What is Hosiery Mate?
Hosiery Mate is a gentle one-step wash that cleans, conditions, and deodorizes hose in just 3 minutes. This unique, patented formula also strengthens and softens delicate fibers to prolong wear life. Hosiery Mate also eliminates static cling and preserves elasticity and color. You will love the silkier feel and lavender scent of your cleaner, fresher hosiery after this treatment. Hosiery Mate is safe to use on compression hose.
How does it work?
Adding Hosiery Mate to water releases an emulsified resin polymer that electrostatically bonds to the fibers. It creates a protective coating while allowing the mild detergent system to lift out soil and perspiration. The soil is then kept in suspension in the water, rather than re-deposited onto the hosiery. Each pair comes out clean. Rinsing is unnecessary.
Why a special wash for hosiery?
Each time you launder your hosiery with soap or detergent, especially in a washing machine, the nylon fibers deteriorate. Weakened fibers are more susceptible to runs, snags, and sagging. Hosiery Mate bonds to the fibers and strengthens them.
