Bauerfeind MalleoTrain S Washing Instructions

For best care practices, hand washing is recommended to ensure the longevity of your brace.  The sewn-in label of the brace also has washing instructions as well as the product name, size, manufacturer and CE mark.

Hand washing instructions:

  • Always secure Velcro fasteners to the strap to prevent damage to the knit fabric.
  • Add warm water (30°C) to a sink, tub or basin, mix a small amount of liquid detergent.  Do not use bleach, stain removers, fabric softener or Woolite.
  • Submerge the brace into the soapy water and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Carefully wash the brace by moving it with your hands and kneading the material to remove any dirt or debris.
  • Rinse several times with water and gently squeeze to remove soap, but don’t wring the brace out. 
  • Remove as much water as possible once rinse is clear of soap.
  • Dry the brace on a flat surface away from heat sources such as radiators or direct sun.
  • Wash your brace regularly so the fabric retains its compressive properties.

Washing machine instructions:

  • Secure the Velcro fasteners to the strap to prevent damage.
  • Wash in a mesh delicate bag, separately from other garments.
  • Use mild liquid laundry detergent at 30°C on the gentle or delicate cycle. Do not use a spin cycle speed greater than 500 rpm.
  • Let your brace air dry flat, keep away from direct heat sources such as the dryer, radiator or direct sunlight as this could damage the materials and make the brace less effective.

Proper washing and drying will help your knit support maintain its elasticity and original fit.
