Instructions for the safe cleaning of your compression garments can be found either on the back of the box they came in, or in an additional pamphlet within the box. Some garments are easier to care for than others; Please refer to the instructions that came with your garment where possible.
JOBST compression garments are easy to care for. They are usually machine washable in warm water, and can be put in the dryer on low heat. Do not bleach, iron, or dry clean them.
Other garments may not be put in machines. Compression garments made by Complete Medical, Freedom Medical's house brand, are one of these. Please wash gently with mild soap or detergent in lukewarm or cold water. Do not wring or twist to get rid of excess water- simply rinse until water is clear and roll your garments into a towel to remove any extra water. Dry them away from heat and sunlight.
For those compression garments that for some reason do not have care instructions in or on the box, or are not listed here, we find it is a good idea to treat them like fine hosiery or dress socks, and hand wash them.
