Love your Uhip

With the right care, you and your Uhip will be inseparable for many years. Here are a few easy steps to prolong function, look, and benefit of the material is made of.

First of all - If you get dirt on it (does dogs paws or horse muzzle print sound familiar?) WHIPE it off. As deeper this stain goes, more damage it will be made for all technical details of the fabric.

Wash your garment if it has gotten very sweaty or dirty as this weakens the performance of the garment. They can reduce the fabric’s breathability and damage the water repellent surface. The dirt can even allow for moisture to leak though the fabric. Wash your garments inside out so that detergent and soil water can be centrifuged out of the membrane and pad. Make sure to button up and that zippers are zipped and closed when washing. This will minimize the risk that fabrics get caught on sharp edges during the wash.

Avoid to use fabric softener. They have a negative impact on the garments performance and the environment. The fabric softener leaves a coating on the fibers of the garment, which affects the moisture transportation and breathability of the garment.

RE-IMPREGNATE

Most of Uhip's garments have DWR treatments - durable water repellency. The purpose of these is to make the outer fabric water resistant.

Hang dry. Just remember to introduce heat to the garment after washing to reactivate the water resistant surface of the outer fabric. Use a drying cabinet, dryer or iron. Make sure you monitor the heat so the garment does not melt.

When it wears off after a few seasons, the outer fabric of your shell layer will start to get wet even though the membrane will still keep water from passing through the garment. When this happens, you can re-apply the DWR with a wash-in product or a spray. Always use an organic DWR.

We remind you to always read the care labels and instructions to make the love of Uhip as long as possible!
