Directions on taking care of the Polar Soft Strap:

Rinse the strap under cool running water for 20 seconds after every use and hang to dry. Clean the strap gently with a mild soap and water solution when needed in the sink probably once a week.  Do not use moisturizing soaps, because they can leave residue on the straps.  Do not soak, iron, dry clean or bleach the strap.  Do not stretch the strap or bend the electrode areas sharply.  You may wash the strap in a washing machine in cold water in a mesh bag but do not dry in a dryer.

 

If a student loses his strap or recks it by not cleaning it properly, he or she will have to pay for the Polar strap. The cost of the Polar strap is $14.50.
