1. Soak your compression socks in a small tub, sink or basin filled with cool water then remove. Add a mild detergent or soap to the water and mix the water with your hand to circulate the soap. Place the socks back in the soapy water and let them soak for 5 to 10 minutes.
2. After soaking, gently rub the stockings to remove any dirt and oil. Squeeze them out and rinse to remove any soap. Be sure to squeeze them gently and do not pull the stockings as pulling can result in an imperfect fit when trying to wear them again.
3. Once rinsed lay the stockings out flat dry or hang the stockings out to dry. Do not place the wet socks heat and d o not wring them as it may damage the weave of the compression stocking.
4. For machine wash, place the socks in a linen or mesh laundry bag for extra protection and wash using a gentle cycle.
Do not use fabric softener or a detergent with a softener, as this will damage the fiber.
Avoid drying directly in the sun or on a radiator.
Wash your socks after each time you wear the socks. Washing brings back the elasticity to the socks and removes build up of oils and dirt.
Do not wear a pair of compression socks for more than three Months. Many people replace their compression socks after 2 months. Just because the socks may look good does not mean that they still have the proper compression.
