Workout Wear

For best results, select a detergent that contains enzymes.

should not be used on items containing Lycra™. Fabric
softeners reduce wicking and are not recommended for
garments made to pull moisture away from the body.
Use this cycle for heavily soiled, durable garments - such

and stain removal, use the hottest water safe for the
fabrics being washed.

Spin Only
Use the Spin Only cycle anytime you want to drain water
from the washer and spin out the load or as a follow-up
