How to Clean Nike Dri-FIT Clothing

Designed to wick excess moisture away from your body during exercise, Nike Dri-FIT material is unique and very popular. It is made of microfiber and polyester.  It is important to clean Nike Dri-FIT items properly to avoid damaging the Dri-FIT features thereby inhibiting the performance of the material.

There are other brands of sports clothing that carry their own line of moisture-wicking material such as Adidas Clima-Lite and Under Armour Tech.

Cleaning Recommendations

Nike’s recommendations for how to clean Nike Dri-FIT shirts are:

  • Machine wash item inside out in cold water with like colors.
  • Use powdered laundry soap instead of liquid laundry soap.
  • Do not wring out excess water from the item.
  • Allow the item to hang to dry, or tumble dry in the dryer on low temparature. (Heating the Dri-FIT material in the dryer will reduce the effectiveness of the material and encourage static cling.)
  • Do not use bleach, dryer sheets or liquid fabric softener. If you accidentally use a dryer sheet with your Dri-FIT item, re-wash it.
  • Do not dry clean Dri-FIT items.
  • If you have to iron your Dri-FIT item, use a cool setting to avoid damaging any logos or designs.
