+Washing

  • 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 Ecostore, Earthwise 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 repellant finish.

  • Wash colours separately.

      Toe rags: same same

      Like all the Ground Effect stuff, these things last longer than anyone has a right to expect. I have several pairs (my wife says too many but she’s wrong), possibly because they last longer than expected. If I had to be super picky and find a fault, it is that little stones and grit can get in the top of the inner cuff and get into my shoes if I’m walking. Probably should have been biking.

      Superb

      It's a toss-up between Toe Rags and Quick Draws gloves as my favourite Ground Effect gear. Both are excellent and although I've never actually worn-out a pair of either, I keep buying them as my only consumerist treat. There's nothing like a brand new pair to start the season on a high. Toe Rags really are comprtable and the 'pull tab' on the back is a really nice touch.

      Great socks, super tough and comfy. Still wearing pairs, bought in 2013, after hundreds of washes and wears. Highly recommend!
