Steps to Prolong the Life of Your Ejis Undershirts, Boxer Briefs and Dress Socks

May 22, 2019

Now that you’ve invested in high quality Ejis sweat proof undergarments, you’ll want to properly care for them so they last a long time. Our products are tasked with the awesome responsibility of keeping you cool, dry and odor-free, and we think they deserve a little extra attention to keep them functioning to their fullest potential.

 

While most Ejis products are designed for machine washing and machine drying, there are a few simple steps you can take to ensure they keep working at optimal performance.

Do's & Don'ts of Caring for Your Sweat Proof Undershirts and Boxer Briefs

 

Before Washing

 

At the end of the day or after your workout, immediately take off your Ejis undershirts and boxer briefs. Like our bodies, sweat proof undergarments also need to breathe after being saturated by sweat.

 

Turn them inside out and allow them to thoroughly dry before placing in the hamper with other dirty clothes. This protects your Ejis products as well as your other dirty clothes from mildew and other unpleasant odors.

 

Don’t be alarmed if you see stains in the pit area of your Ejis undershirt. Sweat stains occur when your sweat interacts with your antiperspirant. Your work horse of an undershirt is simply doing its job by protecting your dress shirts and outer clothing. The pit stains should disappear after a regular wash. But if they don’t, simply apply a stain remover or use one of these recommended treatments before washing.

 

Washing and Drying

 

Sweat Proof Micro Modal Undershirts and Boxer Briefs

 

Micro modal fabric is the industry’s five-star standard because it is lightweight, extremely soft and breathable. In addition, the fabric used for our micro modal undershirts and boxer briefs can be machine washed and machine dried while retaining its shape.

 

While the fabric is durable, our sweat proof protection is sensitive to certain additives and high heat. As such avoid bleach and vinegar, high temperature washing and drying, and ironing.

 

      • Make sure your sweat proof undershirts and boxer briefs are inside out when you put them in the washer. This allows the water and detergent to make unimpeded contact with the areas of sweat protection.
      • Wash in cold or warm water on a low cycle with like colors.
      • Machine dry on low heat. Or if time and space allows, hang dry in sunshine. This is Mother Nature’s method of refreshing laundry.
      • Always use the recommended amount of your regular detergent.
      • Do not use bleach or vinegar.
      • Do not dry clean.

Sweat Proof Cotton Undershirts

 

Unlike Ejis micro modal undershirts, our cotton undershirts need a bit more care to retain their original shape and size. These undershirts are made from 100% cotton, which naturally shrinks after washing. Cotton shrinks because the tension applied to the yarn during the manufacturing process is released by heat from the washer, dryer and even sunlight, which causes the fabric to reduce in size. Additionally, the agitation of a regular wash cycle contributes to causing natural fibers like cotton to shrink.

 

To minimize shrinking, stick to these laundering instructions:

 

      • Make sure your cotton sweat proof undershirts are inside out when you put them in the washer. This allows the water and detergent to make unimpeded contact with the areas of sweat protection.
      • Only use cold water when washing. Cold water prevents shrinking and cleans just as well as warm or hot water.
      • Hand wash, if possible.
      • If you can’t hand wash, then use a delicate wash cycle. This will agitate less while still getting your undershirts clean.
      • Hang or lay flat to dry. Be sure to avoid direct sunlight. Avoid the tumble dryer if you can. Need to speed up drying? Have a fan blow on your undershirts while they are drying.
      • If you must use the dryer, use the lowest setting possible and remove the clothes while slightly damp and allow them to air dry. (Please note: this is not recommended as heat can cause further shrinking.)
      • Always use the recommended amount of your regular detergent.
      • To protect the sweat proof layer, do not use bleach or vinegar, dry clean or iron.

Socks

 

Our odor-fighting socks are some of the best dress socks on the market. Aside from being exceptionally comfortable and designed to stay in place all day, they prevent odor like a boss. Kiss your stinky feet and shoes good-bye! Some customers even claim their feet stay drier throughout the day.

 

Because our socks do not have sweat proof layers like our undershirts and boxer briefs, their laundering is not as restrictive.

 

      • Machine wash warm with like colors.
      • Machine dry on low.
      • Always use the recommended amount of your regular detergent.
      • If needed, use non-chlorine bleach.
      • By following a few simple steps when caring for all of your Ejis sweat proof undergarments, they will continue to help you stay dry, fresh and confident.
