  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. 
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run. 
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like EcoverEcostoreEarthwise or Aware.
  • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellent finish. 

  • Wash your gloves separately - the synthetic suede can cause havoc staining other clothing.
  • Air dry only - no dryers for these puppies.

    Longlasting Quickdraws

    The Quickdraws are comfortable, easy to pull on and off and the padding on the hands is great quality and in the right spots. The gloves are very good quality and extremely durable.

    Recently I had a bike accident after a roadie did an abrupt U-turn as I was overtaking him. Result: left hand through spokes of his wheel and the fingernail mostly detached from my ring finger (also finger tip broken). What bike glove was I wearing? None other but my favourite pair of red Quickdraws, the only pair of gloves my partner reckons are acceptable in her company. In convalescence, a glove review was called for and the near-loss of my fingertip was Ground Effect's and my gain. My new blue Quickdraws (2 pairs) are an excellent fit and thanks to a sympathetic ambo, I think I can sew up the index finger of the left red one. I'll keep the repair concealed. I might get away with it...
