Lululemon leggings are all the rage for a reason: they're some of the best leggings on the market. They're certainly on the pricy side, but if you're going to drop some serious coin, you might as well do everything you can to keep them as close to their original pristine condition. Taking care of your leggings doesn't have to be a hard or tedious task, either. You are making an investment, so why not familiarize yourself with the wash and care instructions best suited for your pair of leggings?

Each pair of Lululemon leggings is made from top-notch fabric, meaning you might need to put in a little extra washing TLC. According to the athletic apparel retailer's website, any clothing item made from fabrics such as Luon, Luxtreme, Everlux, Nulu, Nulux, Rulu, Seamless, Swift, or Warpstreme should be washed in cold water with similar fabrics and hung dry or tumbled dry on low. These products also shouldn't be mixed with fabric softener or abrasive fabrics and materials like zippers, which could tear the leggings.

The same goes for leggings made from natural fabrics like merino wool; rather than throwing these in the dryer, these should lay flat to dry. Be sure to also read the inside tag carefully to determine if they are machine washable or should be hand washed. Likewise, some leggings may need to be turned inside out to protect their outer performance material as well as to prevent fading or snagging (this can also be found on the inside tag or online).

If you're worried or concerned about the best way to go about washing your Lulu leggings, personalized instructions can be found on the website for each item under the "material and care" section. There, you'll find what colours or fabrics you can wash with; what water temperature to use; how to dry your leggings; whether it's OK to bleach, dry-clean, or iron; and much more.
