Steps for washing Tabio socks and tights

Here we explain the recommended washing steps one by one.

1. Turn the socks inside out. This is a very important step. The outer material of the sock is often natural, such as cotton, wool, and cashmere, so it is fragile. On the other hand the inner material is often artificial, such as nylon and polyurethane, and therefore more resistant to washing. Turning socks inside out protects the outer material from rubbing and thus makes them last longer.

Prevent smells from remaining after washing...
In addition to stains, sources of unpleasant odours such as sweat and body odour permeate the inside of socks. This is why turning socks is also effective in removing stains and odours that may remain after washing. So by doing this you kill two birds with one stone!

2. Use a mild detergent. Do not use bleach or chlorine detergent.

3. Wash dark and light colours separately to avoid colour transfer.

4. Machine wash with water under 40 degrees and on the delicate programme or by hand as directed.
For hand washing, we recommend washing with light and gentle pressure.

5. Dry in the open air and in the shade. Avoid using the tumble dryer. And for wool and silk products, we advise you to dry them flat to keep their perfect shape.
For other models, it is recommended to suspend them from the top by placing the clothes peg at the level of the elastic band, to avoid water staying on this part, which could lead to faster degradation of the polyurethane threads.

Washing net

The washing net protects clothes from rubbing and stretching, preventing them from rolling up. It is particularly recommended for lace, transparent and delicate items, so that they do not deteriorate when in contact with other garments that may have hooks and zips.
