Breeches Washing Guide

 How to wash your riding breeches.

So you've invested in a pair of Equeene breeches, and you want to make sure they last as long as possible. Well, you're in luck because Team Equeene is here to share their top tips on how to keep your breeches smelling fresh, looking clean, and feeling fabulous!

Tip #1: Turn Them Inside Out

Before tossing your breeches into the washing machine, make sure to turn them inside out. This will help protect the delicate outer fabric and keep it looking like new for longer. Plus, it'll help prevent any unwanted fading or pilling.

Tip #2: Use a Gentle Cycle

When it comes to washing your breeches, opt for a gentle cycle on your washing machine. This will help prevent any unnecessary wear and tear on the fabric, ensuring that your breeches stay in top condition for many rides to come.

Tip #3: Skip the Fabric Softener

While fabric softener may make your other clothes feel extra soft, it's not the best choice for your breeches. The chemicals in fabric softener can actually break down the technical fabric of your breeches, leading to decreased durability and performance. Stick to a mild detergent instead.

Tip #4: Air Dry Only

Avoid throwing your breeches in the dryer at all costs! The heat from the dryer can damage the fabric and elastic in your breeches, causing them to lose their shape and fit. Instead, hang them up to air dry in a well-ventilated area for the best results. Not to mention the amount of energy your dryer uses, save energy bill whilst helping the environment by putting your breeches out to dry! Save the planet kids!! 

Tip #5: Spot Clean as Needed

If you notice a small stain or dirt spot on your breeches, don't panic! Simply spot clean the area with a gentle detergent and a soft cloth. This will help prevent the need for frequent full washes, extending the life of your breeches.

With these tips from Team Equeene, you'll be able to keep your Equeene Equestrian breeches looking and feeling their best for years to come. Happy riding!
