No rocket science here - close any zips, inside out is a good idea to protect the outer face of the fabric. All our fabrics are carefully selected to be as hard wearing as possible. A bit of tender loving care when required will keep them performing for years to come. The general principles are to clean or wash things as gently as required to get the product clean, as often as necessary. A salient point is to not store your clothing wet. It's pretty tempting to throw things into a pile when you get home shattered from a ride but storing things wet is probably the number one factor in shortening the life of a product. At the very least hang things up to air before you hit the couch.
