Thermal knee stabilising supports help to retain your body's natural heat, which can aid in the healing of a knee injury. These supports can also protect your knee from excessive injuries while you are running or participating in a sporting event. As with any clothing item, thermal knee supports should be washed whenever they have been worn for a significant period of time in order to eliminate germs, stains and odours from the inside and outside of the supports.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • White vinegar
  • Antibacterial dish soap

  1. 1

    Pour 1 cup antibacterial dish soap and 1 cup white vinegar into the clean sink or clean bucket. Fill the rest of the bucket with warm (not hot) faucet water.

  2. 2

    Soak the knee support for 45 minutes to an hour.

  3. 3

    Scrub the inside and outside of the knee support with the soft-bristled tooth brush. Scrub the support while it is still underwater, as doing so makes it easier to remove dirt and debris from the support.

  4. 4

    Remove the knee support from the liquid. Inspect the item, and resoak the support if you notice dirt or other debris on it. Otherwise, proceed to Step 5.

  5. 5

    Rinse the inside and outside of the knee support thoroughly with warm tap water.

  6. 6

    Hang the knee support either in a sunny spot outdoors or in front of a fan. Make sure the knee support is fully dry before you put it away.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not place knee supports in a washing machine or dryer, as the temperature extremes inside these two devices could cause the supports to shrink.
