Care and cleaning
So you just spent way more money than you ever thought you would spend on cycling clothing, now how do you take care of it? Rapha will guarantee your clothes for life against defects, and will even repair them for free when you crash, but you need to care for them so that any degradation isn’t caused by the way you wash them.
The labels on the wool products call for delicate cycle, non-bio detergent, and hang drying. 2 out of three won’t cut it, and if you are in the US you may be asking what “non-bio” detergent even means. Non-bio means no enzymes. However, this isn’t always spelled out on detergent labels (believe me, I have been the only person in a grocery store who has read this stuff before). Basically, if you get a “free and clear” detergent, you are probably enzyme free. They market it as hypoallergenic usually. Trader Joe’s detergent is enzyme free too, but I have something better.
I wash all of my kit, wool or not, on delicate with about a cup of white vinegar. It will take out sweat stains, and leaves things smelling like nothing at all. No perfumes or traces of your last sweaty ride. When you are rolling around and the spring blossoms are blooming, you’d rather smell those than “mountain breeze” or whatever they say Tide smells like anyway. Colors will not fade with vinegar, either. Total cost for a gallon of white vinegar, last I checked, was around $3.
After they are washed, hang them dry and you are all set.
One last thing, if you use chamois cream, it can tend to build up in the creases of your chamois where it is seen to the bib. I soak the corner of a washcloth in a bit of white vinegar and scrub 2-3x until I see no more residue.

Read this. Post haste. Thank him later with burgers.
