And from then until now, they’ve amassed tens of thousands of positive reviews across their products. They also add new items constantly, which are highlighted on their store’s main page.

Taking Proper Care of Your Mippo Tops and Bottoms
As with all activewear, you don’t want to procrastinate when it comes to washing their products, especially if you’ve been exercising. The last thing that you want to do is to leave sweaty clothes lying around—that’ll only attract bacteria.
Don’t have time to do the laundry right away? At least air out the items. That’ll prevent them from smelling until you can wash them. For more information on how to clean the various items, be sure to read the rest of the post because that’s what we’ll be going over below!
What Fibers Are Their Activewear Made Of?
When it comes to washing your clothes, you want to pay attention to what fabrics they’re made of. That’s what determines the washing instructions, after all. Take cotton, for instance, it should never be exposed to heat as it’s prone to shrinking.
Anyway, here’s what you need to know their materials:
Modal is a semi-synthetic fabric that’s made from the cellulose of beech-tree pulp. Not only is it eco-friendly, but it’s also long-lasting with its long fibers and tight weave. For one thing, it doesn’t rip easily. It’s also resistant to pilling, which makes it suitable for everyday clothes. On top of that, it’s breathable. The only thing is that it’s not hypoallergenic (it may trigger allergic reactions in some people). It can also be a bit more expensive compared to other types of fabric.
Spandex is a stretchy synthetic fiber that’s made from polyurethane; it’s often used to make stretchable garments such as leggings, tights, swimsuits, and sports bras. However, it must be combined with other fibers such as nylon or polyester—it’s much too fragile to be used alone. With that said, it does have several advantages. Not only is it soft and comfortable to wear, but it’s also resistant to perspiration.
Polyester is a type of plastic material that’s derived from petroleum. Known for its durability, it has strong fibers that are resistant to wrinkles and stretching. At the same time, it’s lightweight and quick-drying, which makes it ideal for many types of outerwear. On top of all that, it’s inexpensive. The only drawback is that it tends to trap moisture against the skin.
Nylon is similar to polyester in that it’s also derived from petrochemicals. Originally created as a silk substitute, it’s soft, flexible, and drapes incredibly well. It’s also durable in that it resists tears, abrasions, and water. On top of all that, it tends to feel cool against the skin. Like most synthetic fibers, however, it’s sensitive to high temperatures and doesn’t tolerate direct sunlight.
Two Easy Ways to Wash Your Mippo Yoga Pants
Their yoga pants are all made from synthetic fibers (either a nylon/spandex blend or a polyester/spandex blend). In other words, it’s perfectly fine to throw them in the washer. Just make sure to check the care tag label first so you know what to do. Of course, you can also wash them by hand with a bit of soap. We’ll be going over both methods below.
Machine Washing Mippo Yoga Pants So That they’ll Last
Make sure the side pockets are empty. Don’t leave anything in there that you don’t want to be washed. Once you’ve done that, turn the yoga pants inside-out. There are a couple of reasons for this. First off, it’ll prevent the outer layer from wearing out. Not only that, but it’ll also expose the inside of the fabric, which is where most of the dirt and sweat tends to accumulate.
Don’t throw your yoga pants directly in the washing machine. Always use a laundry bag, especially if you’re washing a mixed load. It’ll act as a barrier so that they won’t rub against your other garments during the wash cycle. For those who don’t have a mesh bag, you can improvise with a clean pillowcase and an elastic (so that you can tie off one of the ends).
Tip: Feel free to wash your Mippo yoga pants with other activewear. For example, you can put them together with your tights, shorts, leggings, or tank tops. The only thing that you want to be colorful with is the colors (ie. separate lights from darks)
Add one scoop of ACTIVE detergent to the washer once you’ve thrown in all of your laundry. Feel free to add more if you’re washing a lot of items at once. But don’t add any fabric softener. It’ll leave a layer of chemical residue on your pants, which will trap dirt and oils. Not to mention that it can also trigger allergic reactions in some people. Try using white vinegar instead if you want to soften your clothes—half to one cup will suffice. Just add it during the final rinse!
For Mippo yoga pants (and most activewear in general), it’s best to use a gentle wash cycle with cold water. Remember, you don’t want to expose these fabrics to heat as that can cause them to warp.
Take the yoga pants out of the machine as soon as they’re done washing and hang them up to dry. You can also lay them flat to dry on a clean surface. Just don’t stuff them in the dryer or expose them to direct sunlight.
Hand Washing Mippo Yoga Pants
To hand-wash your yoga pants, all you need is a sink or bucket. Fill it with cool water so that it’s three-quarters full and add half a scoop of ACTIVE detergent. Slosh the water back and forth with your hands to dissolve the powder.
Double-check the pockets; make sure there’s nothing left inside before placing the yoga pants in soapy water. For the best results, turn them inside out. That’ll expose the dirty layer so that they’ll come in contact with the detergent.
Gently wave the pants through the water to work in the soap suds. Let them soak for about 15 minutes afterward. You want to give the detergent time to dissolve the dirt and oils. Don’t leave them in the sink for too long, though, otherwise, the colors may bleed.
Empty the sink and refill it with clean water from the tap. Rinse the yoga pants a few times to get rid of the soap suds. If you want, you can also hold them under a stream of running water. Either way, you want to rinse until the water runs clear.
Squeeze the excess water out of the yoga pants and place them on a clean towel. Roll it up to get rid of the extra moisture. From there, you can hang them up on a clothesline to dry. You can also use a laundry rack as long as you’re not exposing the fabric to direct sunlight. And as always, you want to skip the dryer.
How to Wash Mippo Tank Tops Properly
Their tank tops are similar to their yoga pants in that they’re also machine washable. If anything, the process is quite similar. If you want, you can even wash them together in the same load.
Machine Washing Your Mippo Tank Tops
Start by turning the tank tops inside out. Any stains should be spot treated before washing. Also, it’s highly recommended that you use a mesh laundry bag. That way, your tanks will look new for longer. You can also put more than one in the same bag—as long as it’s big enough.
Place the laundry bag in the washing machine (remember to zip it up all the way). Add the rest of your clothes and pour in a scoop of ACTIVE detergent to the drum/dispenser. Avoid fabric softener. Consider using distilled white vinegar instead as a softener.
Choose a delicate setting and press the start button. Make sure to choose cold water; you don’t want to use hot water as the heat can damage the fibers.
Let the cycle run. Wait until it’s completely finished before taking out your tank tops and other clothes. Place them on a clothesline or drying rack and allow them to dry naturally. Don’t tumble dry; the heat will likely damage the tank tops.
Hand Washing Your Mippo Tank Tops
Fill a large sink or bucket with water so that it’s 3/4 full. Add 1/2 a scoop of ACTIVE detergent and slosh the water back and forth to dissolve the powder. There should be lots of soap suds.
Turn the tank top inside out and place it in the sink. Make sure that it’s completely immersed and covered by the solution. Leave it there for 15-20 minutes.
Rinse the tank top thoroughly under a stream of running water. Continue until all the soap suds are gone. Hang dry afterward.
