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
- Soft-bristled toothbrush
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.
Soak the knee support for 45 minutes to an hour.
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.
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.
Rinse the inside and outside of the knee support thoroughly with warm tap water.
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.
