If you want to keep your cycling kit in the best condition, it’s worth using a specialist washing product. Grangers Active Wash is specifically designed for washing technical gear. It may not leave it with a scent like Chanel - in fact it doesn’t smell of anything in particular - but it will keep your cycling clothing clean and working at its best.

To work effectively, cycling clothing needs to wick sweat away from your skin, so that it can evaporate on the outer surface of the garment. That means that the fabric mustn’t get damp or wet out, so it’s usually made of hydrophobic polyester yarns.
