What happens when the spot isn’t liquid?
If the spot isn’t liquid, there is no guarantee that the fabric’s patented qualities will work. However spots caused by semi-liquids such as ketchup, honey or chocolate can generally be removed by pouring a lot of water on the fabric.
Is it as efficient for dark spots like chocolate?
As long as the spot is liquid it can be rinsed with water, no matter what colour it is.
How can a spot be removed?
If you get a spot on your garment, pour water on it to remove it but do not rub it. The fabric’s resistance to spots works for all kinds of liquids (wine, coffee, sauces).
What about odours?
Perspiration odours don’t come from perspiration but from bacteria. Odours develop when perspiration stagnates. INDUO® prevents perspiration from being absorbed and stored in the fabric’s fibres. Thus you will avoid unpleasant odours.
Can I wear a garment in INDUO® fabric to go to work on a bicycle?
INDUO® fabric was conceived for everyday garments. It cannot replace a sport T-shirt.
Does the fabric prevent the wearer from perspiring?
No, the fabric does not react on your body. However, it helps limit the formation of sweat rings and odours.
Will sweat rings form?
The fabric is breathable, it strongly diminishes rings, outside of specific medical situations or extreme conditions. If a ring does form, it can rapidly disappear without leaving an odour when you go to a cool, dry place.

It is not necessary. It is even advisable, if you are sweating, not to wear it because the undershirt retains perspiration and limits the capacity of the INDUO® fabric to evacuate the sweat.

INDUO® fabric has a good opacity. There’s no need to wear an undershirt underneath it. However that depends on each person’s preferences.
