Most PARADOX ACTIVEWEAR garments are easy to care for, as we design our collections for busy people with active lives. However, it is best to ensure you keep your activewear in great shape so you can continue to enjoy your purchases and so they last longer.

The PARADOX ACTIVEWEAR Manufacturing Team conducts wash tests on each garment prior to determining the individual garment care instructions. Please read the care instructions on your PARADOX ACTIVEWEAR garments as each care label differs depending on the fabric and style.

We have listed general care instructions and care tips for you below:


  • Gentle, cold machine wash using a mild detergent

  • Some colours are not colourfast (pre-wash with one tablespoon of salt before use)

  • Do not leave wet. Do not soak. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean. Do not bleach

  • Avoid rough surfaces

  • Line dry in shade without delay. Do not dry in direct sunlight.

  • Do not use fabric softener as this inhibits the wicking capabilities in technical fabrics.

  • All garments have been pre-shrunk (they may shrink a maximum of 2% further)

  • Remove removable padding before washing

  • Wash in a garment bag where possible
