:

  • You should HAND wash rather than machine wash all neoprene products
  • Use cold water and a gentle detergent while washing
  • Hang dry - avoiding machine washing, drying, or ironing


Heavy Duty Anti-Rip Weight Loss Sauna Suit

Lastly, for those who use a traditional 100% PVC sauna suit,  the process is very similar to those who have neoprene sweatwear, it just may take a bit longer due to being a larger garment. Again, remember to wash after each use.

When washing: 

  • Use cold water to HAND wash your sauna suit
  • Use a gentle detergent to remove sweat
  • Hang dry on a line
  • Do not machine wash, dry, or iron, to avoid damage

Conclusion

It's our personal opinion that, from a maintenance standpoint, heat-trapping polymer is one of the most effective AND easiest to care for types of sauna suit on the market. Save time by machine washing without sacrificing quality or effectiveness, and try our best performing sweatwear today.
