Swimsuit season is rapidly approaching, and I don’t know about any of y’all, but my #1 athletic motivator is an arsenal of cute workout clothes. Unfortunately, I have an eye for Lululemon, as most millennials do, and I’m so sick of unraveling, fading, de-softening (if that’s a word), and ultimately ruining the very garments I invest so much money in. The tag usually says “Wash Cold with Light Colors,” but seriously? Way easier said than done, Lulu. Prior to doing a little bit of research, unless I made time to hand wash every delicate item in my laundry, something was bound to get discolored or destroyed. RIP 13 workout tops, 4 tassel kimonos, and too many intimates to count.

Well, anyways, no more. For all my fellow undomesticated ladies, here’s an easy-to-follow guide to washing delicates:

I’m proud to say that I’ve finally reached the glorifying point where I don’t dread washing delicates, including workout clothes, intimates, and formerly “hand wash suggested” garments, because I know I won’t ruin them the second I shut the washer/dryer door. Ever since I started using TIDE PODS®, I’ve been amazed at the fantastic job they’ve done cleaning fabrics I wouldn’t have ever thought could go in a washing machine. You can safely use Tide Pods to machine wash the following fabrics: Cotton, Acrylic, Wool, Lace, Polyamide, Polyurethane, Elastane, Polyester, Rayon, and Spandex.

Tide Pods contain a detergent, stain remover, and brightener in every capsule, and the Spring Meadow scent is to die for– and I’m not just saying that because I’m ecstatic that winter is officially over. For more information about how to get specific stain doozies out, check out Tide.com for an easy-to-follow guide, in addition to dozens of other pieces of oh-I-probably-should-know-that type information.

As for my outfit details, there’s not much to tell. My top is the Nouveau Limits Tank, and my leggings are the Wunder Under Pant III *Full-On Luxtreme Pants— both are from my aforementioned favorite athletic apparel boutique, Lululemon. Hope y’all had a great weekend!
