Knowledge is also key when it comes to efforts to protect the environment. Many people want to help
but sometimes they are unaware of the best practices or products to buy. Velotec works to educate the
public and our customers on the best methods to preserve and protect their products. We recommend
using only non-bio washing powder. Regular BIO washing powder, and particularly liquid seems to
break down Lycra.
We want customers to know that washing your cycling kit with the right detergent will help the
environment by not breaking down chemicals in the Lycra that get washed into our water; but it will
also make it look better and last longer. Using an environmentally friendly product, and less than the
recommended amount of detergent, if possible, also helps protect the environment and preserves
clothing. The longer we can keep the kit looking and feeling new, the better; and if it helps the
environment, we can all be happier.
