Kinkly explains Elaspan

Elaspan is lightweight and stretchable. It is also resistant to detergent, sweat, oils, and lotions. Clothes made with Elaspan can last a long time with proper care. Spandex clothes should be washed with mild detergent and room temperature or cool water. Don't spin-dry as this might stretch out the material. Air dry when possible. Don't boil or use bleach to clean clothing made of Elaspan.
