Recommendations for properly washing graduated compression stockings and tights

  • Solidea compression stockings can be washed by hand or in a washing machine at 40°C using a delicate wash cycle.
  • Use only detergents for delicate garments or neutral soaps.
  • Washing the entire tights is recommended.  In the case of hold-ups also wash the silicone flounce with delicate detergents.
  • Do not use softeners that can glue fibers together and close pores.
  • Never dry compression stockings in the sun or on the radiator. Keep them away from  sources of heat.
  • Do not chemically clean compression stockings.  Do not iron them or use chlorine.
  • Use of a washing net permits compression stockings to be washed in a particularly delicate way.
  • It is always best to have a spare compression stocking available.

Hand washing

It is very simple and quick to wash Solidea compression stockings:

  • wet the stockings;
  • soap with a delicate soap or detergent;
  • lightly rub the entire length of the stockings;
  • rinse well and wring out;
  • dab with a cloth in order to shorten drying times;
  • hang  them away from sources of heat;
  •   ...and they are ready to wear in the morning!

Washing symbols are given on the garment care label and on the package:
