Silver is a well-documented antimicrobial, that has been shown to kill bacteria and fungi. So you do not need to wash it as frequently as traditional garments. 

It is also made with a Conductive matter, which is a specified material that directs electricity and blocks and/or redirects the flow of electrical currents. So it is extremely important that you follow the care instructions to keep the conductivity strong in the lining.

The absolute best way to keep this garment conductive for the longest possible time is to hand wash in room temperature water or spot cleaning as needed and hang to air dry. See cleaning solution recommendations below.

Outer layer: 95% organic Cotton, 5% spandex

Lining: 83% Modal, 17% Nylon with 99% Pure Silver knit



Shades, color differences and discolorations are not manufacturing faults and are part of the normal look of the product.

At a washing temperature of 60°C / 140°F, it can be washed more than 50 times without any alteration in its specified characteristics. A higher washing temperature is not necessary due to the product’s anti-bacterial characteristics. Do no use disinfectant, cleaning products that contain chlorine, nor any fabric softeners.

Dry cleaning will permanently damage the product!

We strongly advise against any kind of bleaching. Please do not use chlorine. The silver coating will be damaged by the chlorine and will lose its functionality.

"All garments made with conductive metals such as silver, copper and/or nickel will lose its shielding ability (conductivity) as the garments are used. If anyone claims this to be false RUN the other way. The way the garment is cared for will determine its shielding power over time."
