Caring for your Blackfort Products
Use a mild detergent and avoid using fabric conditioners, this affects the moisture wicking properties. If you do use fabric conditioners, wash once again without, at a low temp and your product will be good as new. Repeated washing however with fabric conditioner will reduce the life of your products.
Silicone Riding Tights - avoid using fabric softeners on silicone tights, this will reduce the life of silicone. Our riding tights are very durable when washed correctly.
We recommend using Nikwak Basewash on sports fabrics due to its gentle cleaning abilities!Line / air dry flat only - do not expose the silicone print to direct heat from radiators / tumble dryers etc this can affect and reduce the life of the silicone print.
Do not iron our riding tights, base layers and sports tees (more time for riding now) our products technical fabric returns to its original shape once washed.
Wash all our products inside out to project your silicone print. Avoid washing or placing near items that contain Velcro or abrasive materials.
